‘Balut’ to cost more in Philippines

CITY OF MALOLOS – Expect prices of the popular street food “balut” (boiled duck egg) to increase after Agriculture Secretary Manny Piñol lifted restrictions on the transport of duck eggs from Luzon due to the bird flu outbreak.

One of the conditions imposed for transporting balut was for producers to first cook the eggs that would limit the volume that could be bought, said Ike Illescas, a duck raiser and producer from San Ildefonso town in Bulacan province.
