Hot...just paid £2.40 odd for the same amount in Asda.
Is this only in Scotland? I can't remember the last time I saw Irn Bru. Of all the Barrs products I've only seen Tizer of late.
Good value if you need it in cans.

£1 for a 2l bottle in Tesco is better value if you love it lots

Surprises me, considering it's the third best selling soft drink in the UK, after Coca-Cola and Pepsi.
Believe me. This is the ultimate hangover fix!
C'mon the bru
Shakey Mic

Ponceau 4R

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: [COLOR=#002bb8]navigation[/COLOR], [COLOR=#002bb8]search[/COLOR]
Ponceau 4R

Ponceau 4R (also known as Food Red 7, C.I. 16255, Cochineal Red A, New Coccine, Acid Red 18, SX purple) is a [COLOR=#002bb8]synthetic[/COLOR] colourant that may be added to foods to induce a colour change. It is denoted by [COLOR=#002bb8]E Number[/COLOR] E124, and has the capacity for inducing an [COLOR=#002bb8]allergic reaction[/COLOR]. Its chemical name is trisodium salt of 1-(4-sulpho-1-napthylazo)- 2-napthol- 6,8-disulphonic acid.
Ponceau 4R is a red [COLOR=#002bb8]azo dye[/COLOR] usually synthesized from [COLOR=#002bb8]coal tar[/COLOR] which can be used in a variety of food products.

    [*][COLOR=#002bb8]5 See also[/COLOR][/LIST]
    [[COLOR=#002bb8]edit[/COLOR]] Health effects

    Because it is an azo dye, it may elicit intolerance in people allergic to [COLOR=#002bb8]salicylates[/COLOR] ([COLOR=#002bb8]aspirin[/COLOR]). Additionally, it is a [COLOR=#002bb8]histamine[/COLOR] liberator, and may intensify symptoms of [COLOR=#002bb8]asthma[/COLOR].
    Ponceau 4R is considered [COLOR=#002bb8]carcinogenic[/COLOR] in some countries, including the [COLOR=#002bb8]USA[/COLOR], [COLOR=#002bb8]Norway[/COLOR], and [COLOR=#002bb8]Finland[/COLOR], and it is currently listed as a banned substance by the U.S. [COLOR=#002bb8]Food and Drug Administration[/COLOR] (FDA). [COLOR=#3366bb][1][/COLOR] Since 2000, the FDA has seized Chinese-produced [COLOR=#002bb8]haw flakes[/COLOR] (a fruit candy) on numerous occasions for containing Ponceau 4R.[COLOR=#3366bb][2][/COLOR]

    [[COLOR=#002bb8]edit[/COLOR]] Possible cause of hyperactivity

    On [COLOR=#002bb8]6 September[/COLOR] 2007, the British [COLOR=#002bb8]Food Standards Agency[/COLOR] revised advice on certain artificial food additives, including E124.
    Professor Jim Stevenson from Southampton University, and author of the report, said: "This has been a major study investigating an important area of research. The results suggest that consumption of certain mixtures of artificial food colours and sodium benzoate preservative are associated with increases in hyperactive behaviour in children.
    "However, parents should not think that simply taking these additives out of food will prevent hyperactive disorders. We know that many other influences are at work but this at least is one a child can avoid."
    The following additives were tested in the research:
    [*]Sunset yellow ([COLOR=#002bb8]E110[/COLOR]) (FD&C Yellow #6) - Colouring found in squashes
    [*]Carmoisine ([COLOR=#002bb8]E122[/COLOR]) - Red colouring in jellies
    [*]Tartrazine ([COLOR=#002bb8]E102[/COLOR]) (FD&C Yellow #5) - Yellow colouring
    [*]Ponceau 4R ([COLOR=#002bb8]E124[/COLOR]) - Red colouring
    [*]Sodium benzoate ([COLOR=#002bb8]E211[/COLOR]) - Preservative
    [*][COLOR=#002bb8]Quinoline yellow[/COLOR] (E104) - Food colouring
    [*]Allura red AC ([COLOR=#002bb8]E129[/COLOR]) (FD&C Red #40) - Orange / red food dye[COLOR=#002bb8][1][/COLOR][COLOR=#002bb8][2][/COLOR][COLOR=#002bb8][3][/COLOR][COLOR=#002bb8][4][/COLOR][COLOR=#002bb8][5][/COLOR][COLOR=#002bb8][6][/COLOR][/LIST]On [COLOR=#002bb8]10 April[/COLOR] 2008, the Foods Standard Agency called for a voluntary removal of the colours (but not sodium benzoate) by 2009.[COLOR=#002bb8][7][/COLOR] In addition, it recommended that there should be action to phase them out in food and drink in the European Union (EU) over a specified period.[COLOR=#002bb8][8][/COLOR]
    The EFSA (European Food Safety Agency) has found the results of the Southampton study to be ambiguous and inconclusive and recommends no changes to current EU regulations pending results of further well designed testing of colorants.[[COLOR=#002bb8]citation needed[/COLOR]]
    UK ministers have agreed that the six colourings will be phased out by 2009.[COLOR=#002bb8][9[/COLOR]

    Third best selling in Scotland maybe.

    Nope, it's the number one selling soft drink in Scotland :thumbsup:

    Your info only mentioned supermarket sales, where it has much more competition from smoothies, cordials, still drinks, etc... (a bit of marketing smoke and mirrors?? :whistling:)

    Overall, taking into account off-licences & newsagents, etc... it's no surprise it's the 3rd best selling soft drink in the UK. It's a pretty good mixer, and many people buy it from off-licences & pubs with their alcohol.
    good deal if you drink fizzy pop, alas I do not but voted hot
    Ye canny whack a tin o' Barr's Best!

    Great deal, voted hot
    At one point Scotland was the only country that sold Coke but where it wasn't the number one soft drink.

    I am Scottish and love irn bru but never drink it becasue of the sugar content.

    Third best selling in Scotland maybe.

    For supermarket sales:

    Top 10 Soft-drink brands
    Rank Brand Sales (£m) %
    2008 2007 change
    1 Diet Coke 215-220 220-225 -2
    2 Robinsons 210-215 200-205 5
    3 Pepsi 180-185 170-175 5
    4 Coca-Cola 175-180 175-180 0
    5 Tropicana 155-160 125-130 24

    7 Innocent 75-80 60-65 17

    9 Ribena 55-60 60-65 -10
    10 Capri-Sun 50-55 45-50 11

    If you consider coke/diet coke together as one, then only count drinks that are sold in 330ml metal cans then Irn Bru might be the highest next one somewhere in 11-20, so a bit of marketing smoke and mirrors and you have the 3rd best selling. But it's all hype and bull, and in fact outside Scotland it's nowhere.

    you can't deny it's nice though :P
