The Ansch *** lurks everywhere

Well, Marketing We had only recently, But one must still yet.

In my station to stand around all corners of vending machines: large and small, ancient and modern and medieval. The Star Trek Slot we had ever, But today is about the middle-aged. They're also pretty clunky and run under Windows XP. How do I know? Once the system seemed to have crashed. Normally, the screen shows any silly, grinning coffee cup, But that day was only the default interface of Windows XP, see. Unfortunately, I had no keyboard here…
The machine has it all, what you can imagine: cold and hot coffee, Maissuppe, Lemon-Ginger Shower, Cappuccino and what I know everything. In large pots. In small cups. You can set, how much sugar in your coffee is and how much coffee. Whether a lid on the cup, or should not. Whether one likes it rather lukewarm. All of this is image-rich on the screen illustrated. If you order a hot coffee, The procedure takes 45 Seconds (is counted down on a separate display). Meanwile a video, to show the, what is happening inside: Beans purely, grind, a powder of pure, nor a pure powder, hot water on it, whisk – beep, beep, beep! Ready! Für 150 Yen holds a hot one, Freshly ground and yet somehow after tasting drink instant coffee in the hands.

Strawberry milk with trace elements: Traces of strawberries!

For the little ones there is even “Ichigo milk”. Was, it falls short of the Japanese and / or French? Ichigo = Erdbeere. milk – with milk. Strawberry Milk. Really? You look closer. Aha, The drink is made with strawberries Amaou ®! Amaou ® invention is a diligent marketing experts and stands for Akai (red), MArui (about), Theokii (large) and Youmai = yummy. To be on the safe side, is clearly still there: Amaou ® is a registered trademark, and who can forget the ®, will forever burn in hell or have the whole agricultural organization on the heels of Japan, yes! Amaou ®-Erdbeeren (weia, almost forgot the ®) come from Fukuoka, are red, look like normal strawberries taste and after, hold fast to you!, Strawberries! In the supermarket they cost as much as… exactly, Strawberries!
Want a closer look at the label on the machine and looked almost dropped the coffee: In the strawberry milk, because it is clearly, are 0.3% Fruit juice! ZERO-POINT-THREE percent! Since one has to put into the right stuff!
Of course, I immediately see the process in my mind's eye: The apprentice is mixed in a huge tub of water with a little milk (perhaps from Fukushima!?) together and then calls the chemist in his corner smoking: “Sorcerer, The last ingredient!”. And since he is already, with the pipette, drips and drops of drops of Amaou ® soup in the tub. Another quick E120 (Carmine, understanding of real Kermes scale insects ™,) to, and finished the strawberry milk for the little ones!
I would have preferred, when there “does not contain fruit juice” would have been. 0.3%. Those are staggering 3 Grams to a liter! I can hardly imagine, that producers Amaou ® name for only 0.3% allowed to use. Determines there is an extra fee for using the trademark flowing. But what the heck – who is so stupid and read the fine print!

And the moral of the story: The food industry is of course not in Japan without. Only one is still much less sensitized than in Germany - most people do not care, what really happened. And that's probably better that way…

    In, because I had to make it right and at times clever:

    ADI‑Wert: 5 mg / kg body weight

    Cochineal is suspected, in susceptible people pseudo trigger allergic reactions. Especially, if an allergy to salicylic acid and its derivatives is, symptoms may occur on the skin or in the respiratory tract.

    The so-called salicylates found in aspirin (Acetylsalicylic acid) and naturally in pineapple, Oranges, Apricots, Strawberries, Grapefruit, Raspberries, Honey, Currants (red and black), Grapes and lemons. Even people, be sensitive to benzoic acid (It 210) respond, can pseudo allergic to E 120 respond.

    5 mg pro Kilogramm Koerpergewicht ….. so,and now the Quick Calculator / -thinker asked!!

