  • Asalamualaikum this information was recently emailed to me regarding the use of carrageenan in "SO Delicious" dairy free coconut milk. "Hello, I understand your concern, based on various literature available today. All of the carrageenan we use is undegraded or nondegraded which has been proven to not cause any adverse health effects. While we do still stand behind the research we and many other scientific organizations have done, as recently as 2012, we do listen to our consumers. Here is some information I would like to share, from the tests we have done to the latest information on removing carrageenan from our products: We really do take comments from our fans very seriously. As you may know, there are many leading food and health organizations (including the World Health Organization and the National Organic Standards Board) that have reviewed and approved carrageenan for use in organic foods as recently as May 2012. However, our customers told us that they still had concerns about this ingredient, so about a year ago, our team started to proactively assessed the use of carrageenan in some of our products (keep in mind that we do not use it in all of our products – we have an extensive portfolio and many products do not contain carrageenan). Suggestions from our fans propelled our desire to deliver a better product. And for the past year, we have been working very hard on finding alternate solutions and creating new recipes for our coconut milk beverage line to remove the carrageenan. It isn’t always easy work to find the right ingredients to rework our recipes and keep the same great taste that you expect from SO Delicious Dairy Free. We are committed to selecting top quality ingredients and delivering delicious dairy-free options to kitchen tables across the country. We are very pleased with our progress and just this month started sampling our new carrageenan-free recipes with consumers and retailers to get their feedback on our improved coconut milk beverages. We will also be sampling these beverages with food reporters and critics this spring to get their input. In order to replace the carrageenan, current inventories and the packaging of our products need to be managed. We are working on new packaging now, and if everything goes as estimated, we are aiming to have our improved coconut milk recipes in stores by the end of 2013!! I hope this information is helpful for you and that you stay faithful to SO Delicious Dairy Free as we make this transition. If you would like to send us your address, we would be glad to send you a coupon brochure that includes coupons for a variety of our products." - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Even if they take out the Carrageenan the Coconut beverage products are not Halal due to presence of alcohol in natuar flavor and use of alcohol in Stevia Extract. Stevia is not Halal because it is made through alcoholic fermentation.

    haram Stevia Natural Sweetener Natural Sweettener Steviol Glycol is extracted from Stevia plant and crystalized through alcohol.

  • I recently got StarBurst Fruitchews from a relative in USA. NET WT is 14.0 OZ. (396.9 g) One of the ingredients is gelatin. I'm assuming it's obtained from pork. Can you certify if pork or alcohol is used in the making of this product? Is their any ingredient that is not halal? What about it's natural and artificial flavours? Is it halal? Please be specific. Also, are other Wrigley JR. Company distributed products haram? - Saniya Khan
  • AOA

    I do not investigate the gelatin source because MCG accept only fish gelatin because even gelatin from non zabiha beef is consider as NOT Halal. So any food product in US with gelatin is not consider Halal.

  • ARE MONO AND DIGLYCERIDE HALAL OR NOT IN COFFEE MATES, ENTEMENS PRODUCTS AND OTHER FOOD PRODUCTS. JAZAK ALLAH HU KHER - HAFIZ KALEEM
  • 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.

  • ASA I contacted Little Caesar about their cheese and they sent me the following email: July 19, 2012 To Whom It May Concern Our standard specification for HNR round cheese pizza complies with the statement below. However, since most of our stores are independently owned and operated franchises, we cannot guarantee the ingredients. Little Caesars pizza is neither Halal nor Kosher certified. However, the cheese used on Little Caesars pizza is made from cows milk, the rennet is microbial and there are no Lipase enzymes used in our pizza cheese. There are no animal by-products in the sauce or dough. Further questions should be forwarded to the Little Caesar Customer Service Center at 1-800-722-3727. Thank you, Little Caesar Customer Service Center Is it okay then? The lady I talked to also said they do not use the L-cytestine enzyme. - Sarah

  • Thank you again, for your responses. I need another answer to something that pesters me, though. I had an item I had just purchased at the store, on the couch. Because after I get back from the store, I usually put the bags there, briefly. It was liquid soap. I opened it to use some. It dawned on me, though, that the bottle was on a cloth, on the couch that my grandmother had washed with her detergent. Since the bottle was on top of it, this doesn't make my soap in any way haram, right? Nothing mixed. Even tough I had laid it on top of cloth that was probably washed with a haram laundry detergent. Things like this bother me. You once told me a halal item and a haram one can touch, so long as theres no mixture/contamination. The bottle was only ON the cloth. Though the bottle was open, nothing was contaminated. Just wanted your point of view. Is haram only when one substance INTERACTS with another? (I'm using the soap on the presumption that since nothing mixed with it, it's ok) Thanks again for your time As salam alaikum - OpenEyes
  • AOA

    Yes, the Halal and Haram should not mix togather.

  • Aoa, please can you let me know why shellac is halal. I understand that it is an insect secretion, could you please explain how insect secretion is halal because I am slightly confused. Also, is there a possibility that parts of the insect could be in the ingredient. I am interested in buying a product that contains confectioners' glaze. When I asked the company, they said that alcohol is not used in the manfufactring process but it contains shellac. Would this product be considered halal if all other ingredients are halal? Another question regarding shellac, when I asked some companies about whether their products are suitable for vegerarians, they said it is not because it contains shellac. This has confused me slightly. Again, if no alcohol is used and all other ingredients are halal would it be halal because I have been avoiding these products. Why would it not be suitable for vegetarians if shellac is used and why is it considered halal? Jzk, I appreciate your help as I am confused over this matter - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Suitable for vegetarian means nothing from animal or even insect. Since Shellac is a insect secretion and comes from insects so it will not consider suitable for vegetarian. Honey bees carries in their mouth the flower necter and deposit on honey comb but honey is consider as Halal. Similarly the silk is the secretion of insect and silk is Halal. Shellac in USA dissolve in alcohol and I do not know about it in UK. We do not what qulaity Control methods used by the shellac manufacturer in India so presence inmsects part is depend upon the company method of taking shellac from tree.

