Food Lit: PIG 05049

Have you ever seen Food Inc?

No? Why are you still reading this? Get your act together and watch it as soon as possible.

One of the most memorable scenes of the documentary for me was the overwhelming amount of uses for corn. From your dinner to your batteries–some sort of corn product is in there.

But Christien Meindertsma had a cooler idea. She researched all of the products that are made from a single pig. Just like the corn, some products are fairly true to what we would consider a pork product, but others surprise. From marshmallow to paint, pig takes part in the production. Exhibited in Rotterdam in 2008, you can explore her research and what started it all in “PIG 05049”, available through amazon.

Looks like an intriguing read, your friend who seems to know everything about food would be instantly silenced. For more info please visit Christien Meindertsma’s website.
