Edible (and non-edible) flowers have been banned from being used in food at all Dubai cafes, according to authorities. 

A circular was issued to food vendors, that flowers, roses and petals are not to be used in any dishes or drinks, so no more pretty flowers for the 'Gram pics. 

The decision to ban flowers is based on research by the National Committee for Food Safet, according to Arabic daily Emarat Al Youm.

All outlets are required to comply with the ruling with immediate effect.
