A "curry" is a recipe not an ingredient, unless you mean curry powder in
which case they do.

I see what you mean, but these noodles are called "Curry Flavour".

On content list: Curry Flavour, Wheat Flour, Guar Gum, Zodium Benzoate,...
Nowhere does it say that it contains curry powder.

The word "Flavour" is often used that way, in contrast to "Flavoured with curry".

Curry power isn't an ingredient in itself, it's a blend of spices.

You really should see someone about your paranoia, though.

Of course Curry powder is a blend of spices, so why do they call it
"Curry Flavour", and not "Curry powder"?

Coming from someone like you with a vested interest in selling food products...
I didn't say that it was a hazard, only wondered why they didn't use real
curry powder in the first place ffs.

Chemists can produce all kinds of artificial flavours nowadays, also known as
'flavour enhancers'. These are often found in ready meals and deserts. I suspect
that the pennies are the real reason.



Apart from that, the noodle pot is very tasty.

Because 'real' curry powder is 'curry flavour'.
