Pizza Hut's Silicone Mozzarella

Turns out that the question in the photo to your left should read: Who doesn't love a little silicone-based chemical cheese? That's not 100% real mozzarella you're eating. . .

A report from "The Milkweed","Your best source for dairy news and analysis", states:

Last month, The Milkweed detailed how Pizza Hut restaurants illegally claim to use “Mozzarella” cheese on certain menu items, when in fact, Pizza Hut’s salt, starch and water-laden “Pizza Cheese” does not conform to FDA standards of identity for Mozzarella.

In this issue, writer John Bunting details how Pizza Hut’s cheese supplier—Leprino Foods—uses a silicone-based industrial chemical in the patented manufacturing of “Pizza Cheese.” That chemical—Polymethylsiloxane—has no FDA approval for use as a food ingredient.

If you have the stomach for it, get the complete lowdown on this Dow/Corning pizza toping here. Oh, and. . .sorry if you had Pizza Hut for lunch today.
