Gotta Have My Oysters!

I remember the guy who used to sell seafood around our neighborhood in Davao City. Each time he passes by at our house i call him and ask him what he got for today. When he said he got ah oyster i dont hesitate to buy it and tell mom i want it and since i dont have my allowance from hubby. But One time mom told me she dont have enough money to buy it so i have to tell the guy if can get and pay it next time. I cant resist oyster!!

Anyways, there Three post-harvest treatment processes now in selling this Gulf oysters in the market. (1) individual quick-freezing (IQF), (2)low heat pasteurization or heat-cool pasteurization (HCP), and (3) high-hydrostatic pressure (HPP). They are trying their best to make us aware and well informed about how we can make our self far to be at risk regarding this oyster products. Each of the process has its own advantages to make the consumers more satisfied and in reducing risk to at-risk consumers.

So guys, be smart and cautiuos in eating oyster it is very healthy food but if you eat raw then you may be at risk!!
