  • Salaam, I wish to know what your views are on the Halal Food Authority. They appear to have approved Kellogs cereals so I ate them with confidence. But now I feel uneasy thinking that the HFA may class alcoholic flavourings as halal. The HFA are also helping run the Halal food fesitival so again I don not know if it would be wise to attend. I also want to know what you think about refraining from such flavourings. I have recently contacted many brands and try to refrain from anything that may contain such flavourings. I know it is very difficult and I am worried about having dinner at the home of other muslims who obviously don't worry about alcoholic flavourings. Am I being rude if I don't any food that may contain such flavourings? What should I do if I find myself in such a situation? - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Halal Food Authority is in UK and I do not know their Halal criteria for flavoring. I do not whether they Halal certify food product made from alcohol containing flavor or not.

    I never eat or buy any food product with flavoring. At Indian/Pakistan party I avoid jelling based desert or topping on the dessert. I go to those Muslims who I know buy hand slaughtered zabiha meat. But I eat all Indian/Pakistani made foods which uses Indian/Pakistani Masala. I avoid ice cream but eat Khaeer, Julab Jaman and other Indian Pakistani sweets.

    If you are Indian or Pakistani then you have to avoid above dessert and eat only vegetable curries with Naan or plain rice. Flavoring is used in dessert only not in main dish.

  • Some bread have carrageenan in ingredient but it is kosher so is halal? Also some ice cream has carrageenan and kosher is it halal? And I sent u a question before about carrageenan and u said if it is contain ethyl alcohol it is haram but the wrote only carrageenan in I tridents so how we' ll know ? - Zain
  • AOA

    Carrageenan is not used in bread. Please provide me the name of bread and brand name. Kosher symbol does not consider alcohol as not kosher. Kosher certified products are made alcohol containing flavor and Carrageenan. All ice cream with Kosher symbol with Carrageenan are Mushbooh, you have to investigate with manufacturer whether ethyl alcohol not Isopropyl alcohol is used during processing of Carrageenan.

    Ethyl alcohol alone or Isopropyl alcohol alone or KCL chemical alone can be use be used during processing of Carrageenan. Except Ethyl alcohol all others are Halal. I do not know about Trident gum and it may not be Halal.

  • Assalaamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu, I was wondering if ''Lancashire farm natural probiotic yogurt' made by Pakeeza in the UK is halaal. It is made with bio cultures is gluten free and vegetarian certified and has ''no added ingredients''; however it does list on its packaging it contains added biocultures bifideobacterium bb12 and Lactobacillus acidophilus. JazakAllahu Khairan for your service. - Maryan
  • AOA

    This is from our new book " Food Ingredients and Thier Halal Status" it is available in UK as E-Book, if it contains yeast then it is not Halal. Please conform with manufacturer whether probiotic yeasts were used:

     

    14. Probiotics: The most widely accepted definition of a probiotic is the one suggested by a joint FAO/WHO working Group (2002): Live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amount confer a health benefit on the host.

    The organisms are bacteria such as Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium, Lactococcus, Leuconstoc, Pediococcus, Propionibacterium, Streptococcus, Bacillus and yeast such as Saccharomyces, Schizosaccharomyces, Xantothophyllomyces. From Halal point of view, only probiotic bacteria which perform lactic acid fermentation by producing lactic acid are consider Halal. The probiotic yeasts which perform alcoholic fermentation by producing alcohol are consider not Halal.

    Only manufacturers know what type of probiotic microorganism were used in probiotic foods. Then we have to contact them to verify the Halal status of probiotic microorganism used in the probiotic foods.

  • AOA

    From our ALERT SECTION:

