  • Is red 40 halal or does it contain pork or alcohol? - Fatma
  • AOA

    From our FAQ:

    FD&C yellow No. 5 or FD&C red No. 40 colors

    FD&C yellow No. 5 or FD&C red No. 40 are chemical dyes or lakes and they are Halal if used in pure granular or powder form but if the FD&C colors are required to make it in liquid form then a solvent is needed to make FD&C colors in liquid form. Liquid FD&C colors are used in liquid foods such as soft drinks. Vegetable oil or glycerin is used to make liquid artificial colors. Liquid FD&C colors are Halal only if vegetable oil or soy fat based glycerin is used. If glycerin is obtained from pork fat then liquid FD&+C colors will be Haram. A Halal or Kosher symbol (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements) appears on a food package containing these colors indicates that no pork or beef fat glycerin was used as a solvent

  • Does cheetos contain pork or byproducts - Mendel poole
  • AOA

    From our Alert:

    Why Cheetos and Doritos (except Doritos Toasted Corn Tortilla Chips) are not Halal

    There is no kosher symbol on the package of Cheetos and Doritos. This makes them Non Halal because they can add any Haram Hidden or Processing aid ingredients without mentioning under the ingredients statement. Cheese used in Cheetos and Doritos are not Kosher certified and not Halal. Sine these products are not under Halal or Kosher certification then Frito Lay can use non kosher certified flavors or colors. There is no restriction for Frito Lay to make Cheetos or Doritos on their own lines or on co-packers line where pork containing products are made. This exposes a great possibility of cross contamination of pork containing ingredients. All these snacks are very attractive to adults and children but there is a Hadith which says that Allah will not accept your dua for 40 days if a Muslim eats intentionally a bit of Haram food. So MCG recommend Muslims not consume above snacks.

  • Asalamu alicom At your site you mention that spirit vinegar is halal , Please Sir can you explain the following statement regarding spirit vinegar: In spirit vinegar, the fermentation process is stopped before the bacteria have completely converted all the ethanol (which is always found in very small amounts anyway) into acetic acid. Whereas even a small amount of acetic acid in alcoholic beverages would completely ruin the flavor, the small amount of alcohol left over in spirit vinegar enhances the flavor in some people's opinions. Jazaka allahu kheiran - Mourad Suleiman
  • AOA

    The flavor in Vinegar is not comes from alcohol because alcohol is tasteless. The flavor is comes from from acetic acid  and minor flavor comes from organic compound developed as a result of azeto bacteria's fermentaion of alcohol to acetic acid. FDA has limit of how much a vinegar must contain acetic acid which is measured in grain. Spirit Vinegar is a Halal vinegar.

  • AOA

    First of all non of book of people slaughtered meat is Halal because both have changed their slaughtering method. In a Christian slaughter house a Kafir can slaughter the meat then it will be meat slaughtered by Christian. In kosher meat the Sachet the Rabbi who slaughjtered animals do no say Allah's name on each animal only on first and last animal.

    You should not eat supermarket meat, you should eat any Christian restauarnt such as Chk-fil a restauarnt.

    According to a Hadith Allah will not accept your salat and dua for forty days if you knowngly eat a bid of Haram food.

  • Salam aleikum va rahmatullahi va barakatuhu Recently i read here that some plastics used to wrap food products are made while using pork fat. Do you know which kind of plastics are they? I.e those that are used to wrap meat or chicken or also those that we are given in different stores to put our groceries in or bread or even clothes items? I am now looking at all of them with suspicious eyes and wonder if some of them are actually not of that kind? JazakAllahu khairan Salam aleikum va rahmatullahi va barakatuhu - TM
  • AOA

    From our Alert section:

    TITLE: SLIP AGENTS used in plastic bags may be made from Pork Fat

    Br. Irfan a Muslim consumer brought to us the question about use of animal fat based Slip Agents in plastic bags manufacturing.

