  • my question is about natural vanilla extract , does all natural vanilla extract contain alcohol someone told me that the fact it states natural means it is ok and does not contain alcohol ,but I am not sure the natural vanilla extract in Tesco Has alcohol. If it does contain alcohol then should we stay away from ALL vanilla based products .There is no way of knowing if every vanilla extract or flavoring used my factories contains alcohol. - nimo
  • AOA

    Whoever said it then it is completely untrue. Natural does not meant Halal. In USA and Canada, Vanilla Extract has legal definition by FDA that it will not call Vanilla Extract unless it must contain minimum 35% of alcohol. It is a Haram natural ingredient. Vanilla Extract is also Haram at England Tesco supermarkets. I do not if you are in England or USA because there isa Tesco in California. Only thing Halal of vanilla is Vanillin which is a artificial flavor does not contain alcohol and it is made from guaiacol and eugenol.

  • 1- You mentioned that food containing pork and labeled K is not halal. How can that be as K means kosher which should not contain pork to begin with. 2- Why is naturally brewed soy is not hala? Brewing is fermentation and is the process used to produce vinegar. Chemically vinegar is fermented sugar which passes through the stage of alcohol. Any vinegar may contain traces of alcohol in ppm or ppt levels. - Maan
  • AOA

    Some liberal kosher certifing organization think the pork changed duringb processing just like some liberal Muslims but actually it remained as is. Naturally Brewed soy sauce is just made like wine containing 2-3$ alcohol. Vinegar if made from dilute alcohol then there is no fermentaion in it. But if its made from sugar containing juices such apple then those juices has to convert to alcohol by yeast fermentation then alcohol is converted by Acetobacter bacteria to vinegar.

    Monosodium Glutamate from US Ajinomonti Company is Halal in USA and Canada. Except Ajinomonto Indonesia all other Ajinomonto MSG may or may not made by using pork fat media to grow microorgnism to make MSG.

    There is no such thing animla fungal. Fungi is Halal.

  • i know e471 is haraam bu what about if it has emulsifier written in front of it is it halaal jazakallah - ariba
  • AOA

    Who says E-Number 471 is Haram. On contarry it will be Halal if it is made from vegetable fat. The most impotatnt thing to look for Halal emulsifier in a food product is the statement "Suitable for Vegetarian" it means the emulsifier are obtained from vegetable fat but make sure other ingredients are Halal.

  • Asalaam aleykoum, There are different kinds of sprouted bread with different grains which have only been sprouted and then baked. One example is the sprouted rye bread. The complete ingredients are: 100% Sprouted rye bread. Nothing added and have been baked. So is it possible that alcohol may be produced in the process of baking the sprouted bread? Is this bread halal to consume? - An An
  • AOA

    You say there is no other ingredients then there will be no production of alcohol because it does not contain yeast. Whatever in the sprouted rye will be denatured by the heat of baking. I never came across this in cereal science or cereal chemistry journel or in cereal food magazine. Please provide the name of the manuacture, if you have phone number then I will call to find how could they make sprouted bread with out yeast. I think it should be like flat bread or chapati.

  • Asalaam aleykoum, There is an organic sprouted bread that is only made out of organic sprouted grains, for examples rye, wheat, spelt etc. The grains are sprouted and then baked. Nothing else is added. The result is a very sweet bread. Now am wondering if any alcohol may be produced in the process, for example from the natural sugar in the grains? I asked the company and this was nothing that they are aware of. So is this bread halal to consume? - An An
  • AOA

    I need complete ingredients statement before I will say it is Halal or not. Only Barley is used for sprouting. Sprouting is nothing but germination of seed and there is no alcohol produce during sprouting for barley.
