I LOVE perusing Asian markets because of all the interesting stuff, but I don't buy most of it because of sketchy ingredients (lots of MSG for instance). today I found some packs of salted duck eggs with no scary ingredients. Wikipedia seems to think they are okay

what do you guys think? are they worth a shot? they are fairly inexpensive at $2.99/half a dozen

I eat them sometimes, to me they taste ok, very salty though. Be warned though that the texture is nothing like regular eggs because of the salt bath they have had.

I buy them from an asian supermarket, but they are produced in the UK, so that's good too.

I have a mild egg allergy, and duck eggs cause no symptoms, and they are a great source of cholesterol for me. I get a lot of mucus in my throat after chicken eggs, but none from duck eggs, I hate that mucusy yucky feeling after eating chicken eggs.

I've tried them. My issues with them are two fold. First off... they are most definitely conventional eggs and much like Chinese dairy, the grain feed could have all sorts of awful stuff in it. Melamine was found in Chinese chicken eggs. Second, they're kind of gross; I love fermented food. I buy kimchee and all sorts of pickles from various asian stores whenever I can... if it's made in house. I just don't trust animal products from that part of the world. To each, his own though.

I tried these for the first time about a week ago. Like you, I read the ingredients and it seemed fine (duck eggs, salt). However, I thought they tasted ... really, really bad. Sorry. I'm Asian, and have had a lot of "weird" stuff, but I just did not like the taste. But, to each his own, you might love them. Give them a shot!
