D'italiano bread (HALAL or Haram?)

Assalaamu alaikum, Here's an Email and response from D'italiano bread company. I was especially worried about their Bread and the use of Sodium Stearoyl-2 Lactylate in them. Have a look


This email is to acknowledge that none of our bakeries use any animal bi-products in our bread and rolls. All fats, shortenings and micro ingredients (such as mono/di-glycerides and dough conditioners) are of vegetable source or origin.
You will need to read the ingredient declaration/allergy statement on the bread and rolls and there will be listed whether or not the product contains eggs or milk. Our packaging has a "Precautionary Allergen Warning" which says "may contain... (whatever allergen is present/or not in the product).

Should you have further questions concerning any of our products, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Hi This is regarding your bread-products, especially your sliced breads and sausage buns. My question is, do they have any animal bi-products in them? My query is especially regarding the inclusion of Sodium Stearoyl-2 Lactylate, which may or may not be derived from animal-origins. Any reply in this regard would be appreciated. Thanks, Aqeeq
