Diners Catch Chefs Serving ‘Mock Filets’ Held Together By Meat Glue – Here’s How To Spot It


By now, pretty much everyone knows that the food we put into our bodies has a huge influence on our overall wellbeing and health. But what if we think we’re making the right choices only to realize we’ve been lied to by the food and restaurant industry?
For instance, did you know that some restaurants actually serve mock filets that only look like the real thing but they are actually held together by something that specialists know as meat glue?

What this means is that you may actually be paying big bucks for low quality meat – and not even realizing it. So how do you spot these reconstructed, mock filets? Well, according to professional chefs, mock filets tend to look “too perfect,” meaning the fatty parts of the meat seem to be designed as to follow a certain pattern.
