Samosa to Ghee: These foods are banned?

While there are some foods that are unique to a country or region, there are also some foods that are surprisingly forbidden in some countries. A country's food contains a lot of information about its history, traditions, culture, and people. If you dig a little further, foods vary from place to place depending on climate, population, socioeconomic or environmental factors. While there are certain foods that are unique to a country or region, there are also some foods that are surprisingly banned in some countries. Can you believe that some foods that are loved by all people in our country are banned in different countries?

Here are some of them:
Samosa: This is a very popular snack in india but samosa in the southern African region has been banned from this delicacy since 2011. What is so taboo about samosas? The reason is a bit surprising. The triangular shape of the samosa appears to be a symbol of christianity for a group called 'Al Shabaab'. So it is banned. In fact, according to the law of the land, violating this law can lead to severe punishment.
Chyawanprash: people in india have been consuming Chyawanprash for a long time. It is said to be packed with healthy nutrients that nourish us from the inside out. But canada banned this food in 2005. The product was banned due to high levels of lead and mercury.
Ghee: The benefits of ghee need no introduction. In india, ghee is considered a superfood that contains all the essential nutrients our body needs. But it is a banned product in the US because ghee has been found to cause diseases like high blood pressure, heart attack, and obesity. So can we just eat cheese? If you ask me...
Ketchup: Ketchup adds flavor to a variety of savory dishes. We pair ketchup with almost everything, from samosas and baguettes to noodles and sandwiches. But in France, it is banned. The French government has banned ketchup after the government noticed an excess of junk food among teenagers.
Bubblegum: singapore is famous for its cleanliness and has strict rules for it. That is why, in 1992, the country restricted the use, distribution, and trade of all forms of bubble gum. However, due to international pressure, the country, in 2004, allowed only the bubblegum variety for medicinal purposes.
