with what you said as "only happens in very wet stored cooked cakes..."
would it be a safe indicator that your storage conditions are still acceptable if you dont find these bugs on your cakes? (meaning your storage environment is not wet?)
or are there other factors involved?
If your environment is kept in roughly around 50s-75% humidity, these buggy will not occur. Unless some of your bings are infected/contaminated already before your purchase. Most of these bugs are from the vendor/factory storage, which they kept it in a prolong humid level to speed up the value....
My poop pu was purchased as a sample or specimen. Once I owned it, it was vacuum sealed and reseal every time I share : P

I know its just my squeamish western sensibilities talking, but I'm really not interested in eating (or drinking) anything that has been pooped out by my fellow creatures. More for you all, I guess...
I haven't tried the uberexpensive kopi luwak, but I've had the Brazilian Jacu coffee, similarly processed by a bird. It was one of the best coffees I ever tried.
I'd suggest you steer clear of bird's nest soup. You'll never touch a tuo again.
The Jacu and kopi coffee is one of the best coffee I ever tasted, of course, beside the Blue Mountain Jamaican May harvest. BTW, good bird's nest is one of the most heavenly dessert, specially the 1st spring harvest, true ocean caves one from Indonesia which can cost up $250US per 7g.
