House Bird Nest is better than Cave Bird Nest? True or not?

In Malaysia, cave bird's nests are mainly harvested from natural caves in the states of Sarawak and Sabah on Borneo Island. The famous caves are located at Niah, Kakus, Baram and Tinjar.

The harvesters often face considerable danger when harvesting these bird nests. Since cave bird nests are formed by free, naturally-living swiftlets, some people consider them to be more valuable than birds nests found in houses. Thus, cave bird nests often fetch a higher price as compared to house bird nest.

However, unknown to many consumers in the market, cave bird nests generally contain more foreign materials and feathers than house nests.  Besides, cave bird nest are exposed to the risk of heavy metals contamination from external environmental factors. So, consume cave bird's nest at your own risk!

Red Blood Bird's Nest (Red Bird Nest) Is Not As Good As You Think!

It is believed that the red-coloured “blood bird nest” is specially prized because they are formed by swiftlets that vomit their blood to build the nest.

There is also another belief that the “blood bird nest” was formed by a different species of swiftlet which consumes different kinds of water and food.

Contrary to these beliefs, swiftlets do not vomit blood; neither do they consume different kinds of water and food. In general, Bird's nests act like sponges. They absorb the chemical elements from the environment such as iron from the cave walls, dirty waters and poisons. Hence, “blood bird nest” may be harmful rather than beneficial to human beings.

Some dishonest bird nest traders even dyed their bird’s nests red in order to fetch a higher price. So, play it safe – choose only pure bird’s nest!
