11 Foods Banned Around the World


Food manufacturing is heavily regulated around the world, so much so that many governments do not allow many things. Occasionally, it is to ensure the safety of the buyers, and at other times, the reasons are quite strange. The Yankees continue to break the food rind that does not allow pass by several different nations but is wary of exotic cuisines from abroad. In contrast, several other countries have banned food additives and genetically-processed foods that the Yankees eat all the time.

We have gathered 11 of the weirdest and friendliest forbidden foods, and the reasons why you will not find them at the grocery store in specific locations. You will find that the n ° 2 is fantastic, but try to read the n ° 6 without worrying!

1. Haggis


Haggis is the Scottish national dish, however, its fundamental ingredient – sheep lung – has been not permissible in the USA. Haggis includes the lungs, liver, and heart of mutton, combined with onions, oatmeal, grease, and spices. The ingredients are all cooked together in the sheep’s stomach. The lungs of sheep are forbidden in the US because, sometimes, stomach acid or phlegm fucks deep in the lungs during slaughter. Even if this mistake is corrected by boiling the lungs before exploiting them to meet the needs, the USDA is useless in reversing the ban despite pressure from English politicians.

2. Chewing Gum


The American chew a lot of chewing gum, and this can be a problem if they do not dispose of it properly. There is not likely to be a public account in the territory where there are not at least one or two stamps in a hurry. It’s gross, but the marketing of gum is too useful to stop. In Singapore, despite everything, a nation famous for its cleanliness, they do not have it. Chewing gum was not allowed in 1992 to keep the streets free of sticky trash. The measure for violation of the ban is severe – see having to sell chewing gum in Singapore and a contredanse up to 2 years or a contredanse of $ 1,000.

3. Farm-raised Salmon


Salmon high in overcrowded farms is unhealthy because it is fed with unnatural thinning methods shielded from antibiotics and smaller carp still infected with toxins. The consumption of farmed salmon can cause damage to human eyesight and is even a known carcinogen. Unfortunately, almost all of the salmon in the US sector is high to the tense. An American nation – Washington – does not allow it. Farmed salmon is completely unauthorized on the Australian mainland and New Zealand.

4. Genetically Engineered Papaya


Genetically modified food is a controversial topic in many settings. Opponents are concerned that flaming with nature has the potential to have adverse effects on well-being, while their aficionados insist that genetically modified foods are better able to withstand harmful pathologies. The papaya cultivated in the USA is precisely controversial, with more than 3/5 of the latter changed to resist the malicious code of the ringspot. The European community does not allow the import of all genetically altered crops, but the Japanese archipelago and South Korea specifically avoid our papaya. The USA confirm that the change has wholly saved the papaya companies.

5. Ackee


The blockade on the fruit goes both ways. The USA may be in trouble to empty their papaya, but they do not agree to import from ackee, the national result of Jamaica. Ackee can be consumed safely, but necessary if it is ripened perfectly. Ackee immature includes high levels of hypoglycin A and B, toxins that can cause vomiting, coma, and even the deceased. Since the year 2000, it is possible to import a frozen ackee or guard from a select few builders, but the ackee fee is still not allowed.

6. Casu Marzu

Cheese is gross if you think about the preparation méthode, which involves aging milk for a very long time. Some cheeses are “blue” with mold, while others are made with an ingredient found in the stomach of nursing calves that are slaughtered to collect it.

One particular variety of cheese called casu marzu is too yucky for Americans to condemnation. Made in Sardinia, casu marzu is pecorino into which fly larva has been introduced. The caterpillar promotes advanced fermentation, and when the larvae hatch, they eat through the cheese to soften it. Folks then eat the cheese before the maggots die!

7. Beluga Caviar


Caviar has been for a while a sophisticated dish loved by those who have the biggest wallet of us. They are salted fish eggs, and there are multiple varieties of caviar arriving from different carp. The Beluga caviar is prized first of all other models for its soft structure and its horny gourmand. Beluga caviar is made from beluga sturgeon, a large fish that can weigh up to 2,000 structures and grow to over 20 feet in length. These carp can live up to 100 years and take 25 years to expect to lay their eggs. This means that its population can be quickly decimated; Beluga Sturgeon is now listed as Endangered Critically Endangered by the Endangered Species Act, and its function is outlawed to collect and sell it.

8. Foie Gras


There are several excesses in food manufacturing companies, especially when it comes to animals raised for meat. The foie gras, which means completely “foie gras,” is a great example. Palmipeds and geese are fed large amounts of grain through a feeding tube to swell their liver. It’s a short and shabby life for the birds. Worse still, only male birds are exploited for foie gras; the women are then inhumanly killed to be turned into food for men. The state of California does not allow foie gras, but it remains legal everywhere else in the USA.

9. Shark Fins

There are a lot of attacks of sharks against humans every year (on average 6), but you will be surprised to know that humans kill 100 million sharks every year. The shark fins are exploited to make soup, but this custom has considerably endangered the species.

In the US, at least three laws prohibit “having, paying, selling, transporting or trading shark fins or any product containing shark fins.” Unfortunately, the techniques of fishing in the shade especially cut square and after withering his body, continue today.

10. Artificial Food Dyes

Food dyes are ubiquitous in the changed foods produced in the United States. You will recognize them by their numbers, such as Red No. 40, Yellow No. 5 and Blue No. 1. The eyes are focused on fuel-based chemical equipment, which, according to scientists, would be likely to cause significant health problems, especially allergic responses, brain tumors, hyperactivity, and even cancer.

 The authorities of Austria, Finland, France, Norway, and Great Britain have by relevant does not allow these dyes. However, Yankee customers have great difficulty in avoiding them.

11. Meat With Ractopamine

Another common US food additive is ractopamine, which is introduced into livestock feeds to abrupt overweight or lean (depending on the dose). Scientists have found that it can generate tachycardia and other problematic cardiovascular effects in humans.

Ractopamine has been banned in the yolks, the European Union, the Russian territory and Taiwan. However, meat designers in the USA are not required to disclose whether they use it or not. Importantly, it is impossible for clients to know if they are eating ractopamine and Americans with known heart problems may be interested in not eating meat anymore.


Whether for health, ethical or delirious origins, many foods are banned in other nations of the world. The USA can be shaken about the ethical treatment of livestock, but they remain strongly in favor of chemical additives and genetically modified foods. It is simply necessary not to ask an American to break the crust of the sheep lung.
