Foods are usually restricted once an individual has a medical condition that may be affected by ingesting a certain food. In some cases, Banned Foods around the world are existing because some foods are violating certain provisions or the law itself of a country.
When you think about it, foods should be enjoyed by everyone, but there are times when the authorities think of the welfare of their constituents banning some foods that they think possess risks of dangers for them.
To give you an idea of what are the banned foods around the world here are the list also mentioned by Eat This Not That.

Chocolate is one of the sources of joy for kids. But did you know that this treatment is banned in the United States?

According to The Daily Meal, this food is more dangerous than wild salmon because of the chemicals and antibiotics that will give them an aesthetically appealing pink color. Eat This Not That adds that raising this fish encompasses a variety of environmental concerns to the Environmental Defense Fund, which is why Australia and New Zealand have banned the production and sale of this food.
In 2005, The New York Times reports that imports of beluga caviar and other beluga products from the Caspian Sea.
The Daily Meal adds that this was banned through the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) because countries with access to the seas where the food comes from cannot control the poaching.

According to Very Well Health, this oil is banned in the US since the 1960s. Eat This Not That explains that this compound is believed to be a carcinogen that is why it is banned in the country whihc is usually used in root beers.
