Halal - maybe

E471 - Mono- and di- glycerides of fatty acids: Emulsifiers and Stabilizers - salts or Esters of Fatty Acids. If the fat source is from soy fat then it is Halal. If it is from pork fat then it is Haram. If it is from non zabiha beef then it is not Halal. If a claim appeared on food package "Suitable for Vegetarian" containing E-Number 471 then it means the E Number 471 is from soy fat. The food product is Halal if all other ingredients are Halal

Derived from plant products - maybe

Synthetic substance - yes

E471 - Mono- and di- glycerides of fatty acids: Synthetic fats, produced from glycerol and natural fatty acids, mainly from plant origin, but also fats of animal origin may be used. The product generally is a mixture of different products, with a composition similar to partially digested natural fat. For use in baked goods, all types of dairy foods, margarine and ice cream. No known adverse effects. The body metabolises the products as any other fat. The individual components are also produced normally in the body when digesting normal fat. Although mainly vegetable oils are used, the use of animal fat (incl. pork) can not be excluded. Several groups, such as vegans, Muslims and Jews thus avoid these products. Only the producer can give detailed information on the origin of the fatty acids. Chemically the fatty acids from vegetable or animal origin are identical.

MBM Foods

Contains soybeans - yes

E471 - Mono- and di- glycerides of fatty acids: The basic material for mono and diglycerides comes mainly from soya beans. Soya beans: internationally traded primary product soya stems in general completely or in part from genetically modified plants. GM soya beans are grown on a large scale in Argentina and the USA. The EU imports a large part of the soya primary products from these countries. Some food companies process exclusively conventional soya raw material. However, it is not technically possible to keep a strict separation of conventional and GM soya beans through all the processing steps. Therefore, even raw materials that are declared as "free of gene technology" contain a small amount of genetically modified material.
