In June, July, and August , the Shuguo Yanyi Restaurant in Beijing served raw Amazonian snail meat and, as a result, 70 diners were diagnosed with angiostrongylus meningitis. The snail meat contained Angiostrongylus cantonesis , "a parasite that harms people's nervous system" causing headaches, vomiting, stiff necks, and fevers.

However, the Beijing Municipal Office of Health prohibited restaurants from serving raw or half-cooked snails and disciplined the Shuguo Yanyi Restaurant.

When Japanese police and other prefectural authorities inspected the recalled dumplings, they found pesticides other than methamidophos, including dichlorvos and parathion.

Investigations jointly held by both the Chinese and Japanese governments cleared the Chinese company of responsibility after finding no traces of any poison in the raw material used nor in the factory. On August 5, , Japanese media revealed that some Chinese people who had eaten the recalled Chinese dumplings made by Tianyang Food had also become sick after the incident in Japan, in mid-June ; the cause was again found to have been methamidophos contamination.

The Yomiuri Shimbun reported that this incident has increased the suspicion of foods produced in China.

In October news emerged certain egg products produced by Hanwei Group were also contaminated with melamine. Tapioca pearls used for bubble tea were adulterated with macromolecular polymers to improve their texture. To improve the chewiness and texture of mantou steamed buns the pesticide dichlorvos was added. In addition, sulfur dioxide was used to whiten the buns to improve their physical appearance.

In September , according to JRJ [85] and Shanghaiist [86] six workshops near Xi'an, Shaanxi, have been shut down that produced fake beef by mixing pork with chemicals, such as paraffin wax and industrial salts.

They rose really well in the oven, but once i pulled them out, they went flat as a tack! Too flat to slice and put butter in. What did i do wrong? The rise comes from the eggs and baking powder. It might help to beat the eggs first before adding. Results can vary depending on elevation too.

I ended up using cheddar cheese since I was out of mozzarella. Thank you for the recipe! It is my second time making these in two days They are amazing! Perfect for sandwiches too. I followed the recipe to a T and everything was perfect.

I found I could still taste a hint of coconut so next time I will do more seasoning in the dough, maybe some cheddar too, but once you add toppings it not noticeable at all!

These will definitely be going into regular rotation, thank you! Love the idea of adding in some seasonings. And I bet topping off with a little cheese like asiago would be great too. This has become a must have staple in my house now!

Can you freeze them after you cook them? Does this dough thicken up to be able to form into 6 pieces? Mine are cooking right now, they looked great going in, smell great now, and have no doubt will be great. I made these this afternoon. I had such high hopes—they looked great after taking them out of the oven. One bite and I was very disappointed. All I could taste was baking powder—is the 2T really the correct measurement?

I even whisked the baking powder and coconut flour together to make sure they were well blended. I had the same experience. Attempted to make these with my boyfriend. They looked and smelled great coming out of the oven.

We were so excited to bite into one. So disappointed when we did. They were not edible due to the overwhelming metallic taste of the baking powder. What a waste of all that cheese!

I was wondering if the 2 Tablespoons was the correct measurement too. I use aluminum free baking powder or a combination of baking soda and cream of tartar. This bread is really good. I am new to Keto and was getting tired of eggs. It was quick and easy to make and taste delicious. But it did and this is by far the BEST bread recipe!!

Thank you so much for this! I made the almond flour ones recently, and they were pretty good but I wanted to try with coconut flour this time. I used the old recipe and it was a disaster!

It was soo dry. Now I see your recipe and your explanation that I used way too much coconut flour. These are absolutely delicious! We slice them, put 2 eggs, cheese and 3 slices of bacon on one bagel. We do Keto and it gives us enough fat for breakfast. I stopped eating bagels years ago because they would always plug me up.

Can I substitute raw cheddar for the mozzarella? Mine were too wide and flat. I think I rolled the ropes too long when forming the bagels, so they were too wide to start with. Also, perhaps a donut pan will help constrain the horizontal growth maybe. I found the taste too eggy so I might try substituting one flax egg in next time.

