TikTokers vow to never eat sliced ham again after shocking clip shows how products are actually made
The daily food begins its journey as a pink paste, before being flattened and heated to achieve the final result.
The video begins with a large pot of miscellaneous pink paste, which a factory worker scrapes into a yellow tub.
The contents are then dispensed into individual loaf-shaped molds by a masked man wearing a safety apron, bright white boots and a nozzle machine.
The molds are then tossed on a counter to air the mixture and flatten them before being placed in an oven.
After some time, the mixture, which has taken on a golden brown color and looks even more like a loaf of bread, is checked for temperature and removed.
The contents are then stacked on a slicer, which reveals the product’s pale pink interior.
To accompany the clip, Tantie wrote, “What the hell watch till the end, this can’t be real,” alongside three amazed-looking emojis.
The video has been viewed 8.6 million times by curious TikTokers who couldn’t stop watching the horror.
Over 40,000 users flooded the comments section, with many admitting they had no idea what this blend was at first.
One asked, “What’s in Ghost Busters Pink Slime Surprise?”
Others wondered what was added to the mix at the factory. One user wrote, “What kind of chemicals do they use to dress like this! »
Sliced ham looks like a loaf of bread before being cut. After being placed in separate molds, the mixture is heated until golden brown.

This is not the first time people have been shocked by the contents of a daily necessities. Earlier this year, Australians found out what vegemite is made of.
An episode of ABC’s Greatest Australian Stuff revealed that the polarizing condiment is made from “brewery waste”, a by-product of beer.
In the episode, a brown liquid is poured into a factory vat, while the narrator adds, “It’s the brown sludge at the bottom of your VB factory. »
After a snippet of the episode was shared on Facebook, hundreds of Vegamite-loving Australians couldn’t believe they didn’t know about the process.
“Now I know why I love it so much,” one commented, another said, “YUM! Especially now I know I eat beer.
