What Am I? 21

Below I’ve listed the key chemicals or elements found in a commonly available  product, which may be slightly UK-centric.  I’ve drawn the chemical structures of principal components where simple and appropriate; given the E number or CAS number (however tempting Sigma-Aldrich catalogue numbers would be) if no simple chemical structure exists for an additive; and given the chemical formulae or name if neither of the above make sense.  See if you can guess what this is!  If no one gets it within 24 hours, I will post a clue.  If you guess on Twitter (@kjhaxton), please DM your guess so others can play.

  1. The large aromatic moiety is a variation of methyl blue, a dye used in biology. But, I haven’t been able to find this exact dye combination.

  2. The amino acid with phosphates on it as well is glyphosate, a herbicide.
