  • 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.

  • I bought soy sauce on it written naturally formatted.contains no msg.no gmo.no artificial colouring.IS IT HALAL? - yasirah patel
  • 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.

  • AoA, Thank you for your response on acidophillus. I just have another question. It says suitable for vegetarians on this product. I called Solgar and asked them why this particular product is not kosher certified. She said that the product does not have any animal by-products, its just that the particular plant where the acidophillus is manufactured has not been blessed and certified by a rabbi. My question to you is, can I use this product, considering that we do use other medications that are suitable for vegetarians and are not kosher certified like pain killers and cold and cough medications. If not, do you know any other acidophilus capsules that are halal. Jazak Allah Atiya Haider - Atiya
  • AOA

    Since they claim it is suitable for vegetarian (it is Halal only if no alcohol is used in flavors) they make sure the there will be no cross contamination with any meat ingredients or no animal derived hidden ingredients are used. If there is a kosher certified alternate availble then use the kosher certified one. But if there isno other kosher alternative then you have to use for health reasons.

  • Salam, I read this on Kraft Site. Q: Does Kraft 100% Parmesan Grated Cheese qualify as Kosher? A: Kraft 100% Parmesan Grated Cheese is not Kosher. While most/all ingredients used in the production of Kraft 100% Parmesan Grated Cheese are Kosher, the cheese itself has not been classified as Kosher by a rabbinical agency. http://www.kraftcanada.com/en/Products/P-R/Kraft100ParmesanGratedCheese.aspx - Toufiq Yakoob
  • AOA

    The answer is write but they do not elaborte that many other cheese companies makes Kraft Parmesan cheese which are not Kosher certified. Kraft own plant makes kosher certified starter culture bacteria and rennet. When I was working for Kraft in 2011 one of Muslim plant manager ask me to visit the Kraft culture plant but I did not have time. But I will not recommend to use Kraft Parmesan cheese because of cross contamination.

Ingredients used to make the Mother Starter Culture growth Media ((if whey used, it has to be made from non animal rennet, Lactose is also from non animal rennet, yeast extract has to be from baker’s yeast). 2. Ingredients used to make the Bulk Starter Culture growth Media ((if whey used, it has to be made from non animal rennet, Lactose is also from non animal rennet, yeast extract has to be from baker’s yeast). 3. Starter Bacterial culture are Halal if they obtained from milk source and not from meat source, usually in practice they obtained from milk. 4.

Harmless plant based enzyme is added for curing or flavor development and growth media for biological curing agent used on the surface of Brick cheese 10. Flavoring, hydrolyzed lactose, whey for cold packed cheese food, gelatin(if it is used then it is not Halal) is allowed in cream cheese but most manufacturer use gums instead of gelatin. 11. Cheese must be Kosher certified(if kosher certification meets Halal requirements) or the starter culture bacteria, rennet, media upon which the culture bacteria grows has to be kosher certified or use of microbial rennet or Lipase or whey is made from using culture bacteria obtained from milk source, microbial rennet or milk is used as a media.

  • Assalaamu'Alaikum... Alhamdulillaah.. I pray to Allah subhaanahu wa ta'aalaa that he blesses the team behind MCG... Lately i have started to build my body since i was a little overweight.. i realised the importance of supplements... This is my little research...(May Allah forgive me) 1) For fish oil/Omega 3, i zeroed in on Omegavia-pharmaceutical grade. (http://www.omegavia.com/the-omegavia-difference/) kindly click on the "view the ingredients" on the middle right hand side on the webpage wherein the product label can be viewed and if we observe on the bottom left hand corner of the product label it says "Kosher and Halal certified", Kindly let me know if this product is Halal. 2)For the multi-vitamins, i zeroed in on Solgar Iron-Free Formula VM-75® Tablets, since i dont need to take iron as a supplement. i understand and i did notice that on your homepage you have mentioned Solgar's Formula V VM 75 Multivitamins with chelated mineral Veg Cap, but since it has iron in it i chose Solgar Iron-Free Formula VM-75® Tablets. i observed that both are KOF-Kosher 1250. Kindly let me know if this is Halal. 3)Kindly let me know or suggest me a good halal Tonalin CLA...(i think it stands for Conjugated Linoleic Acid). 4)Kindly let me know or suggest me a good halal Raspberry Ketone product.. 5)i went through the difference of opinion(which is welcome in Islam) about the Ifanca's halal certification you had with regards to the ultimate nutrition Prostar 100% whey protein natural flavour. i would like to know your opinion on the halal status of these products which intrigued me ..(http://www.optimumnutrition.com/products/natural-products-c-11.html) .. a)Optimum Nutrition's Natural 100% Whey Gold standard Protein. b)Optimum Nutrition's Natural 100% Casein. c)Optimum Nutrition's 100% Oats and Whey. Kindly notify me by email also... Jazaakallaah Khairan... Thanking You Sincerely, Regards.. - Mfk

    We do not accept IFANCA Halal Certification because their criteria include alcohol as Halal and do not what other Haram ingredients they accept as Halal. To us alcohol is Haram. So I will not recommend any IFANCA certified food products or vitamins.Solgar Kosher Formula VM-75 Iron Free Multiple Vitamins with Chelated Minerals 180 Tablets are Halal.

     

    You should not buy Omegavia fish oil because it is made with kosher gelatin, the glaze they used is made of shellack dissolved in alcohol  and I run Halal under search, it shows no results.

    Please buy

    Nutri-Supreme Research Kosher CLA from www.koshervitamins.com

    Please buy

    Bio Nutrition Raspberry Ketone Diet Vegetarian Suitable Not Certified Kosher 60 Vegetarian Capsules

    from www.koshervitamins.com because no kosher availble. If Optimum nutrition products are certified by IFANCA then I do not recommend them.

     

    Ingredients

    Pharmaceutical Grade Fish Oil (from Alaskan Whiting and Pollock), Kosher gelatin, glycerin, plant-derived natural food glaze (enteric coating to improve absorption and prevent burps), Natural tocopherols (3 IU of soy-derived Vitamin E for freshness).
