Why Pig Fat is not mentioned but code(s) are printed??

Update: I added another entry about E codes/numbers. See More about E numbers from VRG
Update: Faraj left a insightful comment to this entry in which he pointed to this article: http://www.vegsoc.org/info/enumbers.html.Thank you Faraj

Here is the most pertinent part in case you are in a hurry:

So, I request all MUSLIMS or non pork [meat] eaters to check the ingredients of the ITEMS of daily use and match it with the following list of E-CODES. If any of the ingredients listed below is found, try to avoid it, as it has got PIG FAT;

PIG FAT By Dr. M. Amjad Khan

In nearly all the western countries including Europe, the PRIMARY choice for meat is PIG. There are a lot of farms in these countries to breed this animal. In France alone, Pig Farms account for more than 42,000.

PIGS have the highest quantity of FAT in their body than any other animal. But Europeans and Americans try to avoid fats.

Thus, where does the FAT from these PIGS go? All pigs are cut in slaughter houses under the control of the department of food and it was the headache of the department of food to dispose of the fat removed from these pigs.

Formerly, it was burnt (about 60 years ago). Then they thought of utilizing it. First, they experimented it in the making of SOAPS and it worked.

Then, a full network was formed and this FAT was chemically Processed, Packed and Marketed, while the other manufacturing companies bought it. In the meantime, all European States made it a rule that every Food, Medical and Personal Hygiene product should have the ingredients listed on its cover. So, this ingredient was listed as PIG FAT.

Those who are living in Europe for the past 40 years know about this. But, these products came under a ban by the ISLAMIC COUNTRIES at that time, which resulted in a trade deficit.

Going back in time, if you are somehow related to South East Asia, you might know about the provoking factors of the 1857 CIVIL WAR. At that time, Rifle Bullets were made in Europe and transported to the sub-continent through the Sea.It took months to reach there and the gun powder in it was ruined due to the exposure to sea.

Then, they got the idea of coating the Bullets with fat, which was PIG FAT. The fat layer had to be scratched by teeth before using them. When the word spread, the soldiers, mostly Muslim and some Vegetarians, refused to fight.Which eventually lead to the Civil War. The Europeans recognized these facts, and instead of writing PIG FAT, they started writing ANIMAL FAT.All those living in Europe since 1970′s know this fact. When the companies were asked by authorities from the MUSLIM COUNTRIES, what animal fat is it, they were told it was COW and SHEEP Fat. Here again a question raised, if it was COW or SHEEP Fat, still it is HARAAM to MUSLIMS, as these animal were not SLAUGHTERED as per the ISLAMIC LAW. Thus, they were again banned.
Now, these multinational companies were again facing a severe drought of money as 75% of their income comes from selling their goods to Muslim Countries, and these earn BILLIONS OF DOLLARS of Profit from their exports to the MUSLIM WORLD.

Finally they decided to start a coding language, so that only their Departments of Food Administration should know what they are using, and the common man is left lurking in the dark.Thus, they started E-CODES. These E- INGREDIENTS are present in a majority of products of multinational firms including, but not limited to -

TOOTH PASTE,
SHAVING CREAM
CHEWING GUM,
CHOCOLATE,
SWEETS,
BISCUITS,
CORN FLAKES, TOFFEES,
CANNED FOODS,
FRUIT TINS,

Some medication Multi-vitamins Since these goods are being used in all MUSLIM Countries indiscrimately, our society is facing problems like shamelessness, rudeness and sexual promiscuity.

So, I request all MUSLIMS or non pork [meat] eaters to check the ingredients of the ITEMS of daily use and match it with the following list of E-CODES. If any of the ingredients listed below is found, try to avoid it, as it has got PIG FAT;

E100, E110, E120, E 140, E141, E153, E210, E213, E214, E216, E234, E252,E270, E280, E325, E326, E327, E334, E335, E336, E337, E422, E430, E431, E432, E433, E434, E435, E436, E440, E470, E471, E472, E473, E474, E475,E476, E477, E478, E481, E482, E483, E491, E492, E493, E494, E495, E542,E570, E572, E631, E635, E904.

  1. Asalaam Alaikum,
    Dear brother, I did a small search on the internet and found E476 is made from Lecithin and Soya. Lecithin is extrated from oil. It is ment to be fat burner. I am confused it can associated with fat(pig).

    Please if you have evidence rather than hearsay I am father of 2, I do not want to give misleading info to kids. They are intelligent enough to go to website themself and find a contradictory answer. Which would result in they would no longer trust the information I would give to them.

    If you can help, I would be greatful.
    thanks
    Wa Alaikum Asalaam

    • Thanks Brother for ur kind research for All Muslims, May Allah prosper u and give happiness in all ur life. u gave an important information, Non Muslims r making fool and giving a food which is prohibited by Allah The Almighty. Inshallah they will be ruined.

      • not all NON-MUSLIM produce HARAM FOOD OR PRODUCTS OK!!! DON’T BE TOO SHORT MINDED!!! There are Christian who DID NOT EAT PIG

  3. Asalamu aliekum,
    shukraan for this useful information may Allah guide us all and help us be more aware of what we eat and what hidden items are in our foods.Jazak Allah khair wa aliekum asalam.

  4. Assalamo Alaikum Brother:

    Indeed, it is very informative and important for the muslim ummah, especially for those who are living in western society.

    Could you please inquire about the U and K encircled on the products. If, I find it on any product with U or K means Kosher then I don’t have to look at the ingredients.It is understood that it is Halal.

    My question is about the E-Code, If It says U or K still do I have to look at the E-Code or not?

    Jazak Allah Khair

    Wassalaam.

