  • Many of drug with capsule use gelatin which extract from pork which is haram.I want a list of drug with capsule made from halal animals. I am a doctor and it is important for me and also for my muslim patients - Isshaq
  • AOA

    Even if the gelatin in capsule from beef then it is still not Halal because it is non zabiha. Some capsules are made from Halal cellulose but you have to investigate with manufacturer. Fish gelatin can not be used in capsule because fish gelatin is weak.

    The best advise you can give to your patients as a Muslim doctor is to ask them to open the capsule and dump the powder medicine on apple sauce consume the medicine and throughout the pork gelatin capsule. You also investigate if powder medicine inside the capsule contain any pork derived ingredients such Magneium Stearate a fat based ingredient is used to for free flow and avoid lumping of powder.

  • does the soy sauce product of yamama contains ethanol? - saada omeish
  • AOA

    From our FAQ:

    What are the ingredients of Haram Soy Sauce:

    The Naturally Brewed Soy is the Haram soy sauce. It is made just like wine containing 2-3% alcohol. The ingredients list contains Wheat, Soy and other ingredients. Food companies do not mention Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce under the ingredients statement. They just mention soy sauce but within parenthesis they write Wheat and Soy. This is the only way to find a Haram Soy Sauce.

    What are the ingredients of Halal Soy Sauce:

    All purpose soy sauce or non naturally brewed soy sauce is a Halal soy sauce made from water, salt, hydrolyzed soy protein, corn syrup and sodium benzoate. La Choy All Purpose Soy sauce is a Halal Soy Sauce.

  • AOA. I wanted to know that what is whey? How is it obtained? Is it halal or not? Should one consume or avoid products that have whey listed as an ingredient? And how can one verify if whey is halal or kosher in a product? Jazak'Allah khair. - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    From our Ingredients section:

    Whey and its Halal Status:

    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 of 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.

  • AOA

    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.

  • Assalamualikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatahu br pls read this article As New Scientist reports , we know that the waterproof barrier is found in a thin layer of fat found between the outermost layers of skin cells. A team at Sweden's Karolinska Institute led by Lars Norlén spent months shaving layers of skin off of volunteers and flash-freezing the tissue samples at -140° C in an attempt to keep the fat cells in their original positions and make it possible to study them up close. After a lot of trial and error and many failed attempts, the team has been able to get a slice thin enough to reveal the inner workings of the skin's waterproof boundary. New Scientist explains: Lipids have a hydrophilic (water-attracting) head and two hydrophobic (water-repelling) tails. Normally, the two tails point in the same direction, giving the molecule a hairpin-like appearance. A group of lipid molecules typically arrange themselves into a two-layered sheet – or bilayer – with all of the tails pointing inwards. However, the lipid molecules in between the cells of the stratum corneum are splayed outwards so that the two tails of each molecule point in opposite directions. These lipid molecules are stacked on top of one another in an alternating fashion. "By stretching out like this they form a more condensed structure which is much more impermeable than a normal bilayer," says Norlén. This uniquely structured fatty layer prevents any water from getting past in either direction – except where the skin layer is modified to form pores. Qs 1)Is our skin impermeable even to water. Is this theory or article wrong give reasons - Mohammed Abdullah Farooqui
  • AOA

    Our skin is permeamable to any thing. Please do not think any skin care product with pork or alcohol is permissible.

  • AOA

    Wikipedia will not decide status but it will give how it is made. It has to have a kosher symbol on the package no alcohol developed during fermentaion. I advise to stay from it because we do not know they made in USA.

  • Assalamualaykum, i emailed the company ostlers cider mill reguarding their apple cider vinegar and they replied as follows, is it halaal? Hello Mrs Fara, My vinegar starts as just apple juice made from whole Devonshire apples. It then ferments and turns into cider. You then let air get to the cider which turns the alcohol into acetic acid. The whole process takes about three years. So just to be awkward, yes it's made from apple juice and yes that apple juice does ferment, this is the natural way to make vinegar and as I would only make my vinegar naturally I would be unaware if there was a method of making it another way (perhaps the cheaper ones from concentrate and pasteurised?) but it is about two and a half years after the product has fermented that it becomes the vinegar that I sell. Hope this helps. - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    It is not a Halal vinegar. Cider in UK is a fermented apple juice but cider in USA is non fermented apple juice so cider vinegar is Halal in USA but not in UK.

The knowledge of presence or absence of ethanol or ethyl alcohol in orange flavor is only known to your QA or Technical service department because they have access to the specification of orange flavors.

    If they say no alcohol is used in orange flavor as a solvent then it is Halal.

  • AOA

    It is not Halal.

    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.

    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.

  • Bismiillah I remember talking to someone from MCG on the phone about a cereal. I think at the end he said something from which i understood that anything with artificial flavor is not okay. Please tell me if i understood wrong. BarikAllahufeekum - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Natural Flavor or Artificial flavor in cereal or any product with kosher symbol on the package is Halal only if no alcohol was used as hidden ingredient in natural or artificial flavor. Vanillin or artificial vanilla flavor is Halal because no alcohol is used.

    From Ingredients section:

    Natural or Artificial Flavor:

    In order for a natural or artificial flavor to be Halal, it has to be made from Halal flavoring material and a Halal solvent such as vegetable oil or propylene glycol. If ethyl alcohol is used as a solvent then MCG will not consider it as Halal according to the MCG Islamic scholars. If a Kosher symbol (which meets the Islamic dietary requirements) appears on a food package containing natural or artificial flavor, this indicates that it is manufactured from Halal flavoring material but ethyl alcohol may or may not be used as a solvent. It requires further investigation from food manufacturer to confirm that no alcohol is used as a solvent. Only food manufacturers know whether alcohol is used as a solvent or not in natural or artificial flavor.
