Bird Nest
Bird's nest soup is a delicacy in Chinese cuisine. A few species of swiftlet, the cave swifts, are renowned for building the saliva nests used to produce the unique texture of this soup.

The edible bird's nests are among the most expensive animal products consumed by humans. The nests have been used in Chinese cooking for over 400 years, most often as bird's nest soup.

The Chinese name for bird's nest soup, "yàn wo", translates literally as "swallow's nest". When dissolved in water, the birds' nests have a gelatinous texture used for soup or sweet tong sui. It is mostly referred to as "yin wo" unless references are made to the salty or sweet soup in Chinese cuisine.

The most heavily harvested nests are from the Edible-nest Swiftlet or White-nest Swiftlet (Aerodramus fuciphagus) and the Black-nest Swiftlet (Aerodramus maximus).  The white nests and the "red blood" nests are supposedly rich in nutrients, which are traditionally believed to provide health benefits, such as aiding digestion, raising libido, improving the voice, alleviating asthma, improving focus, and an overall benefit to the immune system.

The 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 laminae cement. Both nests have high levels of calcium, iron, potassium, and magnesium.

Hong Kong and the United States are the largest importers of these nests.  In Hong Kong, a bowl of bird's nest soup would cost $30 USD to $100 USD.  A kilogram of white nest can cost up to $2,000 USD, and a kilogram of "red blood" nest can cost up to $10,000 USD. The white nests are commonly treated with a red pigment, but methods have been developed to determine an adulterated nest.
 
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 SE Asian shop-house ("ruko") These nesting houses are normally found in urban areas near the sea, since the birds have a propensity to flock in such places. This has become an extraordinary industry, mainly based on a series of towns in the Indonesian Province of North Sumatra, which have been completely transformed by the activity. From there the nests are mostly exported to Hong Kong, which has become the centre of the world trade, though most of the final consumers are from mainland China. It has been estimated that the products now account for 0.5% of the Indonesian GDP, equivalent to about a quarter of the country's fishing industry.
 
燕窝汤是中国菜的美味。少数种类的燕子,雨燕的洞穴,是著名的口水建设用于生产这种独特的质感汤巢。 可食用的燕窝是最昂贵的动物供人类食用的产品。巢已被用在中式烹饪,时间长达400年,最经常被视为燕窝汤。 

对于燕窝汤的中文名称,“燕禾”,直译为“燕子窝”翻译。当溶解于水,鸟的巢有凝胶状或甜的汤用彤穗。它主要是被称为“阴窝”,除非引用了咸或中式糖水。

最重的收获是从食用燕窝巢金丝燕或白巢燕(Aerodramus fuciphagus)和黑巢金丝燕(Aerodramus鲆)。白巢和“红血”巢据说营养,这是传统上认为提供诸如帮助消化,提高性欲的健康益处,丰富,完善的声音,减轻哮喘,改善重点,整体利益和免疫系统。

燕窝是建立在繁殖季节的超过35天期间男子金丝燕。他们采取粘在洞壁浅杯状。燕窝是由唾液椎板水泥织成。这两种燕窝有钙,铁,钾和镁高的水平。

香港和美国是这些巢的最大进口国。在香港,一个燕窝汤一碗的成本为30美元至100美元。阿白燕窝每公斤成本高达$ 2,000美元,以及“红血”鸟巢每公斤成本高达10000美元。白燕窝是常见的治疗有红色颜料,但已开发的方法来确定一个掺假巢。

以前的巢洞收获,主要是在婆罗洲的尼亚Gomantong和巨大的石灰岩洞穴。随着需求的升级,这些来源已经取代了目的,因为建房子的嵌套世纪90年代末,通常是钢筋混凝土结构继东南亚商店内部设计(“ruko”),这些房子通常筑巢在市区附近发现海,因为鸟类有一个这样的地方在羊群的倾向。这已成为不平凡的行业,主要是在印度尼西亚北苏门答腊省,已完全由乡镇系列活动转化为基础。从那里的燕窝主要出口到香港,这已成为世界贸易中心,虽然最终消费者是中国大陆最。据估计,现在的产品,印度尼西亚国内生产总值的0.5%左右,约相当于该国的捕鱼业的四分之一。
