OPINION | Food that Chinese mostly like

When we are at a supermarket and it’s often the low prices that catch our attention and fill our carts. Even a conscious consumer may look at an ingredient list, but not think beyond that. Knowing the geographic origin of what we eat is increasingly important as our food supply chain becomes progressively globalized.

While we debate issues like GMO’s and their dependance on Roundup here in the United States, we readily import foods from countries where food production is akin to an unregulated Wild West.


Here are 10 foods gnarly examples of “Made in China” foods to keep off your plate:

plastic rice1. Plastic Rice. Plastic Rice. Yes, I said that twice just in case you are like me and had

trouble wrapping your head around it the first time. Chinese authorities have been making seizures of fake rice that consists of a mixture potatoes, sweet potatoes, and an industrial resin. The giveaway is that it stays a bit hard when cooked and is difficult to digest. Hmm… do ya think!?

2. Garlic. In 2015 we imported 138 million pounds of garlic- a fair chunk of it labeled as “organic”. Chinese garlic is bleached with a chemical broth that stops sprouting and then is often disinfected with methyl bromide- a known toxin that causes respiratory and central nerve system damage. (The disinfecting is down to kill pathogens in the raw sewage used to grow the garlic) Be aware, foreign “organic” labels are meaningless.

Garlic grown in the U.S. will have some roots left on the bottom and are generally larger than Chinese bulbs. The root factor is often touted as telltale, but it can be misleading as many U.S. growers also remove the roots to prevent molding. In the long run, it is better off to go by a brand name that clearly labels the product as being grown domestically.

industrial salt3. Salt. Imported Chinese salt may contain industrial salt. Industrial salt increases cardiac risk and can be easily mixed with table salt. There is no iodine in industrial salt and it can cause hypothyroid swelling and mental impairment. Edible salt is 10 times more expensive that industrial salt, making counterfeiting extremely profitable.

4. Tilapia. Tilapia has been a highly marketed fish over the last decade. Last year, 80% of our Tilapia, 382 million pounds, was imported from China. Chinese Tilapia is farm raised and pumped full of antibiotics and growth hormones.

Multiple reports by the FDA and the Center for Food Safety have found that at least 50% of Chinese tilapia are fed animal feces. Would you like some poop with that fish? Tasty! Hence the need for those massive doses of antibiotics.


After a little pause due to the personalty of Corona antivenin, Chinese shops are now restarting serving dishes qualified of bringing another disaster to the world. Since the outbreak of Corona antivenin, Africans taken to the social media to reprimand the Chinese over their bad eating habits. 

Africans are advising them to stop their edacious eating habits that may breed another outbreak of sickness but they aren't attending. Before, they've gone back to their bastinado brume, piglets sauce, pork belly, fried cockroaches, shrimp with bamboo shoots and beaucoup other diets Africans are advising them to desist from. 

In fact, some Africans, especially south Africans and Nigerians have sworn to sue China for bringing agony to the poor landmass and not delivering aids to combat the diseaseSince the outbreak of Corona contagion, now also known as the Wuhan contagion, beaucoup countries have been on cinch down. Yea Italy have suffered the most casualties added than China where the contagion dischargedfrom.

Africans have been consigning strong communications to Chinese that should they ultimately bring another ail to humanity by eating banned foods and beasties, they will coerce China to pay compensation to Africans because the landmass isn't buoyant enough to buck another outbreak.

They egged the Chinese so to be alive of what they eat and desist from foods condemned by God which is able of bringing problems to man.
