Halal - yes

E574 - Gluconic acid, D-: Organic compound

Muslim Consumer Group

Derived from plant products - yes

E574 - Gluconic acid, D-: Gluconic acid occurs naturally in fruit, honey, kombucha tea and wine and is used as a food additive, an acidity regulator. It is also used in cleaning products where it helps cleaning up mineral deposits. It is a strong chelating agent, especially in alkaline solution. It chelates the cations of calcium, iron, aluminium, copper, and other heavy metals.

MBM Foods

Genetically engineered - yes

E574 - Gluconic acid, D-: Gluconic acid is produced from dextrose (glucose). The tranformation of glucose to gluconic acid can be achieved with the aid of enzymes (glucose oxidase) or by fermentation with certain moulds. With glucose, as with all products of starch saccharification, various applications of gene technology are possible. Raw material: maize starch may consist partly of genetically modified maize, especially if the raw materials are imported out of the USA or Argentina. In some EU countries, genetically modified maize is grown on comparatively small areas and nonetheless is not used as raw material for foodstuff. This may change in the case that the cultivation of GM maize increases in significance. Ingredients derived from several types of GM maize are approved in the EU. Enzymes solubilise plant starch and metabolise it into compounds that are classified as ingredients and additives. Several of these enzymes, such as amylases, glucose-isomerase and pullulanase (used in starch saccharification) are produced with help of GM microorganisms .
