This “Food” is TWO YEARS OLD

Willow Rheault Kreibich posted this picture on FB recently.

The picture is taken from the FB wall photos of the LiveWell Wellness Centers–so you can go and have a look for yourself.

This food was purchased on April 22, 2010, so it is now TWO YEARS OLD.

Do you really want to feed this “food” to yourself or to your children????

Can we in any way call this food that even bugs won’t touch “nourishing”?

I copied and pasted below the picture what the folks at LiveWell wrote beneath their wall photo

Our fast “food” display is now 2 years old.  The word food is questionable, since the bread-like and meat-like substances have not molded or spoiled in any way.  Bugs won’t even bother with it.  Please think twice about giving this to your kids.  You have a choice, but they don’t.  We truly are what we eat.

  1. A totally misleading “experiment” purely for propaganda purposes. Simple scientific fact is that food doesn’t go moldy if dries out first. Read this:

    • Burgerman. Hmmmm. A big old hamburger with everything on it numbers among my most favorite foods. As long as the meat is grass-fed beef. I can assure you, however, that bread most certainly molds. Real bread, that is. In my kitchen, bread molds in a matter of days. And has for the 40 years I’ve been cooking. Real meat and potatoes mold too. I often put leftovers aside for the chickens and dogs. They start smelling in a matter of hours, and by morning, they’re well into a process of decay. Some argue that these new bacteria, esp. on meat, have some health potential for humans. My dogs and chickens don’t’ seem to mind. I do, though.

      • A loaf or joint of meat will go off because they retain enough moisture for long enough for the mold to grow. So would have the burgers if they had been kept in a humid environment or a jar or plastic bag. If you had sliced your meat and bread thinly and dehydrated it as quickly it would last just the same. That’s why we dry out beef jerky, prosciutto, raisins, prunes and sun dried tomatoes. But with no ‘control’ to compare against these “everlasting burgers” exhibits are just bad science used to create a shock story.
