Mechanically Separated Meat

Anyone have an opinion one way or another on Armour Potted Meat (Mechanically Separated Meat)? I am trying to live off of a relatively small budget and I found this stuff.

Basic Ingredients are:

Mechanically Separated Chicken
Mechanically Separated Beef
Water
Salt

Each serving gives approx: 11 Grams Protein/11 Grams Fat/1 Gram Carb

I am planning on using this stuff to cut down, and at 30 cents a can it seems like a bargain to me.

Anywho, I know mechanically separated meat is the crap ground off the bone after any high quality stuff has all ready been used, so no need to point that out necessarily.

Yeah, there’s a reason it’s cheaper than dog food…

Besides being gross, it’s probably laden with tons of salt and generally not good for you. Look at the sodium content, I bet it’s high.
