E-Code Checker Application
Nowadays, many areas in computer sciences use ontology such as knowledge engineering, software reuse, digital libraries, web on the heterogeneous information processing, semantic web, and information retrieval. The area of halal industry is the fastest growing global business across the world. The halal food industry is thus crucial for Muslims all over the world as it serves to ensure them that the food items they consume daily are syariah compliant. However, ontology has still not been used widely in the halal industry. Today, Muslim community still have problem to verify halal status for halal products in the market especially in foods consisting of E number. In this paper, ontology will apply at E numbers as a method to solve problems of various halal sources. There are various chemical ontology and databases found to help this ontology construction. The E numbers in this chemical ontology are codes for chemicals that can be used as food additives. With this E numbers ontology, Muslim community could identify and verify the halal status effectively for halal products in the market.
