Meat from the butcher's shop ...

I would like to share one experience, just because it was so surprising for me. I am buying my meat, whenever possible, at butchers that have their own animals, where I know that the animals are fed properly (grass fed beef for example). On Friday I was in the town where I was born and bought some "breakfast meat", which is nothing else than minced meat with added spices canned in a glass. It's quite some time that I avoid sugar (I am even more strict since I was in hospital in 2017) and then the big surprise: reading the label yesterday I found dehydrated high fructose corn syrup and two other weird ingredients on it. Before these were not there. I am wondering why these are in there now. Why would a butcher add this stuff when he grows his own animals in a proper way? Does he even know what he is doing? There is something going terribly wrong in our society. It's since I discovered it that I am wondering how to go about this. I am right now writing a letter that will be sent to butchers of my region asking them which meat products are still natural, and where I can find the ingredients list of their products. We need to look at this and ask for the why and if we can get proper food from them. If all of us and who follows us will do that, we will make an impact.