    Slip Agents is used in plastic, polymer to reduce friction between polymer surface, processing equipments, machine ability. Slip agents are the special additives that improve mach inability of such thin plastic products. Polyolefins are the largest candidate for packaging films that are typically thin and are used on packaging machines, making them the major user of slip agents. Slip behavior of plastic product depends upon the type of polymer.

    Amides are non-migratory slip additives. Erucamide (a waxy solid) or Oleamide  which is a an amide of fatty acid Oleic Acid or other fat based material such as Fatty Acid Amide which could be animal fat based such as pork or vegetable fat based, and resin as a carrier.

    MCG is recommending the Muslims consumers to use only those food products packed in film or plastic bags which has a Halal or Kosher symbol on them because Halal or Kosher certification looks the components of the film or plastic before Halal or Kosher certify them.

  • Salamun Aleykum 1- can you tell me which are the halal and not harmful preservative i can use for my homemade products like lotions? Can you give me names because i cant trust searching online.2- Also can you tell me is non nano zinc oxide or nano zinc oxide is better to use if we are praying and we want water to reach our skin when we take wudu? Thank you jazakAllah Khairan. - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    1. Halal preservatives are:

    Alum, Benoic Acid, Calcium Propionate, Propionic Acid.

    2. Zinc Oxide is a combination of one atom of Zinc metal and one atom of Oxygen.

    You should not use Zinc Oxide because it is not soluble in water because Zinc is a metal.

    A nanoparticle is a particle smaller than 100 nanometers, or 100 billionths of a meter. Defining whether a powder is non-nano or not is actually rather difficult as it is virtually impossible to ensure that a product is 100% nanoparticle free. Furthermore, many particles are not spherical in shape and thus are difficult to measure.

    • The US FDA has declined to weigh in on this controversial issue and does not currently define 'nano' or 'non-nano.’
    • In the EU, a nanomaterial is defined as “a natural, incidental or manufactured material containing particles, in an unbound state or as an aggregate or as an agglomerate and where, for 50% or more of the particles in the number size distribution, one or more external dimensions is in the size range 1nm – 100nm."

  • AsalaamuAlaykum I have a question about cheese please. I am from England and there is a brand called Cathedral City. I emailed them asking about their ingredients and they said: "I can advise that the only ingredients in our cheese are milk, salt, starter culture and vegetarian rennet". It says Suitable for vegetarians but I wasn't sure what starter culture was. Please could you tell me if this is halal or if I need to ask them anything else? Thank you. - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    FRom our FAQ:

    CHEESES AND ITS HALAL STATUS:

    The following things have to be Halal in order for a cheese to be considered Halal: 1. Ingredients used to make the Mother Starter Culture growth Media ((if whey used, it has to be made from non animal rennet, Lactose is also from non animal rennet, yeast extract has to be from baker’s yeast, starter culture growth media has to be kosher certified). 2. Ingredients used to make the Bulk Starter Culture growth Media ((if whey used, it has to be made from non animal rennet, Lactose is also from non animal rennet, yeast extract has to be from baker’s yeast, bulk starter culture media has to be kosher certified). 3. Starter Bacterial culture are Halal if they obtained from milk source and not from meat source, usually in practice they obtained from milk. 4. Milk Coagulating Enzyme, such as Microbial rennet used to coagulate milk or Rennet obtained from Zabiha slaughtered calves (not available in USA and Canada) and has to be kosher certified 5. Fat Hydrolyzing Enzyme, such as Microbial Lipases has to be kosher certified 6. Dairy ingredients such as Non Fat dry milk solid or cream or dry milk or whey protein concentrate if added has to be kosher certified 7. Artificial color such as artificial blue or green color is added to neutralize natural yellow color in curd for Asiago or Blue cheese has to be kosher certified 8. Media to grow mold Penicillium roquefortti providing blue color in blue cheese has to kosher certified 9. Harmless plant based enzyme is if added for curing or flavor development and growth media for biological curing agent used on the surface of Brick cheese has to be kosher certified 10. Flavoring, hydrolyzed lactose, whey for cold packed cheese food is allowed in cream cheese but most manufacturer use gums. 11. Cheese must be Kosher certified and the kosher certification must meet the Halal requirements with exception cheese used on pizza, in that case cheese does not have to be kosher certified but if they used kosher certified starter culture bacteria, media and enzyme then meet above requirements then it is consider Halal. Cheese if Halal certified by other Halal certifying organizations must meet above criteria and if above criteria used for Halal certification then it must display on their websites otherwise MCG will not consider their Halal certified cheese as Halal.

