In the EU, the food additives have an "E-number". Although you should always doublecheck wikipedia if this is for work/school, this list in the link gives a nice impression of all the regulated food additives.

In the EU, the complete list of ingredients is always printed on the label (it is mandatory), including all the E-numbers that were used. Here are two examples of labeling in the EU:
