Halal - maybe

E632 - Potassium 5’-inosinate: A flavor enhancer. Dipotassium Inosinate is a nucleotide commercially obtained from Torula Yeast cells. Torula yeast is grown on alcohol in USA to obtain Nucleotide which mostly used in infant baby formula. In Europe if Torula yeast grown on sugar cane and Sodium Inosinate is obtained from it then it is Halal otherwise it is not Halal.

Derived from animal products - yes

E632 - Potassium 5’-inosinate: Commercially prepared from meat or fish (sardines). May also be produced by bacterial fermentation of sugars. Flavour enhancer. Inosinic acid and inosinates do not have the specific umami taste but strongly enhance many other flavours, thereby reducing the amounts of salt or other flavour enhancers needed in a product. Used in many products. Mainly used in low sodium/salt products. Acceptable daily intake (ADI): None determined. Inosinates may not be used in products intended for children under 12 weeks. Asthmatic people should avoid inosinates. As inosinates are metabolised to purines, they should be avoided by people suffering from gout. However, the concentrations used are generally so low that no effects are to be expected. Inosinates are generally produced from meat, but partly also from fish. They are thus not suitable for vegans and vegetarians, and in most cases not suitable for Jews, Muslims and Hindus, depending on the origin of the product. Only the producer can provide information on the origin.

Genetically engineered - yes

E632 - Potassium 5’-inosinate: As the starting point for inosinates, inosinic acid may be manufactured with the aid of genetically modified organisms. However, in individual cases it cannot be verified if, and to what degree, this process is exploited commercially.
