Animal meal
« on: January 31, 2012, 02:00:29 am »
Ever considered eating:
Fish meal
krill meal
crab meal
lobster meal
meal worm meal
or for that matter any other 'meal'? I have although I must say I have reservations based on sneaking suspicions that the content of the meal is possibly full of toxins. Nevertheless I would be willing to give it a go on the following grounds:
(1) survival food. The 'meal' can be powdered and stored for 2+years.
(2) It is an 'on-the-go' type food that can be mixed with anything or consumed by itself(just ad water!).
(3) It is cost effective and can be ordered in bulk quantities(at approx. $1/lb).

The variety of 'meals', which I take to be used as livestock feed(or domesticated animal feed) is sufficiently varied that it could constitute a staple in one's diet and furnish one with a broad range of nutrients. So my question is: is it a healthful option? Why or why not?
In a way it could be considered an envronmentally friendly option as the constituents of the 'meals' are the cast-offs of the products others consume(the 'fancy' foods).Let me know your thoughts.

I'd want to be really sure of what those animals ate. I'd also want to know about preservatives in the 'meal'.
