Marmite ban in Denmark not true

Marmite jar

You might love this news or hate it, but start spreading the news - Marmite has NOT been banned in Denmark.

Loads of news reports on Wednesday morning said that the yeast spread wasn't allowed to be sold there because it has added vitamins and minerals.

But the Danish government said it wasn't true that Marmite was banned.

It said any product with extra vitamins and minerals needed special approval to be sold in Denmark - and this hadn't been done for Marmite.

This means that even though it's not banned, it can't be sold in shops at this time - so if you're off to Denmark on holiday and Marmite's your favourite thing, better take some with you in your suitcase!
