Did you know?!

Did you know?! I think that is what I am going to call my random fact segment! haha
 
I found another cool fact this morning — TOTALLY did not know this!
 
Did you know that the red liquid in raw meat is NOT blood!
 
Almost all the blood is removed during the slaughter of the meat, so the red juice is mostly a mix of water and myoglobin.
 
What is myoglobin?! It stores oxygen in muscle cells and it has a reddish colour! Hence, the more myoglobin, the redder the meat!
 
Cool!
 
Now to make this blood talk funny, watch this video:
