In the Name of Allah, the Inspirer of Truth.
Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

As of today we will be referring to SANHA's E Numbers list.  They have a lot of recent research from erudite Ulamaa and further the list is much easier to navigate.

South African National Halaal Authority - E-Numbers : http://www.sanha.co.za/a/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1720&Itemid=258

The old foodguide list was somewhat outdated and due to limited personnel & resources we were unable to update to research E-Numbers and hence decided to go along with Sanha.

That said, we differ with SANHA in some of the rulings and hence these will be detailed here as we discover them.  There will always be differences of opinion between Ulamaa, and is a Rahmah for the Ummah. 

E422 (glycerine) - We regard gylcerine as permissible, as it is subject to a complete chmical metamorphosis.

 And Allah knows Best
Wa Alaykumussalaam Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh
