Re: gram control

From:Ross Stapf

The trade name is Slim Jim.  It isn't quite beef jerky, but is similar.  It is somewhere between beef jerky and a hot dog.  I think that some folks who tried it recently didn't see any Gram negative.  They only saw Gram positive so I don't think they used it.  They now make many flavors so it may be that they changed the formula a bit.  Mine was processed about 8 years ago and it has both.  The Gram negative have to be looked for, but they are there.  Mine was the original flavor I think.  They can be found at most any convenience store, 7-11. 

All I can say is try it and see how it works for you.

Recently someone in the States recommended using some kind of processed
'meat product', beef jerky?? As one of my colleagues is visiting in a few
days could someone please refresh my memory? A trade name would be helpful
.Thanks in anticipation. Dave Rushworth.
