If you have noticed a change in the colour of your Mum-Mum's fret not, unless your baby no longer devours them and throws them on the floor like mine does, there is a new recipe which eliminates the sugar and salt and replaces those ingredients with pear juice.
I couldn't find any other information on the web which answered my questions about the colour change, so as per usual, I contacted the company and am posting my findings here. I inquired if the colour change I noticed in my packaging was due to the recipe change or overcooking.

If I wanted nutritious, I would not be feeding my child a Mum-Mum. I want a biscuit my child can use a stepping stone toward eating independence and to keep her occupied during a busy time of family feeding in our family of 5. The old and the new recipe both taste the same to me. I feel like the pear-juice version may dissolve a little less rapidly. Regardless, daughter #3 throws them on the floor. E.V.E.R.Y. T.I.M.E.
I have included email correspondence below. After boasting they are parent-trusted for 25 years, changing their recipe, after such a long time may make my wise-to-your-tricks baby, smarter.

The Mum-Mum website clearly indicates a new recipe, the packaging, I found, did not. If you are looking for original recipe, I have still found them, as of the date of this blog. Look for packages without the anniversary mark or flavours not using pear juice. PC Organics has a similar recipe but may contain the allergen of milk (and Mum-Mum's claim-to-fame is free of major allergens).
