  • Do Ramen Noodles meet the requirements to be Kosher foods. I work in a correctional facility and we have a portion of residents that claim to be on a kosher diet however they also order several packages of Ramen Noodles a week. I am just trying to figure out if they are trying to get an alternative diet because they do not like the main menus or if they are actually following the kosher menu. I just want to make sure they are following religous practices as I feel that is very important - gregory Young
  • Dear Sir,

    Romen Noodles do not meet the Halal requirements not they are kosher certified. They are made with sou sauce which contains alcohol. You ask same question to kosher certifying organization.

  • Assalamu alaikum is NATURAL FLAVOR halal or haram. THANK YOU - dania
  • AOA

    From our FAQ:

     

    Are all natural or artificial flavors Halal?

    No, in order for a natural or artificial flavor to be Halal, it has to be made from Halal flavoring material and a Halal solvent such vegetable oil or propylene glycol. If ethyl alcohol is used as a solvent then MCG will not considered it as Halal according to MCG ulema. If a Kosher symbol (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements) appears on a food package containing natural or artificial flavor indicates that it is manufactured from Halal flavoring material but ethyl alcohol may or may not use as a solvent. It requires further investigation from food manufacturer to confirm that no alcohol is used as a solvent. Only food manufacturer knows whether alcohol is used as a solvent or not in natural or artificial flavor.

  • Dear Brother Assalamu alaikkum as per the fermentation procedure there is pharmaceutical product name is probiotic blend. this is a fermentation process in its Beef extract use for fermentation and centrifuge collect the sediment do pulverition and use as final product of probiotic blend. but final product there is no animal origin. so is it halal for use? - F. Abdul Hannan
  • AOA

    It is not Halal due to use of non zabiha beef:

    Probiotics Bacteria and Yeast

     

     PROBIOTICS

    The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and World Health Organization (WHO) in 2002 define probotics live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a benefit on the host.

    Probotics are friendly bacteria and yeast to our digestive system by improving imbalances in our digestive system and provide health benefit not nutrition. Certain species of Bifidobacterium or Lactobacillus bacteria are probiotic. Starter culture bacteria for cheese and yogurt are Lactobacillus bulgaricus and Streptococcus thermophilus. In addition Lactobacillus acidophilus and Streptococcus lactose are added to yogurts. These bacteria active until yogurt is consume but in cheese the cheese curd is cooked from 90 to 176 F depend upon the type of cheese so they may  or may be active when cheese is consumed.

    Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. boulardii is the only known probiotic yeast.

    Acetate, l(+)-lactate, ethyl alcohol, and formate are end products of fermentation of probiotics Bifidobacterium on glucose, lactose, galactose, mannitol, and xylose.

    Whereas during fermentation of yogurt lactic acid, acetic acid, diacetyl and acetaldehyde are formed and they are all Halal.

    Yakult is dairy fermented drink containing probiotics bacteria in USA manufactured by a Japanese Yakult Honsha Co., Ltd company based in California.

    Although probiotic bacteria and yeast are good bacteria and yeast providing health benefit but they perform alcoholic fermentation where as no alcoholic fermentation happened during yogurt processing. So MCG recommend Halal yogurts over fermented dairy drinks using probiotic bacteria.

    MCG consider fermentation of Probiotics bacteria and yeast is not Halal because of production of alcohol and presence of alcohol in small amount in Probiotics fermented dairy drinks. This is similar to Kefir which contains acid and small amount alcohol and naturally brewed soy sauce which contains 2-3% alcohol.

  • Many infant formulas have been deemed haram by your website on the basis that they contain nucleotides which are produced by yeast that use ethanol as a substrate. Doesn't the same apply for vinegar then? Vinegar, in part, is the transformation of ethanol to acetic acid. By Qiyas, wouldn't the same apply to reactions such as this? If an argument is made that some residual alcohol remains, well then the same argument can be made for vinegar as the reaction isn't 100% complete to the right....residual alcohol does remain. - shaf quadri
  • AOA

    You can not compare Nucleotides with vinegar because vinegar follows Tabdele Mahiya Sharia rules where Nucleotides do not have same process because alcohol will not convert to any thing but evaporate during drying process. Our ulema say if any Halal thing touches alcohol it became not Halal.
