Chinese Foods You Should Probably Avoid!

Horse sold as beef lasagna in Europe, Goat and Water Buffalo sold as hamburger in South Africa, but this takes the – well – Honey cake.

Chinese Foods You Should Probably Avoid!

Walmart which mainly sells goods from China and your local supermarket may be selling you foods from China that are a lot less digestible than advertised and may be a health hazard!

  1. HONEY: If you, like most people, buy your honey from a standard grocery store, you may be bummed to learn that Honey from China in the cute plastic bear is mostly not real honey. While there might be a few teaspoons of real honey in those bear-shaped bottles as a base, it's been diluted with high-fructose corn syrup along with other not-so-healthy fillers. “With 175,000 tons of honey imported per year, China is the world's second-largest importer of honey after the United States,”. Most fake honey (Corn Syrup) is brought from China (74%) and Turkey (14 out of 15).

  2. ICE CREAM SANDWICHES: Unlike traditional ice cream, which is made by churning a mixture of cream, sugar, and flavorings, Zhong Xue Gao the main ingredient in Walmarts Great Value Ice Cream Sandwiches is made by freezing a mixture of Butter cream, sugar, and stabilizers in a shallow pan. The reason why Zhong Xue Gao ice cream doesn't melt as quickly as traditional ice cream is because of its butter and binders. But I'm sure with all the sugar you won't even taste the Cellulose Gel, Cellulose Gum, Beaver pheromone gland derived Artificial Flavors, Mono- And Diglycerides, Carrageenan, Annatto Extract For Color, and Caramel Color. Note: The wording on the box states "Frozen Dairy Dessert" because most ice cream "looking" products are so far from being ice cream they're not legally allowed to call them ice cream!

  3. CHINESE FAKE SALMON: Something decidedly fishy is going on in China where the government has ruled that rainbow trout (Often dyed Tilapia) can be labelled and sold as salmon. Rainbow trout and steelhead are ray-finned fishes in the salmon family, and they are one of the top sport fish in North America but they are not as expensive as Atlantic or Pacific Salmon. There are definitely many serious concerns when it comes to seafood imported from China. Historically, they have been higher in unapproved anti-fungal medication used to keep fish alive in less than ideal conditions that foster parasites.

  4. FAKE RICE: Although SNOPES will tell you that Chinese Rice sold in many markets being plastic is a hoax, we can't tell you with absolute certainty something is not going on that warrants investigation, the last report was in October of 2023 and to date their are dozens of reports made annually and found globally from Nigeria to Thailand of the fake rice made from real food combined with resin! At home you can determine if there is contamination with plastic “grains” by vigorously stirring a small sample of the rice into a glass of water. If there is plastic it will float to the top.

  5. FAKE LAMB MEAT: Businesses in Qingdao, Shandong, have been caught marinating duck meat in goat or sheep urine to give the duck the smell and taste of lamb this is also done with pork. The meat is then sold as lamb to customers. In September of 2023 Zhangliang Spicy Hotpot, a renowned spicy hotpot chain in China, has apologized and vowed to take more measures after it was revealed that some of its "mutton rolls" actually contained pork and duck meat in one of its restaurants. This has been going on for over a decade in 2013 Sixty-three people were arrested for selling U.S.$1.6 million worth of fox, mink, rat, and other meat, doused in various chemicals, in Shanghai and Jiangsu province as lamb. None of the meat products used as ingredients had undergone inspection.

In Conclusion: China has begun a crackdown on the sales of fake, diseased and tainted meat products after a series of scandals that have further dented public confidence in the food industry, the official Xinhua news agency said. It said the State Council, China's cabinet, recently ordered local government departments to step up checks on meat and processed meat products, and carry out detailed inspections of rural factories, workshops and warehouses as well as private slaughterhouses. "The current water-injected meat, fake beef and mutton, dead livestock and other types of toxic and hazardous meat has aroused widespread concern," said the report.
