Any chemist or technologist understand it. It means the instrument can not detect alcohol in Pepsi.

  • alslam alaykom, could you please correct if any my below understands : 1- Till now only Ethanol,Methanol and Isopropyl alcohol are intoxication(drunk-able) , but others are either toxic or OH chemical base only. 2- Denatured alcohol or Denatured ethanol Alcohol is not intoxication (undrunk-able) but toxic so can be used on skin as perfumes,medicine or lotion. thank you for your kind answer in advance but please correct also if any one got drunk from Denatured Alcohol. - ahmed
  • AOA

    Except Methanol is very toxic causes death if consumed. However, unlike ethanol, methanol is highly toxic and unfit for consumption. It is used to denatured ethyl alcohol in Denatured alcohol used in products which are not consume. Since denatured alcohol is a toxic and can not consume so ulema allowed to use in personal care product.

    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 asked a question about food products manufactured in the Islamic countries in 20-09-14. Sorry for being confused, but may be the answer typewriting was not clear. do you mean " Many Arab countries you mentioned buy food products made with alcohol containing flavors. If they containing alcohol flavors as Haram and have a Halal symbol then you can buy. It does not matter if they are the subsidiary of Big US food companies."? - ahmed
  • AOA

    Believe me, a US food manufacturer told me when I was working for him that they send bakery products to Saudi Arabia which are made with alcohol containing flavors. Suadi Arabia has a limit of 0.05% alcohol in a food product similarly Malaysia and Indonesia also accept food products made with alcohol containing flavors. My advise is to you that living in Islamic country does not mean every thing is Halal. Most Muslim countries accept machine slaughetered chciken when 40 ulema from England declared that machine slaughtered chicken are not Halal. Please avoid any food product with natural or artificial flavor. Please visit our FAQ to find which ingredients are made with alcohol. But our Ulema and our organization do not consider any food product or ingredients amd with alcohol containing flavor as Halal. Please remember this Hadith:

    A little bit of intoxicant/Alcohol is haram too:

    Narrated Aisha, Ummul Muminin RA:

    I heard the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) say: Every intoxicant is forbidden; if a faraq of anything causes intoxication, a handful of it is forbidden. ( Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 26:Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah)

  • al salaam alikom, i am in UAE and i am using "Centrum complete" and i heard it is not halal so i visited their site faqs and found this : http://www.centrum.co.uk/faqs Q: Are Centrum multivitamins halal? A: No. Centrum multivitamins marketed in Europe contain vitamins derived from pig gelatine (pigs are not Halal). Please note that Centrum multivitamins marketed in the Middle East are specifically formulated to be 100% porcine free, in line with local Middle East Board of Health requirements so by this statement is it halal? - ahmed
  • AOA

    If they a Halal symbol then you can use or contact Municipality in UAE for answer. I know Saudi Arabia do not allow any pork containing products but I do not know about UAE. I stopped at Dubai airport for enroute to Malaysia I saw majority of stores are selling wine in a Muslim country so what do you except from them about food products.

    I already told you that it is not a Halal Cup Cakes because it contains Confectionrs Glaze why you have to send two more same question when I already answered it. From our FAQ:

    Confectionery Glaze

    Confectionary Glaze or Resinous Glaze is made from Shellac (Shellac is a insect secretion) which is dissolved in alcohol, and then alcohol is evaporated and glazed on the surface of food products. It is also part of sprinkles on top of bakery products and ice cream. MCG does not consider it as a Halal ingredient because of alcohol.

  • Aoa. I live in Europe and always check each and every ingredient of a food product before purchasing it. Recently, I have noticed one particular ingredient that is present in many biscuits, chocolates and candies. It is 'aroma'. Now, I know that aroma is basically the flavour of a food but I would like to know the halal status of it as I do not know which compound has been used for it. I would really appreciate your help as this particular ingredient holds me back from purchasing many items. - Hafsa
  • AOA

    Aroma is a name of either natural or artificial flavor. It has two component one is flavoring component which has to be from Halal source but if it is obtained from chemicals then it is Halal the second component is carrier or solvent, if alcohol is used as carrier or solvent then it is Haram. Carrier or solvent is the hidden ingredient of Aroma and it will not appear under the ingredients statement. If solvent or carrier is propylene glycol or vegetable oil or dextrose or starch or Maltodextrin then the carrier or solvent is Halal. Only the manufacturer knows the hidden ingredient of Aroma. Number one Halal requirements that it has to say " Suitable For Vegetrian" otherwise it will be not Halal in Europe and it should contains the following ingredients:

    L-Cysteine made from human hair or chicken or duck feathers (4) Wine (5) Liquor (6) Beer batter (7) Rum flavor (8) Ethyl Alcohol or ethanol as a main ingredient (9) Cochineal or Carmine (10) Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce (11) Brewer’s Yeast Extract from byproduct of beer making  (12) Nucleotides (13) Vanilla Extract (14) Wine Vinegar (15) If ethyl alcohol is used as a solvent in natural and artificial flavors (16) Confectionary Glaze or Resinous Glaze (17) Torula Yeast grown on alcohol (18) if Carrageenan is made with ethyl alcohol, (19) Natural Vanilla or Natural Vanilla Flavor(because Alcohol is used in its extraction). 

    In order to find alcohol in Aroma, please write this way:

    " is ethanol or ethyl alcohol used as a solvent in aroma; ethanol or ethyl alcohol is a hidden ingredient or processing aid ingredient of a aroma, it will not appear in the ingredients statement. The knowledge of presence or absence of ethanol or ethyl alcohol in aroma is only known to your QA or Technical service department because they have access to the specification of aroma. In the specification of aroma, your aroma supplier has written  the name of solvent or carrier used in that particular aroma. So please request your QA or Technical service department to find out whether ethanol or ethyl alcohol was used or not in the aroma as a solvent".

  • AOA

    Two thing do not buy any fried battered fish because they also make Beer Battered Fish in the same freyer and in same vegetable oil so beer contaminate all other fried fish. 2nd non zabiha beef extract is not consider Halal by our ulema. The non zabiha beef extract is used in McDonald French Fries this is the reason they are not Halal.
