How To Identify Fake Eggs – Simple tips to spot fake eggs Processed foods have enough of artificial ingredients and chemicals to spoil your health. Added to that if you fall prey to synthetic foods like plastic rice and fake sugar, your health goes for a toss.

If reports are to be believed, after plastic rice and sugar, there are fake eggs in the market! What are these fake eggs?

Some reports say that they are made of chemicals. Gypsum powder, paraffin wax and calcium carbonate are being used to make the egg shells. What about the egg white and the yolk? Well, they are said to be made of benzoic acid, calcium chloride, gelatin, alum, sodium alginate and certain other compounds!

Such chemicals could cause liver issues, nerve cell damage and metabolism disorders.

Well, whether the reports are true or not, it is better to be careful when you buy eggs.

Here are some ways to check whether the eggs you bought are fake or real.

# 1 Real egg shells are not so shiny. If the eggs shells are bright and shiny, they could be fake ones!

# 2 Using your finger, touch the shell. The surface will be smooth if the eggs are real. Fake egg shells have a rough surface.

# 3 When you shake a real egg, you probably won’t be able to hear anything but fake eggs contain fluids that could make a noise.

# 4 When you crack the egg, real eggs show the yolk separately whereas in fake eggs, both the yolk and the egg white fluid tend to mix.

# 5 Well, these are just a few tips. Actually, it isn’t so easy to identify fake eggs. So, be careful and buy eggs from a trusted source.

A shopkeeper in Kolkata was arrested on Friday (Mar 31) for allegedly selling fake eggs. According to Kolkata Police’s Enforcement Branch, Md. Shamim Ansari was arrested from Park Circus Market for selling alleged artificial eggs to Anita Kumar, who lodged a complaint at Karaya police station on Thursday (Mar 30) after she discovered that the eggs she bought was “fake” and “felt like plastic” when spread out on the pan.

The Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) said it has ordered an investigation into the matter.

Pertinently, fake chicken eggs from China have reportedly flooded Indian, Bangladeshi, Pakistani and Thai markets.

According to reports, fake egg shells are being made with calcium carbonate, paraffin wax and gypsum powder, while egg yolk and egg white are being made of sodium alginate, alum, gelatin, edible calcium chloride, benzoic acid, water and food colouring.

The chemicals are said to trigger severe health problems including metabolism disorder, brain and nerve cell damage, liver diseases and affect blood production.

While it is very difficult to differentiate between fake and real chicken eggs, here are a few tips to do a fast check:

1. To start with, the shell of fake eggs are shinier than real ones.

2. Feel the outer shell. Fake eggs will be rougher than real eggs.

3. Shake the egg before breaking it. If you hear some noises inside the shell (water overflowing), then it is a fake one.

4. Tap the egg lightly enough not to break it. The sound will be more crisp if the egg is real.

5. If the egg is fake, unlike real ones, the egg yolk and white will mix together as soon as you break it and pour on a pan as both are made of the same substance.

6. Real eggs have a raw smell while fake eggs are odourless.

7. Know that you are frying a fake egg if the yolk spreads without you touching it.

8. Put the shell in fire. If the egg is fake, the shell will catch fire or start melting with a plastic-like odour coming out of it.
