Moirs Essence and Denatured Alcohol

Q: Is Moirs vanilla essence Halal? It contains denatured ethanol and E122.

A. Denatured alcohol does not contain intoxicating characteristics, so it’s Halaal. E122 is a synthetic dye and is also Halaal. Therefore, Moirs essence is Halaal for consumption.

And Allah knows best.