Texture was bready which is so wacky. That dough is so bizarre. Thank you for sharing, as I greatly prefer to work with coconut rather than almond if possible.

They are similar to flax eggs and I do think it would work with either. I did two psyllium eggs and one chicken egg. The psyllium was a disaster—turns there is no agreement on the internet as to how much water to use per tablespoon of psyllium. I used a recipe that called for only 2. It was too little.

It never fully mixed in. The psyllium cut the eggy taste and these were just great. Next time, though, the psyllium goes in with the coconut flour and the water goes in separate so we get an even blend.

I use them to cut back on eggs due to egg white sensitivity. I am trying it now and will report back! I think my eggs started cooking when I added them to the warm mozzarella, cream cheese and butter. Do we wait until the cheese cools before adding the beaten eggs? Sounds like you heated the cheese too long. I stir my eggs into the baking powder and coconut flour first because I get mine too hot sometimes.

I love this recipe too. This will be regular on my menu for…ever: I was not really sure about using coconut flour because it often leaves that coconutty flavour, which is good in some things but not what I wanted in a bagel.

This is excellent, and I will definitely be making it again and again. I might try forming rolls next time. Thank you for the recipe. I tried this tonight and the taste was pretty good. I read the comments and it was probably because I kneaded the dough too much. Not sure how to avoid that.

I used fat free mozzarella. Could that be the reason. I hope it works out for you. Coconut flour can be a little more difficult to work with. I may try thinning the batter with a bit more liquid to see if it helps with the dryness some have mentioned. I made these again today and they look great! Measured ingredients with a scale this time. The only thing I actually did differently was to throw in the butter with the cheese when melting.

The butter took forever to melt, but it still worked beautifully. Coconut flour to the rescue! I made these bagels today, and they are great!

I had a silicone donut pan so I made 12 bagels from this dough. I did add some Seasoning to half of them. Thanks, I really like them! Thanks for the recipe. I made these a couple days ago and they tasted great. Unfortunately they did not rise and turned out like flatbread.

This did not affect the taste, but I would prefer them to really turn out as a bagel so I can use them as buns. Planning on adding more baking powder the next time, but is there anything else that could make them rise? The right amount of baking powder is key along with NOT overworking the dough.

You also should get them in the oven pretty quickly. I loved these and the almond flour version. Thanks for the recipes! These were good, I have made them twice but for some reason mine did not rise correctly so I ended up with flat bagels. They were still good. Overworking the dough can result in flatter bagels. Also, a bit more baking powder may be needed. Trying my first batch now in oven. Have you ever tried to sweeten these up a little, say with a little Splenda?

Can I just say WOW!!! This might just be the key to my success. These were sooo easy and they are so good. My super picky hubby liked them as well. Thank you so much for this recipe! Thanks so much for writing in to let us know how they worked out. Yes, if too moist, definitely cook them a bit longer or add a little more coconut flour.

Quick question, do i need to store these in the fridge or can they be stored on the counter in a Ziploc? You can probably leave them out for a day or so, but I like to keep them in a zipper bag in the refrigerator.

I tried this recipe tonight and am so happy! Thank you for the wonderful recipe. I will be making this again. I kinda gasped when I saw the amount of baking powder and after reading through the comments I wanted to ask if a combo of baking powder and soda be used successfully in this recipe? You could try a combo, but I usually use one or the other. Be careful mixing baking soda and coconut flour.

They can react and turn the bread green! I use aluminum free baking powder I usually make my own from cream of tartar and baking soda so that may be why it never happens to me.

I ended up with fluffier bagels than i expected. I used benecol instead of butter so i added about 12tbs more and i added 2 tbs ground flax powder and 1 scoop of nutrim. They taste great and are super filling and just what i was looking for. I think i will experiment with adding some garlic powder in the mix and some sesame seeds on top next time. When im in a rush in the morning a put a scoop of my cinnamon protein powder in my coffee! Protein plus caffine punch: Serve topped w a little PB2 and some fresh berries…yum!!
