Golden Bird's Nest Malaysia

When we were kids, edible bird's nest sounded like a magical elixir, with trusted traditionalists championing the consumption of bird's nest soups to boost vitality, speed up healing, maintain youthfulness & enhance the complexion. But until recent years, bird's nest products often seemed elusive, in terms of both cost & availability. So it was a pleasure this month to sample the signature offering of Golden Bird's Nest, a new Malaysian purveyor of quality bird's nest beverages, delivered to your doorstep.

These are jars of pure, nourishing goodness, homemade with plenty of care, relying on double-boiled premium bird's nests, bottled fresh in small batches daily, free of preservatives, chemicals, bleaches, artificial flavours or colouring. You'll receive them chilled in a box, ready to drink. We liked them a lot - an ideal refreshment for eat-clean enthusiasts, buoyed by a smooth, delicate texture from the gelatinous strands of bird's nest & an uplifting natural sweetness from organic sugarcane extract. 

We'd happily sip on these tonics regularly even without the prized health benefits; rich in protein & calcium, these are great for kids & adults alike. Delivery is now available throughout peninsular Malaysia - contact Golden Bird's Nest at 6019-366-5555 for details. A box of six bottles costs RM180, while a dozen bottles are RM360. Our thanks to Golden Bird's Nest for the sampling.

  1. Everyone was rearing those birds all over at one time but it's not so hot anymore - prices and demand from China have gone down sharply, they say. Can't remember the reason.

    1. Suituapui.. it was due to the unscrupulous traders who mixed artificial coloring to the processed bird nest and claimed it as blood bird nest (fetch higher price). Rumors said that it was done by those from indonesia but nobody could be sure. At one time price dropped to less than RM1000 per kg for unprocessed ones. Now the price has gone up again more than 3-4 fold... those processed bird nest can easily get from RM9000-10000 per kg at those Chinese medicine hall.

  2. Judging from the look of the bottle, not much amount of bird nest inside the bottle. However good thing is that they use organic sugarcane extract.. for me it's just simple mixing bird nest with wild honey and eat it straight away.
    Or I could use pandan leaves and then rock sugar when I boiled my own bird nest...

    1. Leo: sounds like some good recipes there, especially with the wild honey! :) there's actually quite a lot of bird's nest in the jars, but i couldn't quite capture that in my pics. according to the producer, the ratio of bird's nest to water is 7 to 3 ;)
