Baby Poop Sausage Is A Thing Now


Sausage is good, and according to science, it’s good for you when it’s made with a little baby poop.

These are a type of thin salchichón sausage called fuet from Catalonia, Spain that usually gets its flavor from the bacteria in the meat. Apparently, the bacteria in baby poop yields the same flavor with the added benefit of the probiotics Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium.

According to scientists at the Catalonia’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Research—who took the bacterium from 43 fecal samples of kids up to six months old—”infant feces are natural samples, easy to obtain.”

How do they taste? Researcher Anna Jofré tried them and said “they tasted very good” but I’m not sure that’d convince many people to start sending their kid’s diapers off to their local butcher shop.
