    haram Trident Gums   Chewing Gums Trident Hi Rasheed, Thank you for visiting http://www.snackworks.com/. I wanted to get back to you about your ingredient questions. I understand that knowing what ingredients are in the food products you eat directly affect how you practice your religion/dietary lifestyle, and Mondelez International does all that it can to assist its consumers in making educated food decisions. I apologize but unfortunately this ingredient information is not currently available. As you can imagine our products change frequently, and maintaining a list of products for specific dietary practices would be virtually impossible. The suppliers from which we obtain the natural flavoring will not reveal the exact ingredients to us, as they consider it to be proprietary. They only have to reveal if their natural flavoring contains major allergens. Some gums contain gelatin which is made from collagen, a protein that comes from animals used for food, like beef or pork. The exact source of the gelatin used in our products cannot be easily determined because the hide used in our products can be from both beef and pork. When alcohol is used in our products in a significant amount or has a technical effect it will be labeled on the ingredient line. However, if alcohol is present in a minute amount it will not be listed. I appreciate you contacting us. Consumer Services Mondelez International ~~TLXEA_25066145~~N 01-24-15

    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.

  • AsalaamuAlaykum, firstly thank you very much for this service. May Allah bless everyone helping to provide this ease, Ameen. I have a question regarding a passage written on the General Questions section page. I have pasted part of it and it was as follows : "Alcohol is produced through alcoholic fermentation of material containing sugar or starch. Starch first has to breakdown into sugar and sugar is then fermented by yeast which converts it into ethyl alcohol or ethanol and carbon dioxide (CO2). Molasses from sugar cane, beet sugar, wood sugar (sulphite lye), fruits, berries are the raw material used to produce alcohol. Starchy products such as cereal, rice, corn and potato are also used as a raw material to produce alcohol. Alcohol obtained from fermentation is subject to separation, concentration and distillation. The chemical name of alcohol is ethanol and C2H5OH is the chemical formula. So alcohol obtained from above sources has the same chemical formula and has the same quality of providing a sequential depressant action on the central nervous system. There is no chemical and physical difference between alcohols obtained from grape or corn. So the statement that alcohol is Haram only from grape and dates does not hold up scientifically". My question is that would the fact that alcohol is produced after using the yeast and the sugars make those ingredients haram if they (help) produce alcohol, which has the same effect as other alcohols? Does it make items using yeast, sugar, etc, haram? I would really appreciate it if you clarify this for me as these items are a little difficult to avoid sometimes too. Many thanks - Anonymous user

  • Salam aleikum. i am sorry for confusing regarding my question below. I didnt say that i dont speak aboyt USA i speak about my country and i hear rumors and claims that many products are being grown using medicine. Do you know anything about such medicine, can it be haram? JazakAllahu khairan Salam aleikum. I have a question about products that are not due to the season. For example we know that cucumbers and tomatoes are not grown in winter (if i am not mistaken), but our stores are full of them any season of the year. I suspect that to grow them farmers use medicine,Allah knows best. Do you know anything about such medicine, does it contain anything haram or is it bad for our health? Could you please share what you know in shaa Allah? JazakAllahu khairan. - TM AOA It is not true the farmer use medicine. There are some part of USA, they can grow all the time or bring from Mexico and other countries. - TM
  • AOA

     

    I do not know in other country but majority of countries do not use medicine in food product. All crops such as wheat, rice, vegetable grown every part of the world with chemical fertilizer and anti bug spray on them. So many consumers use organic fruits and vegetables where no chemical use to grow it. Fruits and vegetable used in manufacturing food products are not organic but where chemical used to prevent plant disease and to have better yeild. But about of chemical is very minimum.

The contains are : Wholegrain oats 84%, Cereal containing gluten, seeds (pumpkin, sunflower), sultanas (vegetables oils), almonds (tree nuts). Please help us whether this product halal or not. Thank You Regards, Teddy - Teddy
  • Hi

    I am giving the answer from scientific point of view with out Halal or Not Halal status:

    if these are only ingredients used  such as wholegrain oats 84%, Cereal containing gluten, seeds (pumpkin, sunflower), sultanas (vegetables oils), almonds (tree nuts) then it can be use by Muslims and non Muslims but nont Jewish people because it require a Kosher symbol on the package of food for Jewish people to consume it.

