Yen Sao (Bird Nest of Nha Trang)

A folk song says, "Bird's nest soup in Hon Noi, boiling duck's egg in Dinh Ba, dried deer's meat in Dien Khanh," says a folk song. This folk song has been preserved for future generations. The bird's nest soup from Nha Trang is high in nutrition, making it healthy and stimulating digestion. It also functions as a tranquilizer, prevents bleeding, and relieves coughs, among other things. Sick people, the elderly, and malnourished children can all benefit from bird's nest soup. The swallows build their spiral-shaped nest day by day. If the nests are taken, the birds will continue to construct them.


Because the nest resembles our ear, the swallow's nest is also known as the ear-shaped swallow in Nha Trang. The nests are referred to as "bird's nest" in both traditional and commercial medicine. During certain seasons, the nests are exploited. It takes three months for the birds to lay their eggs. The other is in July or August, when the birds are capable of flying on their own. Because we utilized logically, it creates a favorable environment for the development of birds. The bird's nest is round or oval in shape, curves, and is white or gray in color, with a hint of red. It is about the size of a half-egg, duck's measuring 7 centimeters long, 5 centimeters wide, and weighing 10 grams. It also contains a large bird's nest (18-20 grams) that was the initial nest of the bird; the size of the nest is lower the second or third time. The big nest is made by young birds, whereas the small one is built by adult birds, according to the notion.


The extracted nest is cleaned and separated into super excellent quality (red nest, white binding), making this nest extremely unusual (no more than 100 nests were found). The crimson nest, according to the expert, is generated by iron dioxide in the area where the birds build their nests. People claim that the strong power of the bird causes them to bleed as they build the nest. The second building, the white nest, contains transparent white that is large and thick, weighing 10-12 grams. It's at the top of the list. The opaque white, green, or yellow nest, weighing 9-10 grams, is sorted second. The nest that is gray, purple, or black is ranked third. In addition, in Vietnamese, there is a first-built nest and a second-built nest known as 'yen ba trau, yen mao.' The processed nest is cleaned by soaking it in fresh water for 3-4 hours or in boiled water for 30 minutes to an hour, then picking up the feathers and other debris. We soak till the nest is clean and thinly formed.


The Nha Trang bird's nest is high in protein (43–55 percent more than meat or fish), acid amine for humans, such as: cystein, phenylalamin, tyrosin, glucose, low fat, vitamin B, C, E, PP, natrium, iron, and phosphor, and vitamin B, C, E, PP, natrium, iron, and phosphor. Bird's nest, abalone, shark fin, bear hand, and other special foods are grouped in the special foods section. We use 6–12 grams of dried bird's nest every day for 7–10 days, and we also use it with other medicines. A valuable medicine is cooked bird's nest with chicken. Bird's nest, pigeon, rice, mushrooms, and other ingredients can be used. The green bean porridge can be made with bird's nest. People also process the swallow as the poisoned man's medicine.
