17 Foods You Can't Buy in Some Countries at Any Price

Every country has its customs and … a list of banned food ingredients. Yep. Things you can always find on the shelf of your local grocery store might be off limits somewhere else in the world. That’s not just a cultural phenomenon, but a matter of health and safety.

For example, in Europe and Great Britain, selling chicken treated with chlorine has been banned since 1997. Since 2010, chlorinated chicken has also been banned in Russia. Farmed salmon is banned from a list of countries, including Australia and New Zealand. Raw, or unpasteurized milk, is so common in Europe, especially in Austria and Switzerland, you can buy it from a vending machine there. However, it’s been banned in about half of the United States for the past thirty years. So you guys might want to reconsider your list the next time you go shopping.

  1. They use chewing gum to clean the streets in Singapore??? Ugh. This video helps present compelling evidence for why cancers are so prevalent in the US. Yes there are other factors but let's face it the tampered with food supply is a MAJOR factor and may well be the top factor.

  2. 1:00 No wonder my family & I don't eat poultry chicken/eggs because of it & allergic reactions(due to the vaccines & stuff)!

  3. I live in the Netherlands (Europe) and a halve of these products are just in the supermarket????, like apples

  4. I understand fresh Huitlacoche is banned in the US. This delicious mushroom which grows on corn is widely eaten in Mexico

  5. Who taught you how to count? You only show 16 items. If you check you will find that you forgot the number 14.

  6. Yes your right about chewing gum being banned in Singapore as someone who went to Singapore it's illegal to chew chewing gum as it is spitted out by anyone and if your spotted spitting chewing gum you'll get a hefty fine

  7. I refuse to eat margarine. Put a stick of margarine and a stick of butter in a box and introduce a bunch of houseflies. The flies will devour the butter, but ignore the margarine. If flies (which eat manure) won't eat it, than neither will I.

  8. Wheat about whole milk probiotic yogurt? Not a meat eater anymore thank goodness. Thanks.

  9. I am feeling so happy rn because I mostly eat home cooked veg food. Once in a while I eat something from outside but not any of the things mentioned in the video. ????

  10. Here in the US it is food production not farming. Many citizens fight for the right of corporations to poison us and keep our disastrous health care system. SMH

  11. Beans and rice together form a chain of amino acids with more proteins than a porterhouse steak. Eat them together. Cut out processed sugar. That is the most difficult to do. Highly addictive and in literally everything you buy. Do these things slowly. Sudden is bad for the body!

  12. As an Indian I didn't even know "foie gras" a French delicacy was banned, in India, I have never heard it's name but it's okay since 99% of the population doesn't even know its name

  13. HFCS, high fructose corn syrup, is poison and should be banned. As a vegetarian raised with natural food, I am an inveterate lable reader, looking out for certain animal ingredients, and stuff that's just bad for you. I especially look out for the ubiquitous HFCS and avoid it like the plague it is.