    Some important information about eating in restaurants in USA and Canada

    The following important things should be considered while eating in a regular restaurant in USA and Canada. This is for those Muslims who only eat the Zabiha meat. Most of us go to seafood restaurants to eat fish because it is Halal. But we do not have information on how it is cooked or made. Here are the following things we have to keep in our mind about eating fish dish in a restaurant. Not all fish items in fast foods or restaurants are Halal. Not because of fish itself but due to the following reasons: 1. Coating and batter on the fish: Fried fish items are made with coating or batter. The coating or batter of the fish may contain whey, colors and flavors which may not be Halal. Some fish are dipped in beer batter before frying and it is known as beer battered fish. This is type of fish is Haram. The McDonald and Burger King coating is Halal in USA and Canada. 2. Frying media and fryer: Coated and battered fish items are fried in shortening at 360F. If the coating or batter for fried fish is Halal and if it is fried in vegetable shortening with or without vegetable fat based Mono & Diglycerides then the fried fish is Halal. But if same fryer and vegetable shortening was used to fry non zabiha chicken nuggets OR beer battered fish then fried fish items will not be Halal because of left over batter and fat from the chicken. Burger King's Big Fish and Long John Silver are fried their fish items in the same fryer and vegetable shortening use for frying the non-zabiha chicken nuggets in USA and Canada. This is the reason their fish items are not considered Halal. Same thing may happens in restaurants.Beside Burger King also fried pork patties in the same vegetable oil. So it is necessary to avoid eating fried fish in a restaurants because you do not know the Halal status of the coating and batter and use of vegetable shortening and where they fried. 3.Broiled or Grilled Fish: If the fish is broiled or grilled with cooking wine then it will not be Halal. If the fish is broiled or grilled with AA butter then it will be Halal. Sometimes spices are also added to it, we have to make sure that they used 100% spices not the seasoning because seasoning may contain whey, color and flavors which may not be Halal. 4. Sauce with Broiled or Grilled fish: Most of the time broiled fish or grilled fish comes to the table with different sauces on the top of the fish. Dill Sauce with broiled or grilled Salmon is an example. Dill sauce, Tartar sauce and other sauces contain dairy ingredients which may not be Halal. So you have to avoid it and use salt, pepper, lemon or A1 sauce which is a Halal sauce. 5. Broiled Vegetable: Sometimes bacon or ham is added to vegetables, so ask about them. 6. Rolls/Bread: Rolls/bread and cheese rolls are provided at tables, these rolls and bread are mostly made from frozen dough or mixes. These frozen dough or mixes are made with dough conditioners which may not be Halal. Cheese may be made with animal enzymes. 7. Garden Salad, Salad Dressing and coleslaw: Garden Salad in most of the restaurants comes with croutons, cheese, Chinese noodles, and bacon bits. They all should be avoided because croutons may be made with Romano cheese and other ingredients which may not be Halal. Cheese may not be Halal as well as Chinese noodles. Bacon bits are Haram. Salad dressing is made with cheese, emulsifiers which may not be Halal. You request a garden salad without cheese, croutons, Chinese noodles and bacon bits. Lemon juice or olive oil and distilled white vinegar can be used. Coleslaw is made with cabbage and dressing containing dairy ingredients which may not be Halal. 8. Soups: Soups are made with soup bases and concentrates. These bases and concentrates are made with dairy ingredients which may not be Halal and they also contain non zabiha chicken fat. Left over gravy from cooked meats are used to make a soup. You do not know what kind of meat gray was used. This gravy is provide extra flavor to the soup. Clam Chowder is made with dairy ingredients which may not be Halal and bacon is also added to the clam chowder. Soup has to be avoided. 8. Rice Pilaf: Rice pilaf is always made with non zabiha chicken broth, so it has to be avoided. Steam rice is Halal. 9. Vegetables: Vegetable are sometimes cooked with bacon and ham, so it is necessary to ask ahead of time. 10. Baked Potato/French Fries: The ingredients of French fries in restaurants and the way they fried are not known to public. They may be made with Haram ingredients. They may be fried in animal fat shortening. So they have to be avoided unless you are sure that they are Halal. Baked Potato is Halal but the margarine and sour cream may not be Halal. Sometimes they bring with margarine and sour cream and with bacon on the top of the potato. So either you eat with salt & pepper or with butter if it is AA. If they provide you the sour cream and butter in the small packed container with ingredients statements and kosher symbol and if the kosher certification meet the Halal requirements then you can use it. Eggs for the breakfast: Scramble eggs at restaurants are not 100% eggs but other ingredients such as emulsifires are present. Restauarnts get the eggs in batters from food service company such as Sysco Company, they also supplies egg beaters which is Halal only if no alcohol is used in flavor. It is possible thye fried on the same hot plate as bacon. 12. Dessert: Pies, Cheesecake, Cakes may contain gelatin, liquor, dairy ingredients, flavors and other ingredients which may not be Halal and should be avoided. Ice Cream may contains emulsifiers which may not be Halal and flavor may contain alcohol. NOTE; THIS INFORMATION WAS PUBLISHED ON MARCH 13, 2002 AND WAS AVAILABLE ON OUR OLD WEBSITE FOR MANY YEARS UNTIL OCTOBER 1, 2005. IT WAS LAST DURING CHANGE OVER FROM OLD TO NEW WEBSITE.

  • Vitamin D (Cholecalciferol) Assalamu alaikum. My question is this my prenatal vitamin contains Vitamin D (Cholecalciferol) which is soaked in gelatin during the processing and shipping. So, during the preparation of this product gelatin would be a byproduct and a combination of pork/beef. However, the item contains no added gelatin. This is the item: http://www.21stcenturyvitamins.com/products.asp?i=16&c=5&sc=6 I had called them and was told that the nature of the gelatin left in as a byproduct was a small amount. I need a bit of advice on this product. Is it haram to take? Phone/Toll - Free: (800) 530-2178 Do you mind discussing this with them for me? - Aysha
  • AOA

I feel frusted when I spend so mush time of life even my family memebers always complaint about it to provide Halal aletrnative to Muslim Ummah and it seems some people do not take the advantage of efforts.

All of the dishwashing detergents that I have searched for on this website and other islamic websites don't have any animal ingredients, but they all have an alcohol ingredient. Please help me find any halal dishwashing detergents that have no animal or alcohol ingredients. I have been using the regular dishwashing dtergent untill a relative told me that it isn’t halal and they are not willing to use any dishwashing detergent that is not halal. Also, is it okay to use the regular diswashing detergent that has no animal product but does have the alcohol ingredient? If you are a muslim living in the USA please tell me what kind of detergent you use in your kitchen and for the laundry. If not, please provide me with the best solution and please reply as soon as possible Jazakum Allahu khairan - Um Hussain

  • AOA

    I do not think this website gives you confesusion. The confusion happens when you do not pay attention to the name of the product. There is difference between Nutter Butter Cookies and Nutter Butter Creme Patties with Real Peanut Butter and they are not same cookies both have different product name. Nutter Butter is a cookie and it not Halal because it does not have kosher symbol on the package. On the hand Nutter Butter Creme Patties with peanut butter is a sandwich cookies which is a Halal sandwich cookies.
