All he found was broken pieces of concrete inside. Walnut trees cements “manufacturers” wrapped in concrete to prevent making a suspicious noise was shaken when the nut. The guy who actually “invented and made” cemented these nuts was trying to get more money by selling these fake nuts that were much heavier than the real thing. Yes, just stay away from these “nuts”!

False peas “manufacturers” make a lot of money with the sale of this dangerous product, and one of the illegal workshops was producing them for three years before it was investigated and shut down. The people who made these false peas used: peas and soybeans. After that, they add green dye and sodium metabisulfite, which were used as bleach and preservatives. This dye is prohibited and can not be used in production, as can cancer can and hinder the body’s ability to absorb calcium. food safety expert based in Beijing, Sang Liwei, he says these toxic artificial green peas have been found in Hunan and Guangdong before, but it seems that the news did not get enough attention from officials. According to Sang Liwei, China’s only officials label a case of a food safety incident when at least one person dies as a result. It also says that in such cases only when the risk lies in the possible long-term illnesses caused by misuse of additives, it is not surprising to see delayed handling.

I really think we all know that industrial salt can not be consumed by humans and which it is marked as “unfit for human consumption.” Well, this is the main reason why industrial salt is much cheaper. And unfortunately, this was the main reason (also) why 788 tons of it was sold for at least 12 people during 13 years as table salt.

And another thing worrying is that their white pepper is mainly composed of flour. When authorities caught him, his excuse was amazing. His excuse for selling these fake peppers in was that they would not kill people. Incredible true? And Given that fake foods in China are not allowed investigated until someone dies, how many items are sold more made of fake items and chemicals because they would not kill people.

Ginseng prices have increased rapidly, which was the main reason why many ginseng retailers who are trying to find a way to keep making profits. Therefore, they came up with a solution and the solution was to boil the roots of sugar, which makes them much heavier and therefore more profitable. Wei Feng, an expert in Chinese medicine from the National Institute for the Control of Food and Drug (NIFDC) said this is a big problem, not only because retailers are ripping-off customers, but also because boiling ginseng sugar you could strip him of most of its medicinal properties.
