    HOW TO PHRASE YOUR QUESTION ABOUT ALCOHOL IN FLAVOR OF A FOOD PRODUCT


    The question about alcohol in flavor is a tricky one because it is a hidden ingredient of the flavor. If you ask alcohol question to non technical consumer department person of a food company, first they look at the ingredients list of the food product and will find no alcohol is mentioned. Then they will say we do not use alcohol in our products because they do not know the alcohol is a hidden ingredient of the flavor.


    We request Muslim consumers to use the following phrase when asking or writing the question to consumer department of any food company regarding the presence or absence of alcohol in the flavor of a food product.

    "HOW TO PHRASE YOUR QUESTION ABOUT ALCOHOL IN FLAVOR OF A FOOD PRODUCT"

    " is alcohol used as a solvent in flavor; alcohol is a hidden ingredient or processing aid ingredient of a flavor, it will not appear in the ingredients statement. The knowledge of presence or absence of alcohol in flavor is only known to your QA or Technical service department because they have access to the specification of flavors. In the specification of flavor, your flavor supplier has written  the name of solvent or carrier used in that particular flavor. So please request your QA or Technical service department to find out whether alcohol was used or not in the flavor as a solvent. The consumer department can not answer this question because they do not have access to specification of ingredients".

  • asalamo alaikom wa rahmato allah ........ jazakom allah alf khair ala majhoodokom ,,, i want to ask about cough drops ( rite aid ) it does have eucalyptus .. is it halal ? 2- baker's corner ( deluxe moist white cake mix ) it has emulsifier ( Propylene Glycol Monoesters, Mono and diglycerides ) is it halal ? 3- pillsbury ( moist supreme strawbery natural and artificial flavor ) is it halal ? 4- kroger brand ( chocolate decors dessert toppings) it has confectionr's glaze . is it halal jazakom allah khair - leen
  • AOA

    Eucalyptus is a plant and prbably they use Halal eucalytus oil in teh cough drops but i do not know the rest of ingredients. Cofectionary Glaze is not Halal because Shellac(it is obtained from excete of a insect on the tree) is dissolve in alcohol to make the confectionary glaze. Most of Cakes mixes are kosher certified but some not I do not know about Baker;s corner. But majority of cake mixes are made from alcohol containing flavors.Propylene Glycol Monoesters, Mono and diglycerides is from vegetable fat if there is a kosher symbol on Baker's Corner packageotherwise not Halal. The only Halal cake mixes are listed under our Cakes Mixes category. If you write Cake Mixes under search engine click Food products by category you will see list of Halal cake Mixes.