    • Please do not assume that just because a product has a U or K on it means that we can accept it blindly. there was a report several years ago that Jello was using pork gelatine so a rabbi went to verify this as the box has a K for kosher. After going through the whole plant he felt that the product had changed so much that it was no longer pork…

      go figure that one.

      for those of us who live in Arab countries where it is written on the little white sticker in Arabic– I still try to stay away from gelatin as I do not trust the information gained or given from such agencies. For example there was an article in Readers Digest about marshmallows and that no company in the states uses other than pork gelatin. Only during Hanukkah one Jewish company manufactures them. So when you real the label in the future questions twice if it says beef or vegetable gelatin.

  5. assalamu alaikam,
    thank you for the information

  6. Salam to all,

    Dear researchers, I ‘ve come to know by one of my brothers that some of the codes are not related to fat at first place. For instnce, E100, E110
    E270, E280
    E210, E213, E214, E216
    E334, E335, E336, E337
    E440
    E493.
    I’ll really appreciate if someone gives me the explanation.

    • I request all MUSLIMS or non pork eaters to check the ingredients of the ITEMS of daily use and match it with the following list of E-CODES that i sending you If any of the ingredients listed is found, try to avoid it, as it has got PIG FAT;

  7. [...] about E numbers from VRG In an earlier entry, I quoted an email I received about pig fat and e numbers. A lot of people expressed interest in [...]

  8. I’m confuse, but apart from china, america and europe have the highest number of pigs and they consume their meat most often and hence abstain from taking the fat due to heart related diseases. My question is what do they do with the fat?

    • thnx and i realy happy to see the information of daily use and pig fat codes sir i request u for easy to note all the food use daily will check and full name give it for easy e.g lays ding dong etc

  9. Esselam Aleiqum;
    We appreciate your effort,these information is not easy to get it. Now we are living in Europe and European food industry is more complicated than Usa.

    (:-:)

    This Islamic Site has E-Code listing. Check it out

    http://www.guidedways.com/halalfoodguide.php#

  14. Dr. Amjad has misleading us. He said that E110 food color is HARAM while the truth is that E110 is HALAL food color. Read this answer:

    http://www.muftisays.com/qa.php?viewpage=viewQA&question=3549

    E110 is present in an Orange candy manufactured by Mayfair (Factory address: Asian Food Industries,46-49 Industrial Area, Gulberg III, Lahore, PAKISTAN).

    • Brother, Dr Amjad is not misleading us. What he said is true. Probably you have very limited knowledge of these things and don’t understand it. How much E110 can you get from an orange. The comapanies (e.g. Lays’s chips) are misleading our ignorant Muslims in Pakistan and elsewhere in the wolrd. Brother, if you are a Muslim, don’t criticise one like this. Vegetable E-ingrdients are very expensive and the money lovers of multinational companies are not going to look at Haram or Halal. They will always provide you false and misleading information with the support of the corrupt system of Pakistan and suck your blood and eat your flash. Be thankful to the scholars if they give you info. May Allah grant you and me and all of us the strength to understand Islaam and our obligations- Aameen!

  15. Just wanted to comment on the most recent comment from Usman Afzal.

    I encourage everybody to do their own research and not take Dr. Amjad’s word for it.

    That said, I want to give a little more context on the ingredient problems. Lot of time same ingredients coming from Muslim are not Haram while coming from a non-Muslim country can be problematic. An example is gelatin. Gelatin comes from the bones of animals which in the case of Muslim countries comes from islamically slaughtered halal animals. Gelatin from non-muslim countries is a problem as it most probably comes from improperly slaughtered and haraam animals.

    Same thing is true for a lot of ingredients, so source of ingredient does matter. I usually don’t investigate further on ingredients if the product is imported from a Muslim country like Malaysia, Pakistan or Indonesia. Sometimes they even have the Halal sign/symbol on it too.

    • Salam, brother, i’m from Malaysia. Please don’t take Malaysian product 100% halal guaranteed. MOST factory here is belong to non Muslim, unless the Halal logo is certified by the government of Malaysia (sometimes non Muslim even cheat on certification) same goes to Indonesia. yet, there are so many junk food printed the fake halal logo on their products. I only buy food that is manufactured by the large well known companies because those non muslim they don’t bother ’bout us….

  16. Aslam-e-likum brothers and sisters
    someone one has asked me about 435,471,322 is halal i was not sure but when i was looking on the internet i found this website and i had question in my mind.if all the numbers are listed on this websit are not halal then these numbers are mainlly in all the products you can not find anything whith out this if its not halal then i think they sould not be making this products at all. what will happen on the jugement day when god will ask us you knew about this products and still you were eating and giving your childern we can understand this things but what about our kids who want to have biscuit lolly cakes for there birthday or eat bread it;s not there misstake it will be made by us i think the australian food autherity do need to take note on this and they should stop making this knid off products or take this numbers off ingredients out off the mix befor they pack it to suply it to other stores i have on bussiens i didn’t knew before but since i have found out this i realy fell sorry for those who allready have taken productes from my store i hope Allh can forgive me and those how aer inosent.please pray for me from Allah.
    if someone can answere me my Email address is itfcm@hotmail.com
    thank you
    ALLAH HAFIZ

  17. DR Amjad is on a propaganda warfare against some multinationals and misleading us all… better research on your own to find the truth…

    sources http://www.eufic.org

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E_number

  18. I want to know E110 is HALAL or HARAAM, I found E110 in RASNA, TANG and other artificial products.

  19. I want to know E110 is HALAL or HARAAM, I found E110 in RASNA, TANG and other artificial products.

    • salam brothers,

      i would like to know if e621 or e627 iss halal or haramm

      • salam brothers,

        I would like to know if E621,E627 & E160b is halal or haramm.

