I hear from someone Matthews,”is tantalisingly close to producing the ten-pence turkey, now there's a thought.“

Just what you'd expect from this company...

Will teach me to check HUKD before I shop again

Probably tastes awful! Fresh is the way to go
Won’t these be bruised and have broken bones?

What's the water content of this? Not all Turkeys, depends where you shop. Just think people should buy better quality than this, especially at Xmas.

That's horrendous... they're selling a joint of meat of which 12% is not meat, one eighth of the product is fake...

How on earth are companies allowed to get away with this? It should be "meat based product" with that amount of "non-turkey" in it.... CMOT Dibbler wouldn't sell this junk!!

The turkey is “ready basted” so the extra ingredients are for the baste/brine. If the turkey was somehow adulterated so to speak, it would have to be declared as such e.g “Frozen turkey crown with added water” and not just “Turkey”.

Plus meat is mostly water already, I’m sure you’ve heard we’re about 70% water.

12% water isn't basted...

I've basted with butter, or maybe olive oil, but never water....

Confirmed as available in store as I've just bought a 2.9KG one!

They are still marked up as £15 but will scan at £10....the staff know all about the deal!

Water, sugar and salt makes up a basic brine and brining turkey is a thing. Brining keeps it moist like basting with oil and stuff does. Aside from cost, there’s probably a practical reason they don’t use oils such as olive or butter in frozen turkeys, shelf life perhaps? Thinking about it, I’ve never seen a frozen ready basted turkey with some form of oil.

I don’t think it’s an unreasonable amount? 2-3kg is product means 12% is about 240-360ml of brine, they’ve probably been submerged in gallons of brine beforehand. 88% turkey but not all of that is edible anyway thanks to bones and stuff. It’s not as if they’re simply chucking water in to put the weight up whilst twirling their moustaches and laughing maniacally.

People buy these for a reason and not simply because they’re cheap. If they’re horrible tasting watery messes, no one would buy them.

Sainsbury's and Morrisons.... Half or less baste, nevermind the water...
