Study: Dog Food Tastes Just Like Pâté

High-End Dog Food, Suitably Blended, Isn't Much Different From Pork Liver Pâté, Working Paper Suggests
http://www.wine-economics.org/workingpapers/AAWE_WP36.pdf



(CBS) If the recession gets worse, we may be eating dog food for dinner.

Don't laugh. It's apparently tastier than you'd expect.

In the last few years, organic dog food made with human-grade free range meat and fresh vegetables has spiked in popularity among health-conscious shoppers. Some companies even claim, for instance, that "humans actually taste our foods, as part of our QC process!"

What's surprising is that some of the new organic dog foods taste as good as (or as bad as) similar human foods, like liverwurst and duck liver mousse, according to a working paper circulated on Friday by the American Association of Wine Economists.

The paper is titled "Can People Distinguish Pâté from Dog Food?" and it concluded that, well, they can't.

These enterprising researchers separately put organic Canned Turkey & Chicken Formula for Puppies/Active Dogs, duck liver mousse, pork liver pâté, liverwurst, and spam in a food processor. The resulting confection was ladled into five different bowls and garnished with parsley. .........................................

Saffron is way to expensive to waste on dog food.
Frank,

You should have posted this under "Backpacking Food". I bet Dale carries this as another one of his snacks he will not share.

Ahem. This is from the APRIL issue of Wine Economist.

Gotcha. Head roll
I think this is a legit paper.

If it's not... I am going to have to rethink dinner on Friday in the backcountry.

yes, whatever a Wine Economist is. the paper doesn't suggest that anyone like dog food, just that they couldn't tell the difference usually from various other pureed meat products.

Ok... I guess it only appropriate that I mention the Caveman Diet now.

Are nuts, grapefruit, and chickens typical pre-historic fare? You could have a bucket of Kentucky Colonel Extra Crispy and fulfill this diet! Sounds great.

Hot diggity dog! Now we are talking!
My feeling is that any diet that says: "eat as much as you want of <xyz>" is nuts!

My dietary advice is: QUIT EATING SO MUCH FOOD BOZO!

Enjoy a Cupcake or two ... not 20!
