Charcoal In Food - a Step Too Far?

In recent months we can't help but notice all over social media the effect that activated charcoal has had on the food industry! For us, it came as quite a surprise as we usually use it in our underwear so the thought of eating it sounded a little odd but some of the items popping up on our Instagram feed have got us talking and we are intrigued to say the least! It seems the rainbow coloured, glittery 'unicorn' food that we all loved so much is slowly being replaced by a monochromatic look that's taking over the foodie world!

These are just a few of the crazy charcoal inspired recipes, whilst we can't vouch for the taste or claimed health benefits of the carbon we have to admit they look pretty cool! Would you tried any of these or would you rather give it a miss?

*Disclaimer* Please do not try to eat your Shreddies underwear, it's not going to taste the same.
