Bird Nest

Bird Nest

Edible bird's nests are bird nests created by edible-nest swiftlets, Indian swiftlets, and other  swiftlets  using solidified saliva, which are harvested for human consumption. They are particularly prized in Chinese culture due to their rarity, high nutritional value in nutrients such as protein, and rich flavor. It has been used in Chinese cooking for over 400 years, most often as bird's nest soup. Edible bird's nests are among the most expensive animal products consumed by humans. Indonesia is the largest bird's nest producer in Southeast Asia, followed by Malaysia and Thailand. The Philippines is the smallest producer.

Nesting House

Most nests are built during the breeding season by the male swiftlet over a period of 35 days. They take the shape of a shallow cup stuck to the cave wall. The nests are composed of interwoven strands of salivary cement. Both nests have high levels of calcium, iron, potassium, and magnesium. The nests were formerly harvested from caves, principally the enormous limestone caves at  Gomantong  and  Niah  in Borneo. With the escalation in demand these sources have been supplanted since the late- 1990s by purpose-built nesting houses, usually reinforced concrete structures following the design of the Southeast Asian shop-house ("rumah toko"/"ruko").
