How about vegetable hot dog? By JEFF CARRUTHEHS Ottawa Biiraiu OTTAWA It may not be too long before Canadians will be able to remember fondly about the good old days, when hot dogs and sausages were "all meat." Food experts in the federal health department here now are seriously considering breaking the "all-meat" barrier and al- lowing weiners and other saus- age products to be made with plant protein substances such as soy and wheat as well as or even instead of meat. Under proposals being dis- cussed with industry', sausages thai might be made with vege- table or other sources of protein In combination with meat pro- tein would only be rewired to meet minimum reqrarements for both the quality and the quantity of protein in the saus- age products. And products that arc not "all meat" would have to be la- belled as such, and would likely have to be given slightly differ- ent "coined" names, so that consumers would not confuse them with the all-meat prod- ucts. (Perhaps hot dogs made with wheat might be called CWhea- Dr. Doug Chapman, head of the food advisory bureau in the federal health protection branch, said in an interview that at present Canadian stand- ards for sausages call for meat only as the protein constituent and limit cereal content to four per cent. He noted that at least one company in Canada markets an all-vegetable protein product, but it technically cannot be called a sausage or weiner or such. Present regulations specific- ally do not allow sausage-type products made of a mixture of meat and non-meat proteins, Dr. Chapman said. And it is this type of combination prod- uct that would be allowed under nroposals now being considered by the health department, he explained. "As time goes on and meat protein becomes more and more expensive, it seems inevi- table that manufacturers will want to use cheaper vegetable proteins, for he said. "As long as the duality anil ouantity of the protein is there, I don't see. why we shouldn't pending on Hie ingredient use. Vegetable proteins tend to be less complete and less useful to humans than many meat pro- teins, he said. And under gov- ernment protein rating systems already in use, the vegetable protein u'ould have a lower pro- tein rating than most meat pro- teins, for example. Thus, while a manulacturer would be free to substitute a vegetable or other non-meat protein ingredient accepted by the government for meal, the manufacturer would probably have to add more vegetable protein than the meat ht is replacing to maintain the pro- tein quality level of his product. Dr. Chapman noted the quality of the protein used In a sausage product is really a bet- etr guide of a product to the consumer than just the quantity of protein in the product. The type of protein used In such products would have U> bt listed on the label.

The heart of the proposal would be the requirements to maintain minimum protein quality and quantity levels in the sausage products, no matter what type of protein is used. i Dr. Chapman explained that I the quality of protein varies, de- He objected because the chamber of commerce in Red Deer has taken the side of city council in stating the increase of 43.7 per cent granted by a three-member arbitration is too high. The firefighters' union says the increase is only 37 per cent. "In labor hearings through- out this province, the chamber of commerce has laid coexist- ently that arbitration binding on both sides is the way to labor said Mr. Mitchell. "Now Ihey have a binding award and they don't like it. "They can't havr. it both ways." POLICE TACT WELLINGTON, N.Z.
