E- means EC (European communities) and E-Numbers are assigned to various food additives.Some E-Numbers are banned in some countries. In UK Numbers without E prefix are allowed butmay not be allowed in other country. We are getting lot of e-mails from our Muslims brother andsisters inquiring about Halal status of E-Numbers, so we decided to add to our web site. E-Numbers are divided into following category:E-Numbers Food Additives1.100-180 Colors2.200-252 Preservatives3.260-297 Acidities4.300-385 Antioxidant5.400-429 Thickeners6.430-499 Emulsifiers7.620-640 Flavor Enhance8.950-967 SweetenersHalal Status: The Halal status was given to the ingredients which are obtained from 100% Halalraw materials without use of alcohol. These are plant and chemical based material.Haram: Those are obtained from animal source or use of alcohol. All non-zabiha Halal animal by-products were considered as Haram because Allah’s name was not announced at the time of slaughtering the animal. Off course pork by product was considered 100% Haram. Some Muslimsmay differ with us about not accepting the meat slaughtered by people of the book as not Halalmeat.Mushbooh: Mushbooh status was given to those E-Numbers where source of raw material wasnot known, it could be from plant source or animal source and also lack of information of use of alcohol with based ingredients.Hidden ingredients: We have no knowledge of different food laws in different countries regardinghidden processing aid ingredients which may be Haram.HARAM E – NUMBERS:The following ingredients are considered as Haram:E 120: Cochineal (red color from insects) according to Ulema from UK and South Africa
E 441: GelatinE 542: Edible Bone PhosphateWe have carefully checked these ingredients based on our knowledge of US food industry but weare not familiar with different food laws in different European countries.
