Notwithstanding the actions we must take in Operation Marmite, the Danes have managed to get the ban all wrong anyway.
On purely scientific grounds.
The Danish Veterinary and Food Administration has allegedly made the importation of Marmite illegal, apparently on the grounds that the yeast extract is fortified with vitamin B, and therefore doesn\’t meet strict safety guidelines.
Umm, what? Vitamin B?
And yes, it is B12 that it is enriched with.
Water soluble? And there\’s the rub.
It\’s a minor, but possible, worry that people will get too much/many of the fat soluble vitamins. For example, possible Vitamin A overdose is why you should never eat the liver of a carnivore (yes, people have died from eating bear liver, stranded arctic explorers and the like).
But with the water soluble vitamins it\’s near impossible to get an overdose: you\’ll piss it all away long before anything else happens.
So, foul, oppressive, Rotten State of Denmark and wrong with it to boot. I vote we bomb them.
