View my web app E-Code Halal Filter to check the status instantly.
This card shows the e-code numbers with their halal status. Most of the time, it is hard to tell whether a product is halal or not just by looking at the E-Codes or E-Numbers in its ingredients. This card is designed so that consumers can easily scan through the numbers and refer to the card to make sure a product is halal.

Is there an app for that?
Yes, there’s an app that works the same, by showing the halal status and some description about it. But by using this card, you can free yourself from using smartphone or any means of technology. Based on my observation, most apps take awhile to load. If you are shopping or browsing in the supermarket in hurry, you don’t have time to swipe or key in the numbers manually into your phone. The point of creating this card is to save your time and simplify the process of checking the halal status.

- If you still want to buy the product, it is up to you. You can also contact the manufacturer to enquire about the manufacturing process and ingredients related to it
What does the color mean?
DEPENDS (gray) – or conditional. If it is made from plant or mineral, it is halal. If it is from animal, it’s likely not halal.
MUSHBOOH (yellow) – it is in doubt of their halal status. Avoid products containing these numbers.
HARAM (red) – Obviously means Haram.
