List of the healthiest sausages in Romania. In some products, red dye obtained from insects is used
The Pro Consumers Association (APC) analyzed 43 types of sausages, the goods being purchased from major commercial networks, in a study on the content of these products and the potential effects on consumer health.
The study was conducted by a team of APC experts, coordinated by Costel Stanciu, an academic.
What are sausages made of? According to the research, the meat used was found in different proportions, as follows:
chicken breast between 23% and 80%, chicken meat between 13% and 88%, pork between 17% and 93%, beef between 8% and 79%, turkey meat between 4% and 96%, turkey breast 53%, mechanically separated meat & icircntre 50% to 79%. In 7% of the analyzed products, the amount of meat in the recipe used to make the sausages is not mentioned in the list of ingredients.
What is worrying is that 26% of the products analyzed used mechanically separated meat (mechanically separated poultry, mechanically separated chicken and turkey, mechanically separated chicken and mechanically separated turkey). & Icircn the jargon of specialists is even called & bdquom & acirczgă & ldquo or & bdquonoroi & ldquo: & bdquonoroi alb & ndash white slim, engl. & Ldquo (because it is about poultry meat). The process involves grinding the carcass and passing the paste (which includes bone grinding, bone marrow and other edible tissues) under pressure.

At the same time, sausages obtained from mechanically separated meat (remnants of muscle tissue, cartilage, blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue) with the addition of sugars, wheat flour, oatmeal, soybean fiber, pea fiber should be avoided. , animal protein, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, hydrolyzed yeast protein, gelatin and starch, which actually mask the low quality of the products. Also, check the shelf life and storage conditions in the retail space. Due to the high salt content and some food additives with carcinogenic risk, sausages should not be part of the diet of children and adults with cardiovascular diseases & rdquo, advises Costel Stanciu, president of APC Rom & acircnia.

Sausage mini rolls - Recipes
Mini rolls with chicken salad
These Chinese-style appetizers do not contain any fat. The chicken is boiled in vegetable soup, cut into strips and given through vinegar and soy sauce and vegetables, then rolled in salad leaves.
- 225 ml lightly salted chicken soup 2 slices of ginger 5 mm thick each 450 g skinless and boneless chicken leg or breast 3 tablespoons rice vinegar 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce 1 grated carrot 1 pepper red cut julienne 16 fresh lettuce leaves 16 green mint leaves 3 tablespoons chopped peanuts fried
To prepare the sauce, mix the soy sauce, vinegar and sugar in a saucepan. Boil over low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Set aside to cool.
Bring the ginger soup to a boil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken. Reduce the flame to a minimum, cover with a lid and cook for about 12 minutes or until the meat becomes opaque, turning it once in half. Remove the meat from the bowl (throw the juice). After it has cooled enough, cut into strips.
In a medium bowl, mix the vinegar with the soy sauce. Add the meat strips, carrot and red pepper. Mix well.
Place the lettuce leaves on the table. Put a mint leaf over each lettuce leaf. Divide the composition evenly on the salad leaves, then add the chopped peanuts. Roll and serve with sauce.
Roll out the dough into a rectangular sheet and cut into three strips. Then cut each strip into four squares. Transfer to baking tray lined with parchment paper.
Cut the sausages into slices and combine with the tomato sauce. Portion on each square at the base and then grease the uncovered half with the tomato paste. Grease the edges with beaten egg and fold by inserting a stick. Press to stick well. Grease with beaten egg and put in the freezer.
Preheat the oven to 6/200 degrees C. Bake for 15 minutes until evenly browned. Serve with soaking sauce to taste.
How do sausages wrap in dough?
The leavened dough is spread on a floured surface, so that it has a thickness of about 3-4 mm. Wipe the sausages well so that they are not wet (they are put raw, but taken out of the fridge they condense and are wet & # 8211 if they are wet, the dough does not stick to them or they slip or remain raw). Using a pizza cutter, cut strips about 1.5 cm wide. In total we should have 12 strips. You can cut it in half first, then each half and so on, getting 12 strips.
Take each strip separately and wrap the sausages one by one. The dough strip is stretched a bit and so it sticks well to the sausages. Rolled layers should be slightly overlapping.
We proceed in the same way with all the sausages. We roll each pretzel a little on the table, but without pressing, the overlapping strips must be clearly visible. Then we place them on a tray with baking paper and leave them to rise for another 20 minutes, covered with a clean kitchen towel.
Then grease each pretzel with the beaten egg yolk with a pinch of salt and 1 tablespoon of milk and sprinkle seeds on top to taste: sesame, poppy, cumin or leave them simple. Preheat the oven to 180 C (medium to high with gas).
