How do you know that he transubstantiates into the form after his death, and not into the form before his death, which would be cannibalism, as Linusthe2nd pointed out in comment #4.
As I understand it, I don't think we do know that - the Body and Blood of Christ is his entire divinity (man and God).
The more littleral translation of the Bible verse is quite explicit:
"Amen, amen, I say to you. If you should not eat the flesh of the SON OF MAN and you should not drink HIS blood, you have no life in yourselves. 54 The (person) gnawing on MY flesh and drinking MY blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. For MY flesh is true food and MY blood is true drink. 56 The (person) gnawing on MY flesh and drinking MY blood remains in me and I (remain) in him. "
The Eucharist certainly doesn't conform to the regulations of kashrut. :)
