  • I don't know which category this post/question would be filed under, or if I\'m even asking the right group. I can\'t be the only person on here who experiences this: When I go to the supermarket, primarily the bread and cheese sections, there always seems to be some non-halal item touching up against a halal item. Or touching up against a halal item thats touching the one I wanna buy. Now, the only bread I purchase is Toufayyan whole wheat pitas. But as you\'ve informed me before, the L-cystiene in some of their breads, is considered haram, based on where they get it from. But in the section where these breads are sold, sometimes, there piled ON TOP OF one another. Same can be said for the Shop Rite cheeses. Sometimes the non-kosher cheeses are all squished up against the kosher cheese packages. Is this really an issue, or am I makin\' a bigger deal of it than it actually is? It would seem unfair to me if the foods would be considered haram because of a non-believers apathy or carelessness toward our beliefs. If I'm asking the wrong group about this issue, please, then, direct me toward the right one. Thank you once again for putting up with me in my queries. Please respond. As salam alaikum - Iwantmycoffee

  • Salam alaikum I recieved on facebook a post from a friend of frito lay items that don't have pork enzyems and was wondering if that now meant that cheetos are halal? Shukran http://www.fritolay.com/your-health/us-products-made-without-porcine-enzymes.html - Angelic Hamdi
  • AOA

    The most important thing the Fritay Lays has to do to make all their cheese containing products kosher certified unles they do not do this all cheese containing products remained "Not Halal" because Halal or Kosher symbol protect Muslims from Haram Hidden ingredients in cheese containg products. The color and Flavors has to be kosher certified even if they make cheese with microbial enzyme. Fritay Lay or any food companies never told Muslim consumers the Halal status of hidden ingredunts. So you have to wait untill Cheetose are kosher certified. I does not matter if they wrote on their website no pork enzyme are used. The problem for Fritay, most of their products are made by co-packers and those copacker make pork containing cheese on the same line for other food companies. So there is always cross contamination with cheese made with pork enzyme. The plants has to be kosher certified. Enzyme is not only thing in cheese decide its Halal status. Others things has to be Halal. From ingredients section our website:

     

    CHEESES AND ITS HALAL STATUS

    The following things have to be Halal in order for a cheese to be considered Halal: 1. 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. Milk Coagulating Enzyme, such as Microbial rennet used to coagulate milk or Rennet obtained from Zabiha slaughtered calves 5. Fat Hydrolyzing Enzyme, such as Microbial Lipases 6. Dairy ingredients such as Non Fat dry milk solid or cream or dry milk added 7. Artificial color such as artificial blue or green color is added to neutralize natural yellow color in curd for Asiago or Blue cheese 8. Media to grow mold Penicillium roquefortti providing blue color in blue cheese 9. 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.

  • Assalamu 'Alaykum Brother, Can you please tell me if this product is halal? It's Chapli kabob Masala from back home, Pakistan. I think the name of the brand is National. Basically, I wanted to know if E621 Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) that is present in the product is fine. The product also states that it is halal, but I just wanted to make sure. After reading the description of the ingredient on your website, I became a little concerned especially since it is from back home. Jazakahllah - Anonymous user

  • Assalam Walaikum i got the response from Nestle about the natural flavorings June 13, 2012 Dear Ms. Islam, Thank you for taking the time to contact Nestlé® Coffee-mate® Non-Dairy Creamer regarding the alcohol content of our product. We welcome questions and comments from loyal consumers such as yourself and appreciate this opportunity to assist you. You are correct that natural vanilla is obtained by alcohol extraction. In fact, there are FDA standards of identity for vanilla extract. However, all of the flavors used in Coffee-mate are dry flavors so any alcohol will be removed during the drying process. At Nestlé, we are dedicated to you and your family throughout every phase of your lives. Your feedback is valuable to us, as it helps us to improve our products and services. We appreciate your interest in our products and hope you will visit our website often for the latest information on our products and promotions. Sincerely, Beverly Watson Consumer Response Representative Ref #:19997486 If its dried, isn't it still haram? - Shakila Islam
  • AOA

    Thanks I already it on our ALERT section yesterday and recommended to Muslims not use any Coffe Mate products both powder and liquid because what they are doing is buying flavors from their flavor suppliers in dry form so the supplier is spray drying the liquid flavors made with alcohol for the claim "No Alcohol" in flavor. We do not know which flavor has alcohol which do not except natural vanilla flavor. It is better stay away from Coffee Mate because we are not sure flavor original has alcohol or not. When liquid flavor is made with alcohol then dried still they are not Halal according to our ulema who said any Halal thing touches alcohol it became not Halal.

  • Hi i asked you earlier about the ingredient :"flavors" of cadbury, which is not clear on the wrapper for one to tell it is halal or not. you said if it is from us it's haram from india halal. Honestly ichecked the packaging and it did'nt clearly tell where it was made. this is weird nowadays on several chocolates they don;t mention that. On cadbury dairy milk it was written the product originates from uk, on cadbury hazelnut nothing as much mentioned, and these products are atleast cadbury hazelnut are sold by cadbury-mena, which is actually kraft's arabia. Now do you have any clue. - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    I know Kraft bought the Cadbury andI have no information about it in UK or India. But suggest you to see a green dot on the package and it should have vanillin not the flavor to be Halal.

  • AOA

    Sara Lee baking company was bought by Bimbo and we have put list of Halal Sara lee bread which are good for USA. If a bakery is not under kosher certification then there will be no kosher symbol on Sara Lee bread. It is mostly in Northeast and Florida has kosher symbol on Sara Lee breads.

  • AOA

    It does not mean Halal. No pork does not mean Halal because Muslims do not know what Haram hidden ingredients they put into their products. So Halal or Kosher symbol on the package protect Muslims from adding Haram hidden ingredients.

We do not know whether the flavors and extract obtained from Halal source or not. There is no information about presence or absence of alcohol in flavor and no information about hidden ingredients because it is not kosher certified.

And do u exactly know about land o lake heavy whipping cream...it has carrageenan in my area but no flavor.. I cannot find any heavy whip cream that is halal for sure, JazakAllah - Sana
  • AOA

    If the Brocli Stir free has just 100% Brocoli then it is Halal if not then it is nort Halal because lack of kosher certification plus I have to know complete ingredients list.

    I am waiting answer from Land O Lakes abou use of alcohol in Carrgeenan but one consumer wrote on this Q & A that Land O lakes do not use the alcohol in Carrageenan but did not inform which product.

  • AOA

    It is very rare Vinegar. Spirit Vinegar in USA is Halal but if in UK if it is made from liquor or wine then it will be not Halal. Jalapeno is a vegetable and it is Halal but I think other ingredients are also used because there will not be spirit vinegar and jalapeno. Cider in UK is Haram because it is made from fermented apple. Cider in USA is Halal because it is crushed apple juice. Hard cider in USA is Haram because it is made with fermented apple. I do not food laws of spirit vinegar in UK.
