    Bird's Nest is the nutrient-rich salivary secretion of swiftlets. This gel secretion is an integral component to building the swiftlet nests, which are found in dangerous and highly inaccessible locations like steep cliffs, overhanging crags and deep caves.

    Out of more than 30 species of swiflets, only 2 species of the genus Aerodramus and 1 of the genus Collocalia make edible saliva nest. Aerodramus fuciphaga is the swiftlet that produces the highest quality of edible Bird’s Nest, because its nests are white and clean with minimum feathers. It is found only in Southeast Asia. Tedious process of cleaning approximately 10 nests takes approximately 8 hour by a person.

    The major components of Bird's Nests are its glycoproteins, carbohydrates and trace elements. Scientific findings by the researchers in Chinese University of Hong Kong discovered that epidermal growth factor (EGF) is present in Bird's Nests. EGF is a low Molecular weight polypeptide which provides beauty support.

    The most abundant amino acids are serine, threonine, aspartic acid, glutamic acid, proline, and valine.  When consumed, they help to provide general wellness.

    Pamper and indulge your mum with this easy to prepare cave bird’s nest.  Naturally white in colour, it is the perfect show of sincerity.
