Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam,

Thanks to Dr.Takim for providing the following answer.

 Kindly provide answers to the following question. The reply to my questions
 should be based on the rulings of Ayatollah Syed Ali Seestani.
 Question) Recently on arrival to Geneva I came across a problem to a
 E471 used in many of the icecreams and breads.  It seems that it is derived
 from animals especially pigs and was told that it was haram to eat ice-creams
 or breads containing this E471.
 I would like to know if it halal or haram to eat items containing E471.  If
 haram I would like to know how it is different from gelatine which becomes
 halal after going chemical transformation.
 Also let me know if their are other such things I must take precaution

 The E471 is apparently a fatty acid stabilizer. From what I have been
 reliably told, it is not fat. Moreover, due to the process of istihala
 (transmutation whereby the original substance goes through a complete
 chemical change) we are allowed to consume products which are extracted from
 Allah knows the best
