So, what is silk?

Silk is a natural protein fiber obtained from the cocoons of the silkworm, Bombyx mori. It has a lustrous, soft and smooth texture that is highly valued for its luxurious feel and appearance. Silk is versatile and can be used in a variety of applications, including textile production, skincare products, and even as a food ingredient. In cuisine, silk is often used to describe the delicate and silky texture of certain dishes, such as tofu, egg custards, and rice noodles. Its unique texture and subtle flavor make it a popular ingredient in many Asian dishes. Silk is also known for its health benefits, as it is rich in amino acids and antioxidants that promote healthy skin, hair, and nails.
