E120 is a red food coloring which is derived from insects. This ingredient can be found in a lot of food. Recently, they've started using E120 in the gelatin-free Skittles produced in the UK, which has caused most Muslims up there to stop consuming them. E120 is most common term for this substance used in ingredient labels, however they may also list it as carmine (dye) or cochineal.

A: Jaaiz nahi he.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
