tik tok It is the platform where today we find out everything. Both of the useful, and of the useless; what we want to know, as well as what we don’t. That’s probably why it’s so famous and who are we kidding? Even if you say you don’t like it, you probably have a secret account or don’t post videosbecause it makes you sad that others see you and it’s fine, each one arrives in his own time. Everything looks like trendy dances and people letting off steam, but it’s not like that, there are also scientists who upload interesting videos.
Precisely in the field of content of sciencerecently a small video went viral, where a tiktoker showed what was found when analyzing the chorizo in a microscope. And is that the user @micro_terra He had previously analyzed food, street tacos, and what he has found has not always been what he expected. “After 4 months I already lost the disgust for the chorizo” assured the video creator.
In past videos, the user had the misfortune to find a fly on a piece of fresh sausagewhere he found a fly with little eggswhich have the appearance of grains of rice under the microscopeor, which traumatized everyone, from him to his followers, because it showed how unhealthy the food we buy on the street can be, when we don’t check it well before consuming it.
Does chorizo contain flies?
And it is that on this occasion, after 4 months, he not only found a fly even larger without the need for a microscope, this time by bringing the meat closer to the microscoperealized something even worse: It turns out that the sausage had a cockroach egg sac stuck to it. Something that left the video creator doubly surprised, who seemed to be disappointed in the chorizo, that if we put ourselves in his place, anyone would be.
Some of his followers took the fact with humor and in the comments added that if he ate that, it would do him good, since insects are a source of protein, while others advised him to change the place where he did his shopping, since twice and after all this time, it couldn’t be too much of a coincidence. And yes, the truth is that many assured that it was probable that the butcher shop where @micro_terra he bought his sausage, it was a site unhealthy.
But beyond the nausea caused by seeing such small organisms up close and in detail with the microscope, the comments that its users tell it seem to tell the truth about proteins and that is that, according to researchers interviewed by the EFE news agency, flies could be an alternative source of animal-type proteins and in countries like Serbian, Finland, Spain and South Africa investigations are being carried out to be able to formally incorporate them into the market. Of course, with respective health control.