  20. E 110 is a Color here are the details

    Sunset Yellow FCF (also known as Orange Yellow S, FD&C Yellow 6 or C.I. 15985) is a colourant that may be added to foods to induce a colour change. It is denoted by E Number E110, and has the capacity for inducing an allergic reaction.

    Sunset Yellow is a sulfonated version of Sudan I, a possible carcinogen, which is frequently present in it as an impurity. Sunset Yellow itself may be responsible for causing an allergic reaction in people with an aspirin intolerance,[1] resulting in various symptoms including gastric upset, diarrhoea, vomiting, nettle rash (urticaria) and swelling of the skin (angioedema).[2] The colouring has also been linked to hyperactivity in young children.[3] As a result of these problems, there have been repeated calls for the total withdrawal of Sunset Yellow from food use.

  21. We should avoid the products containing the prohibited E codes. If we have a doubt about the authencity of the information in such websites, we should refer to the ahadith where are Prophet (PBUH) has instructed us to avoid doubtful actions. In one hadith he (PBUH) has compared a person who does doubtful actions to a shepherd who grazes his sheep close to the royal ranches. What is meant by this hadith is that the sheep may unknowingly rush into the kings ranches earmarked for the royal horses etc and the king shall punish the shepherd for being careless.

  22. Asalam-o-Aliakum
    i’ve come to know about the E codes through a sms on my cell and than I search for this site. I’m really thank full to Dr Amjad who inform us about haram which we are taking in our daily food items and for sure this is really informative. I dont ask uoy to believe but go for yuor own search but i think Europe is definitily using Pig fats in their produts.I just want to say just avoid those item for which you are noyt sure. allah Hafiz

    • Jazakallah

  23. Every doubtful ingredient should be prohibited

  24. I Want a better prove thal lays contain pigs fat

    • I want a better proof to forbid my friends to eat Lays as it contain E621,E627 and E160b,

      Thanks & best regards

      • The technique used for the preparation of the flavour enhancer for Lays chips is the same as for the preparation of Alcohol, which is Haram. An example: let’s make a chocolate cake. Prepare every thing as in the recipe of a cake and add 100 ml of urine to the cake. Put it in the oven to cook. After cooking, we believe that the water content including the urine added was evaporated and the cake will be cooked the same as without urine. Please tell me honestly, will you eat that CAKE with the added urine. Absolutely NO, if you are someone other than a Hindu (because they do drink cow urine). Same is happening with Lays chips. They are misleading the people of Pakistan where there is no law, no rules. Better to eat fried potatoes chips at home which is the best.

  27. does Lays are HALAL?

    • Lays Chips are Haram. The company is cheating on the people of Pakistan. The company has given wrong info to the people that a Mufti has approved Lay’s chips. Brother, it’s not true and you must avoid this unhealthy Haram chips. It has E621 which causes cancer and E631 which is prepared by using the technique of alkohol preparation. The end product might not contain alcohol and extract at the end, but it’s still unsuitable for Muslims. Wassalaam!

  28. In Islamic Country like Pakistan Also Many Companies Like Lays Chips,etc Producing chips with E631 Pig Fat…….!!

  52. thank you for telling because i always eat lays today my friend told me so i checked at net.at the back of rapper in ingredients it was written 3631,e627 and e160c.atthe bottom of rapper it was written HALAL .WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY????

  53. AOA THANK U ITS A GREAT NEWS FOR US.I GOT THAT NEWS FROM FORWARD MSGS.I SHALL TRY TO GIVE ITS FEED BACK

    • aslmoallaikumwarhmtullah wa barkatoo
      i read all the informtion about pig fat it is most painfull and i am shoked by that we use daily these things and these are not hallal. i want to say to all the people pleace carfull to use the english products. why they cheat us. thnks God forgive us.

  54. Assalamo Alaykum Dear Muslim Bretheren all over the earth.
    It indeed is a matter of satisfaction and happiness that finally we have been cautioned to remain clear of pork fat and its other accessories. I suggest some one amongst the Muslim schalor should investigate the prepositions scientifically and provide reasoned rationale. That is more logical. Because we ordinary people needguidence and reasoning because many out of us using such comodities and many are doing their business too. If that all is HARAAM then we must be guided properly.
    Secondly, our muslim traders and manufacturers and rich investors should take over this business of HALAL edebles and make sure that we the muslims are not eating HARAAM rather worst of HARAAM.
    Thirdly, we must also ponder over seriously about what all we eat as HALAL. Our majority is poor and can not meet their both ends. Mostly we are dependent either on loans as muslim states from IMF or World Banks of RIBA. See and evaluate that as well that economies in our homes are largely dependent on that is correct or not
    Fourthly, we muslims remained on intellectual holidays for over 1000 years. We have suddenly discovered many things that are HARAM and HALAL. It only confuse the issue. Let us find out that guiding others incorrectly is justified or not. Let us the muslims first get out of thr curse of dependence of HARAM economies with earnest work and influence of wisdom.
    And finally, let us also find out how much muslim we really are and how much Quraan is followed by us as individuals and as societies and communities.
    We must admit our economic and industrial slavery and dependence on HARAAM systems and also create our HALAL utilities with more concern than we do indicating that is HARAM and That is HALAL. I really feel ashmed of my self for being dependent on non muslims products I am bound to use.
    Please do not mind it and forgive for God’s sake. I am disturbed over the whole issue and feels my self guilty for muslims innocent assualt by HARAM products.
    Let us pary to Allah to guide us and bless us with strength to challange our capacities to to prevent eating and using HARAM. Oh God help us. Ameen, summa Ameen.

