  • AOA

    Please do not use it because it could be Haram.

    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

    MCG is receiving many inquiries about gelatin foods or ingredients or in vitamins whether it is Halal or not.

    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. Food companies have booths at IFT Food Expo in July 2013 in Chicago promoting use of fish gelatin. It is important to know the fish gelatin from cat fish is not consider Halal or Kosher. Beta Carotene suppliers use fish gelatin as  a processing aid ingredient or hidden ingredient in Beta Carotene powder form so that it mixes well with other ingredients and fish gelatin is not mentioned under ingredients list.

  • Is kroger ice cream halal or not? it has Mono and Diglycerides. - Amal Ali
  • AOA

    If kroger ice cream has a kosher symbol on the package and contains no flavor, carrageenan, vanilla, vanilla extract then they are Halal otherwise not.

    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.

  • Assalaamualaikum brother. Just one day ago, you replied me----"Every fruits, vegetable, during bread fermentation developed alcohol which is consider Halal but man added alcohol is Haram". So I wanted to ask you----why Pepsi and 7up are not Halal? Their manufacturer says that they do not add alcohol but the alcohol occurs naturally in them. See brother, they are not adding alcohol which meet the Halal requirement stated by MSG and you. And also they say that they are free from animal derivatives. This also meet Halal requirements. Only prohibited alcohol is the one extracted from Grapes or Dates according to Hadees. Jazak Allah. - Syed Muteeb
  • AOA

    There is no alcohol listed under the ingredients list that is why they said they add no alcohol but alcohol is the hidden ingredient of flavor if they use alcohol as solvent in the flavor. Some companies do not use alcohol as a solvent in flavor. We send pepsi, coke and 7 up to outside lab for alcohol analysis paying $1200 to do the test. The lab reported no alcohol in pepsi but they found alcohol in coke and 7 up. 7 up company said in e-mail they use alcohol in flavor. None of the natural ingredients in all three is source of alcohol except natural flavor. Natural flavor is not natural ingredient it is man made ingredient so they can add alcohol to it. Please do not trust them how come alcohol showed in coke and 7 up. Nobody knows the source of alcohol except the suppliers of natural flavors. The hadith is about quamer not alcohol. The hadith says if quamer is made from grape and date then it is Haram. Alcohol was not discovered at that time. Quamer is made lot of things beside alcohol. Nobody knows at that time that the intoxication is from alcohol of quamer. There are ahadith about intoxication.

    Coke and 7 Up are not Halal according to MCG crieria. Pepsi is Halal. It is true that there is no ingredients obtained from animal source because the pepsi and coke concentrate are kosher certified.

  • 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.
