I bought this particular book title Islamic Parenting. One of the topics tells about eating habits. As I was reading, I came across this particular ingredient which is contained in most chocolates an ice creams: they are have Emulsifier 471. These are pork fats and they name it such a way. After reading it, I called MUIS & checked with them. They told me that it is actually pork fats. I checked most chocolate brands and ice creams, and that most of them we cannot eat. I'm telling you this because after reading & enquiring I feel that as Muslims we should not make the same mistake. Before eating any chocolates or ice creams please check the ingredients first. You can still eat those ice creams which have HALAL approved labels on them e.g. Walls, Kings.
I got this information from a friend, please let it be known to our "un-informed" muslim friends.