  55. Asalam-o-Aliakum
    i’ve come to know about the E codes through a sms on my cell and than I search for this site. I’m really thank full to Dr nabila who inform us about haram which we are taking in our daily food items and for sure this is really informative. I dont ask u to believe but go for ur own search but i think Europe is definitily using Pig fats in their produts.I just want to say just avoid those item for which you are noy sure. Allah Hafiz

  56. This site is about the information of enumber(codes).and for the E631 is written
    E631
    Disodium inosinate

    (Not normally suitable for vegetarians – usually made from meat or fish.)
    (http://www.laleva.cc/food/enumbers/E541-640.html)

    so i want to know how you are saying that it is made from pig meat.may be it is made from fish meat or any other animal meat.and 1 thing more that i know is what they write on the rapper, it is 100% correct that they have the same thing inside the rapper and it is clearly written hilal on it.I m Also a MUSLIM and offcourse not against the MUSLIMS but the we should know the truth and not to rumor any thing because it is aslo comes in lie and lie is a big sin.

  57. LAYS made by Pepsi cola international Lahore,Pakistan is HALAL.

  59. i think its too bad for the multinational companies that they are feeding the muslims with HARAM,
    they are spoiling our trust so we should place a ban over their such items.,as they are adding pig fat in LAYS etc.

  63. I did some research on internet regarding E 631 and got to know it was not only produced with pig fat but also produced from fish so i am confused the origin of fat used in muslim contries for E 631 products are harram or hallal

  64. Please be informed that i have checked the food code on the wraper of Pakistani Lays Chips (Halal). The food code includes (E621,E627)Flavour Enhancers, and E160b. Neither of these is included in those E code list which comes from Meat (Pork, Fish, Mutton, Beef).
    It is better research and then follow the Advice…
    All the best…..

    someone one has asked me about 435,471,322 is halal i was not sure but when i was looking on the internet i found this website and i had question in my mind.if all the numbers are listed on this websit are not halal then these numbers are mainlly in all the products you can not find anything whith out this if its not halal then i think they sould not be making this products at all. what will happen on the jugement day when god will ask us you knew about this products and still you were eating and giving your childern we can understand this things but what about our kids who want to have biscuit lolly cakes for there birthday or eat bread it;s not there misstake it will be made by us i think the australian food autherity do need to take note on this and they should stop making this knid off products or take this numbers off ingredients out off the mix befor they pack it to suply it to other stores i have on bussiens i didn’t knew before but since i have found out this i realy fell sorry for those who allready have taken productes from my store i hope Allh can forgive me and those how aer inosent.please pray for me from Allah.

  70. Assalam o Alikum,

    Dr.Mohammad Amjad Khan, how can you prove this that Code which is written in Lay’s Wrapper E-631 made from Pig Fat.Sir, where u had done this research.
    If the above mentioned are halal or haram then gave us proof.
    Because, this is most important for all muslims umma.

    Thanks,
    with best regards,
    Farhan Ali

  71. for all of those who seem to be jumping up and down worried about Lays having pork in it or not,,, you might also consider all of the other “poisons” in the ingredients and ask yourself, is it necessary to eat chips?? What value does it lend to your overall health and well being? nothing, actually it is detrimental!!

    they are also loaded with MSG which non of us needs to be injesting. go pick up a nice apple or banana or a package of fresh nuts if u must crunch.

    we are what we eat.

    fi amanilah

  72. Asslam u alikum,
    kindly guide me about that every snack and chips company in Pakistan is a foreign company and use to provide the frying stuff for the consumers,
    how do i should know that which stuff should be used.
    I will personaly spread this to all the persons around me.May Allah make it as the way of my forgiveness….
    keep facilitating to the Muslims.

    Jazak Allah Khair

  73. E631 can be extracted from fish , extracts of bear,and from pig fat. If first method is used then its alright. do u agree

  74. Asalaam Alaikum,
    if Dr amjad is right then plz give me proof
    DOES E621 CONTAIN PIG FAT?

  75. Take a bottle of Pepsi and ram it up your ass :/

  76. Assalam o Alaikum
    My dear brothers and sisters i am going to confirm that whether E631 contains pig fat or not, from the LAYS’ Manufacturer it self and also wants to advice you that you too confirm this from LAYS and their address in PAKISTAN ASIA is as follows:

    Plot No. 413, Sundar Industrial Estate, Sundar-Raiwind Rd. Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan.

    Wa Allah o Alam

  77. good brother

  78. AoA
    Dear you all please i want to know about the above mentioned research. Kindly Guide us please. That its TRUE or NOT.
    Thanks
    Sheeba

  79. E631 : Sodium inosinate
    Origin:
    Sodium salt of inosinic acid (E630), a natural acid, that is mainly present in animals. Commercially prepared from meat or fish (sardines). May also be produced by bacterial fermentation of sugars.

    Function & Characteristics:
    Flavour enhancer. Inosinic acid and inosinates do not have the specific umami taste but strongly enhance many other flavours, thereby reducing the amounts of salt or other flavour enhancers needed in a product.

    Products:
    Used in many products.

    Acceptable daily intake (ADI):
    None determined. Inosinates may not be used in products intended for children under 12 weeks.

    Side effects:
    Asthmatic people should avoid inosinates. As inosinates are metabolised to purines, they should be avoided by people suffering from gout. However, the concentrations used are generally so low that no effects are to be expected.

    Dietary restrictions:
    Inosinates are generally produced from meat, but partly also from fish. They are thus not suitable for vegans and vegetarians, and in most cases not suitable for Jews, Muslims and Hindus, depending on the origin of the product. Only the producer can provide information on the origin.

    Aa a Muslim we have 2 careful about these codes bcz in Islam we have learnt to avoid these things.

