  • Are nacho chesse doritos halal - Salim Shaikh
  • AOA

    Why Cheetos and Doritos (except Doritos Toasted Corn Tortilla Chips) are not Halal

    There is no kosher symbol on the package of Cheetos and Doritos. This makes them Non Halal because they can add any Haram Hidden or Processing aid ingredients without mentioning under the ingredients statement. Cheese used in Cheetos and Doritos are not Kosher certified and not Halal. Sine these products are not under Halal or Kosher certification then Frito Lay can use non kosher certified flavors or colors. There is no restriction for Frito Lay to make Cheetos or Doritos on their own lines or on co-packers line where pork containing products are made. This exposes a great possibility of cross contamination of pork containing ingredients. All these snacks are very attractive to adults and children but there is a Hadith which says that Allah will not accept your dua for 40 days if a Muslim eats intentionally a bit of Haram food. So MCG recommend Muslims not consume above snacks.

  • Assalamualaikum, I want to know about "Mrs Pauls crunchy fish sticks". There is "K" sign on the box but just recently I saw that there was beer battered fish sticks of the same brand also in the refrigerator at the store. Please can u confirm that we can eat the regular fish sticks or not. JazakAllahulkhair - Aisha Shahnawaz
  • AOA

    Alert Title Description Date
    Please do not consumed fried fish or fried potatoes if the company or sea food restaurants makes the Beer Battered fried products

    Many food companies and restaurants manufacture or serve beer battered fried fish or potatoes products in USA, Canada and Europe.

    They use same fryers and same vegetable oil to fry both beer battered fish or potatoes and non beer battered fish or potatoes products.

    In seafood restaurants if you see beer battered under menu then please do not order any fried fish such as Red Lobster and other sea food restaurants.

    Similarly frozen fried fish and frozen fried potato brands such as Gorton, Van De Kemps, McCain, Or-Ida make frozen beer battered fried fish and fried potato. So non beer battered frozen are contaminated with beer because beer cannot be removed from frying vegetable oil. The oil is recycled to remove only large and small particles of  products left over in the oil. So all their non beer battered fried are contaminated with beer in the batter.

    The grilled or broiled frozen fish or potato products are not contaminated with beer. But make sure those products are Halal. A list of Halal frozen broiled or grilled frozen fish and potatoes are listed on our website.

    MUSLIMS ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTIONS TO HALAL VITAMINS

    Many Muslims are using non Halal vitamins from stores like Wal-Mart, Walgreen, CVS Pharmacy, GNC. This is because of lack of knowledge about the Halal status of those vitamins. MCG get every day a question from Muslims asking about the Halal status of xyz vitamins. MCG is providing help in picking up the Halal vitamins after it researched at Vitamin Shoppe stores which are located in every city of USA. MCG advises Muslims to check the Halal status of vitamins before consuming them.

    Many major brand of vitamins are not Halal such as: Centrum, Equate, Citracal, Nature Made, Vitafusion, One A Day, GNC, Flintstone, Nature Beauty, Walgreen, Geritol, Nature Bounty, Garliq, Estroven, Disney Gummies, Fiber Smart, Caltrale, Finest Nature, One Source, Lill Critteers, Culturelle, Philps, Ultimate Florea, Viactive, Elatins, Os-Cal, Spring Valley, Schiff, Stevia, Optimum Nutrition, Mega Red, Ocuvite, Alive, Centrum Kid, Active Kid, Spring Valley, Bayer, CVS Vitamins and Kirkland Signature. They are not Halal because they are not Halal or Kosher certified or do not have a Halal or Kosher symbol on the package.

    Even if they do not contain gelatin, they are still not Halal because they add without restriction any Haram hidden ingredient. Halal or Kosher certification protects Muslims from adding Haram Hidden or Processing Aid Ingredients which are not required to be mention under ingredients statement by FDA. MCG has a list of Halal multivitamins, individual vitamins, prenatal vitamins and fish oil or omega 3 on our website under "Vitamins". Please use this list of Halal vitamins. How to search Halal vitamins on our website: Please write vitamins or prenatal vitamins or fish oil (for Omega fish oil) under the search box then click Food Product by Category then click Show Only Halal then click search. You will get a list of 45 Halal vitamins, 3 Halal prenatal vitamins, 6 Halal fish oil (Omega fish oil) and where to buy them.

  • So the kosher symbol on food items like chocolates indicates that the whey used is from non meat sources? - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Whey and its Halal Status:

    Muslims think that if whey is a milk based ingredient then it has to be Halal, but this is not true. There are two kinds of whey, one is sweet or rennet whey and the other is acid whey. Acid whey is obtained during the making of acid type of cheese such as cottage cheese. Sweet or rennet whey is used more in food products then acid whey. Sweet whey or rennet whey is a by-product of rennet cheese  such as cheddar cheese or Mozzarella cheese. Whey is a portion of milk remaining after coagulation and removal of curd. Whey is Halal only if the Halal starter culture bacteria, Halal medium on which starter culture bacteria are grown (Starter culture bacteria are Halal if they are obtained from milk source not meat source), and media on which these starter culture bacteria are grown. These requirements can only obtained if the cheese and whey are Halal or Kosher certified (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements). A Halal or Kosher symbol (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements) appears on a food package containing whey indicating that it is manufactured under Halal or Kosher supervision.

