FAKE ARTIFICIAL EGGS THREAT YOUR LIFE

Fake eggs are now a days freely available in all markets with or without the knowledge of authorities. Fake eggs may cause great danger to your health. Valid studies are not yet done regarding the health hazards of such eggs. Consumers are feeling much difficulty in identifying fake eggs from real eggs. The mafia behind fake eggs are so strong that lessons for manufacturing fake eggs in most economic way are now available in internet also.

China is found to be the source of such fake eggs where small scale production of fake eggs by individuals and big scale production by entrepreneurs. The manufacturing cost of such fake eggs are almost half price of natural egg. Wholesale price of one egg is 0.15 Yuan ($0.03) each which is almost the half the price of a real egg.

Recently I got an email stating the process and some photos   of such eggs. I would like to share it with my readers, to know the reality behind this. If this is true, then we must fight against this artificial food and kindly spread this post to all forums as a warning message.

HOW TO MANUFACTURE FAKE EGGS

As per that email, the primary ingredients are gelatin, an unknown powder, benzoic acid, coagulating material and even alum.Various molding equipments are as given below.

For manufacturing  egg yolk, some lemon-yellow coloring powder is mixed to a liquid and the liquid is then poured into a round-shaped plastic mould and mixed with calcium chloride solution.This gives the 'yolk' a thin outer membrane, firming it up. The egg is then shaped with a mould. The shell is also formed as an outside layer. Paraffin wax and an unidentified white liquid are poured into the fake egg, which is then left to dry.CHINA FAKE EGGS SHELLCHINA FAKE EGG MANUFACTURING PROCESS 

 

 

 

Some moulding techniques are applied to make the shape same as that of natural egg. This will take some time and usually done by hand only.
