Maggie Barry: Collagen soup.

Byline: Maggie Barry

WHEN I first saw purple carrots and green potatoes, I thought - yeuk.

And I have to say a similar phrase comes to mind at the thought of curry flavoured toothpaste and banana mayonnaise.

But apparently in Asia this is a growing trend where consumers are not quite so set in their taste buds - although I am at a loss why anyone would want to start off the day deliberately smelling of curry, but that may be my prejudice.

Mint has always seemed to me a far preferable aroma for the early morning bus.

Now, however, scientists have taken things a stage further and are developing beauty foods - like collagen soup.

I kid you not, collagen soup. It is quite one thing to consider jabbing the stuff in various parts of your body - but drink it?

If collagen plumps you out then surely soup made from the stuff must be glutinous and gloopy. And as for the colour....as I said - yeuk.
