Ever since Taco Bell released a statement in 2011 to say its beef is 88 percent beef, not 36 percent, as a lawsuit accused, the public has been left wondering: What’s in the other 12 percent?
Wonder no longer, kind of. Taco Bell has posted a somewhat-vague explanation of the other 12 percent on its website, detailing the “completely safe and approved by the FDA” ingredients that are “also found in food items at your grocery store.”
The ingredient explainer says the company recognizes some of the ingredients have “weird names” that are “perfect for tongue twisters,” but says the extra ingredients are there for taste.
