Hotdogs made of cultured worms? Will you stop eating hotdogs if its true? Worms are used as a meat substitute for a long time. My mom told me that an uncle used to work as worm buyer for a local processed meat producer. The worm farm is actually located near our hometown and my uncle would always drop by and tried unsuccessfully to convinced my grandmother to use the worms in our restuarant. He said that the worms are clean as it is cultured and fed only with excess produce from the nearby organic farms. Lately, we did the catering for a research convention that gave us cultured worms to be used as a meat substitute for meatballs. So I guess its not just the hotdogs.

I have heard the same news back when I was in high school that hotdogs are made of worms. But it didn't stop me from eating hotdogs. I saw this documentary about farm people eating worms and the doctor said that there's this one kind of worm that is edible. It is clean and we don't have to worry about any diseases. The only problem that the doctor stated is that the worms are like shrimps some people may be allergic to worms.

I've done some research on the internet and found out that there are lots of worms that can be and is being eaten by a lot of people. Some says it taste like chicken. And since we've been assured by the team of researchers that once ordered and eat it in front of us I no longer mind it in my hotdogs. In fact, I would like to raise some of the edible varieties for personal use.

*Ewww* If it comes to the point that hotdogs become "wormdogs" then I'll probably stick to eating veggies. I really don't think I can stomach the thought of eating worms. The question is, will owners inform people that they're selling processed worms?
