List of food additives, Codex Alimentarius

The following is a list of food additives as organized by the Codex Alimentarius Committee. The International Numbering System numbers below (INS #) are assigned by the committee to allow each food additive to be uniquely identified.

On packaging in the European Union, approved food additives are written with a prefix of 'E'.
Australia and New Zealand do not use a prefix letter when listing additives in the ingredients.

In the table below, food additives approved for Europe are listed with an 'E', and those approved for Australia and New Zealand with an 'A'. See also the list of E numbers.
