  • As salamualakum, I would like to know if there are any halal dishwashing detergents in the USA. 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

  • are nutter butter cookies halal or haram? because i searched on your website, and it says both halal and haram? please explain if regular nutter butter cookies are halal or not since your website is confusing me a little - Anonymous user
  • 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.

  • Is OPTIMUM NUTRITION WHEY PROTEIN halal? I read most of the whey products are halal, is it true? - Noman
  • AOA

    You got wrong information on whey. Optimum Whey is not Halal because it is not kosher certified.

    From our Ingredients section:

     

    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.

  • Assalamualaikum, I have contacted Hershey to know if there is alcohol in there milk chocolate chips. By The Way, I saw that its halal on your website. But this is what they said! Thank you for getting back to us about our HERSHEY'S Milk Chocolate CHIPITS Baking Chips. The artificial flavor is vanillin. Our vanillin does not contain alcohol. Alcohol is used as a processing agent and is removed. Have a sweet day, Susan Harris Consumer Representative Do you think it halal?, as they do use alcohol in there processing agent? Please Reply ASAP. One Advice: Don't say if the product has a Kosher symbol as Halal, because Jews do drink alcohol, and eat pork. And also Rasullullah S.A.W has said that we must not follow any other religious beliefs or copy or follow what they do. So according this Hadith stop saying kosher symbol means the product doesn't contain alcohol or animal products!!! Please update your website, remove KOSHER,,,,! Thank You - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    From our ALERT section and I advice you to read both ALERT and NEWS section of our website so that I do not have to reply to your question because the answer is already under ALERT section:

     

    TITLE: Hershey's E-Mail regarding alcohol used as a processing aid confusing Muslim consumers

    MCG wrote this e-mail to clarify their statement regarding alcohol and the consumer department told MCG that they will look and get back to MCG:

    Hi Mr. MCguire,
     
    Nice to talk to on the phone. The e-mail below is causing lot of confusion among our 8-10 million Muslim consumers who do not consume any food product made with ethyl alcohol. To me the e-mail is missing the "in flavors" after processing agent. Because ethyl alcohol alone never used as a processing aid or hidden ingredient in chocolate and it has no technical effect during processing.
     
    If you correct the e-mail this way then our consumer will not have any confusion:
     
    " Thank you for contacting Hershey

    All the products you mentioned contain vanillin. Our vanillin does not contain alcohol. Alcohol is used as a processing agent in flavors and is removed.

    Have a sweet day,

    Susan Harris
    Consumer Representative"
     
    Please forward this suggestion to your QA or Technical or legal department.

I asked if their extracts contain or are extracted from alcohol. And this is their reply. Please tell me if it is a sufficient reply. "The extracts used in the Renpure Argan Oil Luxurious Conditioner: Hypnea Musciformis Extract (Red Seaweed) Gellidiela Acerosa Extract (Red Alga) Sarassum Filipendula Extract (Brown Seaweed) are all extracted via a patented "ripening" process utilizing the same ripening process to express the "Extract" that the plant would naturally use during it's own ripening.

  • Thank you for your last response. Today, I purchased Irish Spring Original Body Wash. I read about it on your site in the personal care section. I also purchased Irish Spring bar soap. Just want your clear verification, here: BOTH Irish Spring Body Wash (Original) & Irish Spring Bar Soap (Original) are halal, correct? And forgive me for seeming like a dummy, here, but after your 2 responses to my query about Palmolive orange scented dishwashing soap, I'm still not clear as to whether you regard it as permissable. Give me a one word answer, please Palmolive orange scented dishwashing soap - Halal or haram? Thank you, again As salam alaikum - OpenEyes
  •   AOA

    I already said to you that you can use Colgate Palmolive Orange Scented diswashing liquid.

    We never assign Halal status to any non food products because they are not Halal kosher certified but we recommend to use them or not use them based on presence or absence of animal by product.

