Nonsense food (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

tripe

This clue is a double definition.

'nonsense' is the first definition.
(informal term for nonsense or false information)

'food' is the second definition.
(tripe is a kind of food)

(Other definitions for tripe that I've seen before include "Edible nonsense?" , "Junk; food" , "Garbage" , "Rubbish, nonsense" , "which a freegan might eat?" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