  • Following your advice at some other related question regarding Natural Vanilla Flavor, I contacted MARS chocolates to ask them about solvent used to extract vanilla in Snickers chocolate. Below is the reply from MARS "Dear Waqar, Thank you for your recent enquiry regarding the processing aid used to extract natural vanilla, used in some of our Mars chocolate products. In answer to your question we can confirm the following: · The processing aid used is Ethanol and is commonly used throughout the food industry. · Ethanol completely evaporates during the process of extracting the natural vanilla and is not present either in the raw material or our final products. · All ingredients used in the making of Mars chocolates are Halal certified and approved by the GCC Government agencies. We hope this answers your questions" Q1) Do you think the finished product is completely free of alcohol? Q2) I came across this site (http://www.vanillaqueen.com/vanilla-extract-an-insiders-view/) to search what "Natural Vanilla Flavor" is made of. They claim that "Although the Food and Drug Administration only allows vanilla to be called “extract” when it has an alcohol base, there is an alcohol-free substitute. Natural vanilla flavor is made with glycerine and propylene glycol, along with vanilla bean extractives.". When they say "Vanilla bean extractives" do they mean the one extracted with alcohol? - Waqar Mohammad Javaid
  • AOA

    Snicker does not have natural flavor such vanilla. It has artificial flavor which is Vanillin a Halal artificial vanilla flavor. My advise is to you please do not use any chocolate made with natural and artificial flavor because natural flavor is Vanilla.

    It does not matter whether alcohol is evaporate or not it is still not Halal. USDA study about alcohol evaporation, the made a tuna casserole with cooking wine and baked for one hour at 400 degree F. They found 40% of cooking wine or alcohol in tuna casserole. So nobody can claim it will evaporate. For GCC gobts alcohol in minute amount is Halal but not with MCG because we follow this hadith religiously:

     

    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 )

  • AOA

    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

  • AOA

    Alcohol is produced during ripening of fruits such as dates which used heavily 1400 years but dates are not declared Haram. Any alcohol produced naturally in minute amount is Halal.

    Yeast which used to make bread or Nan do not contain alcohol but during proofing or fermebntation it liberate Zymase enzyme which break sugar in to carbon dioxide and alcohol. Even Zymase enzyme from yeast do not contain alcohol. This is natural phenona by Allah. This is the reason our Prophet Sayyidina Mohammed Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallum said dates and fruits and vegetable are Halal. Similarly Nan is Halal at that time. Alcohol was discovered by a Iranian Muslim during the last period of Hajrat Imam Abo Hanifa RA. Before nobody know alcohol in Quamer causes intoxication. Sugar is Halal for centuries and yeast is Halal for centuries.

    The problem comes from man added alcohol to foods such as flavor are made with alcohol. Some ingredients are made alcohol and these thing are not Halal.

    From our Home Page:

    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.

    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.

    NOT ALL ALCOHOL ARE HARAM

    Ethyl alcohol is Haram because of its intoxication quality. But not all alcohol are ethyl alcohol although word alcohol is written with their name. Here are some examples:

    1. Sugar alcohols do not contain ethyl alcohol but they called sugar alcohol because of their chemical formula. Sugar Alcohols or Polyols are carbohydrate(plant source). All the sugar alcohols are Halal except Erythritol(made through alcoholic fermentation) and if Lactittol is made from non Halal whey then it is not Halal. But if Lactitol is made from sucrose then it is Halal.

    2. Benzyl Alcohol is a organic compound and used as solvent in ink, paint, resin coating. It is a Halal alcohol.

    3. Butyl alcohol is not ethyl alcohol and used as solvent in paints

    4. Cetyl alcohol is also not ethyl alcohol but a fatty alcohol or wax and it is Halal only if it is obtained from vegetable fat and it is a Haram ingredient if it is obtained from pork fat. It is used in cosmetic products. The manufacturer of cosmetic is the only one who know the source of cetyl alcohol. So you have to call the manufacturer.

    5. Stearyl Alcohol is manufactured from fat based stearic acid and it is not ethyl alcohol. It is also used in cosmetic products. it is Halal only if it is obtained from vegetable fat based stearic acid and it is a Haram ingredient if it is obtained from pork fat. It is used in cosmetic products. The manufacturer of cosmetic is the only one who know the source of stearyl alcohol. So you have to call the manufacturer.

    Sugar Alcohols

     

    Sugar Alcohols

    Sugar alcohols or Polyols are carbohydrates. Many Muslim consumers has asked us about Halal status of sugar alcohols in Questions and Answers section of our website. We answered them in the above section. So we decided to explain about them in News section of our website. The sugar alcohols are made from plant carbohydrates except Lactitol which can be made from sucrose or whey's lactose or milk sugar  and all the sugar alcohols are Halal  except Erythritol and if Lactittol  is made from non Halal whey then it is not Halal. But if Lactitol is made from sucrose then it is Halal. There is no ethyl alcohol present in them. Alcohol is just the name because of chemical formulas. FDA recognized sugar alcohols as GRAS(Generally Recognized As Safe). Sugar alcohols are not artificial sweeteners technically and slightly lower in calories compare to sugar. The most important use of them is in chewing gums, sugar free candiaes and cookies because they do not cause tooth decay and good for diabetes because on consuming them the blood sugar will not increase. The most important sugar alcohols are Sorbitol or Glucitol, Xylitol, Lactitol, Mannitol, Maltitol, Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysates, Isomalt, . No bone char is used in sugar alcohols as compare to sugar. Sugar alcohols are slow fermented carbohydrate than sugar. Sugar alcohols are not fermented by oral bacteria in mouth, this is determind by FDA through McNail company’s research. Sorbitol, Mannitol, Maltitol and Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysates are manufactured from cornstarch. Xylitol is manufactured from corn cobs, sugar cane bagasse, birch wood waste.

