The E-mathics Of Mr Branson's Bacon Roll

On the way to Manchester yesterday, I forced my body to endure the metabolic insult of one of the Grinning Pullover's 'Premium Bacon Rolls'. In an entirely unscientific enquiry, I scanned the ingredients list & had my worst prejudices confirmed: there were more E numbers than Von Neuman, Fermat & Pythagoras could handle, even if they were working together & allowed to use slide rules. To be precise:
  • Emulsifier - E481
  • Emulsifier - E471
  • Preservative - E282
  • Treatment Agent - E300
  • Preservative - E250
  • Preservative - E252
  • Antioxidant - E316
  • Antioxidant - E316
  • Preservative - E250

That makes, by my calculations, a grand total of E 2,918. Is this a snack record?

E by gum. And two sorts of emulsifier!

I often call in. You just haven't noticed me as I just sit quietly at the back.
