Assalam alaikum! These days we are confronted with various food products available in the market, in India whose ingredients include codes like these:E473, E474, E475, E476, E477, E478, E631, E635, E640, E920 and many more which some people consider to be haraam.Can you please give some information whether these food items are halaal or haraam?

We have no confirmation about the code numbers being Haram.

You should write the ingredients of the product, then we can have a say.
