What is Chicken Essence?
Boiled chicken soup has long been consumed as a traditional remedy and health supplement in countries all around Asia. In 1970, chicken essence became commercialised and readily available in the Taiwanese market for its ability to improve cognitive function Chicken Essence became readily available to people and consumption of Chicken Essence as a nutritional tonic rose in popularity. However, some find the taste of commercialised Chicken Essence pungent and are unable to stomach it.
Drip Chicken Essence – the evolution of Chicken Essence
In 2010, the Taiwanese market developed Drip Chicken Essence as an improvement from Chicken Essence. The preparation of Drip Chicken Essence plays a huge role in its quality. The age, gender and nutritional value of the chicken is considered during the selection of the ingredients. The chicken is double boiled after a thorough cleaning process to extract a bowl of pure essence. Drip Chicken Essence boasts a significant improvement in taste, like homemade chicken soup. Many people enjoy the rich taste of Drip Chicken Essence and its smooth texture. However, due to the process of preparation being tedious and time consuming, it is not as readily available as traditional Chicken Essence.
When to Consume Drip Chicken Essence
Despite its popularity, there are common misconceptions regarding the consumption period of Drip Chicken Essence for an expecting mother. Pregnant mothers are often encouraged by their parents and in-laws to consume Drip Chicken Essence every day before delivery. The high protein levels in Drip Chicken Essence will speed up the bone growth and baby development, which may cause complications for delivery. Pregnant mothers are advised to reduce drinking Drip Chicken Essence before delivery, and to drink more after delivery to assist their recovery.