  • As salam alaikum: I share a house with my Grandmother. I usually try to buy fresh vegetables and fruits, so I shop, like, every other day. I'm going to start using one of the bottom sections of the refrigerator for my groceries. I haven't used that section in a while. Last time I used it, I think I used Bounty paper towels to clean it out, when you considered them haram. Anyway, to make a long query short, what disinfectant or soap would MCG suggest I use to clean that section out for MY groceries? Thank you for your time As salam alaikum - OpenEyes
  • AOA

FOR EXAMPLE THEY USE E631 IN "LAYS CHIPS" WHICH IS EXTRACTED FROM PIG(AND STILL THEY PROUDLY USES VEGETARIAN LOGO-THIS IS A FRAUD WITH MUSLIMS). AND EVEN I CAME TO KNOW THAT COLD DRINKS LIKE(PEPSI , COCA COLA) HAVE A VERY SMALL FRACTION OF ALCOHOL IN IT---DOES THIS MAKES IT HARAM? I EVEN CAME TO KNOW THAT THE PERCENTAGE OF SUCH NON-HALAL INGREDIENTS IS VERY SMALL THAT IS WHY THEY CLAIM IT TO BE HALAL BUT SIR THIS SHOULD NOT BE DONE. I WILL BE HIGHLY OBLIGED TO YOU IF YOU RECOMMEND ME A WEBSITE WHICH TELL PEOPLE IN INDIA THAT WHICH PRODUCT IS HALAL OR HARAM. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.PLEASE DEEPLY INVESTIGATE THIS MATTER FOR INDIAN MUSLIM AS FOR OTHER PARTS OF WORLD AS IN U.S.A.

  • As-salam alaykum. i'm somewhat aware of the issues surrounding the ingredient "natural and artificial flavors" but on my box of pop corn it reads "natural and artificial flavors [milk]" is this halal? please respond soon and thank you. - vaqas rehman
  • AOA

    Any flavor has two parts, one flavoring part and second is solvent part. In this case the flavoring part is obtained from milk source but still alcohol can be used as solvent part. So it is not Halal.

Once again, thank you so much for taking your precious time to read my question. Salaam. - zohair

    First thing it should have a kosher symbol on it and second thing is alcohol is always used in natural and artificial flavor. This is not a Halal chocolate.

  • AOA

     

    Red 40 & Yellow 5 are chemical dyes, lakes and they are Halal if used as powder or granular forms but if they have to use as liquid then vegetable oil or glycerin is added as a solvent. Glycerin can be made from pork or beef or vegetable fat. Only vegetable fat based glycerin is Halal.

    A kosher symbol such as U or K  on any food package containing red 40 or yellow 5 indicates that either Red 40 or Yellow 5 is used either as a dry powder or if it is used as in liquid form in the product then vegetable oil or vegetable fat based glycerin was used as a solvent.

    Whey and its Halal Status

    Muslims think that whey is milk based ingredient, it has to be Halal but answer is no. There are two kinds of whey, one is sweet or rennet whey and 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 making 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 obtained from milk source not meat source and media on which these starter culture bacteria grown has to be made from Halal ingredients such milk). 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 indicates that it is manufactured under Halal or Kosher supervision. Acid Whey which is obtained from cottage has the same Halal requirements as cheddar or Mozzarella cheese except rennet is not used but starter cultures are added and they have to be from milk source not meat source. Starter culture requirement for acid whey is same cheddar or Mozzarella cheese.

    Halal Vanillin is used as Artificial Flavor in Mars Products

     

     HALAL VANILLIN IS USED AS A ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR IN ALL MARS SNACK PRODUCTS

    Halal vanillin without Alcohol is used as artificial flavor in all Mars snack products. This information was provided by a Muslim Consumer from New Jersey. Then MCG called the Mars to verify the statement. Mars told MCG that only vanillin is used as artificial flavor in their product. MCG asked about the natural flavor then Mars informed us that natural vanilla flavor is used as natural flavor. The reference number for MCG call was 011388761A.

    Natural vanilla flavor is obtained from vanilla beans by using alcohol and water as extracting solvents, so MCG do not consider this natural vanilla flavor as Halal.

  • AOA

    Resinouse Glaze or Confectionary Glaze or Pharmaceutical Glaze are not Halal because they are made with Haram alcohol. From our Alert Section:

     

    Alerts:

    The Alert section also deals with food, non food items and any relevant news items. These alerts aware Muslim consumer�s about Halal & Not-Halal status of both food and non food items.

    TITLE: Ingredients of Confectionary Glaze

    Uses of Dewaxed Bleached Shellac in Confectionery

    The main uses of Dewaxed Bleached Shellac in the confectionery industry are for the coating chocolate goods, such as extruded chocolates, chocolate covered nuts and resins, and similar products.

    The bleached shellac coating performs one or more of the following functions:

    • enhances and protects the gloss
    • serves as a barrier to moisture either entering or leaving the confection
    • prevents blocking together
    • extends shelf-life

    Dewaxed Bleached Shellacs dissolved in a specially denature alcohol are the glazes employed for confectionery by the pan method. These glazes are also sometimes applied by brush or spray, as in the case of marzipans.

    Solvents

    Pure ethyl alcohol is the usual solvent for shellac for confectionery glazes. But each country has its own special regulations for the denaturing of alcohol, and isopropyl alcohol is also widely used. In the USA alcohol containing 35 percent of shellac is deemed to be denatured.