    Lactitol is made from sucrose and whey. When Lactitol is manufactured from sweet whey then we have to be very careful about it. Whey has to be Halal or kosher certified otherwise Lactitol will not be Halal if it is manufactured from sweet whey which is obtained from animal rennet whey. Even if it is obtained from acid whey the starter culture bacteria and starter culture media upon the bacteria grow has to be Halal. If a Halal or kosher symbol appears on a food product package containing Lactitol, it means lactitol is either made from sucrose or Halal or kosher certified whey.

    Erythritol is obtined either cornstarch or fruits through alcoholic fermentation because there is no lactic acid ferementation to be Halal. Sugar alcohol Erythritol is not consider Halal.

    Lactitol is considered as Mushbooh and depond upon the Halal or kosher status of rennet whey and acid whey.

    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 do not follow because does not know how gelatin is made. Please ask him about his opinion about alcohol from this 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 )

    From our Fiqah & Science subsection from FAQ section:

     

    Gelatin

    Gelatin is not the case of Tabdeele Mahiya.

    There is lot of literature available about how gelatin is made, which can be found on the internet. But we have to understand the basic biochemistry of gelatin raw material and gelatin itself. The basic components of collagen (raw material for gelatin) and gelatin itself are the protein and amino acids. If the components of the raw material and finished product is the same, that means the chemical reaction and processing does not cause any changes to the original component. Then it does not become the case for Tabdeele Mahiya.

    • If you run a DNA analysis (nowadays it is used to detect pig by-products in a food product developed by a Florida company as mentioned on our web site) of Type A gelatin (pig) and Pig, you will find no difference. According to Tabdeele Mahiya, it should not match because the new product has to be different.
    • Gelatin is a derived water-soluble protein made by controlled hydrolytic conversion of collagen, the protein constituent of white fibrous connective tissue from animals. The manufacturing process will take out the extraneous material from bones, skin, and hide trimming. Neutralizing, washing and converting the collagen to gelatin occurs but the basic components remain the same.
    • Extensive study has shown that the amino acid (basic component) content of white connective tissue whether from bone, skin or tendon is very uniform and yields gelatins also having uniform amino acid composition. This confirms that no change has occurred in the basic components.
    • The gelatin is subject to hydrolytic breakdown by which it is converted from insoluble macromolecular collagen to water soluble protein.
    • The whole manufacturing process is based on purification and conversion of water insoluble collagen protein to water soluble gelatin. There is no new product, and the originality of gelatin raw material remains the same during manufacturing process.

    Gelatin is not an example of Tabdeele Mahiya. Type A gelatin (pig) is Haram because it still contains the original pig protein and amino acids.

     

    Alcohol from our Ingredients section under Ingredients description:

     

    Alcohol:

    Alcohol (also known as Ethanol or Ethyl Alcohol) is a food but requires no digestion. Like other drugs, it acts on many organs in the body but has no cellular receptors. It is stable in the atmosphere to any chemical change, where as all other foods will undergo some kind of decomposition. It is the only food produced solely by microbial action beside the synthetic alcohol. Alcohol and water mix in every solution, including blood. Once alcohol enters the body, it is easily penetrated into the brain and it will provide a sequential depressant action on the central nervous system. We know this fact from our Holy Book, the Quran, where Allah says: O ye who believe! Draw not near unto prayer when you are in a state of intoxication until you know what you utter (4:43). Use of alcohol in a food product is prohibited.

