  • 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. Sincerely, Bryan Consumer Affairs Is it okay to consume the Edwards Georgia Pecan pie? JazakAllah khair for your help Assalamoalaikum - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    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. He  answered wrongly. e did not mentioned about no alcohol in flavor. Please send the question again and ask them I need the answer from QA or Technical department not from consumer department

    Some companies used artificial flavor to immitate the bacon flavor by using all chemical. Since bacon is not a Muslim food. So Muslims should not touch even if artificial bacon flavor is used.

The ingredients are: unbleached enriched wheat flour (wheat flour, malted barley flour, niacin, iron, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), water, corn syrup, yeast, Contains 2% or less of the following: soybean oil, salt, wheat gluten, honey, dough conditioners (monoglycerides, datem, ascorbic acid, calcium peroxide), calcium propionate (to retain freshness), soy flour, Yeast nutrients (monocalcium phosphate, calcium sulfate, calcium carbonate, ammonium sulfate), wheat starch, soy lecithin. 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.

    New Title Description Date
    Garcinia Cambogia Extract in Weight Loss Medicines

    Garcinia Cambogia Extract is obtained through water extraction of fruits of Garcinia Cambogia which is grown in India. This extract has hydroxycitric acid (HCA) which prohibits the activities of enzyme Citrate lyase.

    Citrate lyase enzyme in our body convert extra carbohydrates into fat. Even if you do not eat fat  in the diet and consumed lot carbohydrates then Citrate lyase enzyme converts extra carbohydrates into fat so your lipid level in the blood will go up.

    This is the reason this Hydroxycitric acid from Garcinia Cambogia Extract is used in weight loss medicines.

    100% Garcinia Cambogia Extract is a Halal extract because water is used to extract it from fruits of the tree but in capsule or in tablet form it may be not available as 100%.

    Garcinia Cambogia Extract is reported as toxic in the medical literature. Garcinia cambogia extract is available in capsules too which may be made from pork gelatin.

    The active ingredient in Garcinia cambogia extract is Hydroxycitric acid but the capsules or tablets may also contain inactive ingredients which may not be Halal.

  • Alsalam alaikom, I read about lactose in the ingredients section. But still has a leak of information. Please correct my below marked conclusions points individually: (so I can understand and educated) 1- if lactose from milk then halal if the living animal is halal like kettle or bovine, cow,... 2- if lactose from whey then halal if whey either form milk or from zabiha animal or acid whey or microbial rennet.(Really I do not know the whey sources excuse my unknowledgeable). - ahmed
  • AOA

    Milk without added vitamins from cow or goat is Halal by nature. But it does not mean product made from milk has to be Halal because additional  ingredients are added to to milk which is reported and some are hidden not reported in the ingredients statement. If these added ingredients used to make diffeerent dairy product or ingredients are not Halal then all those dairy ingredients will not be Halal although mill originally used was Halal. Muslims has to stopped assuming that any product made from milk is Halal because milk is Halal. From ou 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.

    What is Lactose:

    Lactose is a milk sugar. It is a disaccharide carbohydrate that is a part of milk. It functions as a flow agent, humectants, crystallization control agent and sweetener.

    It is commercially obtained from rennet whey and its Halal requirements are the same as rennet whey. Lactose is also used in medicine.

    MCG considers Lactose Halal only if it is Halal or Kosher certified.