  84. I read the comments of all. I have the opinion that this is the one the most imformative sites. we should avoid the above mention things which contains PIG FAT.

    GOD BLESS our faith…
    thank you,

  87. dear dr amjid plz give us a solid proof that layz chips contain pig fat so that we can convience the other muslim to stop using it,

  88. Research by Dr Amjad Khan (Medical Research Institute, United States) has proved that many products of multinational firms including, but not limited to -

    TOOTH PASTE,
    SHAVING CREAM
    CHEWING GUM,
    CHOCOLATE,
    SWEETS,
    BISCUITS,
    CORN FLAKES, TOFFEES,
    CANNED FOODS,
    FRUIT TINS,

    have PIG FATS in them as ingredients.

    This is shown in the form of E-Codes printed on the packs of such products. So we must try to avoid items with the following E Codes:
    E100, E110, E120, E 140, E141, E153, E210, E213, E214, E216, E234, E252,E270, E280, E325, E326, E327, E334, E335, E336, E337, E422, E430, E431, E432, E433, E434, E435, E436, E440, E470, E471, E472, E473, E474, E475,E476, E477, E478, E481, E482, E483, E491, E492, E493, E494, E495, E542,E570, E572, E631, E635, E904.

    Lately We found the code E631 printed on the wrapper of LAYS POTATO CHIPS. The following images clearly show code E631 printed in the ingredients of LAYS POTATO CHIPS as flavour enhancers. Pig is HARAAM for Muslims. SO we MUST avoid eating it. These idiots are playing with our beliefs and making us eat whatever has been rsetricted by Allah and His Apostle (PBUH). We must be raise our voices against this crime.

    ive been receiving this sms regarding “lays” containing pig fat etc…so i also decided to put on some research….so i started with a pack of LAYS..and as a matter of fact there is nothing like E631 or E635 mentioned in the ingridients that are printed on the wrapper…i live in Pakistan and all my country-fellows can confirm that by checking that..i by the way confirmed that from their “french cheese” varient..
    ….it contains

    E621
    E627
    E160b
    so first watch out if that piggy ingridient is actually present in LAYS or not then further insight needs to be taken….i dont know about other Muslim countires but atleast in
    pakistan, LAYS only contains the above mentioned E’s.
    Thanks.

  95. I did some research on google and found out that E631(sodium inosoate) is extracted from animal fat(any animal). For Pakistanis, wake up, LAYS is manufactured in your own country. Now, the fat used in LAYS cannot be imported because it would be very costly and their company would go into a loss. Since pigs cannot be slaughtered in Pakistan, So their fat cannot be obtained because it involves hectic processing i.e., The fat is and can only be obtained from Halal meat. It means that LAYS ARE NOT HARAM so the likes of this Dr. should shut up.

  96. A.A
    that is to much good information and that is a good massage for muslims.plz aviod the all non halal items.thanks.

  97. Miss Saba Sahiba. Aap baishak Pakistani he hogi. Laikin Shaid aap ki Umer Mubbarick buhat kam hai ya aap ko sirf LAYS( French Cheese )he pasand hain. Baaqi LAYS kay Flavours ko kon check karay ga meri Bahan? E631 mentioned on the raper of LAYS (Salt) flovour only. Baaqi sab ki khair hai, sirf LAys salt ka masala hai par agar sirf Lays salt may bhee ho toe main toe baaqi products bhee use nahi karoonga. Aik aur baat bhala Pepsi ki products HALAL kaisay ho sakti hain. Fanta (the soft drink)is also Doubtfull product.

  98. Han toe Ahsan bhai Aap ko apni Zubaan ko lagaam daina chahiyay aur DOCTOR sahib say Apologize kar laina chahiyay. Aap ki research bhalay he correct ho par aap ko shut-up nahi kehna chahiyay tha.But Main kaafi hairaan bhee hoon aur paraishaan bhee kay aap nay kaisay LAYS ki product ko halal keh diya janab. Kiya LAYS aap kay baap ki hai. MUjhay pata hai kay LAYS may kiya Halal hai aur kiya Haraam. I,m the employe of LAYS. I worked in LAYS as general marketing manager. Urdu may toe sirf may Pakistaniyon kay liay likh raha hoon takay har Pakistani Sachai jaan sakay. LAYs agar Pakistan may banay gee toe flop nahi ho jaye gee janoo.Aap Raiwind road LAhore aajao aap ko sab pata chal jaye ga. Yahan LAYS industry may. JO hamara khaam maal hota hai wo bahir say he aata hai, hum yahan par ussay cook kartay hain takay fresh rahay but Maal toe bahir ka he hai na. Ab uss may E631 toe hoga he na.Hope you,ll understand and don`t mind it. But mind it that please do not use any product of PEPSI as well as LAYS.

    • bhi sahab aap ne ye search kahan se ki k lays haram hai.please mere id par reply karen
      ye e code pakistan main to nahi nahi na bante is liye hum nahi jante baigrat eourpian ne kiya add kiya hai.aur kiya nahi baat ye hai k vo muslims ko haram khilana chahte hain ta k un ki dua kabool na ho.lays is haram.

  106. urgent

  107. assalam o alaikum sir!
    i thank alot for giving us such a precious piece of information which is gud and favourable for all muslims. most of the people dont know anything about this fact

  108. Assalam-O-Alaikum Wa Rehmatullah
    Your research is based on Hypothesis not on solid proofs, [quote]The Europeans recognized these facts, and instead of writing PIG FAT, they started writing ANIMAL FAT[quote] From where you quoted this???
    I don’t know whether you are a human doctor or vet! Do you really know about Chemistry??? This is E631 Sodium 5′-inositate, you should check its chemical formula and how it is obtained… It is scientifically proved that E631 Sodium 5′-inositate is an acid obtained from meat of animals(including cow,buffalo, fish not necessarily from Pig). All lays are made locally in Pakistan and here aren’t pig forms in Pakistan, so are they crazy to use imported Sodium 5′-inositate??

