comment Fruit salad with tomatoes
@bdsl You're welcome to disagree. How some people use the word "vegetable", does not define the word "fruit". How about helping the OP though?

comment Fruit salad with tomatoes
@bdsl By definition, fruit have seeds, that's what a fruit is "a container for seeds". So vegetables end up being everything else

comment Why does my canned enchilada sauce smell and taste like dog food?
@Tim Post melamine is a toxic chemical to humans. Safe levels are in the order of 1 mg/Kg, so not suitable in a can where implements might be used to scrape the can contents out. Cans are generally lined with various forms of epoxy (heat safe). They used to be lined with tin. If this membrane was faulty, the contents would quickly eat a hole through the can. Most canned goods are acidic

Does fat react to plastic? Wouldn't the plastic bottle then dissolve if this was happening?

comment Cooking issue with cheap plastic forks
Various studies have shown that the energy used to make and wash cups is more than their lifetimes worth energy to make polystyrene cups. May apply to plastic forks too?

Melamine? Aluminium. For a can of food. Seems strange? Are you familiar with the brands canning process, or did you mean epoxy and steel?

comment Does whole milk or soy milk spoil faster? Why?
While both milks are chemically similar, they are biologically totally different, it's an "apple to oranges" problem

@L0j1k OP has not disclosed location, so why inflict your situation on them. Surely you are aware of what the average eats?

@Catija Most people in the world eat about 120 g or less, red meat per day (averaged). What's up your way?
