    Default Jim Long Pork Commentary: Gene edited pork, will anyone buy?

    07 September 2017
    Jim Long on ThePigSite


    According to the Pew Research Center nearly 40% of the Americans believe Genetically Modified foods are bad for their health. In Europe we expect the percentage is higher.

    The University of Guelph in Canada developed Genetically modified pigs in 1999. Enviropig was the trademark used to designate a genetically engineered line of Yorkshire pigs, that produces phytase in the salivary glands. The pigs are all dead now. There was no market. A herd of Enviropigs was maintained for 17 years. All cost, no return. Total disaster. In the end, if no customers, it doesn’t matter the technologies.
    There is salmon genetically modified and approved by the US FDA. It is a legal product. Some of the major retailers in the United States have said they will not sell GMO salmon. These retailers include Costco, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Safeway, and Kroger. When you’re in business, having a market for your product is probably the most important attribute.

    I am pleased to see it's "nearly 40%." Honestly, I would have guessed a much lower figure...somewhere around 25%.

    Wait, isn't kosher a term that is only meaningful to jewish people?

    http://www.jewishpress.com/news/jewi...on/2012/09/20/

    That implies it is meaningless to 99.8% of us word wide. It also has some very quirky rules and definitions such as "All utensils used in slaughtering, cleaning, preparing and packaging must be kosher." How do you qualify a utensil, a cleaner or packaging as kosher I wonder, and does it apply to cardboard and plastic? Inquiring minds...

    Note: I am neither pro nor anti jewish - to me they are just like any other nationality. Now their politicians, are just as bad as the American puppets. I hate politics at all levels they are the likely source of most evil. Pardon me if that upsets you.

    Ora, I think grulla was not being serious, but this may answer your question. It mainly seems to be about cleaning with extremely hot water. It all sound very tedious!

    Thank you Julieanne, my only point was that I wouldn't touch the GENETICALLY EDITED pork with a 10' pole.

    I would bet that a very high percentage of the regulars on this forum would not voluntarily consume ANY genetically modified food.

    The problem then becomes truth in labeling, how do you know what you're eating unless you grow it yourself? That applies to vegetables, fish, meats and all processed foods.

    Among the orthodox Jews I know who keep kosher, not a lot of attention is paid to utensils. Kosher has more to do with how the animal was slaughtered, and with the old biblical advisory against mixing meat and dairy ("Thou shalt not seethe a kid in the milk of its mother.")
