Have Vegemite, Marmite and other yeast extracts been banned in Denmark?
Background: I've heard this being claimed in the news, but there was a false report of it being banned in the United States back in 2006.

Denmark says the sale of Marmite or Vegemite haven't been banned.
It states that foods fortified with vitamins, minerals or other substances, such as the abovementioned foods, can't be marketed unless Denmark's food authorities approve the products. The products in question haven't had marketing approval requested.
It hasn't been banned, it simply needs to apply for a license to be able to be sold. Rice Crispies and other such fortified cereals have also had their license revoked, and have been asked to re-submit an application to be licensed for sale, due to the added minerals and bits and bobs.
Apparently, Marmite has been sold for ages without the correct license
Should this also state that they mean Marmite in england, as Aussie Marmite is different, with sugar and caramel added (for god knows what reason).
