  • Is it halal to use personal care products containing linalool, alcohol denat, stearyl alcohol, hydrolyzed silk - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    What are Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Butyl Alcohol, Lauryl and Oleyl Alcohol used in Personal Care Products. Are they Halal:

    All above alcohol are not Ethyl Alcohol but they are fatty alcohol or fatty waxes made from either animal fat such as pork fat or vegetable fat such as soy fat. Only manufacturer will know the source of these ingredients. If any personal care company says that no animal derived ingredients are used in their products containing above alcohols it means they are obtained from vegetable fat.

    Ulema allow denatured alcohol to b euse in personal care products. Linolin is obtained from sheep wool without slaughtering and it is Halal.

  • ingredients used in centrum multivitamines product of USA are ok for muslims? if not , then what are the resions, please guide - Muhammad Tariq
  • AOA

    MUSLIMS ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTIONS TO HALAL VITAMINS

    Many Muslims are using non Halal vitamins from stores like Wal-Mart, Walgreen, CVS Pharmacy, GNC. This is because of lack of knowledge about the Halal status of those vitamins. MCG get every day a question from Muslims asking about the Halal status of xyz vitamins. MCG is providing help in picking up the Halal vitamins after it researched at Vitamin Shoppe stores which are located in every city of USA. MCG advises Muslims to check the Halal status of vitamins before consuming them.

    Many major brand of vitamins are not Halal such as: Centrum, Equate, Citracal, Nature Made, Vitafusion, One A Day, GNC, Flintstone, Nature Beauty, Walgreen, Geritol, Nature Bounty, Garliq, Estroven, Disney Gummies, Fiber Smart, Caltrale, Finest Nature, One Source, Lill Critteers, Culturelle, Philps, Ultimate Florea, Viactive, Elatins, Os-Cal, Spring Valley, Schiff, Stevia, Optimum Nutrition, Mega Red, Ocuvite, Alive, Centrum Kid, Active Kid, Spring Valley, Bayer, CVS Vitamins and Kirkland Signature. They are not Halal because they are not Halal or Kosher certified or do not have a Halal or Kosher symbol on the package.

    Even if they do not contain gelatin, they are still not Halal because they add without restriction any Haram hidden ingredient. Halal or Kosher certification protects Muslims from adding Haram Hidden or Processing Aid Ingredients which are not required to be mention under ingredients statement by FDA. MCG has a list of Halal multivitamins, individual vitamins, prenatal vitamins and fish oil or omega 3 on our website under "Vitamins". Please use this list of Halal vitamins. How to search Halal vitamins on our website: Please write vitamins or prenatal vitamins or fish oil (for Omega fish oil) under the search box then click Food Product by Category then click Show Only Halal then click search. You will get a list of 45 Halal vitamins, 3 Halal prenatal vitamins, 6 Halal fish oil (Omega fish oil) and where to buy them.

  • Assalaamualaikum bro. We all know that muslims are prohibited to take alcohol made from Grapes and Dates only. I have bought a cold drink named Thumbs Up in India which is a product of Pepsi Co India holdings. Under the ingredients heading it is clearly stated that it does not contain any fruit. And also it has a 'suitable for vegetarian symbol' that means it is free from animal derivatives. And as I mentioned earlier, it does not contain any fruit which means-- although it contains alcohol it is not made with any fruit(grapes and dates). So is it Halal? Is it safe to consume? Jazakh Allah. - Syed Muteeb

  • Assalamoalaikum I read in one of your answers on the website that vanilla flavour is haram. I n very confused as we use many things in which there is either artificial or natural vanilla flavour. I want to know whether vanilla flavour is haram altogether or are there any exceptions? Also what about vanilla extract or essence used in baking? Waiting for your prompt response. JazakAllah hu khair. - Mrs. Farrukh
  • AOA

    Natural Vanilla flavor is made from vanilla beans by use of alcohol. So vanilla flavor contains alcohol and it is not Halal. Vanillin a artificial vanilla flavor does not contain alcohol so it is Halal.

  • Asalam alaikum, I want to ask about Edwards Georgia Pecan Pie. It has a kosher symbol on it with a u circled and a D on it. Its ingredients are as below: Corn Syrup, Enriched Flour (Wheat Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Sugar, Pecans, Water, Eggs, Vegetable Shortening (Palm Oil And Soybean Oil), Margarine (Palm Oil, Water, Soybean Oil, Salt, Vegetable Mono- And Diglycerides, Soy Lecithin, Sodium Benzoate [A Preservative], Citric Acid, Natural And Artificial Flavor, Beta Carotene [Color], Vitamin A Palmitate Added), Contains 2 Percent Or Less Of Each Of The Following: Modified Food Starch, Salt, Dextrose, Soy Lecithin, Yeast, Artificial Flavor, Colored With Turmeric And Annatto, Enriched Bleached Flour (Bleached Wheat Flour, Malted Barley Four, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Preserved With Potassium Sorbate And Sodium Propionate. I wrote the following email to Edwards: I wish to ask a question about your Georgia Pecan Pie. Please tell me if alcohol is used as a solvent in its natural and artificial flavors. Alcohol is a hidden ingredient of the flavor, it will not appear in the ingredients statement. The knowledge of presence or absence of alcohol in flavor is only known to your QA or Technical service department that has access to the specification of flavors, not the customer service. In the specification of flavor, the flavor supplier is supposed to write the name of solvent or carrier used in a flavor by law. So please request them to find out from your QA or Technical service department whether alcohol is a hidden ingredient in flavor or not, and whether alcohol is used as a solvent or not?? Thank you This is the response I got from them today: Thank you for your email about our Edwards Georgia Pecan Pie. In response to your question about the ingredients in this product, this pie will not contain any alcohol. We ask that you email or call us at 1-800-544-6855, if you have any further questions. Our office hours are from 7 am to 9 pm Central Standard Time, Monday - Friday. We will be happy to help you answer any questions concerning our product.

    The answer from Edward id not right. Bryan did not understand question. If he is educated then he will send your question to QA department.

Contains wheat, soy L20-3 - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    I answered this question several times. For Schnucks bread and buns to be Halal it must have a kosher symbol on the package. Since it is a midwest supermarket do not carry kosher symbol. So you have to contact Schnuck to find out whether all fat based dough conditioners are obtained from vegetable fat. If they wrote you then you can use all bread and bun if they do not contain any dairy ingredients and flavor.
