  • Asalam U Alaikum, Question 2: it says on your website that Classic Chocolate Ice Cream by Friendly's is halal, but if you look at the comments section, it says that "Yes, the correct answer is that alcohol is used as a solvent in the natural and artificial flavors" . So isn't this haram? but on your website it is marked as halal, why? So is this halal or haram? Jazak Allah Khayr. Thank You. - Muhammad Usman
  • AOA

    "Halal if no alcohol is used in flavor" assignment does not mean it is Hala it requires inquiry with manufacturer to find out whether they use alcohol as a solvent in flavor or not.

  • AOA

    I do not know any one which do not have MSG but

     

    unknown E627 Sodium Guanylate Miscellaneous - Flavour Enhancers. Suitable for vegetarian label on the package indicates the source of Sodium Guanylate is from vegetable source or it has to be under Halal or kosher certification. In USA/Canada it is kosher certified and meet the Halal requirements. Although disodium Guanylate is obtained from fish or seaweed or yeast. But if yeast is grown on pork media then it is Haram. It happened in Indonesia few years back when Monosodium Glutamate is produced using pork fat media to grow yeast by Ajinomonto Indonesia. As it was reported on our website. 09/28/05

  • Salam alaikum, would these 2 cheeses be halal, they are supposed to be flavored but no flavor is listes in the ingredients, the ingredients for both are: CABOT WHITE OAK CHEDDAR and CABOT ALPINE CHEDDAR Pasteurized milk, cheese cultures, salt, enzymes. Contains no animal rennet. I asked the company about the flavor since it is not listed and I didnt understand if its halal from the response, they wrote" Thank you for contacting Cabot regarding our Legacy cheeses. We are always happy to provide you with information that will help you better enjoy Cabot products. To achieve the unique flavors found in our Alpine Cheddar and our White Oak Cheddar we use a particular kind of culture during the cheese making process. The cheese is then naturally aged until the flavor reaches maturity. We do not use additives to alter the flavor. " There is a kosher/halal symbol a crescent with an M the halal cabot cheddar found in the search feature was not available, only these flavored ones were available at the local Jewel. Jazakallah khair - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    As It mentioned in our criteria for Halal cheese, the starter culture used provide flavor and texture so it does not require to add flavor. The starter culture bacteria provide flavor based on their varieties so the pick one which provide flavor close to Alpine and oak. The white word added by the company because the flavor provided by bacteria gave flavor close to oak. You can use these cheese based on Kosher symbol not Halal symbol because Halal certifying organization did not have criteria for Halal cheese like MCG have which match orthodox kosher criteria for kosher cheese.

    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 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.

  • AOA

    unknown E631 Sodium Inosinate Miscellaneous - Flavour Enhancers. In Europe if it is obtained from non alcoholic fermantation by bacteria on sugar or from sugarcane itself then it is Halal but if it is obtained from Torula yeast grown on alcohol then disodium Inosinate is not Halal. It is Halal in USA and Canada. Disodium Inosinate is used in Europe as flavor enhancer used in soups, gravies, sauces, fish and seafoods. Although it is a nucleotide but it is obtained through bacterial non- alcoholic fermantation on sugar or from sugarcane itself. It should not be confused with nucleotide from Torula yeast which grown alcohol or sugar cane which is used in infant baby formula.

  • Assalaamu alaykum, I contacted Britvic, the company which manufactures Pepsi (I believe) and others. I had the following correspondence, please tell me if this is acceptable: Good day/evening, I am enquiring on behalf of Muslims about your products and I need to know the following: 1. Is it true PepsiCo uses pectin from pig/or ingredients from a pig in any of their beverages? (You may have to refer to your technical department, if you do not have the information at hand.) 2. Is it true that PepsiCo uses ethyl alcohol or any type of alcohol as a dis-solvent, a flavour or an ingredient in their products? (You may have to refer to your technical department, if you do not have the information at hand.) Regards, Cya [Removed] Reply 1: Dear [Removed] Thank you for your enquiry. We can confirm that Pepsi does not contain any ingredients derived from animals and is therefore suitable for vegetarians. This statement is also true for other Pepsi products such as Diet Pepsi, Pepsi Max, 7UP, 7UP Free, Mountain Dew Energy, Gatorade 02 Perform, SoBe V Water and SoBe Pure Rush Also we would add that the products are non-alcoholic beverages and fulfil the legal requirements to be defined as such. We do not add alcohol and no alcohol is produced by fermentation during the production of the beverages. We trust the above information will be helpful. Thank you for contacting Britvic. Kind regards, [Removed] My response: Thanks very much. The vegetarian part is very clear, thanks, but please just confirm that you don't use alcohol as a secret ingredient, or as a dis-solvent for your ingredients, or as a flavouring. Ty Response 2: Hi [Removed], Thank you for your enquiry. We can confirm that we do not add any alcohol to our products, there is no alcohol added as a secret ingredient or carrier, and none is produced by fermentation. he only exception to this is Shandy Bass, which at less than 0.5% alcohol, is classed as a soft drink. Kind regards, [Removed] And: Hi [Removed] We can confirm that We do not use alcohol as a secret ingredient or carrier. Kind regards, [Removed] Britvic Consumer Care Advisor So are all there drinks other than Shandy Bass, suitable based on this response? Ty - Muslim
