The medicinal use of edible bird's nest can be traced back to the 17th century but maybe even earlier. In Hong Kong and in Chinese diaspora locations throughout the world, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is often used to treat diseases and enhance health. It is believed that TCM herbs have wide-ranging effects for enhancing health, lowering risk of diseases and promoting life. Being one of the TCMs, edible bird's nest is believed to have health enhancing effects such as anti-aging, growth promoting and immuno-enhancing properties. However, unlike other traditional medicine materials edible bird's nest is different from most of the TCMs. It is unique in that it is not only a medicine to make people healthy but also a pleasant food to be consumed and enjoyed. Traditionally, it is double boiled with rock sugar to make a delicacy known as "bird's nest soup". The gelatin drink that is served in small glass bottles also is processed with rock sugar and has a slightly sweet taste.
