Bird’s Nest Nutritional Value

Birds Nest

Do you believe it is good for your health?

The first photos on the nests are exactly what it is when harvesting.

Black and dirty.

When you see the end product it is white.

These photos on the processing are also real.

Bleached and no value.

Bird’s nest?

Think again…. before eating.

Birds’ nests which are just taken down are very dirty and smelly. Nobody will think of consuming them at all if they see the condition. Now let me show you how the birds’ nests are processed so that they are edible. The workers are getting rid of the fine feathers, grass and dirt.

After getting rid of the feathers and grass, the birds’ nests are cut into smaller pieces for further cleaning.

Then they are soaked in water for other smaller particles to float to the top.

Then they are soaked in a kind of bleaching agent for them to turn white.

The bleaching agent becomes cloudy after reacting..

After bleaching,

hot boiling water is used to get rid of the smell of bleaching agent.

The parts of the birds’ nests which cannot be bleached will be taken out.

Now it’s the time to mould them into shape.

After moulding them into shapes, they are dried.

After drying them for one day and one night,

the birds’ nests are ready

Malaysia and Indonesia produce at least 800-2000kg of Cao Yan and Mao Yan. In these birds’ nests, only a small amount is edible (the saliva of the bird), but they are very dirty and almost black in colour. No one would want to consume it. So should we just throw it away and waste it?

No, there is of course a way of turning them into attractive products, which is bleaching. Some suppliers use H2O2 to get rid of the smell of second class birds nest.

H2O2 is a rather poisonous chemical,

and it might cause cancer.

Only some food contain small amount of SO2 and SO3 (not more than 0.00000002%).

In Japan the amount of SO2 and SO3 in all sorts of food must not exceed 0.00000001.

After bleaching

Before this, the nutritional value in Cao Yan and Mao Yan is already very low. After processing using chemicals, the nutrient in the birds’ nests is totally destroyed. Therefore, the nutritional value can be said to be lower than Pek Bok Nee [white fungus]… have you eaten before?

The birds’ nests which are bleached have lost its original shape. So, businessmen turn these birds’ nests into different kinds of shape. The most common shapes are leaf-shaped, strips and round shape. There are also those who dye the birds nest into yellow/ red colour, and cheat the unknown consumers by selling these birds’ nests to them as Xue Yan/Jin.

The nutritional value of these birds’ nest is gone and totally worthless after processing them with lots of chemicals.

Do you think that people will still be selling them?

Do you still want to buy and consume it?

I forwarded this just as I received it.
The original author’s name is unknown.

So With Appreciation and Thanks to his work and effort.

Car Insurance Claim Void

Car Insurance Claim Void

In any case, when making a police report, you must ALWAYS report that the CAR WAS STOLEN without your knowledge. If you reported it as the car was driven away when it was left in the car wash, no insurance will pay you. You can only sue the company for negligence.

Advice:

Let the professional do the report

I have a car crashed and broke a lampost, and the towing agent told me to pay RM100  to let him and “the professional” do the standard report that can  guarantee dapat the insurance claims!

I got the claims and escape paying for the broken lampost!

I was warned:

If I were to report the actual reasons my way on how the car crashed, I won’t be able to get the insurance claims.

Note: 

Reasons such as tyre bursts, driver Fall asleep,  car skidded, heavy rain, car went out of control, road slipery etc.. all these reasons will be rejected by insurance companies and you get zero claims. It must be reported as an accident not because of your fault,  the car’s technical fault, road fault, weather’s fault but must put the blame on others as the cause of accident!

You can declare yourself as the cause of accident, can still get the insurance claim, but the Police will fine you first RM300 and you have to pay for the replacement of the damaged lampost!

A Lam post at Plus Highway will cost you RM4000 !  

In an unrelated event: 

Loss of I.C.

If you lose your IC and go to get a replacement at the Bahagain Pendaftaran, the fine is RM100 for a first offender.

If you lost your IC again, the fine will be doubled and so on. If you made the police report that your IC was pick-pocketed (somewhere, say Pasar Malam) the Bahagian Pendaftaran won’t fine you! You get the replacement for free within 24 hr!

Just trying to out smart them.

Same thing if you parked your car under a tree and a branch fell off and damaged your car. If you report as a parked car – your claim will not be entertained.

You have to report that while you are driving your car, the branch fell and damaged your car.
