Flexitarian Sausages

Last year, New Zealand sausage maker Beehive debuted a line of sausages that it claimed were 'flexitarian'. This term describes a diet that is semi-vegetarian. So, a plant-based diet that only occasionally includes meat.

What made Beehive's sausages flexitarian? According to the company, it was because they were only 80% meat, and contained 20% plant-based filler.

By that standard, you might qualify as flexitarian if you only eat 4/5 of a sausage, instead of the whole thing.

If I remember my USDA guidelines a hot dog can contain 3.5% non-meat and 20% animal derived slurry ("pieces parts"). The percentages are a little different but this just sounds like slightly healthier sausage.

So now instead of being ashamed to add 20% cheap fillers to your meat, you can be proud of it?
