Why would someone bother to make fake egg? :angry:

Isn't it cheaper to buy a real one than making a fake one? :P

detectable only because it smelled like chemicals....well easily corrected. It looks real even while cooking.

This is horrible. Ingenious, certainly. Brilliant, undoubtably. But horrible.

From the articles I have googled, these fake eggs are 10 fold cheaper compared to real eggs. Thus their production.

Make and eat one?

Making one would be interesting. Cooking one, certainly. Fried and hardboiled. But eating one is a no.

Minnie, I would not of course want to eat one of them. 'Genius' because it is so near to perfection according to the description with such easy, simple, and cheap steps. It is cheating but still some intelligent and genius mind that succeeded in making this. Had it any good use, this could have been given some award.

In the comments below that article, someone says this was just a student project, not real business. It would make sense if that was true :lol:

Looking at it again, the article is an old one. . I googled to see if any reliable news source has mentioned about this - this is such a scary shit that it would alarm the whole world if it were true. . but I have not found any reliable source which mentioned 'Chinese Fake Eggs'.

Is anyone going to try make one?

I suppose these eggs are "suitable for vegetarians" :lol: plus, there's no PETA involvement due to eating baby chickens.
@ BB: if the smell of chemicals comes out only when the eggs are cooked you should be careful if you still put raw eggs on your rice.
cheers.

But the smell is before the cooking - smell of the mother hen :)

That is....if she posts at all.

Ooh, it just reminds me I have a reprint of a 1920 cookbook and there are different ways of checking if the product on the market isn't fake (for example, if there's no flour in the cream, to make it thicker - I guess today's cream with additives would be turned down immediately as a fake... actually half of nowadays mass produced food would).
There are also many ways to keep things edible without the fridge. Eggs kept in the calcium solution, salted butter and such :)
Even in the 50's, the flats had a "cold cuboard" in the kitchen. It was an actual cupboard with a small hole in the wall. On cold days, it acted like a fridge or a freezer :D Mom says (she was a little kid in the 60's, and fridges were just starting to get popular back then) the calcium stored eggs smell horrible and are usable just as an ingredient, not for eating them cooked or fried.

Still in places where there are no fridge, they use different ways to keep things cold. I was particularly impressed by how they kept 'coke' cold when I was trekking long ago - earthen pot with water buried in ground. It was as cold as it should be.

There is even better ways in Russia (and may be in Canada also) - just hang it outside the window :wacko:

i don't know about Russia, but in Canada you can leave your beer to cool down outside, but don't do it for longer than ~ 8 min, otherwise the bottles freeze and break.
