Steissd, I think they don't know - they open them in a dark closet!

CENTURY EGG

This simple procedure adds value as well as extending the shelf life of duck eggs. Century eggs are a very popular traditional Chinese delicacy, served as an appetizer or as a condiment for some dishes.


WHAT IS A CENTURY EGG ?

Pidan (Chinese) or alkalized egg is a traditional Chinese delicacy made from either duck or chicken eggs. These are often called thousand-year or century-old eggs, even though the preserving process lasts only about 30 days. Eggs are soaked in a saline solution (for 15 days in summer or 20 days in winter). No boiling is needed. To check eggs for cracks, test according to the sound of eggs knocked gently against each other. Good eggs give off a higher pitch. Ammonia (NH3) is sometimes emitted, which has a pungent smell.

Ah, now I understand how does this refer to the gas mask. NH3 is not only pungent, it is toxic as well.

When we look at comparisons of where eggs are opened, I think it is immaterial after considering Balut and Pidan. Yuk and Toxic are good terms in my book also!

NH3? Surely. Not as toxic as Sarin(GB), Soman(GD), VX or other chemical warfare, but it is toxic. Being a strong reducer (in chemical terms, i.e., electron donor) ammonia affects oxygen transfer by hemoglobine. It also posesses strong irritative properties, and being an alkali in the water solutions it may cause lung edema in case of massive inhalation.
