emulsifiers in packaged bread


#1

When no kosher certified bread is available in a country and one wants to buy regular packaged government bread, what does one need to look for?
is E481 emulsifier a problem?


#2

Not sure about that. Sometimes it comes from animal fat. See if the bakery or supermarket advertise it as vegetarian. That’s ur best bet.


#3

Since emulsifiers are derivatives of fatty acids that MAY be of animal origin, and they are not there for taste, but rather texture, why would it matter?,

Maybe it doesn’t. But we would need to confirm that. If we can be sure there’s no taste or it’s inedible, then it would be fine. I don’t know enough about it.
