Apparently, Sausages in Indonesia Are Not From Beef

Sausage is certainly one of favorite foods in the world. It is produced in different countries under different names. As a result, people know different types of sausage, depending upon the ingredients, production process, taste, and casing. For instance, Italian people have Bologna sausage, French people have Lyon Sausage, and people of England know Berkshire, Lincolnshire, or Wiltshire sausage.

WHAT ABOUT SAUSAGE IN INDONESIA

The netizens in Indonesia were recently shocked of the videos, which detailed illegal practice of sausage production. The videos even make some people stop consuming sausage. Sausage, which is mostly made of high-quality beef, is made from low-quality beef or even flour, which is mixed with beef flavor.

For many people in Indonesia, beef is still an unaffordable food ingredient. One kilogram of beef may cost up to Rp. 140,000. Therefore, sausage is a cheaper alternative. They can buy a pack of sausage in a price of less than Rp. 30,000. However, the high demand for sausage encourages some individuals to do illicit business. They make sausage from inedible or even rotten ingredients.

However, such illicit practice cannot be generalized for all sausage products available in the store shelves in Indonesia. A lot of local sausage products are made of high-quality ingredients. Sausage made by illegal businesses is usually marketed at very low prices. Smart consumers are able to differentiate low-quality sausage from high quality one.
