  • AOA

    For deodorant, ingredients will not tell any thing unless source of fat base ingredients such Sodium Stearate has to be known whether it is from animal fat or vegetable fat. The best thing is to ask manufacturer whether ingredients are obtained from animal fat or vegetable fat and alcohol in fragrance. Old Spice products are made from animal fat base ingredients.

  • Assalam o Alaikum Brother, I was wondering that when companies say that we do not use beef or pork in our products what do they exactly mean. Because they assume that derived or by- product is a synthesized (synthetic but from animal source ) which does not come under animal ingredients definition which are used directly like honey or bee wax . For example stearic acid, glycerol stearate or cetyl alcohol they think are synthetic although these are derived from animal fat/vegetable fat. So the companies are true in a sense that they are using not beef or pork on other hand these so called synthetic but actually synthesized ingredients. I mean they are not using beef fat directly as it is but using synthesized ingredients as stearic acid as fatty acid/chemical. Because recently i called a skin care company they said stearic acid is synthetic. But it is known fact that this is naturally occurring although after synthesis of fats. Have you ever thought of this. Please tell me if I am wrong. May Allah SWT bless you. - Zahida majeed
  • AOA

    The rule to buy Halal food products that it has a Halal kosher symbol and should not contain the ingredients:

    1) Gelatin (2) Kosher Gelatin (3) L-Cysteine made from human hair or chicken or duck feathers (4) Wine (5) Liquor (6) Beer batter (7) Rum flavor (8) Ethyl Alcohol or ethanol as a main ingredient (9) Cochineal or Carmine (10) Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce (11) Brewer’s Yeast Extract from byproduct of beer making  (12) Nucleotides (13) Vanilla Extract (14) Wine Vinegar (15) If ethyl alcohol is used as a solvent in natural and artificial flavors (16) Confectionary Glaze or Resinous Glaze (17) Torula Yeast grown on alcohol.

    Most synthetic products are not made with natural sources such as pork and beef, they made with non natural sources.

  • Salam alaykoum. i bought a product from the company "Eating Right" and the product is protein veggie burgers. the only ingredient that i am confused about is the "distilled vinegar" is it halal? then why did i see this hadith? Muslim/Chapter 2 : IT IS FORBIDDEN TO PREPARE VINEGAR FROM KHAMR (WINE) Book , Number 4891: Anas reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) was asked about the use of Khamr from which vinegar is prepared. He said: No (it is prohibited). Jazaka Allah Khairan. - sh dara
  • AOA

    The hadith is sahee but it is for wine viengar not distilled vinegar because it is made from diluted alcohol not khamer. Alcohol is not khamer. Alcohol is a intoxicant. So distilled wheite vinegar or didtiloed vinegar is a Halal vinegar.

    Regarding Protein Veggie burger does it has a kosher symbol on it or not. Is soy sauce a part of ingredients if yes this is a Haram ingredients if ingredients of soy sauce is wheat and soy. What about natural flavor if present it may contain alcohol. Please checkout.

    The US based manuafcturer will keep the same list of ingredients as in USA but source is based which country they are selling for Muslim countries they do not use pork but use alcohol in fragrance.I do not whether Samina has a green dot on it. But if Samina owned and operated by Muslims they will not use pork, they amey use alcohol in fragrance.

  • in this web site it says that pringle originqal flavour is halal but it has the e code 471 which according to the e code list i have is haram so please tell me weather they are halal or not. And its the same with the milk chocolate m & ms but it says they are made in England - shehreyar ali
  • AOA

    Pringle Original Potato Chips in USA and Canada is kosher certified and is made from vegetable fat . In England, it should suitabel for vegetarian that means the E 471 is from vegetable fat. So Suitabel for Vegetarian must appears on the package with any alcohol in flavor the it is consider Halal. Without that claim they could made the E471 from pork or beef or vegetable fat.
