It has been over two weeks by the people of Indonesia fuss onion and garlic. Not a ideal story respecting a girl who abused her mother and her half brother, but this is about the price from two kinds of core spices that are almost always present in traditional Indonesian recipes. Garlic from Rp. 13,000, – to Rp. 15.000, – per kilogram, has now jumped to Rp. 60.000, – to Rp. 80.000, – a kilo. In fact, reportedly at NTT Rp. 160,000, -/kg! The prices were absurd. This time, a compact red onion with garlic. The price was hovering close to the price of garlic, around Rp. 40.000, – to Rp. 60.000, – per kilogram. In the after women could buy the onion and garlic in vegetable or retail shanties retailers in traditional markets reasonably priced 1000 – 2000 silver for a few cloves of garlic, now that much money can negative anything.
It was chaotic soaring food prices like crazy and not only this date it just happened in the land regarding this game. Late in 2012, we rave skyrocketing beef prices, which reached Rp. 80.000, – to Rp. 100.000, -per kilo, said the price of beef is the most expensive in the world. Imagine, in a number of European, American and Asian countries different than Indonesia, the punishment like beef is only Rp. 40.000, – Rp. 50.000, – per kilo. Veto wonder meat importers are willing to bribe to get their import quotas. Reportedly, import quotas in market for sale at a price like Rp. 5000, -/kg. Certainly not loss importers bribe silver 5000 if they can profit, Rp.40.000, – to Rp. 50.000, – per kilo of the purchase price in its home country. Domino effect of the soaring price of onions, peppers and tomato fruit prices are now serpentine up. Actually, the price regarding pepper rosette and unusual supply has common happened since the days of the New Order. In fact, the Indonesian people are generally doting of spicy dishes and chili is one supplement that is always there at the family dinner table Indonesia. Of course, fluctuations in the price of pepper and tomato big crush on the “health wallet” house wife.
Then, what is the impact for women? Any cook would need seasoning. If spice is expensive, obviously spending rose. However, if the quotidian cooking 2 kinds of vegetables plus side, we need at least 5-6 cloves of garlic and onion roughly 8-10 cloves. Not to mention the fried onions for topping dishes that smell stronger. Can-can, spice budget just a week increased by Rp. 20.000, – (assuming consumption like garlic and onions a quarter pounds a week). Not the price like money a little at all difficult times. That fresh budget calculations was the family kitchen. How about a big family? How did the eater owner who takes a day each kilo of garlic and onions? It could its wholesale budget increase to Rp. 75.000, – per day. Obviously this fantastic hike decay profit margins. In fact, they go looking for profit business objectives. Naturally, for the business that is a source of livelihoods. If the wholesale price of raw materials seasoning just has to make a loss, like course cooked food vendors will find ways to reduce losses.
Typically, raise prices is the last option. Food vendors also do nought want to defeat customers. Reduce portions or reduce the size of food pieces, it’s a common first step. That is, if the rising prices of raw materials of food, such as rice, beef, chicken meat, tofu, tempeh, etc.. But what if the rising price of spices (garlic-red chili peppers, tomatoes)? If flavor is reduced, the impact on the perfected dish taste less palatable. Thus, trophic vendors need to deflect brain. Solitary only buy spices are a little rotten. A TV show news, tips covering the onion traders to forecast the scarcity of contribute of garlic and consumer spending being down due to soaring prices. They sell garlic that has begunto rot, the condition has been peeled, garlic has browned and the contract was sold price Rp. 20,000, -/Kg. Fair behavior, a trader admitted per day, she can sell about 10 kilos. Buyers generally stall owner. Because they are the most expensive spice affected.
Another way is to replace the original spice garlic “imitation”. In the era concerning instant paced, different brands that claim instant smack composition complete, measuring fitting, suitable for all types of cooking, it’s all in one, do refusal need another extra seasoning, obtainable everywhere. Claims that sound to good to subsist true is more absurd if you see the price is relatively cheap. How could a spice concoction can be suitable for all recipes? More does not coerce sense anymore, he said the original raw materials of chicken, beef, various spices, but one sachet only appreciated 2000 – 4000 silver only. Nonetheless the cost of production packaging alone is how much?
Sources: Flavor (taste) substitution taste chicken, beef, etc. mixed anek chemical flavoring. Pay attention to the price, cheap is not it? That’s the price of instant seasoning “branded”.
In traditional or artisan who sold vegetables around, there are many brands of breath seasoning blends inaudible its brand, the packaging is similar to a popular brand in the ad TV, its logo and brand also made similar, of movement the price is cheaper. With a 1000 – 2000 argentine can buy one potpourri size. Typically, at a kiosk spice traders in traditional markets, such packaging spices also generally hung series food sellers / owners of food stalls to buy in large quantities. This is also one pressing issue seasoning budget fluctuations. At current prices soar as now spice, condiment instant chemical balance and low cost is a great play place.
