Scientists Create Sausages Which Include Baby Poo

The researches, however, haven't used actual baby poo in the sausages, but only a tiny strain of the bacteria was taken and reproduced in the dish.

The co-author of Anna Jofré, who is a food microbiologist in Spain has told LiveScience that:
Probiotic fermented sausages will give an opportunity to consumers who don't take dairy products the possibility to include probiotic foods to their diet

She also told them that they have ate the sausages and the sausages taste very good.