    Ethanol or alcohol has the quality of making a person drunk. If alcohol is distilled out from wine or beer, a flavored solution is left behind. That solution does not have the same quality as alcohol resulting in the sequential depressant action on the central nervous system. Date juice is allowed to drink before it is fermented as reported in Sahee Bukhari. Thus the prohibition of alcoholic beverages in Islam is due to the presence of alcohol in those beverages. Many Muslim scientists wrote about alcohol in many books and magazines. They all agreed that alcohol is Haram without even mentioning the sources.. Alcohol is produced through alcoholic fermentation of material containing sugar or starch. Starch first has to breakdown into sugar and sugar is then fermented by yeast which converts it into ethyl alcohol or ethanol and carbon dioxide (CO2). Molasses from sugar cane, beet sugar, wood sugar (sulphite lye), fruits, berries are the raw material used to produce alcohol. Starchy products such as cereal, rice, corn and potato are also used as a raw material to produce alcohol. Alcohol obtained from fermentation is subject to separation, concentration and distillation. The chemical name of alcohol is ethanol and C2H5OH is the chemical formula. So alcohol obtained from above sources has the same chemical formula and has the same quality of providing a sequential depressant action on the central nervous system. There is no chemical and physical difference between alcohols obtained from grape or corn. So the statement that alcohol is Haram only from grape and dates does not hold up scientifically.

     

    Please forward above to the Shaik he may learn the science of gelatin and Alcohol.

  • As Salam Alaikum.....I saw that French Curler from Dunkin Donuts is halal....but I just now Jan 31, 2016 asked the Dunking Donuts in my city in Pennsylvania about this product and was told it IS dipped in the SAME glaze as all the other donuts containing "glaze" which MCG has as NOT halal/haram. Is there a different type of french curler donut that IS halal? - Nilda Taveras
  • AOA

    Thanks for bringing this good point.

    I did not mentioned Glazed dipped French Curler. The Halal status of French Curler is based on 100% French Curler. I will add "without Glaze". I did not know they glazed it because I do not eat any thing from Dunkin Donut.

  • I found the code e471 in a Pringles chips pack and at the end of the ingredient it is written that it doesn't contain any beef rennet. - Rehab
  • AOA

    E-Number 471 is not cheese where rennet is used. E471 is a fat based ingredient and it is only Halal if it is made from vegetable fat. From our E-Number section:

    unknown E471 Mono-and Diglycerides of Fatty Acids Emulsifiers and Stabilizers - salts or Esters of Fatty Acids. If the fat source is from soy fat then it is Halal. If it is from pork fat then it is Haram. If it is from non zabiha beef then it is not Halal. If a claim appeared on food package "Suitable for Vegetarian" containing E-Number 471 then it means the E Number 471 is from soy fat. The food product is Halal if all other ingredients are Halal

  • Asalam Alaykum. I will like to commend your efforts in educating the Muslims. I had raised a query before on perfumes containing Alcohol and you responded quoting a hadith from the Book of Ashribah (Book of Drinks). Please note that a perfume is not a drink and a hadith legislating on drinks (intoxicants) cannot be used as evidence against fragrances just because they contain a product that intoxicates. You also mentioned that anyone who prays with a fragrance containing Alchohol, that person's salat will not be accepted. There is no evidence for this in the Sunnah. Note again that Allah only prohibited whatever that intoxicates (meaning whatever you drink that makes you unaware of your actions). This is haram even if taken in small quantity. Alchohol in itself is not prohibited except when drunk in whatever quantity. A fragrance (soap, cream, perfume) does not intoxicate when applied on the body. I have also reconfirmed from my Imam who is knowledgeable in this matters that fragrance containing Alcohol is not haram as it does not intoxicate and it does not affect a person's prayers. I hope you will research further and take this as constructive feedback so Muslims are not misinformed. We should not make haram for ourselves what Allah has not made haram for us. and Allah knows best. - Salahuddin

    When pig is consider Haram and used in food but any part of pig is Haram. Pig oil is prohibited to put on the doors we do not eat door. Pig part can not be used in shoes we do not eat shoes. This is the same way when some thing declared Haram

    in Quran and ahadith it does not mean only food but it means in everything. Since alcohol is a intoxicant and it said in a hadith that all intoxicant are Haram. It does not mean specillay in drink it means in everything including the fragrance.

     

    What is evident is that khamr [alcoholic beverage] is considered najis [impure] in the Four schools:

    1. the Hanafi, as stated in Zuhayli's al-Fiqh al-Islami wa adillatuh (Islamic Law and Its Proofs 6:158) whereby if there is a coin's span of khamr on one's clothing, his salat is invalid because Allah named khamr "a filth of Satan's handiwork, therefore avoid it" (5:90).
    2. the Maliki, as stated by Ibn Rushd in Bidayat al-mujtahid (2:125); also the Risala states, in Chapter 44: "Nothing alcoholic, or ritually impure, or a dead body or something Allah Most High has prohibited can be used for medicinal purposes."
    3. the Shafi`i, whereby khamr is also considered najis as per Nawawi in al-Majmu` 2:569-570 (from Ghazali);
    4. and the same applies in the Hanbali school: Ibn Qudama, al-Mughni (9:152).

  • What is the source of mono and diglycerides in Pillsbury Crescent Dough Sheets? - Ameer Farooqui
  • 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.
