    According to EU regulations, Danish regulators are considering outlawing cinnamon rolls due to a naturally occurring toxin in cinnamon.

    Danish regulators are proposing to outlaw cinnamon rolls, or as they call them, “kanelsnegler.” The tasty treat calls Denmark home but new EU regulations restrict the public’s exposure to coumarin, a naturally occurring toxin found in cinnamon, because it’s been found to cause liver damage.  A survey showed that most of the country’s baked goods, like the cinnamon roll, were over the limit for coumarin.  The head of the Danish Baker’s Association said, “it’s the end of the cinnamon roll as we know it.”