Another trick beef trader. Rising beefprices, declining consumer makes a request for cozy their pockets unattainable. As a result, versatility meats sold out. Naturally merchants do not want to lose it? The event “Reports Investigation” on Trans TV broadcast climactic week beef tips miscreant traders. The meat was almost decomposed and bluish flies pretty sprinkled with borax and saltpeter, within instant change red color so verdure and springy back. Staying put into the refrigerator, ready to be sold again the next day. The price is cheaper than the normal price does not matter. Buyer large quantities certainly gratifying to get the meat “fresh” low prices. However when it was brought to the laboratory, the host like bacteria and germs in veal is far north the threshold, eventens of times more than the number of bacteria tolerated.
In a similar event a few months ago, running tips food traders get cheap eggs. They buy eggs broken / cracked eggs from the agent. Meanwhile loading and unloading of trucks eggsinevitable lot of broken eggs. Egg is what the agency eggs for sale cheap, only 500 silver each point. In fact, the shell was still in a state of dirty – sometimes wrapped in gutless dung – und so weiter if it broke, some cracks in the skin into the liquid egg. Then the egg cracked / broken was left at room temperature (not in the freezer). Flies were invaded, laying onit and 1-2 days within any breed maggots. In the footage surely shown how villain traders were still processing the eggs that have been maggot and bred, dharma throw grubs connective caterpillars. I look sick.
Indonesia’s most expensive beef in the world, because 200% of the average penalty concerning domain market Not to mention the impressions near the chicken that turned yellow spice turmeric marinade but not Riva*** – washing colloid / Compression injuries – so it looks bright yellow chicken. Episode of this show ever be discussed in Kaskus. Sartorial vegetable my subscription story, he had seen with his own eyes, how silken tofu known as the “know Bandung” usually chicken as saffron soaked, the rogue trader bright yellow tie-dye obtained from textile dye containing Rhodamine clear. It knows that the dye tekstill more durable than the water revel turmeric alongside water alone can fade. Of course, not all food vendors and stall owners to cheat like that. Those who honestly prefer to keep the hallmark of the food, of course with the consequences of raising the price. Naturally these traders who already have a loyal customer that is not affected by price increases and have a purchasing power that is not vulnerable. Buyers who are like this customarily can let be rising prices and quiet be versatile to redeem even if prices rise.
However, whether we have the ability to find which merchants are honest and that naughty? Investigative reporting event has been running for years amidst time running twice a week. At least in a year there are 100 episodes, with each episode they investigate the multiple merchants at once, depending on the theme of impressions that day. For years running, the show never run out of object coverage. The majority of provision vendors and children’s snacks. Meaning: there is always a naughty tips to outsmart expensive food. It has become “common formula” most of the food vendors. Starting from the class of roadside or in a traditional market, to the middle class.
Know that using turmeric yellow granules usually remaining turmeric and effluvium wafted. So what tricks it can serve healthy meals for the family? The best way is to cook yourself. Cooking itself remains the lowest pain to be paid, because the motive is not economic, besides rather is based on family affection. Indeed, a glance if wily on paper, seems to culinary itself feels expensive when there is an incremental in chilly material prices. But think about it logically: if the temple hold kitchen chosen day only took 5 cloves garlic, what about the food that day traders need a kilo of onions? It should rise in the price they bear greater. If they are able to sell food prices at a fixed price, in fact we need to raken suspicious. This price increase across Indonesia, all feel it. We jug be angry at the government incompetent to control prices and maintain the availability of food supplies.
But still preserve the price increase we must bear it? Thus, the more steep the price of food ingredients, subtract increasingly buying food outside. Cook himself, slightly reducing the spice that’s okay. Maybe it was a little uncomfortable, but clearly remain healthy. For the long term, healthy is much cheaper. Imagine, with a chemical flavor (flavor, MSG, penggurih / HVP) or with rotten garlic used food vendors, we let our beloved family members are so poisoned carcinogenic precursor of cancer. Chemicals that hoard in the corporeity if it continues will also bill brain tissue. Do not be easilyingested ad or swift noodle seasoning. Later, instant noodle brands that use children as stars ad, transport ads that birthright that noodle broth and seasonings secure safe drinking brewed up. In fact, clearly boiling water instant noodles was actually recommended to be discharged and seasoning of instant noodles in the box plane more dangerous when it reacts among water to boil. This is so trigger cancer, at least so that I’ve ever witnessed on television.
Commodity materials are often experiencing rising food prices fell sharply. Whole day, in a life increasingly crowded with a variety of pollutants we are exposed to various oxidants. Not to mention an unhealthy lifestyle and stress are vulnerable due to congestion and various issues. Never again coupled with exposure to eating unhealthy chemicals. Instead of buying instant seasoning, spice grinding genuine cheaper moreover healthier. Rather than reckon on the superior cuisine MSG (popularly known as MSG / michin), better replace it for a mixture of salt and sugar. One additional thing: do not get used children waste junk food aka junk food. In their estate country the food types that are otherwise unhealthy, here just a symbol of prestige and social class youth hangout. Occasionally just want to kill the taste, so-so eating junk cheer resto 3 months.
