I believe that you will find that quite a lot of people actually do eat horse meat and arguments will be made over the nutritional values of horse
meat over beef.
See this link for more additional info : science.kqed.org...
However it is also known that many cultures will not eat horse meat for personal ethical reasons, which is quite understandable and should be
Funny thing for me is that i originate from the UK and now live in a country where eating horse meat is a norm and does not shock the majority of the
people here, it took me about 10 years before i decided to take a step forward and at least try horse meat and to be quite honest i didn't see or
taste much difference!
For personal ethical reasons i myself will not purchase horse meat for the simple reason that i grew up with horses and there is just... well, you
know, something about horses that says that they shouldn't be used as food... I prefer beef, venison or game meats (which is much healthier for you
so they say... venison and game meats that is!)
Anyway... products should still be correctly labeled.
