After Reviewing The Dark Secrets Take The Taco Bell Challenge

One of the issues that I am having is what percentage thaey say it really is. Here is an ad that they have run about being sued. One part says that their meat is 100% USDA inspected. Further down they say it is 88% beef and 12% secret recipe. Now is it 100% beef or is their 88% beef inspected 100% of the time?
When I cook I don't use percentages, the beef I buy is 93/7, 93% beef 3% fat. If their beef is 88% that would make their fat content 12%. When my beef is cooked it is still moist and juicy, so they should not have to add 3% water to their already 12% fat content to make it moist and juicy. Then further they breakdown the percentages in the recipe
So could all this confusion and controversy be in their wording?
They are definatey defending themselves as they should.
Do I have an issue wuth the mixture they use I do not. I worked as a food processor several years ago. You may be suprised to here that to say fortified with vitaman C may mean ading a frozen can of concentrated lemon or orange juice to the mix of another juice based on volume. Or that I added hydrogen peroxide to egg whites when making egg substatute. All these companies add something for coloring or texture. Carotine was added to the egg for coloring when making scrambles.
So when I read the article I take the 88% as the overall mixture of the meet being 88% beef. That beef is 100% inspected and approved and is pure beef. To put this into context for you at home your sphagetti meet is 100% beef but after adding spices or sauce it is now 80% beef but still 100% inspected beef.
As a matter of fact I now want a stuffed burrito so here I go.
