    I have seen this mentioned a few times on here but it isn't mentioned in the book.

    Are we allowed to have this?
    I'm asking because I suspect that the savoury drinks are mostly comprised of marigold vegetable powder because it looks and smells exactly the same and if so I'd rather use what I have in my cupboard instead of spending £6 on a few sachets.

    I used it throughout - much cheaper and nicer tasting. Use it alot now in RTM as we 'fry' our food in it rather than using oil. It is a wonderfully versatile invention!

    I use the Reduced salt version almost daily, I usually have one with a bar for lunch, I find it quite satisfying....

    If you check the ingredients and nutritional info on the savoury drink and the marigold they are exactly the same.
    I used it all the time too.
