The tincture is called ‘molehill’, and the situation with the use of the drink caused a reaction from Russian food regulators.
The source of the discussion was the appearance of a video in which a man tastes a tincture on a dead mole and shares a recipe for making it.
According to him, the mole is placed in a jar upside down so that the feces do not pollute the drink. Then the carcass of the mole is poured with pure alcohol and kept in a cool room from 6 months to 1 year.
After this period, the dead mole tincture can be consumed in small quantities, since the drink contains some formaldehyde.
Mole, according to the taster, is used as a medicine.
The video was published over a year ago, but only now has caused a heated discussion on social networks.
Rospotrebnadzor has already expressed concerns about the use of molehills:
Moles are very often infected with worms (…). The muscles of moles contain roundworms (…). The alcohol medium does not destroy the pathogens of zooanthroponic and helminthic diseases.
