Inside Stories of Evil Imitation Meat Manufacturers
Imitation Meat Caused a Thirty-Year Vegetarian Diagnosed with Symptoms
of Mad Cow Disease
10th, 2004/ Special Report By Shi-Chai Chen in Taipei
Pin-Dong, a mother of a Buddhist believer was diagnosed with symptoms of
mad cow disease. No one in
the family believed the doctor because the mother has been vegetarian
for about 20 to 30 years. She
does not touch meat! Finally,
they discovered that the problem is on the vegetarian ham she has
said Dharma Master Chuan-Dao, who said he found too many inside stories
of how imitation meat is produced today.
It is too much to tell.
year, Dharma Master Dao-Chuan had reported the problems to D.M. Shi
Zhao-Hui in hope that what goes on behind the scenes are revealed.
It is not until today, the truth has finally been uncovered.
evil deeds going on in making the imitation meat are truly
reminded the problems of adding animal products in the imitation meat;
D.M. Dao-Chuan could not help but put in his two cents.
He pointed out that there are many variations of evil vegetarian
food. Take ‘Stinky
Tofu’ for an example (Stinky Tofu made in a traditional fermentation
process would take months). To
be speedy, the manufacturer would soak tofu in strong acid, and then dip
them in spoiled shrimp shells to let the worms move around the tofu for
a day. After that, the tofu
is taken out for sell.
imitation meat heavy in flavors comes from lamb or fish.
The manufacture is fully aware of what they are doing is wrong
but proceed with it anyway. They
believe the strong aroma and the trend of vegetarianism will bring them
potential customers. A Bikhsuni in Luo-Jia, Taiwan, also has other
proofs regarding what D.M. Dao-Chuan discovered.
Her son was working in an imitation meat factory and quitted not
long after the first day of work. When
being asked, the son revealed that he could not stand how the vegetarian
meat was made because the process was simply too evil.
The animal shaped vegetarian meat (such as imitation ham, fish,
shrimp and so on) from various restaurants in the country today all have
animal ingredients in them, especially vegetarian ham. A lot of the pork or beef canned food are imported from the
United States, Japan or Thailand. When
unloaded in Taiwan, the labels are torn and replaced with that of
‘Vegetarian Ham’. By
doing this, the price of the food flares up to $100 N.T. per Chinese
pound (300 grams). There
are also cases where the manufacturers would marinate the real ham with
beef or pork juice to make the aroma even stronger in order to sell

Of The Imitation Meat Contains Animal Ingredients Causing The
Vegetarians To Break Precepts!!!!
Watch Out!! Fifteen
out of the thirty-one imitation meat inspected by the non-government
Groups contains animal’s DNA; eating these products has caused the
unaware vegetarians to break their precepts.
The government officials emphasize that the vegetarians should
avoid buying bulk imitation meat that has none or unclear labels. When proved, the evil vegetarian meat manufacturers will be
fined up to 200,000 dollars and their permit could also be suspended.
superb collections of imitation meat are actually the phony vegetarian
food that contains animal’s
DNA. What is worst is that
four out of the inspected products contain either pork or chicken.
inspection results from the non-government group are even more shocking.
Out of the 21 samples of imitation meat, 70% of the products
failed the examination. This
news panicked and horrified the vegetarians.
Putting aside the ingredients in the imitation meat, just the
animal shapes and the looks of the products keep the vegetarians away.
As the vegetarian population increases in the country, people
need to be more careful in choosing vegetarian food.
FDA recommends not buying imitation meat in bulk or those with
none or unclear labels. If
manufacturers are involved in making phony imitation meat, they will be
fined up to 200,000 dollars along with revoking of their permits.
out of 21 imitation meat contains pork, chicken and fish.
Evil Behind the Imitation Meat!
Life Protecting and Caring Association recently submitted 21 samples of
imitation meat gathered from the traditional open market for inspection.
FDA astonishedly discovered that 15 out of the 21 samples
contain animal ingredients. The
failing ratio is as high as 70%.
Being so flabbergasted, the government proactively samples more
products from supermarkets and discovered that some of those samples
are also mixed with animal products.
FDA had requested these samples be kept for further investigation
and urged the consumers to buy vegetarian food with complete and clear
packaging with explicit ingredient labels.
the press conference, Jian-Ming Chen , Vice executive director of the
Association and the candidate of Kao-Shung county representative,
Jian-Mong Kuo pointed out that the imitation meat are so heavy in flavor
that they suspect that the manufacturers added animal aromas in them.
These unethical manufacturers are totally oblivious of the rights
of more than 2 million vegetarians in Taiwan.
A few days ago, 15 out of the 21 kinds of inspected imitation
meat (they are so tasty that the stores on the Hu-lin and Wu-xing Street
recommend them to vegetarians) all came out with traces of animal
ingredients after laboratory tests.
These products are vegetarian meatballs, imitation fish
balls, imitation fish cake, imitation fish dumplings and imitation
officials in Taiwan then proactively checked various supermarkets and
open markets on the south and east side of the city.
They took 48 more samples, some of which are in bulk and others
are packaged. They found
that most of the packages with clear ingredient labels and
manufacturer’s contact information pass the inspection.
However, those in bulk are different.
Four out of the 15 contains pork and chicken.
Jian-Mong Juo said that even those that are packaged are not
entirely safe, either. Even
the packages indicate the ingredients or the manufacturer information;
some of the packaging is not the real original ones.
From this sample inspection, it reveals the serious issues of
Evil Imitation Meat. The government was asked to investigate further on evil
manufacturers and litigate them with fraud and heavy fine.
