Besides the media tasting, we also have an enriching workshop on birds nest. Learning how to identity the different types of birds nest, differentiation of birds nest with and without bleaching. If you happen to buy chemically treated and bleached, it may increase the chances of your child developing asthma. Whilst pure edible birds nests are rich in nutrients with health benefits for our body. So, it is important to buy the real birds nest without bleaching.

So, how do we identify the real birds nest without bleaching?

  1. The best way is by smelling. Real birds nest without bleaching has a nice egg smell after being cooked. Whilst bleached birds nest has a rather plastic smell.
  2. Visual experience. Real birds nest is very fragile and easy to dissolve in water. It will expand four to seven times bigger than the original size. Real birds nest will have its water translucent throughout the soaking process. Whilst the bleached birds nest have signs of decolouring into the water due to bleaching. I have also spotted that the corner of real birds nest is smooth as compared to bleached birds nest that is thick and chunky.
  3. Or simply visit Nesture for your real birds nest; less the excess worries.

Nesture oversees the whole process; from harvesting birds nest from the abundant island of Sumatra, Indonesia to cleaning to packaging. Though Nesture is located in Singapore, there are many CCTV in Indonesia factory that the owner can monitor its processes locally. Rest assure that you are eating is 100% real birds nest without bleaching.
