Hi all, could a lowly little moderator please ask a question of you all? Probably more directed at Vegans and vegetarians?

I'm looking for a website that has a reasonable list of food codes (you know, when they don't say what is on the packaging, just giving a numbered code) to peruse?

Haven't had any luck with the serahc engines, even AskJeeves, as there are sooo many food websites my search results are pretty hard going to pickj out what I'd like.

Many thanks...

Unless he means some strange NZ food coding system that we mere English aren't aware of..... "I'll carry this....It's harder to spill a hat" - Chellybean

Glass needs thanking too. If he hadn't suggested E numbers I wouldn't've known what i was looking for. "I'll carry this....It's harder to spill a hat" - Chellybean
