You love boiled eggs? Wait till you try a roasted herbal smoked wood egg! A South Korean company is ready to tickle the taste buds with eggs in a variety of flavours — though for a stiff price of Rs. 50 for two.
Herbal smoked wood egg, coffee egg, natural mushroom egg, red ginseng egg, and eggs baked in yellow ochre are a few of the flavours that are going to hit the Indian market in the near future.
“We extract the essence of products like mushroom and ginger and inject it without breaking the shell of the egg. Then we roast it for 48 hours at a temperature of 150 degrees Celsius,” said Park SangJune, the trade department manager of Egg Farms Co Ltd, who showcased the eggs at the ongoing India International Trade Fair.
“The best part is people can keep these roasted eggs for 60 days. They can even carry it with them while travelling,” Park said. “We are selling a two-egg pack for Rs.50 at the fair to get public response but finally the export price (for India) will be $1,” he said.
The eggs are completely free of infection and have secured quality certification from the US-based Food and Drug Administration.
