    Its crap mate, mince meat of any kind isnt worth using mate unless your having a cheat meal, so much crap in it. I wouldnt be suprised if bits of bone, beak, joint etc were all minced up into it. Stick to lean meats mate.

    No, he's just making uninformed comments. 'mince meat of any kind isn't worth using' is pure nonsense.

    Go to a butcher and ask them to mince a cut for you or just ask what cuts of meat they use for their mince. A real butcher does their own preperation and wouldn't even have the 'nasty' bits on the premises.

    Cheap supermarket mince you are likely to be getting plenty of gristle and crap in there but then nearly all supermarket meat should be avoided like the plague since the quality is so poor.

    <----- Hey, what do i know about bodybuilding?

    Just offering my advice to you, go for quality lean meat, preferably turkey steak, chicken breast or beef steak...Mince tends to be higher in fat and you cant seperate the fat from the cut.

    BritBB has a point. Why do you think turkey mince is much cheaper than breast meat? if it was the same quality meat minced up, then the price would be higher.

    if you want really good mince and you wnat to know exactly what you're getting, you need to throw your turkey breast or steak meat in the blender. you can season it how you like it that way too.

    Butchers stuff isn't bad but again unless it's a butchers you regularly go to then they can shove any old mystery meat in there for you.

    Stay away from Netto / Lidl / Aldi / Morrisons Betterbuy / Tesco Value frozen minced meats at they are truly 'mystery meat'

    I have never bought meat from a butchers and was just going on the lines of picking out your breast meats and asking him to mince them for me.

    pointing to your picture (if its you) proves nothing about your knowledge of BB.... even some of the biggest guys are clueless


    I see no reason to avoid mince as long as it fits into your diet

    I do: I chop lean cut of red meat than finish it in a processor...


    Or as posted above, ask your butcher to mince a chosen cut for you...

    i dont think there's anything wrong with mechanically reclaimed meat but for bbing it would be best to get a decent peice of meat and mince it yourself or get a butcher to do it.

    dont know a butcher price you have to go and ask



    if you buy from a super market , buy the fresh stuff and check the fat content (also aim for steak mince imo)

    I don't know what you know about bodybuilding but you're knowledge of food production and butchery doesn't appear too hot.

    Your comment was a sweeping generalisation that all mince regardless of where it's come from is inherently bad, it isn't.


    Go to a good butcher, ask them about their mince, look at the cuts of meat they are using - simple as that. As always, if you want good meat don't go to a supermarket.

    yes, i do this all the time.

    throw your meat into the blender, mix through seasoning. mix through an egg (or just the white) to help bind it together. throwing in some breadcrumbs (or oats) is good too if you want the carbs.

    is this with mince or do you just cut your meat up and blend it?

    mince meat of any kind isnt worth using mate unless your having a cheat meal


    Ready made mince whether its turkey, beef, or anything else is as i said good for a cheat meal.

    I never said it has no place in the diet at all. But it would be folly to start dieting for contest or to lean for personal reasons using reconstituted meat in the form of mince.

    As malika said she has her chosen cut minced or does it herself.

    If you buy mince from the butcher or from morrisons or tesco etc then how can you be sure that its 100% lean cut beef (or turkey in this case)??

    You cant.

    Thats why i said avoid. If you want to mince your own meat up then by all means do so, infact it will taste nicer when minced up and with seasoning added to it so its probably a good idea as it adds variation and your getting herbs aswell.

    Ready made minced meat be it from a butcher or supermarket will probably have other additives in it that you dont want...fine for a cheat meal or whilst bulking but no way for dieting...unless its a cut which youve asked the butcher to mince up, or youve done it yourself.

    Sorry, maybe i didnt make myself clear enough, i meant 'ready made mince' of any type of meat, ie turkey, beef etc...didnt mean 'anything minced is useless'...obviously its not useless if you minced up the finest fillet steak then it will have exactly the same nutrients as the fillet steak non minced.

    If you buy ready made mince then whether its turkey or beef etc then itll probably have things added that you dont want in it.