    Hm, is a reason, that virtually all Japanese any allergy. Most often, the affected skin. It really is no wonder, if you bathe every day in the Chemiebruehe, which is offered as drinking water. This one uses no rueckfettenden Badezusaetze and shower gel almost always just a liquid soap without any ingredients is rueckfettende, makes it no better. Then with the extremely strong in detergents (because Kaltwaesche ..) laundered towel dry rub, purely in the chemical contaminated clothes and a nice dinner, almost always from most locations “processed food” and you're finally ready for an evening full of itching and scratching….

    We sell complete processing lines to Japanese food producers and what is there to be mixed together for things beyond belief.
    Silicone Gaskets, the factories in duetschen 5 Year hold, in Japan must all 6 Be replaced months, because they have been triggered by chemicals practically.

    Clear, great in even the most “healthy Drink” must indeed vitamins of 30 Oranges purely. Anyone who has had the stench of industrial vitamin C in the nose, is this Plaerre never drink again. Was, Vitamin C does not even come from oranges? Bwahaha! A medium-sized orange here costs 200 yen, the broth with “a daily ration of vitamin C, the 30 Orange corresponds” but only costs 100 yen. Was noticed?

    who wants to know everything already REALLY what's in their food?
    let's be honest NOBODY (ok but one probably a few) to if we knew what's inside of that stuff would no longer what we tag every day in us purely swallow Sun “well” had tasted the immoment does
    and we are pleased to not when we read that because there are fruits or colorful bildchen with fruit on the packaging? even if the real fruit content is virtually non-existent ^ ^
    why do we need to have real fruit if you just the content of a few tanks of chemical. factories can mix together and “fast” reached the same?

    at the end would help even that real fruit to stay healthy! that would be really too much of the good I see bankruptcies pharmaceutical companies due to healthy people.

    somehow reminds me of the Louis de Funès film breast or a leg ^ ^

    Thanks for the blog as always, has been fun to read it ^ ^

    Hello Matthias,
    I did not canvass now with my ISDN line thousands of blog articles, to find the right one for my little OT Thread, why am I writing a look inside here – to the great products of the food industry. ;-)

    Came a few days ago on the radio (Germany Radio?) contribute to arsenic in algae (and it was generally in food?). There was a study cited how much arsenic is still present in algae and that Japan would eat a lot of algae.

    Times a totally serious question ( ;-) ): How many “Algae dead” there's actually a year in Japan?

    The tenor of the article was about: So you should not worry, but perhaps best to avoid any products, containing algae or makes might. And it needs to be researched more.
    I have to say, I'm a big fan of this sharp Asian Reiscräckern, already from youth to. Containing, Depending on the variety, more or less a lot of algae ingredients, even if it is only a very thin skin around the seaweed crackers often. If I'm not mistaken algae are very healthy, because they contain many minerals (was not even mentioned in the post), u.a. probably potassium, what we in contemporary European food grown quite FEHT, because everything is prepared with normal rock salt, the practically only sodium chloride, So only sodium and chlorine, and a few other chemical ingredients like Rieselmittel, contains. In addition, arsenic itself is apparently even an essential(!), therefore essential for life, Mineral as I get through two different Wikipedia article from the year 2006 have experienced (“Mineral”, “Trace element”) – Arsenic is highlighted in the table elements as an essential element, even if it is not mentioned in the text.
    It e.g.. There rice in India with increased arsenic levels, I already knew. But this study I think is a product of the brand “Do generate revenue through fear”.

    Hi Robert,
    Dead algae? Klingt yes richtig outrageous :)
    And, I know… Britain had 2004 issued a warning – should the hands of the algae “hijiki” let, because the content of inorganic arsenic exceed the limits. The circulated in Japan. Arsenic is a trace element (in small dimensions, understood) ok, but it is meant arsenic in organic compounds.
    The warning was not taken into account, that “hijiki” anyway does not eat in large quantities, and you have not even considered the method of preparation: When cooking is probably the most out.
    That, therefore, be very hands of algae to, is absolute nonsense. Large Amounts, and “hijiki” be anyway (As far as I know) not processed in the crackers.
    If you eat a ton of them, You are more likely to be fatal to the iodine, because that is probably quite high concentrated. Because you would have but probably very, a lot of food, -every day.

    For completeness, here is an official statement from the authorities (in Japanese):
