I had never heard of Duncan Hines, saw a new product on the supermarket shelf, quickly scanned ingredients and was happy to see there appeared to be no dairy/milk products in the Devil's Food deliciously moist cake mix. I love chocolate cake but I don't eat animal products!!!!
At home i googled the emulsifiers as I know they can come from plant or animal. I had never seen emulsifier 541 before. GOOGLE it guys!!!
It is banned in Australia, made from aluminium, dangerous for babies and old people, linked to alzheimers, osteoporosis, parkinsons disease. The only reason I would email Woolies is to say get it off the shelf!!!!!! There are plenty of other cake mixes that will taste just as good and you won't be eating steel.
Duncan Hines does not seem a reliable/moral company given the product recall of cupcakes due to inappropriate labeling regarding traces of nuts (google it) and use of emulsifier 541. Remember when you buy products made in the USA you are exposing yourself and whoever else eats it to a completely foreign set of food safety standards.
AVOID DUNCAN HINES!!!!! We should not be allowed to sell this in Australia when ingredients don't comply with our food safety standards. I would be very suspicious of any of this company's products and labeling accuracy!!!!