     

    The starter Culture bacteria has to be obtained from mik source and I do not think it will be obtained from animal source, media may be without whey or yeast extract it could be 100% milk. So you can consume it.

    From our FAQ:

    Glycerin:

    Glycerin is a fat based ingredients used in foods and non food products. Since it is a fat based ingredient so it is either obtained from animal fat such as pork or beef or it is obtained from vegetable fat. Only vegetable fat based Glycerin is Halal or it is Halal if there is a Kosher symbol on the food package containing glycerin which means glycerin the food is obtained from vegetable fat. In the case of non food product only manufacturer knows its source.

  • Aoa i have a question can u plz tell me that organic vally parmesan cheese is halal? ther is no kosher symbol on this but in ingredient they write vegtarain enzymes. can you plz tell me can i use it or not - saba
  • AOA

    In order for a cheese is to be Halal it must Halal or kosher symbol on the package which protect Muslims from adding Haram hidden ingredients. Vegetarian enzyme does not mean it is Halal. There are many requirement for Halal cheese.

    From our FAQ:

    CHEESES AND ITS HALAL STATUS:

    The following things have to be Halal in order for a cheese to be considered Halal: 1. Ingredients used to make the Mother Starter Culture growth Media ((if whey used, it has to be made from non animal rennet, Lactose is also from non animal rennet, yeast extract has to be from baker’s yeast, starter culture growth media has to be kosher certified). 2. Ingredients used to make the Bulk Starter Culture growth Media ((if whey used, it has to be made from non animal rennet, Lactose is also from non animal rennet, yeast extract has to be from baker’s yeast, bulk starter culture media has to be kosher certified). 3. Starter Bacterial culture are Halal if they obtained from milk source and not from meat source, usually in practice they obtained from milk. 4. Milk Coagulating Enzyme, such as Microbial rennet used to coagulate milk or Rennet obtained from Zabiha slaughtered calves (not available in USA and Canada) and has to be kosher certified 5. Fat Hydrolyzing Enzyme, such as Microbial Lipases has to be kosher certified 6. Dairy ingredients such as Non Fat dry milk solid or cream or dry milk or whey protein concentrate if added has to be kosher certified 7. Artificial color such as artificial blue or green color is added to neutralize natural yellow color in curd for Asiago or Blue cheese has to be kosher certified 8. Media to grow mold Penicillium roquefortti providing blue color in blue cheese has to kosher certified 9. Harmless plant based enzyme is if added for curing or flavor development and growth media for biological curing agent used on the surface of Brick cheese has to be kosher certified 10. Flavoring, hydrolyzed lactose, whey for cold packed cheese food is allowed in cream cheese but most manufacturer use gums. 11. Cheese must be Kosher certified and the kosher certification must meet the Halal requirements with exception cheese used on pizza, in that case cheese does not have to be kosher certified but if they used kosher certified starter culture bacteria, media and enzyme then meet above requirements then it is consider Halal. Cheese if Halal certified by other Halal certifying organizations must meet above criteria and if above criteria used for Halal certification then it must display on their websites otherwise MCG will not consider their Halal certified cheese as Halal.

    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 Kirkland Signature and Herballife. They are not Halal because they are not Kosher certified or do not have a Kosher symbol on the package (if Kosher certification meets the Halal requirements because not every Kosher certified food product is Halal).

