ASN/TAS - Cooked Salt Duck Egg 6 PC
“Itlog na Maalat” is one of pinoys pride. From a word “Itlog” (tagalog) which means Egg, and “Maalat” (tagalog) which means salty, so “Itlog na Maalat” is a salted egg.
A salted duck egg is a Chinese preserved food product made by soaking duck eggs in brine, or packing each egg in damp, salted charcoal. Salted eggs sold in the Philippines undergo a similar curing process, with some variation in ingredients used. They are dyed red to distinguish them from fresh duck eggs.
Duck egg has a larger yolk than the chicken egg plus their shell is much tougher that gives them a longer shelf life.
