Oh yeah!! I remember hearing about that. Isn't it gross? Apparently soy sauce is sometimes made with all kinds of questionable things. Not the major brands though. Please God--make sure that is true!

I saw Soylent Green again last month. The cheesiness is so much fun!

One of our favorite lines around the house:

"Mom, this tastes great! What's in it?"

"People. Want more?"

That is absolutely repulsive. Shudder. But thanks for letting us know.

ugh, I didn't need that.
Great blog, by the way.
Bitching after my own heart.

Rosie said...

Thanks, Dusio!

After I read that article to my hubby, he went in and checked the list of ingredients on our soy sauce bottle...

this disturbs me. i think my mother used pearl river bridge soy sauce when i was a kid. i might puke right now.

Cindy -

Unless your mom was buying bootleg soy sauce at street markets, I think you should be fine...

Cindy said...

well, my mom got it from Chinatown, so i'm probably fine :P but i was really paranoid, i went to the store today and i checked out the label of the pearl river bridge soy sauce. it claims to have soya beans in it. i'm sticking with yamasa (http://www.yamasausa.com/Yamasa_products_retail.htm) & kikkoman (http://www.kikkoman-usa.com/_pages/consumer/products/soysauce.asp?loc=101&subsection=products&subsection2=soysauce) for the rest of my life! and those suspect soy sauce packets they give you with chinese takeout? nasty! i throw them in the trash as soon as i get home.

I can believe that folks can't tell the difference between chemical soup and real soy sauce. Until you've bought something besides La Choy, like Kikkoman or another naturally feremented brand, how are you supposed to know what good soy sauce is supposed to taste like.

Cindy said...

oh don't get me started on La Choy. La Choy tastes like people!
