  • I'm sorry, I realize this repetitive, but I would like to clarify- what exactly is not halal? The starbucks handmade mocha frappe bought at starbucks itself or the bottled mocha frappe in grocery stores and supermarkets? If the starbucks handmade mocha frappe is not halal, can you please tell me exactly why it is not? JazakAllah Khair - Maryam

    They should answer to belwo question that no alcohol is used in natural or artificial flavor as a solvent. Then in this case it is alcohol free.

     

    The Question about Alcohol in any Flavor

    The question about alcohol in flavor is a tricky one because it is a hidden ingredient of the flavor. If you ask alcohol question to non technical consumer department person of a food company, first they look at the ingredients list of the food product and will find no alcohol is mentioned. Then they will say we do not use alcohol in our products because they do not know the alcohol is a hidden ingredient of the flavor. We request Muslim consumers to use the following phrase when asking or writing the question to consumer department of any food company regarding the presence or absence of alcohol in the flavor of a food product.

    " 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".

  • I understand that any drop of alcohol as an ingredient is haram and I'm sorry if I appeared ignorant asking about it- I did not mean to undermine anyone's effort to eat halal by asking my question. I would also like another clarification regarding alcohol- here muslimconsumer states: "The alcohol level in Coke was 0.0059 or 59 PPM 7 UP has shown higher level of alcohol of 0.048% or 480 PPM. The Pepsi has showed less than 0.001% or less than 10 PPM (Instrument cannot detect less than 0.001% it means zero results. The source of alcohol in soft drinks comes only from natural flavor, all other ingredients do not posses any alcohol." And what I wanted to ask was is it permissible to eat/drink food that has less than .001% alcohol levels like the pepsi above (since the .001% is stated above to refer to zero) ? Also, how can we ask manufactures if a product has less than .001% of any alcohol? JazakAllah Khair - Maryam
  • AOA

    Natural Flavor in Pepsi is not made with alcohol this is the reason it is Halal but MCG has spent $1200 to send soft drink analysis. If some company mentio ned it it means they are guesing otherwise they say our alcohol analytical analysis shows it contain less than 0.001% statunf the the machine can not read less than 0.001% alcohol. In thta case it is considered Halal but less than 001% is not a green light to consume food product if they are just geesing.

  • I emailed starbucks again, and for their mocha frappe that can be bought at the coffee shop, they replied with: "I understand your inquiry if the Mocha Frappuccino contains ethanol or ethyl alcohol. I would be concerned as well. I have reviewed the ingredients and included a list below of the ingredients in the Mocha Frappuccino. I hope this helps. Have a good day! Mocha: Sugar, Cocoa (processed with alkali 13%), Potassium Sorbate (preservative E202), Artificial Flavor Mocha Powder: Sugar, Cocoa (processed with alkali), Vanillin (an artificial flavor)." and for the bottled mocha frappe they said: I am sorry to hear of the concerns you have with pectin being used in the Frappuccino Mocha. Unfortunately, we're not able to share this information because it is proprietary. I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause." But on here, in the food products list, the mocha frappe is listed halal if bought at supermarkets. Does this refer to the bottled mocha frappe or the handmade mocha frappe? And which supermarkets carry it? Regular & Light Mocha Frappuccino, Coffee Frappuccino Coffee Drinks Coffee Drink Starbuck Available in supermarkets not at coffee shops. 03-21-10 So would the mocha frappe handmade by the barista at starbucks be halal? Also, would the bottled mocha frappe drink be musbooh because of the questionable source of pectin? - Maryam

  • Assalam o Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu Ramadan Mubarak. I hope this reaches you in good health. May Allah grant you Jannah. Ameen I have recently checked the Fritolay website, and they say that they have removed the pork enzymes from their cheese. Their is a list of Fritolay products on the Fritolay website that no longer have pork in them. I stopped eating Doritos because they had pork in the cheese, but that may have been removed. Same with Cheetos. Your decree of Cheetos being haram was made in 2010, but the Fritolay website was updated in June 2015. I urge you to find out if they are still haram ASAP. Please update your website if they are no longer haram, because although the pork enzymes are gone, other animal or alcohol enzymes could be in there. So to summarize, are Cheetos and Doritos still haram? And if so, which ones are halal? JazakaAllah Khair - Manal Malik
  • Walaikum Salam

    Ramdan Mubarak,

    Removing pork from Frito Lay products does not mean Halal. The product has to have a kosher symbol and should not contain the following ingredients. Kosher symbol protect Muslims from adding Haram Hidden Ingredients.

