This page relates to M & M’s, a Mars brand. Last updated May 2020.

M and M’s are everyone’s favourite but unfortunately, they are not halal nor are they suitable for vegetarians.

Every effort has been made to assess M & M’s. All products are haram, as they contain E120 Cochineal. You can read more on Cohineal here.

The following are Haraam
  • M&M’s Peanut
  • M&M’s Milk Chocolate
  • M&M’s Crispy

Recipes may change so always check the ingredients on the pack.

  1. Would the ingredients sections mention that it has E120? I’m reading the back of an m&m’s crispy now and E120 is not mentioned. However, E100, E133, E160a, E160e and E171 are mentioned.

    1. Salam,

      The mentioned ingredients are all halal. Can you double check there’s no carmine? If so the product should be halal.

      The e numbers you mentioned are all colours.

    1. Carmine is another word for E120
      There’s different names for E120, Carmine . Google will mention them all , please double check before buying any products
