I am using these in cooking, ordered them online however notice they only have 61% of water chestnuts in them.
The balance is water and food acid.
I do not think there is a lot of choice, and probably they are all the same, and I am using these in cooking. There were several with brown marks over them which I threw out.
I bought these at Woolworths online for $1.70 for 230 g.
Summary A strange amount to package, these sliced water chestnuts are OK but nothing wonderful, and are again imported from China. They WERE however very good in my recipe of Chicken Balls with Lychees (see recipe yum)
