Can white fungus really replace bird’s nest?
You should often hear similar words: "Tremella is the bird's nest of the poor" but can the nutrition of white fungus really rival that of bird's nest?
So what is bird’s nest Where is it?
Before analyzing the pros and cons of bird’s nest and white fungus, let’s first understand what they are.
Bird’s nest is flat and sweet in nature, has the functions of nourishing lungs and qi, nourishing qi, nourishing the skin, delaying aging, anti-cancer, anti-cancer, strengthening resistance, firming and rejuvenating skin.
White fungus, also known as white fungus, snow fungus, white fungus, etc., It is the fruiting body of the Tremella family plant Tremella. Like bird's nest, white fungus is flat and sweet, and has certain nutritional value.
However, why usually bird’s nest is more than 10 times more expensive than white fungus? The cost of bird's nest is its origin, craftsmanship and unique nutritional value.
I. Your birthplace
Bird’s nest is mostly produced in Southeast Asia, it is a bird of Swiftlet family, golden swiftlet incubating small golden silk for laying eggs Nests built by swallows with salivary secretions.
Swallow one year Three times of spawning and three times of bird’s nest picking. Based on the finished bird’s nest of 5 grams, more than 30 pairs of swallows can harvest one catty of bird’s nest a year of hard work. This is insufficient for the strong market demand. /strong>
Second, the processing technology is important
The natural and additive-free bird’s nest we admire must be made by hand. Wool craft, this craft is not only time-consuming but also cost-intensive, our challengeMaster Yan can pick 50 grams of bird's nest that meets the standard in one day. This is a very inefficient and costly processing process. Correspondingly, the high processing cost also increases the price of bird's nest.
3. The nutritional value is valuable
Bird’s nest is rich in sialic acid, protein, carbohydrate, fat, fiber, water, silver , Phosphorus, potassium, sulfur and other nutrients.
Is the effect of white fungus and bird’s nest different?
When it comes to nutritional value and efficacy, Tremella is not inferior. Tremella is rich in gums, vitamins and amino acids. In the royal nobles of the past dynasties, the white fungus was also regarded as a "product for prolonging life" and "a good medicine for immortality".
If onlyFrom a nutritional point of view, Tremella and Bird's Nest do have similar characteristics, but the difference in nutrients and water solubility causes them to be very different and cannot replace each other.
After comparing the two, it is found that the water content in bird's nest is very low, the protein content is the highest, and the fat content is the lowest.
Another point is that the total content of essential amino acids in bird's nest is the highest. There are many kinds of amino acids that make up the human body, of which 8 are not synthesized by the human body and must be provided by food, so they are called "essential amino acids".
The amino acids contained in bird’s nests completely include these 8 essential amino acids, which are fully in line with the requirements put forward by nutritionists. Optimal ratio. The sum of essential amino acids in Tremella contains only 6 kinds, lacking isoleucine and leucine.
In addition, the key effective ingredient in bird’s nest-sialic acid, is found in human brain or brain The central nervous system plays an important role in the development of the central nervous system. Ordinary consumption can achieve the effects of enhancing immunity, memory and learning ability. At present, bird’s nest is the only way for humans to obtain a large amount of sialic acid from food.
Therefore, the nutrients in bird’s nest are irreplaceable, resulting in different final effects. For example, beauty, The effects of supplementing nutrition, anti-cancer and anti-cancer are too important for white fungus, but for bird’s nest, it is a piece of cake.
Bird’s nest and white fungus are both good choices, the difference is Reflected in the two major aspects of price and nutritional efficacy, the price of white fungus is cheaper than that, but in terms of nutrition, the nutritional value of bird’s nest is better.
