I have a very strong feeling that one day human being will discover the best use of raw bird nests.
I will no longer those bird nests soup but something else.
How wonderful it will be if we can extract some minute component in swiftlet raw nests and it will help to cure some chronic diseases that until now is with little solution.
Suddenly out of the blue you bump into some one who have managed to do exactly like what you have been thinking all these while.
This was what happened last week.
The funny thing was that he was searching for me.
I was praying that the day will come some genius guy will develop the technique.
The moment we set and start talking we know very very well that we have quite similar passion about swiftlet farming.
He was more with the downstream while I was more on the upstream.
He keep telling me how many so called consultants he has met.
A couple now changed profession.
Many became cooks.
The only person who was still active is Pak Harry.
It was all due to his passion and the love of the industry.
While he did something unusual and managed to come out with the method to extract this so called glycoproteins.
The equipment cost was in the region of 4 million ringgit.
This will be the paradigm shift.
From now on swiftlet raw nests will no longer be for their soup but for their glycoproteins.
These extracts are tested and proven to have special effect on a number of chronic diseases.
One killer product is for the cure of cancer.
If this product is not the killer product there will be non that can make the swiftlet farming business a lucrative business.
I was told that the specific extract was used in a number of cancer stage 4 patients that are able to survive for 2.5 years after consuming the glycoprotein.
Every day there will be more discoveries on the use of swiftlet extracts and hopefully there will be more interesting use of it.
The day will come when the raw nests will no longer be a soup by for medicine manufacturing.
This will be a dream come true.
To those who own Bird houses, they should be very glad that every hour their BH produces those nests that are essential to human being.