    1) Gelatin (2) Kosher Gelatin (3) L-Cysteine made from human hair or chicken or duck feathers (4) Wine (5) Liquor (6) Beer batter (7) Rum flavor (8) Ethyl Alcohol or ethanol as a main ingredient (9) Cochineal or Carmine (10) Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce (11) Brewer’s Yeast Extract from byproduct of beer making  (12) Nucleotides (13) Vanilla Extract (14) Wine Vinegar (15) If ethyl alcohol is used as a solvent in natural and artificial flavors (16) Confectionary Glaze or Resinous Glaze (17) Torula Yeast grown on alcohol (18) if Carrageenan is made with ethyl alcohol, (19) Natural Vanilla or Natural Vanilla Flavor(because Alcohol is used in its extraction), (20) Any grape wine by-product such grape skin powder, grape seed oil, grape seed extract.

    Mostly pig.

    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.

    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.

  • I have a few questions regarding alcohol in prodcuts 1. Is there really any alcohol on fruits that can be bought at any grocery store? My friend told me everything is purified with alcohol, including fruit, and so it's unavoidable- but when I googled alcohol on fruit, I could not find any information about it. So I would like a clarification, are there certain halal and haram fruits/vegetables? If so, which stores carry them? And can the alcohol be washed off if it is actually there? 2. I called about ice cream once, and was told that if alcohol is a used ingredient that, no matter the product, it will always be listed on the ingredients list. Is this true? If not, then does that mean the alcohol is in the 'natural flavors' or 'artificial flavors' that are listed? 3. If the product does not have the kosher symbol or U or UD, how do you check for alcohol in it besides the ingredients? How do you ask the customer service on the phone- specifically, using what questions? 4. I googled kosher rulings online and I learned that Jews still drink alcohol. So what questions should be still asked about a product even after it has been confirmed kosher? JazakAllah Khair - Maryam
  • AOA

    1.Fruits and vegetable contains very minor amount of alcohol due to natural maturing process and they consider Halal.

    2. 100% wrong, alcohol is the hidden ingredient of natural or artificial flavor. Ice Cream is only Halal if it does not have any flavor and it should have a kosher symbol on the package.

    3. I do not recommend any food product without kosher symbol because the kosher symbol protect Muslims from adding Haram hidden ingredients.

    4. Alcohol is allowed for Jews.

    NOT ALL KOSHER CERTIFIED (NON MEAT) FOOD PRODUCTS ARE HALAL, ONLY THOSE WHO MEET HALAL REQUIREMENTS ARE HALAL

    The Kosher Certified food products are not considered Halal if they contain one of the following ingredient (based on MCG Halal Standard): (1) Gelatin (2) Kosher Gelatin (3) L-Cysteine made from human hair or chicken or duck feathers (4) Wine (5) Liquor (6) Beer batter (7) Rum flavor (8) Ethyl Alcohol or ethanol as a main ingredient (9) Cochineal or Carmine (10) Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce (11) Brewer’s Yeast Extract from byproduct of beer making  (12) Nucleotides (13) Vanilla Extract (14) Wine Vinegar (15) If ethyl alcohol is used as a solvent in natural and artificial flavors (16) Confectionary Glaze or Resinous Glaze (17) Torula Yeast grown on alcohol (18) if Carrageenan is made with ethyl alcohol, (19) Natural Vanilla or Natural Vanilla Flavor(because Alcohol is used in its extraction), (20) Any grape wine by-product such grape skin powder, grape seed oil, grape seed extract.

