Now I am not sure about the authenticity of this piece of news but a friend has forwarded this to me and it seems that there are even bogus buns out there!!
Due to certain policy issue...haha, I will not reveal the name of the country or anything or else I may be liable for defamation charges.
Anyway, suffice to say that there has been way lots of similar fake items which have been sprouting or rumoured to originate from this place.
This is the latest; in one of the recordings of this bun manufacturing factory, they were found to use waste paper and cardboard; which made up about 60 per cent of the bao and mixing it with the fatty meat to produce what they call as the "bao zi".
How did they manage to capture this?
It was actually done by the reporters of the particular broadcast corporation in line with the current scare of their continuous discoveries of bizarre and dangerous stuffs ranging from toxic toothpaste and toys painted with lead-based paints!!
This was done in their desperate efforts to cut down cost; and the owners didn't think the consumers could tell a difference:o
They used caustic soda; a toxic solvent used in the industry to soak the cardboard to produce that consistency taste and then mixed it with 40% of fatty meat and monosodium glutamate (MSG/flavour enhancer) before putting it on market shelves.
The owners do not consume their own baos!!
Woww....these crazy and inconsiderate folks!!
Don't they give you a new perspective of eating baos?