    This isn’t a research but it is rather an attempt to create hatred against Europe and US however these all use Multi National Tooth pastes, soups etc… Islam don’t allow this hatred and Unauthentic words against anyone…

    Everyone go through the Chemistry… Bring solid proofs…

  109. i wnt to knew that all the stuff which include this e elementss are haramm or sm are halal?

  110. In my point of view, In pakistan how is it possible that any company used “Pig Fat”. A company works unders that “Company Act of Pakistan” in 1972.So how any Company Like every one above discussed about code E631 in Lays Chip, How is it possible in Islamic Republic of Pakistan.I AM CONFUSED ABOUT THAT ISSUE.

  111. barwaoo gandoo dalloo teri khus mai fire karo bhanchod.;.

  112. the E361 in lays is most likely imported from thailand…
    look at the link below….

    http://mukalma.blogspot.com/2009/05/no-pig-fat-in-e631.html

    also see the following link….

    http://www.food-info.net/uk/e/e631.htm

    I think that LAYS(product of pepsico)should authenticate that source of E631 is HALAL via
    advertisement of proof of it being halal OR by involving officials.

  113. Aslamo Alaikum plz it send to all muslim through sms newspaper radio and television.They avoid all such things which has been printed such codes which mentioned above.INSHALLAH we will avoid such things which mentioned codes as start E…. i m thankful to Dr Amjad for tell us such web site

  118. Dear brothers and sisters,
    One thing i want to give into your kind notice that email address i provide to you all is not attached with any single employee of company but it is belongs with customer service center of Lays Company.
    So any kind of comments and any kind of knowledge you want to get more regarding lays and its ingredients please write directly on this email address
    And i hope that lays will help you defiantly

    Pak.customerservice@intl.pepsico.com

    But if you not trusting anyone even on company statements and certificates then i never write any comment for you peoples. Because these companies or much much strict in their quality policies this we all knows better as compared by our locals business mans which only suck the blood of innocent peoples of Pakistan by providing poor quality products on heavy prices but never try to beat these companies by producing good quality products and then they try to creates these kinds of fake things into our Muslims minds using our religious emotions.

    You all well aware that same kind of fake stuff are created for Coca-Cola ,Nestle, Tang and many other multinationals companies but single one never proved yet.

    So please clear your minds by thinking cool
    Could anyone among you try to contact with originator of this fake propaganda (Dr Amjad) never i think you people only want to create more hype for lays consumers in lieu of nothing.

    Kindly first you search for Dr Amjad and get some solid proof that E631 (Flavor enhancer) used by lays Pakistan in its Masala Flavor is derivates from Pig fat

    But i challenge you all that you never can succeeds to get in touch with Dr Amjad which is a fake character of lays local competitors.

    My dear brother and sisters hopefully you all think from your minds not from your hearts and it is better for us to think from our minds

    So please search for Dr Amjad and find some solid proof please

    It is easy to point out some one without any proof but it is not easy to present truth

    Dears please for god sake don’t create misunderstands and hypes in innocent Muslims minds by only beating drum of this fake propagandas against multinational companies which provide us good quality stuff on an affordable prices and playing a vital role to make Pakistan better. Many of you also search career in these multinational companies instead to join local why? I think you can answer better and many of you presently serving these companies and well aware of their policies regarding quality and productions.

    Please offer prayers and recite holy Quran daily (it is my request to all Muslim brothers and sisters and save our EMAN)

    May Allaha shows us right path

    Remember me into your prayers

    Regards,
    You’re Brother
    Umar Shafique

  119. I think is better we go on a resach and find out WHAT THEY DO/PRODUCE WITH THE FAT since we all agree that they eat the meat so much…..

  120. Lays is produced in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan using 100% Halal
    ingredients
    We assure our consumers and customers that Lays Snacks Pakistan uses
    only 100% Halal ingredients in all its food products. Some news reports
    from a small section of the media suggest otherwise, and are absolutely
    false.
    All our ingredients (including flavor enhancer E631 that is used in Lays
    Masala, and imported from Thailand) are compliant with strict quality
    manufacturing and are 100 % Halal. E631 is produced from tapioca starch
    which is extracted from a plant called cassava. Pakistan Council of
    Scientific & Industrial Research (PCSIR), an established government
    body, has verified that Lays is free of all animal meat fat (i.e. it only
    contains vegetable fats). Jamia Ashrafia of Pakistan has also declared
    Lays as 100% Halal. E631 is also certified by the raw material supplier, as
    well as the Central Islamic Committee of Thailand, as Halal (and the
    latter has also specifically endorsed the use of the legend “Halal” for
    such flavor).
    Lays chips are produced in Pakistan from the best quality natural
    potatoes. As a company proud of its superior quality products and best
    industry practices, Lays Snacks Pakistan is a responsible corporate citizen.
    We strictly adhere to the local food laws which include only using
    certified Halal ingredients in all our products.
    Lays Snacks are sold in many other Muslim countries including Saudi
    Arabia, Egypt, UAE and Malaysia. In Pakistan, we employ over 1000
    people in the fields of agriculture, production and distribution and are
    contributing to various social causes like education and health.
    For further information, feel free to contact Mrs. Saima Arshad, Research
    & Development Head for Lays Snacks Pakistan at the following email:

