    Surely this one is a joke !!??

    • Key

      No, this is not a joke, Chinese people have managed to make fake chicken eggs,they are very profitable do a search online yourself.

      • Bearfoot

        Why would they fake the inside of the egg if all you’re going to see until you buy it is the shell?

      • bernard

        …because they WANT repeat customers! You moron!

        You’re not a business minded person aren’t you!???

      • Bearfoot

        And why would someone buy again from the person who sold them a fake egg?

        You’re an idiot aren’t you?

      • EggYolk


        It’s cheaper to make fake eggs than to harvest real eggs. So the people who make the fake eggs will make a higher profit if they sell their fake eggs the same price as the real eggs. But they can also sell it for a price that’s a little lower than the real eggs. This way, more people would buy their product over the real eggs and they can keep making more money. The whole point is that they’re tricking the customers to make more money.

        Someone would buy again from the person who sold them a fake egg because they don’t know that it’s a fake egg. That’s why this article exists in the first place – so that people can be educated about the difference between a real and a fake egg.

        And you really think that people are that stupid?


        But then again, you did feel the need to reply to something I posted FOUR YEARS ago.

      • EggYolk

        *facepalms* Of course people are not that stupid. Who would willingly buy food that will cause them dementia in the long run? Why do you think those fake egg producers are making it look like real eggs?
        Again, that’s why this post exists – to educate people so that they can spot the difference themselves.

        Although China is a major economy, it is still a developing country. In their population of 1.3 billion, many are still stricken by poverty. So if they see eggs for sale at half price, why wouldn’t they take the opportunity to buy it? And do you think those people would have access to the Internet to see posts like this, posts that could educate them about this whole fake egg business? No. You can’t just assume that everyone thinks the same way as you or that they have the same opportunities as you do.

        Besides, your post isn’t four years old – I replied to your comment dated 2012/01/21. I suppose you mean four /months/ ago. Either way, just thought I’d express myself. I live in a free country, after all.

      • Bearfoot

        Ah.. the “free country” argument.

        yes, you do live in a free country…

        And I’m free to think you’re an idiot for what you do and say.

        And BTW, freedom of speech only applies to the government, you do not have freedom of speech on this forum.

        so gawd blezz amerka, dude.
        *tips his hat*

      • EggYolk

        You’re free to think whatever you want. However, that does not change the fact that your internet personality is obnoxious. :)
        Besides, you can think what you like, but if you act upon your disdain, it could turn into all sorts of illegal crimes that you’re /not/ free to do.

        By the way, USA is not the only country that has freedom of speech in their human rights codes…so I have no idea why you would assume I’m from there. o.o

      • Jack Chemist

        Bearfoot, you are the idiot and it is proven with every post of yours. Are you mentally defective 12 year old? You sure sound like one. Idiot.

      • Dodoria

        He must be eating a lot of fake eggs.

      • veyis

        hahahha… that’s for sure!!!

      • Semi-Crazy

        My roommate bought fake eggs from walmart. He is an idiot, he thinks he was saving 4 cents over the package beside. He didnt open the carton to see and paid for 2 that were broken as well. I thought it was neat how the entire white/yoke was under the other 10 eggs. He will buy them next time he shops, he is an idiot and will try to save 4 cents at any cost

  2. bucko

    What a good idea! Showing in detail how everyone can cheat and make fake eggs to make a few yuen. Poison people, commit fraud and teach the Chinese how to be more tricky than they already are! YOU should be arrested and made to consume these eggs everyday as you sit in jail for the next 10 years. Go f^%k yourself.

    • Chiiinaaa

      What a stupid comment.

    • suzana

      bucko , u r right

  3. Bob

    I have a really hard time buying this story. Conceivably one could eventually make this process profitable, but it seems a stretch to believe that it could become profitable quickly enough to take the place of real egg production. It just doesn’t even make sense why you would experiment and perfect this process.

    • Key

      Believe or not, Fake chicken eggs were really common since last year and the beginning of this year in China and profitable. Just do a search on the subject yourself.

      • yaho

        a search will just give you hits of the hoax itself. This was debunked long ago

  4. Mitur Binesderti

    NO! Fake eggs are real! They were used in the moon landing hoax because real eggs would have caused a vorpal discongruency in the flux capacitors!

  5. Mark

    I am assuming this must be fake BUT certainly making the yolk the same way as alginate based food pearls is perfectly workable.

    the reason I am guessing this is fake is that there is no mention of flavourings (unless I missed something), and the idea that the white and yoke taste the same and have the same texture is a nonsense – but it seems colourant is the only difference between fake white and fake yolk.

  6. patricia

    Yuck. I hope I don’t none of those n usa.

  7. mahio

    dont making fake eggs, it is spoiling the human health.we should fight towords it.

  11. fake egg haters

    what the hack and why on earth mus be such thing being invented??
    shit chines.everything they want to copy..

    • Bearfoot

      What the fuck semi-literate racism.

      English,motherfucker, do you speak it?

      apparently not.

  12. Kerry

    It is good you are telling and warning everyone about this, what you posted not just teaches us how to identify fake eggs but explaining in detail of how it is made..you just gave an idea to so many other people who doesn’t know about this to make a business out of this. When you post something don’t expect everyone is thinking the same. There would also be people who would think and take these things differently.

