I had no idea there is sludge in poultry,
This review is from: Marinade Express Home Tabletop Unit, White (Kitchen)
I've never written a review before, but after trying my new Marinade Express unit I am compelled to do so! I put a full turkey breast in the machine, with the unflavored marinade. Carefully, I followed the instructions and put the bird on `spin' for 20 minutes. The process was simple, really. After spinning, I loosened the lid and the vacuum was released (an amazing vacuum noise!). I could not believe the yucky sludge that was removed from the turkey, floating on the surface of the water. I always buy the organic poultry, so I was amazed that there was so much ick floating in the water! I rinsed the bird off and baked it like I normally do. It turned out to be incredibly tender. Two days later I tried the same thing with some boneless organic chicken breasts ... same story. The crud that was removed from the chicken was toxic looking and really smelly. I can't believe we had been eating that stuff. Never again. The 20 minutes it took to spin the poultry was definitely time well spent and I can't wait to try some other food in my machine very soon.

That icky stuff is mostly myoglobin, a protein and flavor laden fluid that is in all muscles including yours. It is natural and lifegiving for the animal, and it makes meat juicy. It is sheer goodness. Professional Chefs do everything they can to NOT remove it.
