Due to the level of completeness of amino acids per gram we recommend any consumers who have never consumed Edible Bird’s Nest, and have any form of food allergy, to consult a doctor prior to the consumption of Ciala Edible Bird’s Nest. This is because of the high variation and level of amino acids that make up the protein composition of Bird’s Nest, which sometimes may cause a food allergy response in some rare cases.
