E numbers are number codes for food additives and are usually found on food labels throughout the යුරෝපියානු සංගමය. The numbering scheme follows that of the International Numbering System (INS) as determined by the Codex Alimentarius committee [1]. Only a subset of the INS additives are approved for use in the European Union, the 'E' prefix which stands for Europe. In casual language in the UK and Ireland, the term "E-number" is used as a pejorative term for artificial food additives, and products may promote themselves as "free of E-numbers" even though most of the (natural) ingredients contain components that also have an E-number (e.g. Vitamin C (E300) or lycopene, the colour in tomatoes). To have a diet without any components that also have an E-number is basically impossible. Free of E-numbers thus refers mainly to the use of additives, not to the absence of components with an E-number.

E numbers are also encountered on ආහාර labelling in other jurisdictions, including the GCC, ඕස්ට්‍රේලියාව, නවසීලන්තය and Israel. The "E" prefix is omitted in ඕස්ට්‍රේලියාව and New Zealand. They are increasingly (though still rarely) found on North American packaging, especially in කැනඩාව.
