  • Assalamo alikum Is Whey used in krasdale butter halal or not Please what is Whey? In general as Muslim can I eat product cantaining whey or not? Thank you - Charifa
  • AOA

    I have no information. From our FAQ:

    Is Whey a Halal ingredient:

    Muslims think that if whey is a milk based ingredient then it has to be Halal, but this is not true. There are two kinds of whey, one is sweet or rennet whey and the other is acid whey. Acid whey is obtained during the making of acid type cheese such as cottage cheese. Sweet or rennet whey is used more in food products then acid whey. Sweet whey or rennet whey is a by-product of rennet cheese  such as cheddar cheese or Mozzarella cheese. Whey is a portion of milk remaining after coagulation and removal of curd. Whey is Halal only if the Halal starter culture bacteria, Halal medium on which starter culture bacteria are grown (Starter culture bacteria are Halal if they are obtained from milk source not meat source, and media on which these starter culture bacteria are grown. These requirements can only obtained if the cheese and whey are Halal or Kosher certified (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements). A Halal or Kosher symbol (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements) appears on a food package containing whey indicating that it is manufactured under Halal or Kosher supervision. MCG considers Lactose Halal only if it is Halal or Kosher certified.

  • AOA, I asked a question about herrs brand and yeast extract on Oct. 21st and you said to talk to a technical person and the customer service dept does not know anything; you are right about that and that is why I talked with the vendor direcrly. I talked with the supplier of Herrs and they said the yeast extract is grown on molasses. - Hasan
  • AOA

    Look he or she does not know the difference between Yeast an Yeast Extract. Baker Yeast is grown on Molasses but Brewer Yeasr is grown on alcohol. There are two yeast extracts, one from baker yeast which is Halal other is from brewer yeast which is not Halal. Baker yeast extract can not be made from molasses. Extracts are made from yeast by killing the live yeast then punturing yeast cells and take out inside of yeast cell to make yeast extract.

    Ask whther they use baker yeast extract or brewer yeast extract. These customer services people are not technical, they do not want to take pain to ask the technical about the answer.  I spend 35 years working food industry and I know the qualification of consumer service. Even vender has no technical knowledge.

  • Assalaamualaikum brother. Some days ago I had asked you if any manufacturer says that their products meet Halal requirements should one believe them or not. So you replied that we must trust them only if what they say are in a written form. This made me ask you ---why we must not believe them if they say by their mouth? And aslo---is there any evidence from The Holy Quran or Hadees that we must consider only written matter? Jazak Allah. - Syed Muteeb
  • AOA

    You can consume on basis of what they say. The product must have Halal symbol or kosher symbol if it meets Halal requirements to be Halal.

  • AOA

    This is not new to me. These companies telling consumers in USA/Canada that their products are non alcoholic because in order to consider alcoholic they have to meet certain percent of alcohol in them. The source of alcohol in soft drink is natural flavor where alcohol mostly used as a solvent. In order to find out what they are saying you have to send those soft drinks to a outside lab for alcohol analysis like what MCG did found no alcohol in Pepsi but alcohol in Coke and 7UP.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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?