  • I know that alcohol in a product makes it haram, but in the USA, nearly all products have at least some alcohol in them or have other ingredients extracted with the use of alcohol (which is then evaporated). I wanted to know the percentage of alcohol that Muslims can consume without it be considered haram- for instance, I realize that the alcohol percentage has to be under 1% or it will be haram such as in the case of coke, but what is the exact, maximum % of alcohol that can be in a product and not make it haram? - Maryam
  • AOA

    Islamic Sharia does not care what products are made in USA. This argument does not allow you to consume alcohol containing US foods.

    There is no such percentage of alcohol allowed in Islamic sharia. I am eating for many years US made foods without alcohol. In order to have taqwa you to search for only Halal food products.

    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 )

A complex carbohydrate found in fruits and vegetables. Pectin will form as a gel under the right conditions (high temperature, acid and sugar) this is why it widely used in making jam and jelly. Used as a thickener to provide body to Frappuccino® Coffee Drink. Pectin's molecular structure acts like a mesh-like network that traps water inside, creating a creamy feel to the product" So does this make the starbucks mocha frappe halal? - Maryam
  • AOA

    The information about use of ethanol or Isopropyl alcohol is known to the Pectin manufacturer. So Starbuck does not make Pectin but they buy from other companies. If alcohol used to crystalized pection after extraction then it is evaporated by the company and no alcohol left in pectin but according to Islamic sharia if alcohol is used then evaporated it does not qualify for Halal status.

     

    But if they use Isopropyl alcohol during processing of pectin then pectin became Halal. This they have to find out from their supplier.

  • Salam alaykum I emailed you yesterday regarding the companies response about the flavor in the sour punch candy..... This was the question I submitted to them..... Hello I have a question regarding your products sour punch straws ( all the colors,green blue, red) I want to ask you about the artificial flavor listed on its ingredients list, the question is.... " 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". Please reply as soon as possible, Thank you. And this was their reply 'Thank you for taking the time to contact the American Licorice Company and for your interest in our Sour Punch® brand products. We do not use any alcohol in the manufacturing process of our Sour Punch® products. Please let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns. Best, American Licorice Company - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Please use this for asking question about alcohol in flavor for candy:

    The Question about Alcohol in any Flavor

    The question about alcohol in flavor is a tricky one because it is a hidden ingredient of the flavor. If you ask alcohol question to non technical consumer department person of a food company, first they look at the ingredients list of the food product and will find no alcohol is mentioned. Then they will say we do not use alcohol in our products because they do not know the alcohol is a hidden ingredient of the flavor. We request Muslim consumers to use the following phrase when asking or writing the question to consumer department of any food company regarding the presence or absence of alcohol in the flavor of a food product.

    " 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".

The product has to be labelled as 'Suitable for Vegetarian'. However, based on the answer the company has given me, they have mentioned the product is suitable for vegetarian. Can you please have a look at it again, and let me know? I will paste their response to this inquiry. *****Here are the answers to your questions: 1) No alcohol. 2) No alcohol in the natural flavours. 3) No Castoreum used in our products. Companies looking for cheap alternatives for flavours may include Castoreum. NOT US. 4) No animal flesh is used in Diesel. That's why we list it as vegetarian. The source of Whey is from cow's milk but the animal isn't harmed. Please let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks, Mike***** I will also include the ingredients: Ultra Cross Flow Microfiltered (CFM) New Zealand Whey Protein Isolate, Glutamine, Leucine, Isoleucine, Valine, Taurine, Natural Flavours, Stevia - Haris Ansari

  • is organic vanilla bean speck and organic vanilla flavor halal or haram? - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    They are not Halal.

    From our FAQ:

    Vanilla Bean Specks:

    Vanilla bean specks are made mostly from vanilla bean seeds which are obtained after alcohol extraction of Vanilla Beans for vanilla flavors. The seeds leftover after alcohol extraction are dried and grind to make vanilla bean specks. This is called exhausted Vanilla bean specks in the food industry. Vanilla beans specks without alcohol extraction are very expensive, so many ice cream manufacturers use exhausted types of vanilla bean specks. Our Islamic Scholars consider exhausted vanilla bean specks as not Halal because it is obtained after alcohol extraction. Alcohol is used on vanilla beans to get vanilla flavor and it contaminates the Halal vanilla bean seeds.