    Even if they do not contain gelatin, they are still not Halal because they add without restriction any Haram hidden ingredient as hidden ingredient. 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.

     

    Please avoid food products, vitamins containing Softgel

    All softgel products are made with gelatin. Most of the time the gelatin used in softgel is from pork because it is cheap gelatin in USA.

    Gelatin in any food product or ingredient or Vitamins or medicine is not Halal unless it says Fish Gelatin under ingredients statement in USA and Canada

    The important point is none of the gelatin carrying food products or ingredients or vitamins are Halal unless it says fish gelatin under ingredients statement. The use of fish gelatin in foods in USA is on rise because of demand by Muslim consumers and Jewish consumers. It is important to know that the fish gelatin from cat fish is not consider Halal or Kosher because of fish mouth.

  • I had emailed you previously regarding the status of Mango frooti From Parle in India and raised a point to verify the validity of your support for it being halal had given all the ingredients and green dot visibility as well but in response what i receive is that MCG Halal status is based on a e-mail from brother Syed: Brother N Syed has send this e-mail from India to MCG: Dear Navdel, Yes, it is product of India & it does not contain alcohol. It is non alcoholic ready to serve beverage. For any further query, please write back to us. Best Regards, Manoj Sawant Parle Agro Pvt. Ltd. Mumbai, India but its mentioned on your site that flavours should also not be alcohol driven so i presume there is a difference in drink being alcoholic or its flavour driven from ethyl something...idk anyways please look into this or else you can at least give me the email id of navdel (the one upon whom you are relying) so that i may discuss it with him - Syed Areeb
  • AOA

    Please read this below we ask all Muslim consumers to send this message of inquiry about hidden in alcohol to food manufacturer because they are the only one who know whether alcohol is added as hidden ingredient to flavor or not. Br. Syed same question to Parle and he got the answer that no alcohol is used in flavor. Flavor can be made without alcohol. So if companies said no alcohol in flavor then the flavor is Halal.

     

    " 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".

And it says that peppridge farm gold fish cracker and Kirkland cheese pizza is halal as it contains microbial cheese so it is halal.and they confirmed that by calling their respective representatives...can u please confirm that too!! - Naaz
  • AOA

    Please do not use Halal Scan because they are providing wrong information to Muslims they are not qualified to assign Halal or Haram status to a food product. Ask them what qualification they have to assign the Halal status. They assigning Halal status on the basis of ingredients and inquiry with food companies who do not know Halal criteria.They are only computers engineers not food scientist. None of them has degree in food and they never work in a food plant, they do not know hidden ingredients are used in every food products. They do not no have food scientist on their staff and nor Islamic scholars. How you are going to tust them. They are doing dis service to Muslims.

    Peperidge Farm Gold Fish don not carry Halal or Kosher symbol on the package, the cheese they use is not Halal. Same thing with Kirkland cheese pizza. Cheese Halal status will not decide as Halal because of use of microbial enzyme. The cheese has to be Halal or Kosher certified to be consider Halal because there lot of hidden ingredients are used. You can see Halal requirements of cheese on our FAQ section.

    They do not know the Hadith that a Muslim knownlly eat a bit of Haram food Allah will not accept his prayer and dua for 40 days. So Muslims has to be careful in selecting Halal foods.

    Only mashbooh ingredient is Pectin. If no alcohol is used during processing of pectin then this yogurt is Halal otherwise not. Only manufacturer can answer the question. There are many Halal plain yogurt in USA like Muslim owned Chobani, Fago, Stoneyfiled, Danan, La Yogurt.

    If it does not have kosher symbol on the package then it is not Halal. Cheese is only Halal if it carries Halal or Kosher symbol on the package otherwise they can add any Haram hidden ingredients.

    Ask them to provide the kosher certification of their products. Verbal Kosher does not count. It has to have kosher symbol on the package or kosher certification letter.
