Derived from plant products - yes

E101 - Riboflavins: Riboflavin is found naturally in asparagus, popcorn, bananas, persimmons, okra, chard, cottage cheese, milk, yogurt, meat, eggs, fish, and green beans (particularly on the ends), each of which contain at least 0.1 mg of the vitamin per 3–10.5 oz (85–300 g) serving.

Biotechnology used in production - maybe

E101 - Riboflavins: Various biotechnological processes have been developed for industrial scale riboflavin biosynthesis using different microorganisms, including filamentous fungi such as Ashbya gossypii, Candida famata and Candida flaveri, as well as the bacteria Corynebacterium ammoniagenes and Bacillus subtilis. The latter organism has been genetically modified to both increase the bacteria's production of riboflavin and to introduce an antibiotic (ampicillin) resistance marker, and is now successfully employed at a commercial scale to produce riboflavin for feed and food fortification purposes. The chemical company BASF has installed a plant in South Korea, which is specialized on riboflavin production using Ashbya gossypii. The concentrations of riboflavin in their modified strain are so high, that the mycelium has a reddish / brownish color and accumulates riboflavin crystals in the vacuoles, which will eventually burst the mycelium.

Halal - maybe

E101 - Riboflavins: Color Halal if it is made from synthetic source otherwise need investigation for it source.

Biotechnology used in production - maybe

E101 - Riboflavins: To date, vitamin B2 was synthesised predominantly in a multiple-stage chemical procedure. Meanwhile it is also produced with help of genetically modified microorganisms. The Swiss concern, Roche Vitamins AG, by now taken over by the DSM, has developed a production technique that employs GM microorganisms (Bacillus subtilis). Since 2000, in Grenzach, close to Basel, a facility for the production of vitaminB riboflavin is in operation.
