Original egg vs plastic egg: How to differentiate between the two?
Do you know that recently the circulation of fake/plastic eggs was reported in Kerala’s markets? Some people have named them ‘Chinese eggs’ as well. Therefore, before buying these eggs, check whether they are real or not. But how to identify? For this, we’ve got you sorted.
Firstly, all you need to know is how plastic eggs are made. The plastic egg is produced by combining hot water in the sodium alginate and adding alum, benzoic and gelatin to the mixture. This mixture makes both the yellow and the white parts of the egg. However, only a slight yellow colour is added to the mix for the yellow part, while the eggshell is made from calcium chloride.
Plastic eggs look like real ones; that’s why most people cannot differentiate between these two. But we will tell you some methods by which you will immediately find out the difference between real and fake eggs.
So in these easy ways, find out the difference between real and fake eggs and keep yourself safe.
