German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck once said that laws are like sausages: you will appreciate them more if you don't see them being made. Sausages in Europe, much like in America, use the stomach, stomach linings, intestines, and other organs, as well as certain spices, occasionally garlic and sugar. However, meat hygiene and quality assurance standards are higher in Germany than in some other parts of Europe, the United States, and other top meat exporting countries. I think this is because Germans tend to be far more skeptical about food safety than other countries.
They are usually made of a blend of meats, usually chicken, beef, pork, or turkey and then meat fat, oatmeal, bread crumbs, various seasonings, and other ingredients. They are then mushed together and put into hot dog molds. Store bought hot dogs are put into cellulose casings, but homemade are usually made of intestines...
Since hot dogs are made from a slury of finely ground meat they generally use meat by-products that otherwise could not be sold like butcher trimmings, organs, and parts of animals we don't like to think about.
Thnks i just wanted to know cause my dad said there are some foods i do not want to know the ingredients of and used hotdogs as an example. lol