    Disodium inosinate (E631), chemical formula C10H11N2Na2O8P, is the disodium salt of inosinic acid. It is a food additive often found in instant noodles, potato chips, and a variety of other snacks. It is used as a flavor enhancer, in synergy with monosodium glutamate (also known as MSG; the sodium salt of glutamic acid) to provide the umami taste. It is mainly found in animals like pigs and fish.
    In the US, comsumption of added 5′-ribonucleotides averages 4 mg per day, compared to 2 g per day of naturally occuring purines. A review of literature by an FDA committee found no evidence of carcinogenicity, teratogenicity, or adverse effects on reproduction.[1]
    As it is a fairly expensive additive, it usually is not used independently of glutamic acid; if disodium inosinate is present in a list of ingredients but MSG does not appear to be, it is possible that glutamic acid is provided as part of another ingredient or is naturally occurring in another ingredient like tomatoes, Parmesan cheese or yeast extract. It is often added to foods in conjunction with disodium guanylate; the combination is known as disodium 5′-ribonucleotides.

    ppl wen we dont know tht is it pig fat or fish….we shudnt use it…till we hav confirmation…..

  154. NOTE: According to Saima Arshad, R&D Manager, these certificates are authentic and indeed from Pepsi Pakistan.

    UPDATE: The ad from Lays and its Media Statement has been added.
    ]

    I have received a number of forwarded emails regarding E631 being present in the Lays Masala which is a product of Pepsi. It is highlighted that E631 is produced from pig fat. According to a comment by Saad on my post “Pig Fat By Dr. M. Amjad Khan”, E631 is present in other Pepsi products as well like Cravys and Kurkure. It is also said to be an ingredient of Kolson Slanty.

    Some googling tell that E631 can be generated in 3 different ways:

    It can be obtained from sardines (fish).
    It can be made from brewer yeast extract which is a by-product of beer making process.
    It can be extracted from pig meat.

    If method #1 is used then it is Halal. If method #2 is used then it is not Haram but it is better to avoid it. However if method #3 is used then most certainly it is Haram.

    One of the readers Mr Umar Shafique gathered the certificates proving that E631 being used by Pepsi in Pakistan is from Halal source. According to these certificates there is no pig fat or any other haram animal fat. I am attaching the certificates here with his permission. So thanks to Umar we can now relax and enjoy Lays, Cravysm, Kurkuray and Slanty.

    See below the certificate from Pepsi Pakistan ensuring that E631 used in Lays is from Halal Source:

    E631 is actually present in the flavoring masala used in Lays. This masala, called Masala Magic PC, is bought from International Flavors and Fragrances (IFF). The following certificate from IFF guarantees that E631 present in Masala Magic is Halal:

  156. AOA.thankx 4 understanding me

  157. i am so thankful to internet, because my children loved lays chips so very much, but now my family does not even look at the chips packet. thanks to Dr amjad.

  158. I have been a vegetarian for over 30 years and was appalled to discover, after eating a delicious gooseberry fool, that it contained pork gelatine.

    I am really annoyed – vegetarian gelatine IS available; why can’t manufacturers use that? Especially in fruit puddings!

    If they’re going to use pork in my puddings then the label should have read “Gooseberry and Pork Fool” and there should be a law making them do this, then people won’t buy and eat it in the mistaken belief that a sweet dessert contains a meat product.

    Since then I have checked ingredients on other products in different supermarkets and found that they all seem to contain pork gelatine. I’m going to write and ask them all for an explanation.

    (I expect that they’ll say that it’s cheaper than using vegetarian gelatine, but they’ve lost me as a customer – I won’t be buying them again.)

    • Linda,

      I agree with you. I am amazed how easily available the alternatives are yet manufacturer neglect a large segment of people who refrain from Animal products. This is specially true for drugs and food supplement manufacturers who make so many gel caps with gelatin without a vegetarian alternative.

      According to my understanding, there is no such thing as vegetarian gelatin unless it is qualified by something like Agar-Agar or Seaweed which are vegetarian source of gelatin-like food substance.

  159. Dear all,

    Let me clear all your doubts and confusions regarding the haram ingredient debate about Lay’s chips. I would like to invite you all to think sensibly and for once try to be reasonable.

    Lay’s manufacturers have been providing the masses with proofs and certificates about the halal authenticity of Lay’s. These proofs are open to all and sundry. Now what raises confusion is a report by some Muslim doctor in the West based on which several rumours and baseless claims are circulating.

    Here are a few explanations:

    Pakistan Council of Scientific and Industrial Research is an established government body which ensures optimum utilization of indigenous raw material resources for the development of industrial processes.
    The council undertakes cooperative research with local and foreign R&D organizations and commerce-industrial outfits on projects of national interest. It also conduct R&D work on problems faced by the industrial sector
    PCSIR has verified that Lay’s is free of all animal meat fat and contains only vegetable fat. The council verifies in its report that the fat extracted from the provided sample contains vegetable fat. No animal fat is used in the product and hence there are no chances of pig fat neither in the ingredient E 631 or any other.

    The South African National Halaal Authority is an internationally recognized organization and an acknowledged authority on all matters pertaining to the general application of the term Halal with specific reference to Islamic dietary laws.
    SANHA has over the past several years rendered assistance to the Halal Industry in Pakistan and has Issued Halal certification to several Pakistani companies. It is committed to standardizing Halal procedures internationally thereby rendering a credible service to both the consumer and the industry.
    SANHA has investigated the ingredients used by Lays Pakistan. It has confirmed that the ingredients are Halal compliant. The authority has explained that the E631 used by Lay’s Pakistan is derived from Tapioca starch, a plant based raw material which has been certified Halal.