  • Salam alaikum, I emailed you about Wellesley apple butter before but I'm still not certain about the product. The ingredients are: pure apple juice, pure apple sauce, bicarbonate of soda, and cinnamon. There is no kosher symbol but I emailed the company and they said "...our process does not use alcohol or animal by-products either. Although we have looked into the certification, we process 100 % pure grape juice several times per year and it presents a challenge for us to get Kosher certification..." I was wondering if it was still halal, jazakallah khair - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    It does not matter what they said but presence of apple juice in any product require a kosher certification. Since it does not have kosher symbol so it is not consider as Halal due to MCG Halal criteria.

  • As-Salamu `Alaikum, I hope you are in the best of health and Iman. May Allah reward you with khayr for this website, which is a brilliant resource for us in this age. My question is regarding the ingredients in Snickers bar in UK. Ingredients for Snickers bars differ in the UK vs the US. The UK version lists the following, which are not on the US ingredients label: glucose syrup, vegetable fat, skimmed milk powder instead of skimmed milk, cocoa mass, demineralized whey powder, *natural vanilla extract*, hydrolyzed milk protein. The US ingredients label includes the following which are not on the UK label: lactose, corn syrup, butter, milk fat, and partially hydrogenated soybean oil. As natural vanilla extract is haram, will it be right to consider Snickers bar in UK to be Haram too, based on the presence of natural vanilla extract in it? Jazakallahu Khairan for your time and efforts. Was-Salaam - Abdul Samad
  • AOA

    Natural Vanilla Extract a flavoring prepared from vanilla beans macerated in alcohol both in USA and UK, percentatge of alcohol in vanilla extract may be differe in both country. Since it is made with Vanilla Extract. Snicker in UK will not consider as Halal.

  • See, we're goin' back and forth on this. Someone on your site called me back and explained to me the soap (Palmolive ultra-antibacterial orange scented dishwashing liquid) was halal. I explained to them, the gentleman I spoke with, that repesented Colgate-Palmolive told me the "alcohol" that was present was called FD3A, but it was a"plant derivitive".If it's a PLANT DERIVITIVE how are you, and why are you considering it NOT halal? Over the phone, you or your repesentitive told me as long as it had the kosher certification, it was ok. WELL, IT HAS THE KOSHER CERTIFICATION This stuff is nitpicking. Must we go this deep, as to identifying the actual source of the fd3a? I'm not eating or drinking it. When your site says that Palmolive is halal (10/5/12), your saying just regular plain Palmolive? No "scented" or anything? Clarify that. If you still got my number, you can call me,as soon as possible, because the only soap I have and am using right now is the orange scented Palmolive. - OpenEyes
  • AOA

    There is no ingredients such as FD3A. You might wrote wrong because it contains SD 3A Alcohol which is a Specillay Denatured Alcohol 3A, the Ethyl alcohol is denatured with chemicals so that nobody can drink alcohol. MCG consider SD Alcohol as Halal if used in non foodproducts such as diswashing liquid. It also contains fragrance which may or may not contain alcohol because it is a hidden ingredient of fragrance. Any how, you are using to wash dishes, after its use and rinsinsing with several times with water, wash all diswashing liquid . No ingredients of diswashing will left over. So you can use to wash your dishes.

  • is it true that farmists mix pig skin oil in yellow 5 and some other colors carry it too? I called a manufacturer they said they use soy and sunflower oil. I think they have chemists. But the farmist, I heard might mix pig oil in the colors, maybe later on after the chemist. Could you help me I tried to find out but without any success. - baig
  • AOA

    There is no such thing as pig oil.

     

    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.

  • AOA

    It is a Haram soy Suace.

     

    What are the ingredients of Haram Soy Sauce. From our FAQ. if You could check FAQ then you do not have to write this question.

    The Naturally Brewed Soy is the Haram soy sauce. It is made just like wine containing 2-3% alcohol. The ingredients list contains Wheat, Soy and other ingredients. Food companies do not mention Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce under the ingredients statement. They just mention soy sauce but within parenthesis they write Wheat and Soy. This is the only way to find a Haram Soy Sauce.

    What are the ingredients of Halal Soy Sauce

    All purpose soy sauce or non naturally brewed soy sauce is a Halal soy sauce made from water, salt, hydrolyzed soy protein, corn syrup and sodium benzoate. La Choy All Purpose Soy sauce is a Halal Soy Sauce.
