Silly Putty

 
 

Remember that stuff you played with in 3rd grade science? Well a form of silicon used in Silly Putty is also the secret ingredient that keeps fryer oil from foaming.

Beetle Juices

 
 

Don’t say this name three times fast! Some red food dyes are made from the dried, crushed bodies of dead beetles. Fast food restaurants put this stuff in some meats, sausages, marinades, bakery products, toppings and juices, among many other things.

Human Hair

 
 

It’s that special ingredient on the list. Sometimes if cooks aren’t wearing hairnets, expect a unexpected hair to get covered up by cheese.
