Moo Glue is a type of food based glue known as transglutaminase which is used in food is manufactured either from the blood clotting factors of animals like cows and pigs or bacteria derived from plant extracts

The Moo Glue is typically sold in powder form.

The bonding quality of transglutaminase makes it a useful ingredient for food manufacturers.

Transglutaminases are enzymes that in nature primarily catalyze the formation of an isopeptide bond between γ-carboxamide groups ( -(C=O)NH2 ) of glutamine residue side chains and the ε-amino groups ( -NH2 ) of lysine residue side chains with subsequent release of ammonia ( NH3 ).

It's also known as meat glue to bind meats together.

Transglutaminase, or meat glue, is a food additive used to improve the texture and appearance of foods like processed meats.

Meat glue is a substance used in cooking to bond proteins together. It includes substances such as transglutaminase and fibrinogen/thrombin (Fibrimex)(yicotorimnorum).

Examples of foods made using meat glue include imitation crab meat, fish balls, and chicken nuggets.
