  • Assalamualaikum Brother, I wanted to know about three products which have kosher symbol on it ---- 1) if hershey's premier white chips(creamy vanilla) are halal? One of the ingredients in it is artificial flavor. You have have said that milk chocolate chips are halal in your website. They also have artificial flavor. 2) Is McCormick's imitation vanilla flavor halal? The ingredients for that is water, caramel color, vanillin, ethyl vanillin, and 0.1% potassium sorbate(added as preservative). 3) is PAM's cooking spray (canola oil) halal? The ingredients are canola oil, lecithin from soybeans, phosphated mom- and di-glycerides, dimethyl silicone(for anti foaming), rosemary extract(preservative), propellant. Jazakallah Khair, TA P.S. Did you get a job? - TA
  • AOA

    Hershey Premier White chip is only Halal if no alcohol is used in flavor. Any baking chip with kosher symbol and vanillin is Halal. We give Halal status because it does not contain artificila flavor but it contains Vanillin. McCormic Imitation vanilla Flavor is Halal. Pam Cookis spary is not Halal because the Rosemary Extract is a Haram ingredint because alcohol is used as a extracting solvent. Rosemary Extract is mentioned as not Halal under our Ingredients list.

  • aoa, the archive from langnese As emulsifiers we use mono-and diglycerides a (E 471). They are obtained based on vegetable fats. Theoretically, it is possible to produce these emulsifiers and from animal fats, however, be of animal origin such emulsifiers LANGNESE not used. In some LANGNESE-flavors gelatine is used, which is made from pork ingredients. Gelatin is included only if it is pointed in the ingredients of the product on it. On the topic of alcohol one can say the following: If we confess our ice cream alcohol, then you will find this in the list of ingredients on the package (eg Cremissimo Tiramisu: Marsala wine) declared. Alcohol may also be present in trace if it is naturally present in a product component. Sun fruits or fruit juices have a natural alcohol content (0.1 to 0.4% grape juice, apple juice, 0.1 to 0.3%). Finally, alcohol is a part of the flavors that are included in our products. The flavors are dissolved in alcohol, so that the flavors develop. It is ethanol, which is chemically composed always the same, whether it arises from 'natural fermentation' or produced industrially. Except Calippo Cola which contains 0.1% of the flavoring alcohol in LANGNESE ice less than 0.05% alcohol flavors available. We hope to have this answer your questions adequately. Sincerely yours are they halal to use. - Anonymous user

  • Assalam-o-Alaikum-Wa-Rehmatullah-e-Wa-Barkatahu. I came across many products in Saudi Arabia, which has E621 - Monosodium Glutamate. Since it is Muslim country, certainly the media to make MSG would be halal. But i still have a doubt in my mind. Since these products are distributed in Saudi Arabia and similar Islamic Nations, can we be sure that it is 100% halal and all the food product sold here is "Halal Certified" or is there any other verification that needs to/can be done. Jazakallah - muslima
  • AOA

    In 2005 or 2006 Ajinomonto Indonesia produced MSG with pork fat media from Detroit's Difco Lab (Now owned by BD), I used to use Difco media to detect E-Coli in frozen egg yolk. It was caught by MUI inspector then after this incident Ajinomonto Indonesia, Malaysia, USA and Cananda are Halal. Even Pakistan's Shaan Masala used Halal MCG. Ajinomonto USA's MSG is kosher certified and Halal. Saudi Arabia will not allow any pork by -product in their country. You do not need any verification and it is Halal.

  • Are the solgar, landau and maxi health brands's vitamin b12 tablets halal or not. Also solgar and maxi health's vitamin b12 tablets incude natural cherry flavor is that halal or not. Another question is that all kosher sign medicines are halal or not. 4th question is do we search for the u,d,k symbols for the olive oils and vegetable oils in order to be halal.Thanks a lot - Zuleyha
  • AOA

    The brands you mentioned are only Halal if they carry kosher symbol and no flavor. You do not need kosher symbol for olive oil but need for vegetable oil becaus ethey use Mono & Diglycerides. All medicine with kosher symbol must meet Halal requirments.

  • I have a question.. I bought a soup which comes in a package i believe the product is Knorr but I bought a certian kind one which is called Recipe Mix.. I read the label and I wasn't sure about. It said monosodium glutamate i know that can be some kind of acid or flavor but it also can be a tissue or an animal enzyme. I called the company & the lady said that she wasn't sure it could be and coudn't so if there is anything that am allergic or not allowed from pork & isn't sure about it then she suggested me not to cook it. if you know anything about it please e-mail me as soon as possible. If it's Halal i can cook it if not then I'll have to of course throw it away. - Hayen
  • AOA

    None of Knor soups are Halal because they are not kosher certified and use non zabiha meat. Monsodium Glutamate in USA and Canada is Halal if it is made by Ajinomonto USA.
