Grilled sausage shock
Öko-Test Grillwurst: Only two slices “very good”.

Summer, garden, barbecue: this is the perfect triad, even when the thermometer rises above 30 degrees. If you don’t have a garden, no problem. Then there will be a nice picnic by the lake. Perfectly. And what goes on the grid? Meat, fish, fruits and vegetables. Sausage products are especially popular. But with this news, the sausage gets stuck in the throat: Öko-Test tested 19 fried sausages: only two sliced ”very well”. We know the details and so do you.
Öko-Test: fried sausages on test
Öko-Test tested a total of 19 cooked pork sausages. Including seven Thuringian sausages on the grill. They come from both well-known sausage producers and organic markets. However, own brands from discounters and supermarkets were also selected. In focus: ingredients, taste and animal welfare.
Some ingredients are really bad – petroleum hydrocarbons
Do not read further if you have a weak stomach. Of the 19 grilled sausages tested, 12 products contain mineral oil carbohydrates, also known as (MOSH/MOSH analogues). We at BILD DER FRAU never tire of pointing out these dangerous ingredients. For example, in this message: Spaetzle in the environmental test: animal suffering and oil pollution.
Even in an organic product Packlhof organic butcher shop value has increased significantly. One of the reasons may be lubricants on sausage production machines. But there are other possible sources, such as contaminated sausage casings or spices. We just wonder. The problems have been known for decades. However, such unpleasant cases always happen.
The next unwanted ingredient is phosphates
We do not want to fry hydrocarbons mineral oils, and also no phosphates. Of the 19 fried sausages, only one product did not contain these artificial stabilizers: “Fratmaxe 5 pieces from Meica”. What are stabilizers in sausage for? Simply put, sausage meat stuffed into a sausage becomes smoother. It is like a yeast dough, it should also be smooth. And that’s why phosphates in food are dangerous. Now you can understand why the experts at Öko-Test were not thrilled.
What about microbial load?
Finally (almost) good news. Only Penny Rust Bratwurst the testers showed a red card and gave an overall rating of “sufficient”. The number of microbes detected does not make us sick, but they are still prohibited. And definitely not an argument for consumption. Rather, they indicate that cleanliness may not be taken very seriously. perfectly
Because of animal welfare! The worst animal suffering
Oh, how cute pigs, cows and chickens always look on food packages: they stand on green lawns in book landscapes and smile trustingly at us. it’s a fake it’s a mistake It has nothing, absolutely nothing to do with reality.
In 2021, about 50 million pigs were slaughtered for our consumption. According to official meat inspections, in 2021, 114,500 animals were unfit for consumption. As Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) reports, this was about 0.2% of the fattening pigs slaughtered and examined. The main cause was multiple abscesses (accumulation of pus in tissues). So, because of animal welfare. That is why the German Bund für Umwelt und Naturschutz recently called for a drastic reduction in meat consumption. For greater transparency, there are different labels for animal meat. And now also for milk and cheese. . The classic, however, remains the organic seal. We briefly introduce the 5 most important organic seals.
