"The sugar-fried chestnuts on the street look shiny, and feel like they have been waxed. How can normal chestnuts be so shiny?" Can there be additions? Here are four ways to distinguish them.
Take a look at the appearance. Stir-fried chestnuts in sugar with paraffin wax, the shells are bright and shiny and even reflective when they are first baked, but they will become white when they are cold. If the sugar-fried chestnuts are big, plump and light, you should pay special attention to it. It is most likely to be the effect of adding paraffin after soaking and swelling.
Second, feel the hand. Normal sugar-fried chestnuts, the participating sugar will remain on the chestnut shells after being caramelized, so it feels sticky to the touch. If paraffin wax is used, it will feel slippery to the touch. The sugar-fried chestnuts are rubbed by hand, the sugar and oil attached to them will be rubbed off, revealing the original appearance of the chestnut shell, and the sugar-fried chestnuts with paraffin wax will become brighter and brighter.
Three tastes. The normal sugar-fried chestnuts taste sweet and sweet, with a chestnut-flavored aftertaste. The saccharin added will be so sweet that there is no chestnut flavor and astringent.
