Let's get real

First, there was yogurt with "real fruit", then almond-flavoured soya milk with "real almonds", then dog food with "real meat".

I could have gone round the supermarket snapping pictures of "real" food.

I've had mock meat before, made from soy gluten for vegetarians, but if fruit and almonds weren't real, then what's the alternative? Pretend fruit and bluff nuts? Or worse, meat masquerading as fruit since soy can be disguised as meat?

So what are you having for dinner today? Real food?

I think they mean "real meat" as in muscle meat, as opposed to "false meat" which is meat by-products, the slurry that is retrieved by high-pressure sprays from carcases, the snout bits, the trotter bits, etc. etc.
