The following is a list of food additives as organized by the Codex Alimentarius Commission. The International Numbering System numbers below (INS #) are assigned by the committee to identify each food additive. The INS numbers generally correspond to E numbers for the same compound – e.g. INS 102, Tartrazine, is also E-102. INS numbers are not unique and, in fact, one number may be assigned to a group of like compounds.

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',[1] and those approved for Australia and New Zealand with an 'A'.[2][3]
