The Emulsifier 471 used in the Streets Ice Cream products is sourced from vegetable. The gelatine used is derived from beef and is Halal, although our factory is not Halal accredited.
Many of the Streets products contain the best quality natural based flavours and natural flavours are extracted using alcohol.
Generally the alcohol source is a food chemical named Propylene glycol which in general use is synthesised in a lab, but is found naturally as an extract of natural gas.
As far as we are aware the Propylene glycol is not extracted from grapes. For specific products it is difficult to confirm the source of the alcohol used, as we source the flavours from a variety of suppliers- the alcohol may be natural or synthetic.
