This was forwarded to me.. so I am not responsible for the contents. I found it an interesting read so thought I would share.. This is a dirty business and all Muslims should be very careful when shopping for food. If you eat haraam without knowing.. you have STILL EATEN haraam!! I always look for 'Vegetarian friendly' labelling on ALL my food, even if it means going with no frills brands - this is more important when E numbers are present in the ingredients. Note: E numbers are NOT ALWAYS from animals as the report suggests. They can also have vegetable origins.

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

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 A
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
inslaughter 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.

Formally, 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 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

Regarding toothpaste, I heard recently that some of the major brands are not suitable for us even though the ingredients may not indicate that.

Salam aleikom all! As far as the story goes i dont have any knowlegde of that. But for the E-numbers this is true and nothing else, why someone would claim it as false or a hoax due to lack of personal understandig\research or anything else i would say ... i dont have the word for it.

I live in Europe and surely on every item with food in it there is used E-numbers, in some occations they leave the E-numbers out and use the scientific name for it, this is only for the item to look like it doesnt have any "E's" in it as some people dont want foods full of "E's"! (additives)

ive had some lists and memorized many of the numbers but not all, i know the ones that they often use. InshAllah i will learn them all soon!

Be extra aware of "Gelling agents" and "Thickeners" (400 series) But as the list above states, all of those numbers!

Here are some sites where you can reasearch these facts, i think it is your duty to! (be aware of what you put in your mouth)

List of all? E-numbers and the ingredients they stand for:
http://www.faia.org.uk/enumbers.php

A site for better understandig of the number groups:
http://www.eatwell.g...andingenumbers/

Here is a list of E-numbers wich originates from animals (Might not be complete, i havent checked the source of this site)
http://www.food-info.../qa/qa-fi45.htm

For those who like "Wiki". E numbers
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E_number

Tough some of the E-numbers may be vegeterian, it will most often say so! (IE: E471 soya lecetin)

If you are not sure, call the manufacturer and ask them! ive done this some times and it is their duty to tell you.

What is gelatin/gelatine? Is there any alternative to it?

Gelatin (US spelling) or gelatine (British spelling) (used to make Jell-o and other desserts) is made from the boiled bones, skins and tendons of animals. An alternative substance is called Agar-Agar, which is derived from seaweed. Another is made from the root of the Kuzu. Agar-Agar is sold in noodle-like strands, in powdered form, or in long blocks, and is usually white-ish in color.

Allmost allways made from pig, if not it usually states what animal or if vegiterian it will say so.

Print the numbers on a piece of paper or just write them down, and keep them in your wallet or even on your mobile phone so you have them avalible when shopping.

So that means every time we go shopping we got to check the product doesnt have any of these numbers. That would take quite a while.

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.

Some of the e-numbers listed are rare, and maybe 10-30% is commonly used. Most foods usually just have 3-6 E's in them, so checking these doesnt take forever. and when you have checked one item you dont have to this everytime!

but you should check the items every 3-6 months or so as the ingredients can change, without changing the design or the package.

Allah doesnt make anything impossible for us, and may He inshAllah make it easy for us to be aware of haram foods and drinks!