  13. hatred

    why do they create fake egg why chinese do like this they are making lot of sin

  14. Abdul

    The undeniable fact is some ruthless and greedy Chinese are producing fake eggs to deceive consumers and they don’t give a damn to your health. They know very well that the dangerous fake eggs would harm you and your family.

    Fake egg sellers face jail and fine

    KUALA LUMPUR – Those caught selling fake eggs will be slapped with hefty fines or even jailed, warned the Health Ministry and the Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry yesterday.

  15. Maryellen Zietz

    Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!

  16. Tim

    Hi I attend a school in America called The Culinary Institute of America. I’m learning to become a chef. I was wondering if you could tell me how to make the fake egg in more detail. What do I need and how do I make it?

  17. Sodium Alginate

    wow.. is this for real?? hahaha cant believe Chinese would go so far as to make one of this just to make a profit.. but look at the bright side its show their ingenuity and “innovation”

  18. suneet

    fake egg makers must be punished and capital punishment to death be imposed on this crime ,
    dont kill innoncent people one day their own baies will eat it

    • Bearfoot

      Nice rational thought out response.


  19. xxxx

    Bearfoot is a pot calling the kettle black. Does he just hang around waiting for a supposedly racist comment? Is he the racism police? What does greedy people defrauding and poisoning innocent people have to do with race?

    • Bearfoot

      I answer these comments because I have it set to notify me when a new comment is posted. If you said something intelligent and worthwhile I would reply in kind.

      But when you misuse saying in an attempt to insult me, I respond in kind.

      It’s not a position of the pot calling the kettle black, I never called anyone a racist.

      This post, and many of the replies I’ve seen, are rash and stupid attempts to make china look worse than it already is.

      Seriously, there’s someone in the comments calling for capital punishment against people who sell these.

      People calling me an idiot because i point out that there are flaws in the logic and generally harassing me with idiotic and poorly spelled out rants, simply because I don’t agree with them.

      Well excuse me for reacting in kind.

  20. Josh

    Normally I don’t comment, but I just can’t help it after seeing some of the comments. I am an American, and I live in China. Yes, fake eggs definitely exist.

    Bob asked, “How can it be profitable?”

    Well, the answer is “poor peasants”. If a peasant makes fake eggs and makes 1 dollar per day, it is profitable! Labor is extremely cheap in China, so business that involves this cheap labor can be very profitable.

    Bearfoot said: “And why would someone buy again from the person who sold them a fake egg? You’re an idiot aren’t you?”

    Oh Bearfoot, you have some things to learn. The reason they have repeat buyers is because it is INCREDIBLY hard to spot a fake. I have some sitting in my kitchen right now(well, I’m pretty certain…I will verify it and report back), which is why I am on this site. I can tell you they look and taste real.

    Also, with a population over 1.3B, you will have plenty of buyers even if you are found out! Additionally, I would not be surprised if some of the markets that are selling these (after purchasing from the manufacturers) know the eggs are fake, but don’t care.

    I suspected something was not quite right with my eggs because they are delicate and the shell is fragile. After a couple days of using them (unfortunately) I realized the inner skin is missing.

    This is not the only fake product in China, ya know… Cooking oil from feces is another popular one. Cigarettes are also common. I believe that cigs are a multibillion dollar industry, and some people prefer the fakes! Sometimes I feel that everything in China is fake…

  21. Josh

    Oh, and I also support the capital punishment for these guys. I understand that the plight for some of the poor Chinese is terrible, but that does not give them the excuse to poison countless people including children.

  26. nuclear

    I should say that they are really good at copying and almost everything is fake in China. Oh by the way, I’m not a racist, Chinese are, especially in my country…

  27. voiceofhomer

    Chinese idiots, make fake pearls, there is more money in that than fake eggs.

    And it is much easier to make.

    Send me $99.99 and I will let you in on the secret.

    Look for my email, coming soon.

    How to identify Fake 100 year eggs? These are delicious.

  29. jay

    You all know that some of these ingredients aren’t even harmful at all? Cellulose is actually just fiber, and “amino acid” is a vague term for things that are naturally found in nuts, meats, and most importantly you. Of course a lot of these are harmful so I still wouldn’t recommend eating it. Just don’t take everything you hear for granted.

  30. MeowMix

    Fake eggs? It’s true. Read it on NYTimes. Also in USA, in Silicon Valley, they’re making “healthy” fake eggs. Read it in Forbes.

  31. Richard Roman

    How to turn real egg into ‘Fake’ egg?

    Easy, buy any real eggs and keep it for longer then 3 weeks. TADA!!

    Congratulation! You’ve successfully produce a *FAKE* egg.

  38. izan

    I’ve seen it on Discovery Channel, and it’s true back in China they’re making fake egg for shait provit. Fucking chinese!!!

  39. Boni

    It is fake or real I am not thinking about that, but If it possible to produce an egg which would be 100% similarity in nature then that may reduce the hunger. The God gives us knowledge a vast to think and invent. So, we can try honestly.

  40. Bearfoot

    Nice commentary guy.

    way to lump millions of people into the same boat.
