Spreading incorrect information about Islam to other muslims is absolutely wrong and strict punishments from Allah Almighty await those who do so!!! This message is for the same purpose.
I'm getting ALOT of messages on my email regarging enumber ingredients. Same is the case with this forum. Muslims are spreading incorrect information about stuff with enumber ingredients.
Being a student of post gradute studies in Biological Sciences, I ALWAYS search everything before passing the info on. My internet search has led me to the conclusion that "all enumber ingredients are NOT HARAAM". Some of them are, like e631 disodium inosinate etc as they are extracted from pig fats. A famous webiste wiki answers also confirms e631 to be haraam. But please notify that natural occuring food, that is clearly being declared as 'halal' by the Prophet SAWW himself also contains enumber ingredients. I'm copying a list of enumbers on this page. Please take a look.
E440 Pectins (i) pectin (ii) amidated pectin
E330 Citric acid
E331 Sodium citrates (i) Monosodium citrate (ii) Disodium citrate (iii) Trisodium citrate
E332 Potassium citrates (i) Monopotassium citrate (ii) Tripotassium citrate
E333 Calcium citrates (i) Monocalcium citrate (ii) Dicalcium citrate (iii) Tricalcium citrate
E380 Triammonium citrate
E472c Citric acid esters of mono- and diglycerides of fatty acids
E1505 Triethyl citrate
e440 pectin is present in almost ALL leafy vegetables. Are all leafy vegetables haraam??? I
e330 Citric Acid is present in lemon and in many of the fruits with taste somewhat close to lemon? Is lemon and related fruits like strswberries haraam???
Same is the case with other citrates. I'm not sure about e1505, coz I haven't personally studied about it so far, so I won't lay me verdict for it to avoid spreding incorrect info.
There is a list of ingredients with e numbers wwhichg are not haraam at all. I would request ALL muslims FOR GOD's SAKE, PLEASE stop spreading incorrect information. It'll add bad things to your delusche' book, which will be shown to Allah after your death, resulting in SERIOUS punishments. Please confirm your messages before you forward them to others.
