Takeaway meals colouring and saturated fat warning

Chinese and Indian takeaway food could contain illegally high levels of colourings, according to a local government study.

Chicken tikka masala and sweet and sour chicken meals from more than 200 takeaway restaurants across England and Wales were analysed.

Many were found to contain very high levels of saturated fat, salt and sugar, and 20% of nut-free versions still contained the allergen.
