Recently there have been lots of messages in circulation. This is regarding one of the ingredients which is said to contain pork traces, and it has come to my attention that many of the packet foods that we commonly use like LAYS, DORITOS, etc do contain this ingredient: E631. Please clarify this issue and also do let me know if there are any other such particular codes that we need to watch out before consuming any such products. Jazakallah khair.


If you are certain about pork traces in any food items, it is forbidden to consume.
