Meat Science: baby poo tastes best!

Hey, it can’t all be hard, er, news. ¬†We need to to push, er, boundaries.

Forget drinking urine or eating placenta pie, the human by-product researchers are now espousing the health benefits of is baby excrement.

In a sausage.

Already being referred to as “pooperoni” on the internet, the fermented sausages were made with bacteria cultured from faeces taken from the nappies of infants.

And according to a Curtin University pharmaceutical science lecturer, the sausages could soon end up on our dinner plates.

Spanish researchers isolated three probiotic strains from infants’ faeces and used them to manufacture their own twist on traditional Mediterranean sausages, similar to chorizo, called “fuets”.

Three commercial strains were also trailed, but it was one from the baby excrement that was the best tasting.

You there!  At the back!  Stop sniggering.  This is Science!

“The main aim is to gain a full understanding of what healthy diet means and find out how much it takes of the baby sausage, to get the benefits.”

The cultures were diluted to 10ml/kg and added to a meat batter of lean pork, stuffed into “natural pork casings”, hung to ripen for two weeks and then stored for more than two months.

The sausages were similar in many ways, including appearance, to pepperoni and other sausage meats and Dr Al-Salami said he hoped they would be retailed.

“Down the track we hope [they'll be available for purchase],” he said.

“That’s why all the work is being done.”

But he admits that it may not sound appealing.

Hmmmmmm, baby sausage.

    Keep in mind that cultavated from does not mean it includes.

    Yeast for example comes from all sorts of nasty places, but is found in every beer.

    • Pissedoffyouth

      Especially the Belgium beers which are brewed by random yeast floating around, not controlled at all

  • Justsayn

    You cannot take this seriously! Dr Al-Salami? really?

    • Sponge

      Curtin University?

      Studying meat?

      Meat Curtins? Is someone taking the piss?

    Fine,
    You test it and then report back.

  • Brian Smaller

    As I already said on Stuff, if you may as well just eat Sizzlers – they are already crap sausages.

    • Sponge

      Made of earholes, eyeholes and arseholes.

  • Goathurder

    Na, not put off at all, having been fed shit sandwiches by msm for ever!!!

  • Lion_ess

    Reminds me of a George Carlin quote on the crap American’s eat. “If you were selling sauteed raccoons arseholes on a stick, Americans would buy them and eat them”.

    A new business for someone, just gotta work out how to get baby poo on a stick.

    Just wait the Greens will have this on all school menus it will be called Tuatara sausage delight.

  • Ben

    This pro rich right wing government is sort of dishing that out to our less well off plebs already, anyway!

    • Blokeintakapuna

      Yeah – $513 Million or so just in Education alone!

  • sheppy

    Maybe they taste better than pre cooked sausages? Not that I’d eat either of them

  • Tony V

    OMG, I actually gagged reading this. How ridiculous. Can’t wait to watch the first taste test on You Tube..not

    WTF are humans trying out this crap?
    This is all a load of Shite.

    I say – ban this line of investigation forthwith.
    It is bloody offensive to find we are funding this type of arse who could come up with this stuff.
