The Vegan Society (http://www.vegansociety.com/html/info/info27.html) have a list of E numbers that are animal derived and also ones that may posssibly be animal derived on this page.

I have to say that my 'fluff for brians' couldn't remember all of that when shopping, so I just don't buy things with E numbers in. It stops my fluffy brains falling out of my ears. :blush:

Just people getting lazy and instead of putting big long names on packaging its easier to just put E903

Thank you Icebear, I guess I don't have to worry about it I never buy anything that has an ingredient that I don't know what it is.

Ahhh, a man after my own heart. :D

Edit: I just noticed the "Off the Market" thing-- so THAT's what that arrow was pointing at! LOL! :silly: No worries, I like my men a bit closer than halfway around the world anyway! I'm just a shameless silly Flirter With Fellow Nerds is all. ;)

WE NOW RETURN YOU TO YOUR REGULARLY SCHEDULED E-NUMBERS PROGRAMMING...
