Restaurants in China use gutter oils from sewers to cook food. Disgusting!

SHARE:

A recent scandal revealed that a number of restaurants in China use gutter oil scooped out from sewers to produce their food.

For years, China’s food industry has been involved in various scandals that one becomes scared and vigilant whenever faced with products from the said country. They have manufactured fake foods and contaminated items. But consumers cannot be so sure as to the safety of the items they buy because most of the products in the market today are from China.

This recent scandal from China will make your stomach roll so unless you have a strong resolve, we suggest you don’t read the next sentences.


Some restaurants in China use gutter oil sourced from liquids taken from sewers. You got that right. Oil used to cook food are from sewers. The act is so widespread that one out of every ten lower market meals consumed in China use this. With the help of undercover government officials, they were able to document several individuals scooping liquid directly from the sewers.


Vats of sewer-sourced liquid are sent to “refineries” to convert them to a cooking oil that are comparable to commercial-grade products in terms of color, scent and texture. Ordinary citizens cannot distinguish the gutter oil and safe cooking oil and that is alarming. Gutter oil is relatively cheaper than commercial-grade cooking oil and naturally, restaurant owners will go for the cheaper alternative to profit more at the expense of their customers.

Consuming this unsafe product could lead to insomnia, liver problems, indigestion, headaches and other complications. Tests of gutter oil samples reveal alarming levels of polycyclic aromatic carbons (PAHs) and other highly carcinogenic compounds. Traces of deadly chemicals, such as arsenic, are also found in the samples.


In this day and age, you really cannot determine whether a product is made from safe materials. Will you still trust products from this country knowing the dubious sources of their production?
