  • is the ingredient mono-disclycries halal - Imani
  • AOA

    From our FAQ:

    What is Mono and Diglycerides:

    Mono and Diglycerides are fat based emulsifier and are made by reacting glycerol (fat based) with fats and oils. Mono and diglycerides can be made from beef, pork, or soybean fat. Only soybean or zabiha slaughtered cow fat based Mono and Diglyceries are Halal. A Halal or Kosher symbol (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements) on a food package containing Mono and Diglycerides indicates that it is obtained from soybean fat. In the absence of Halal or Kosher symbol on the package Muslim consumers should contact the manufacturer to find out the source of Mono & Diglycerides

  • I really appreciate your efforts for the ummah. I wanted to bring to your knowledge regarding smartphone app called "Halal Scan" which is really getting famous and lots of muslims depend upon it. I request you to tag team with them for larger benefit of ummah. No one visits your website now a days rather rely upon Halal Scan results. Jazakallah - ali anwar
  • AOA

    Have not read about Scan Halal on our Alert section, if Muslims using them then they are bringing Not Halal Foods to their homes because they are mis leading Muslims. They have no qualification to assign Halal status because they do not know, they are just computer guys depend on ingredients of food products. Alhumdulillah it does not have any effect on the trafic of our website.

    Inshalla MCG is coming with a better Halal Food APP which includes Halal food products from your local supermarkets and Scan Halal do not have that data.

    Alert TitleDescriptionDate
    Use of Scan Halal APP is not recommended for Muslims otherwise Muslims will be bringing Non Halal Foods to their Homes

    MCG do not recommends Muslims to use Scan Halal APP because they recommend Non Halal foods as Halal. They are doing disservice to Ummah by charging money to Muslims to eat Non Halal  foods.

    MCG went through the Scan Halal APP and found that many food products assigned as Halal are actually they are not Halal at all. For example:

    1. Classic Coca Cola has given green circle which means Halal when MCG spend money to send Coca Cola, Pepsi and 7UP to a outside lab to perform Alcohol. The outside lab detected alcohol in Coca Cola and & 7UP but not in Pepsi. Alcohol is a intoxicant and Haram. From a 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)

    Narrated Umm Salamah RA, Ummul Muminin RA:

    The Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) forbade every intoxicant and everything which produces languidness. (Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 28:Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah) 3678 ).

    2. Alcohol is also use in many natural and artificial flavor, the Scan Halal has given Halal status to many food products which are made with alcohol containing flavor.

    3. Halal status was given to Kraft Free Ranch Salad Dressing. All Kraft Salad Dressings are not Halal because they are not Halal or Kosher certified. Bacon containing Kraft Salad Dressings are made on the same line where Kraft Free Ranch Salad Dressing is made. So there is cross contamination with Bacon. Br. Rasheed Ahmed has worked under Kraft Salad Dressing Department for his project for Kraft BBQ Sauces at same pilot plant where both Salad Dressing and BBQ Sauces are made at Kraft R & D Center in Glenview, IL. He knows that the Kraft Salad Dressing are not Halal because they do not use Kosher certified ingredients and pork bacon is also used in Kraft Salad Dressing.

    Scan Halal does not have this knowledge and experience at Kraft Foods.

    4. Halal status was given to Cheetos Nacho Cheese. Again Cheetos are not under Halal or Kosher certification.

    5. No consideration was given to processing aid or Hidden ingredients used in many products listed as Halal.

    6. Scan Halal is not managed by food science professionals.

  • Assalamu 'alaykum brother, Alhamdulillah, we have found your website to be very useful and have been trying to be quite careful with the presence of alcohol in food. We have contacted our local halal certification authority (we live in Australia) regarding the presence of alcohol, but their response has confused us. Can you please clarify the following for us, if possible: Our question to them was: Assalamu 'alaykum, I was hoping you could please clarify for me the position of the X on alcohol in food. I understand that some authorities certify products containing minute amounts of alcohol as halal. Similarly, some authorities deem the presence of alcohol during the production process (which later disappears) as being fine. Their response was the following: First of all you must know that Alcohol is a term that covers many ingredients. The only Alcohol that is forbidden in Islam is Ethanol, all other alcohols do not make you drunk and therefore Halal. Methanol is made from ethanol and petrolium ingredients to make it unpalatable and therefore not used in food or drinks. The adding of ethanol to food or drink is absolutely Haram and therefore forbidden. If a product has had ethanol developing naturally in the food and can not be tasted the food is Halal, for example when you squeeze an orange and leave it for a few minutes ethanol starts to develop but it can not be tasted. However if you leave it for a few days it continues to ferment and the amount of ethanol renders it sour. This can be tasted and therefore Haram. A ripe peach or pear may have ethanol develops naturally in it but unless it is sour, the fruit remains Halal. As you can see the issue of ethanol is not a cut and dry and one should look at all aspects. What Halal certifiers declare as Halal is Halal to consume as the onus is on the organisation that certified it however if you can taste the ethanol you must not consume the product even if certified. Also you must then contact the organisation and point out your findings. I hope the above has cleared for you the issue of ethanol. - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Whoever wrote is right he is brought the instruction from our Prophet Sayyidina Mohammed Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallum instructed to Muslims at that time that fresh juice from fruits can not be keep for long time.

    All ripe fruits and vegetable contain a very little amount of alcohol naturally produced due to ripening process, this alcohol in fruits and vegetables is Halal, same way alcohol is developed from yeast in baking naan and bread during fermentaion is also Halal. The problem comes from when man add alcohol to foods and natural or artificial flavor. This added alcohol is Haram no mater it is evaporte or not evaporate. If the Australian Halal certifying organizations (I meet one or two in Turkey) follow above rules then their Halal certification is good. Ethanol or ethyl alcohol and Isopropyl alcohol if remained in the ingredients or food is not Halal. If Isopropyl alcohol used during processing of ingredients such as Pectin, Carrageenan and taken out completly then those ingredients are Halal. Isopropyl alcohol is a intoxicant. He is right there are some other alcohosl such as cetyl alcohol which is not a alcohol but a fatty wax, it is only Halal if it is made from vegetable fat.

    Now a days all fruit juices are made with pasteurizeationto kill bacteria or yeast who causes fermentation so they can be kept in refrigerator for months without fermentaion. But if you smell alcoholic smell or sour taste then you to through out.

    Many Halal certifying organizations in USA, Canada and other part of the world Halal certify food products which are made with alcohol containing flavor. Some gave a bogus percentage 0.005% alcohol in the food product as Halal. There is no hadith which says such a percenrtage of intoxicant is Halal.

    Youi can use this type question asking the manufacturer in Australia whether they use alcohol in flavor or not:

     

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

    There are Halal certifiers like us in the world who do not Halal certify any food products made with  alcohol containing flavor or alcohol used during processing.
