Many food products have been banned in India, and this movement is getting more significant. With so much attention centred on this, it is pretty simple to ignore that they also condemn in different world sections. However, do you know that some of the everyday things around us are banned products in other nations? Check out four food products that are outlawed abroad but are used in India. 

Chewing gum

Singapore is one of the hyper-clean and hyper strict countries in Asia's continent. Do you know that Singapore is also known worldwide for its food laws? For example, there is a ban on eating chewing gum here. Although chewing gum is available in grocery shops, you can buy it only when the doctor prescribes it. The Singapore government believes that people spit on the road after eating chewing gum, causing pollution. Hence, the Singapore government banned it. 


French fries are incomplete without ketchup. But do you know one surprising thing? This favourite French dish cannot be eaten with ketchup in France itself. Mainly in French schools, ketchup has been banned because only traditional French cuisines are promoted here. But, at the same time, ketchup is also served with French fries in hotels and cafes in France. 


Do you know how much people eat samosas in India? Samosa is everyone's favourite evening snack. However, samosa is banned in the Muslim country Somalia. This is because it is triangle shaped, and the people here consider the triangle shape a symbol of Christianity. That's why the government has banned samosas in the country. 

Macaroni and Cheese

Have you ever heard that a food item is banned just because of its colour? You would be surprised to listen to this! But in Norway and Austria, all things with food colour number 6, i.e. yellow, are forbidden, including macaroni and cheese. So yes, yellow food items are not considered suitable for children in Norway and Austria.
