Many places in China are actually known for their fine cuisine and specific taste. China is also known for many specific products we use daily. The real and the best example that people love Chinese food are the many Chinese restaurants around the world. However, its food industry has taken a lot of pressure lately for its troubling lack of standards and many people are starting to avoid importing Chinese products, and we can’t blame them. It’s very easy to understand why.
For years, China has been creating and selling outrageously-toxic fake and cheap products and food items. While there is no evidence that the vast majority of these products is being sold in the United States, sites such as eBay , Amazon.com, AliExpress and other websites, have been seen selling food that sometimes openly, sometimes discreetly are being made and often shipped straight from the country.
In this post, we are going to show you 10 Chinese illegal food products and we highly recommend staying away from these products! You don’t know what kind of harmful substances they contain and what they can do to your health.
Here is the list of ten illegal counterfeit food products from China that will make you think twice about buying food from online stores that ship from the other side of the world:
- Imitation Eggs
You won’t believe this one, it’s absolutely shocking! People are publishing instructional videos on some Chinese websites on how to make $70 a day by producing and selling fake eggs. The chemicals that are required to make these “fake and dangerous eggs” are: Alginic Acid, Potassium Alum, Gelatin, Calcium Chloride, water and artificial color. They make the eggshells from Calcium Carbonate. Eating these eggs may cause memory-loss and dementia. Be extra careful what you buy, because these eggs can be really dangerous for you and your family!
- Walnuts stuffed with cement
Walnuts stuffed with cement? You haven’t heard about this one, right? In 2012 a Chinese guy has bought shelled walnuts in Zhengzhou city, China. The only thing he found was broken concrete pieces inside. The walnut-cements “manufacturers” wrapped the concrete in paper to prevent it from making a suspicious noise when the nut was shaken. The guy who actually “invented and made” these cemented walnuts was trying to get more money by selling these fake walnuts that were much heavier than the real thing.
