Foodies have been upset after a video of making hot dog sausages resurfaced online.
the youtube videowhich originally appeared on the Discovery UK channel in 2019 but recently resurfaced on social media, showed that hot dog sausages are made from a mixture of pork, beef and chicken.
But the meat isn’t freshly prepared for the hot dogs, and is instead made up of leftover trimmings from other cuts, like steak and pork chops.
While some enthusiasts say the video has made them “crave more hot dogs,” others have lost their appetite after watching the grisly process.
The sandwich, which likely originated in Germany, first goes through a grinding process, which pushes the meat through a metal plate that has holes punched into it.
The popular sandwich is made from the trimmings of three different meats, chicken, pork and beef.
After that, chicken trimmings are added to the ground meat, before it is mixed with starch, salt, and other seasonings.
Water is then sprayed into the mixture and everything is mixed in a large vat.
The makers will then add a bit of corn syrup for a hint of sweetness.
More water is incorporated to make the hot dogs juicier, as well as helping to mix all the ingredients.
Another machine then grinds the meat mass into a fine emulsion and sucks the air out of the mixture.
To mold the processed meat into the classic hot dog shape, cellulose tubes are loaded into the stuffing machine, which pumps the meat puree into a long casing, usually the length of a hot dog is 13 cm.
In a shocking revelation, the narrator told viewers that it takes just 35 seconds to create a chain of sausages that would span twice the size of a football field.
The meat first goes through a shredding process, which pushes the product through a metal plate with holes punched in it.
The snack, which likely originated in Germany, also includes corn syrup for a hint of sweetness.
Water is added to the hot dog mix to give it more juiciness while the meat is mixed in a large metal vat.
The sausages are loaded onto moving racks, which deflect them through a shower of liquid smoke, before passing into an oven with multiple cooking zones.
Liquid fumes add classic hot dog flavor and travel from the shell into the meat as they bake.
Once the cooking process is complete, the dogs are submerged in salt water to cool them down and prepare them for packaging.
The sausages then travel through the factory to a drop zone, where they are placed on a conveyor belt.
At this stage, the sausages have a black mark on their casing, but once this is removed, factory workers can be sure the sausage is ready for packaging.
Hot dogs have a black mark on their casing, which is removed once the manufacturing process is complete and they are ready for packaging.
The casing is removed from the sausages once the process is complete, the machine in the video peeled the casing off at 700 sausages per minute.
A knife cuts each wrapper in a machine to separate the long tube of hot dogs from one another.
Then the steamy air blows the deck of the docks. The machine in the video peeled off the casing of a staggering 700 hot dogs in one minute.
An inspector will check if the hot dogs have been prepared correctly and are free of defects.
Hot dogs are ready to eat, so they travel for packaging.
The video factory can do this at incredible speed, making 300,000 hot dogs an hour, which is nearly two and a half million per shift.
People in the comments section were quick to share their views, while some users were bummed out for life, others didn’t care about the process.
Many viewers took to the comments section to share their thoughts on the process. One said, ‘I don’t think I’ll ever eat hot dogs again.’
A second person took a similar line of thought, saying, “I’m glad I don’t usually eat hot dogs.”
Other people enjoyed the video and agreed to come back for more hot dogs.
One said, ‘This is disgusting, I’ll never eat hot dogs again’; before kidding, they’d forget about it in four days and crave the snacks again.
Another user said: “This is why I want to be vegan, but they taste so good.”
A third agreed, saying: ‘To be honest, this video makes me crave more hot dogs. I don’t find it disgusting or anything.
