Spam is a portmanteau of the words “spiced” and “ham”) is a canned precooked meat product made by the “Hormel Foods Corporation” Austin in Minnesota US, first introduced in 1937 the July 5th – spam are chopped pork shoulder meat, with ham meat added – salt, water, modified potato starch as a binder – and sodium nitrite as a preservative.
The product has become part of many jokes and urban legends about mystery meat, which has made it part of pop culture and folklore – when young people start their cooking “career” in the kitchen on their owm, spam is a key ingredient for many many of them.
On average, just in the US, each second there’s open 4 cans spam (á 340 grams)
but spam is a worldwide product.
Through a Monty Python sketch, in which Spam is portrayed as ubiquitous and inescapable, its name has come to be given to electronic spam, including spam email.(

But this kind of spam there’s probably no one, who wants the recipe for
although it, without doubt, is far more widespread than the real spam.