    Jamia Ashrafia is a premier seat of Islamic learning in Pakistan; affiliated with the Pakistan Wafaaq ul Madaaris, a Board of Islamic Education for over 7000 Madaris-e-Islamiyya in Pakistan. Jamia Ashrafia serves as an authentic source to matters pertaining to Islam, its procedures and results. Replying to the query put forward by Lay’s the Jamia is of the view that if the manufacturers and the concerned authorities have verified that the E-code ingredients included in the product have been extracted from plants and no such animal fat is used, the consumption of the Lay’s product is right and in accordance to Islam. Jamia Ashrafia condemns the tagging of the product as haram unless and until it has not been proved.

    The proofs presented above are indeed an eye opener. They not only clear the confusion but also remove doubts from the mind of a layman

    Now my question is: How can a single person’s report on this ingredient debate become voice of millions and millions of Muslims all over the world? And does this single report have more weightage than the several proofs presented above?

    Moreover, Lays employs over 1000 people in Pakistan in the fields of agriculture, production and distribution. Besides employment, their various social causes like education and health are also being taken care of. Will not the circulation of such baseless claims jeopardize the livelihood of these hardworking individuals?

    It is time for us to act as responsible citizens and stand up against rumors which threaten the very essence of our economic fabric and create nothing but mass hysteria.

    Regards,

    Humna Alim.

    i am not a quality supervisor but am a Lab Tachnician and its clearly proved that neither Cow, Buffalo, goat, deer, Camel, Fish, Rabbit, Duck, Hen etc (meant Halal Animals) fat has such a quality that is present in the LAYS why pepsi is marketing it in Pakistan when it is not its product like 7up remember 7up is a german Company’s Product named FIDO DIDO and its the only softdrink available out there without caffiene and tartrazine and benzoic acid

    while every other soft drink actually becomes a hard drink when any of these three chemical becomes its ingredient.

    Carbonated Water is antioxidant and so could be used as medicine.

    while PIG could never be HALAL and i personally do not agree with those Molvis who for their personal benifits say that Alchohol and Pigs meat (PORK) is useable as life saving drug (La haula wala Quwwa ta iLLAH Billah)

    Allah says “he hasn’t put remedy for any disease in prohibited items”

    in urdu
    “Allah Ta`ala nay kisi Haram cheez main Shifa nahin Rakhi”

    aur jahan tak baat hay Lays ki

    Main nain jab say suna hay tab say hi khana chorr diya hay kiun kay chahay yeh halal ho ya haram ab Mashkook ho chukki hay
    aur Nabi Akram SAWW ka farman hay
    “jis cheez ka tumhen yaqeen ho usay lay lo aur jo shay tumhen shak main mubtila karay usay chorr do”

    So request to All reading this just for lays now become MASHKOOK stop eating it

    eat SLANTY with a Pakistan’s Govt Approved Stamp of HALAL and not of HILAL remember this difference too their next attack will be something like this
    and most of you now know the reallity

    May Allah Bless All those who found are trying to find the Right Path (Sirat-e- Mustaqeem)

    and May Allah estonish all those who are having eyes on Muslim Ummah’s Faith

    TAKE CARE

    OF YOU AND

    ALL

    AROUN YOU

    ALLAH HAFIZ

    first thanks very much for this fablus job to provided such useful and profitable information.
    here i have a quest that if a product says sutible for vegetarian.(Does it mean THAT PRODUCT IS HALAL)

    THANKS

    • Most of the vegetarian product are safe but it still depends on ingredients as Alcohol is considered vegetarian but it is not OK in Halal Food.

      Always read the ingredients of products coming from a non-muslim country.

  168. Assalaamualaikum,

    Kindly let me know the ingrediants of AJINOMOTTO product as i heard and got confirmed by some scholors as it contains Pig Fat extracts. I hot i could get the solution from this.

  169. Assalamu_Alaikum Muslim Brother(s) & Sister(s)!
    I appriciated what this WEB Page is highlighting the brothers about. Once again, I want call for the Brother(s): “Pls Brother(S)! Leave HARAM & MUTASHABIHAT and go for HALAL!” (Al-Hadith)!
    Bissalam!

  170. Assalam-o-Alakum,

    how can we find detail about codes of conservante ?

    Please help me & reply soon at ak.aamirkhan@gmail.com

  171. Assalam-o-Alakum,

    Just 1 thing if you have any daught on soft drinks then why you get confused. Drinks are not our life friends it’s not important for us. so just Leave it.

  172. Plz can anybody confirm that almaria flavor milk in Saudi Arabia contains E120 contains pig fats

    Jazakallah Khair for your answer

  173. Salam…

    Code E110 is for colouring purposes…if i’m not mistaken it is yellow colouring… In the vege society list, code e110 was not mentioned. So, which list must i refer to?? Many snacks in Malaysia contains this type of ingredients… I checked with Jakim e-halal, one of the snacks with that E110 code, was halal, but in the present the company did not renew their halal certificate yet. I’m worry about food colouring now… as my husband and i like to cook and bake. We use star brand colouring… but there’s no code printed in the ingredients… any suggestion on how to solve my worries????

    • Alaykum Salaam Eja,

      According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunset_Yellow_FCF
      “It is a synthetic coal tar and azo yellow dye useful in fermented foods which must be heat treated. It may be found in orange squash, orange jelly, marzipan, Swiss roll, apricot jam, citrus marmalade, lemon curd, sweets, hot chocolate mix and packet soups, trifle mix, breadcrumbs and cheese sauce mix and soft drinks.”

      It seems that this is a coal tar based product which does not come from Animal source so I will not be too worried about it.

      E110 seems fine to consume, surely Allah knows best.
      Ali

    • Salaam Alaykum Br Obaid,

      It is hard to say without knowing more context. I usually don’t suspect an item made in a muslim country.
      Allah knows best.

      Fi AmaaniLLah
      Ali
