During the post-Christmas cleanup I found a piece of the cardboard box from a rather dubious fruit mince pie in a “Christmas hamper.” The ingredients are:
Wheat flour, Fruit Mince 30% (Sugar, Dried Fruits 32% (Sultanas (Vegetable Oil from Soy), Citrus Peel (Sugar, Citrus Peel), Food Acid (330), Preservative (223)), Currants (Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil), Apple Pulp, Glucose Syrup, Humectant (320 ), Water, Thickeners (1442 , 440), Spice Extracts, Acidity Regulator (320 ), Colour (150c), Salt), Margerine (Vegetable Oils (Palm, Palmoleum, Soybean, Cotton Seed, Rice Bran, Sunflower, Sesame), Water, Salt, Emulsifiers (471, 435), Antioxidant (319 )), Shortening (Palmoleum, Rice Bran Oil, Sesame Oil), Vitamin A, Vitamin D), Sugar, Glucose Syrup, Egg, Milk Solids, Raising Agents (450, 500, Wheat Starch). MAY CONTAIN TRACES OF NUTS
Not surprisingly, it tasted revolting. It took a second bite to verify, then spat it out and threw the whole thing in the compost. I am impressed by the multiple levels of brackets in the paragraph, it starts to look like a lisp program!
