A LESSON IN CREAMY CREAMY ASIAN APRICOT SAUCE Hey, I find it strange that so-called food scientists have isolated a taste sensation in soy sauce or shoyu called umami. I have yet to experience it. Maybe my buds are lacking those needed for that discernment. If not lacking, I can't find anything, in my global-sensitive... Continue Reading →
Most of what I see at rallies where people protest prejudicial social conditions of every type, including those of other species, is a lot of screaming, mostly screaming in fact. Such loud, vicious, teeth-bearing, gut-ripping vitriol that it becomes worthy of the name assault. But it isn't working. Assault never does do anything but get... Continue Reading →
Don't wait for me to contact you. Perfect your product now. Contains No Animal Products. Sharon
There are two benefits that just about every seller of a supplement claims about their product. It staves off Alzheimer's disease and contributes to weight loss. Okay, so they usually state, "may", but what difference does it make, except in a legal sense, when those words are associated with the product and is under the... Continue Reading →
The USA needs a leader that's half Republican and half Democrat dusted with liberty for all. I think Donald Trump can be that leader. Unlike Hillary Clinton he doesn't expect the populace to do his job. Although I voted for Hillary Clinton and have been a lifelong Democrat, now that I see the true character... Continue Reading →
You can use the word "cunt" on Facebook to disparage a woman - or a man accused of acting like a woman. You can't use the word "nigger" on Facebook to disparage a race of humans. Yet, you can set a dog on fire, and Facebook - via Mark Zuckerberg - not only allows it... Continue Reading →
You wouldn't call seaweed vegan. Seaweed is seaweed all by itself. It's a plant. You wouldn't call tomatoes or blueberries or nuts vegan. They're plants. RECIPES are vegan or not vegan, animal-free or animal-based. If the recipe contains no animal products, it's vegan or animal-free. If the recipe contains some part of the animal, then...

Did you know that many wine companies use egg whites and/or potassium caseinate (an animal milk protein) to purify their wines? They discovered years ago that unwanted particles in the wine would stick to these substances when added to the wine, making the removal of them easier, leaving a pure and clarified product.
You probably already know that food manufacturers have to label products made in a facility that uses milk and eggs, even though the actual recipe of the animal-free product you buy doesn’t contain animal products. It’s because some of the animal product, which also happens to be an allergen, ends up in your vegan product because it’s made on the same machinery – even though the policy is to clean the manufacturing machinery between recipes.
Many wine companies, because of the high cost of using egg whites are switching to a clay method which works just as…

A Food Network cooking show called Chopped presents four competing chefs with three different mystery baskets of ingredients for them to prepare an appetizer, entrée and dessert respectively in a designated amount of time.
Today, on the episode I watched, one of the mystery ingredients for the appetizer was vegan hot dogs.
Amanda Freitag, one of the judges who has competed for Iron Chef, informed the world that the only reason vegans eat vegan hot dogs was so they wouldn’t feel left out at a barbecue. She also claimed that they don’t have much flavor.
Chris Santos piped in that he’d fry them up in bacon to give them more flavor.
Bacon was also a mystery ingredient.
I noted that when one of the competing chefs opened the package of vegan hot dogs, the package was intentionally placed label side down, so no one watching the show could see the…

According to the Chairman (person) of the American Iron Chef food network cooking show, an Iron Chef must respect the ingredients. How does one show respect for the animal they murder for their plate, or many times, via Japan, eat alive? They use the word respect often. Respect for regional tastes as an example. Respect...

Flavor, texture, color, aroma play a huge role in the products engineered to taste, look, feel and smell like something they’re not. For me it’s all about the essence. I don’t want a food that tastes so much like a real cow, pig or chicken that I can’t tell the difference. Nobody likes to be... Continue Reading →
If you live in an apartment as I do, then you can't have any open containers, boxes or bags of food. Everything I open goes into a jar with a tight-fitting lid. If I open a box of cereal, I don't roll down the clear waxed bag inside the box, thinking pests won't find it.... Continue Reading →
THE CANNIBALIZING FACTOR When you cannibalize an animal you signal to your body-brain impending death, causing your body-brain to go into a fat-producing and fat-conserving mode, slowing all your bodily functions as a means to preserve and extend your life span. This is not the same as a slowed metabolic rate, such as inducing sleep... Continue Reading →
Did you know that taste buds are located around the small structures known as papillae found on the upper surface of the tongue, soft palate, upper esophagus, the cheek and epiglottis. Betcha thought taste buds were only on the tongue. Me too. Wine tasters known for swishing the wine around the mouth are not only aerating it, they're experiencing the wine through all of...

ANIMAL-FREE VEGAN COMPANIES ARE STILL IN THEIR BIRTHING STAGE What this means is that for many companies to get up and running they need to use the factories that other companies use to manufacture their goods that do contain animal products. They basically rent out the facilities, thus the common labeling of possible and/or traces... Continue Reading →