He()asked: Is it intoxicating? I replied: Yes. He() said: You must avoid it. I said: The people will not abandon it.

    Glen Mark's Gabapentin prescription tablets are Halal for diabetic patient for pain

    Many diabetic patients are exposed to nerve damage and suffer pain and numbness. Most doctors prescribed Gabapentin capsules but those capsules are made with pig gelatin.

    MCG has investigated with two pharmaceutical companies namely Camber and Glen Mark. Although Camber's tablets are not made with pork but they used a coating which is made of cool vanilla.

    On the other hand Glen Mark's Gabapentin tables are not made with any animal derived ingredients including pig and the coating is made with polymers without any alcohol. They are Halal tablets.

    This information is also for Muslims doctors who are treating diabetic patients for pain to prescribe Glen Mark's Halal Gabapentin tables for their Muslim patients.

    MCG recommends to Muslim consumers who are using Gabapentin capsules to ask their doctors to prescribe Glen Mark's Halal Gabapentin tablets.

  • As slamualikum.When you say "halal if no alcohol is used in flavour" does it mean "alcohol" to be boldly written or is it a hidden ingredient or does it depend. Jazakallah - kab
  • AOA

    Alcohol is the hidden ingredient of flavors.

    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.

    " is ethanol or ethyl alcohol used as a solvent in flavor; ethanol or ethyl 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 ethanol or ethyl 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 ethanol or ethyl alcohol was used or not in the flavor as a solvent".

    MUSLIMS ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTIONS TO HALAL VITAMINS

    Many Muslims are using non Halal vitamins from stores like Wal-Mart, Walgreen, CVS Pharmacy, GNC. This is because of lack of knowledge about the Halal status of those vitamins. MCG get every day a question from Muslims asking about the Halal status of xyz vitamins. MCG is providing help in picking up the Halal vitamins after it researched at Vitamin Shoppe stores which are located in every city of USA. MCG advises Muslims to check the Halal status of vitamins before consuming them.

    Many major brand of vitamins are not Halal such as: Centrum, Equate, Citracal, Nature Made, Vitafusion, One A Day, GNC, Flintstone, Nature Beauty, Walgreen, Geritol, Nature Bounty, Garliq, Estroven, Disney Gummies, Fiber Smart, Caltrale, Finest Nature, One Source, Lill Critteers, Culturelle, Philps, Ultimate Florea, Viactive, Elatins, Os-Cal, Spring Valley, Schiff, Stevia, Optimum Nutrition, Mega Red, Ocuvite, Alive, Centrum Kid, Active Kid, Spring Valley, Bayer, CVS Vitamins and Kirkland Signature. They are not Halal because they are not Halal or Kosher certified or do not have a Halal or Kosher symbol on the package.

Halal or Kosher certification protects Muslims from adding Haram Hidden or Processing Aid Ingredients which are not required to be mention under ingredients statement by FDA. MCG has a list of Halal multivitamins, individual vitamins, prenatal vitamins and fish oil or omega 3 on our website under "Vitamins". Please use this list of Halal vitamins.

  • AOA

    There are two problem, Pure vanilla is not a Halal unless vanillin mentioned under the ingredients statment. Some companies evaporte alcohol to say no alcohol and that is not Halal.

    Glycerin:

    Glycerin is a fat based ingredients used in foods and non food products. Since it is a fat based ingredient so it is either obtained from animal fat such as pork or beef or it is obtained from vegetable fat. Only vegetable fat based Glycerin is Halal or it is Halal if there is a Kosher symbol on the food package containing glycerin which means glycerin the food is obtained from vegetable fat.

  • AOA

    There is no Halal whipped cream but there are whipping creams. Kraft's cool whip is not Halal because it is made with alcohol containing flavor.

    Islamic sharia does not work that by adding some thing to lower the amount of alcohol. Everything has to be alcohol free because alcohol is a intoxicant and according to a Hadith all intoxicants are Haram no matter if it is in a very small quantity.

    You can addd Philadelphia Whipping cream cheese which is a Halal product and can be added to a Halal ice cream like Breyer Natural Strawberry Ice cream.

    MCG has paid $3500 to obtained Apple Halal Food App so that Muslims can search the Halal status of food products while shopping at supermarkets. The cost of app is $1.99 out of which MCG gets @1.40 and rest goes to Apple. MCG has to paid the web developer, the phone expenses, internet expenses, office supplies etc. MCG has paid over $8000 to print the Food Ingredients and Their Halal Status. So who is going to pay these expenses because nobody want do web development job free. If you do not want to pay $1.99 then please do not write about Non profit organization because every non pofit organization has to pay expenses to run the organization. MCG do not have no monthly income so tell me how MCG pays its bill.

    You have to thank Allah for getting free information from this website.

    Alcohol is a hidden ingredient of natural flavor which is mentioned under their ingredients statement. Alcohol present in fruits is Halal because it developed due to natural process but problem comes when man add alcohol to natural flavor or in foods.

    No company want to sell unlabeled products at supermarkets. It is against the FDA laws but there are exception for restuarant foods. If you want to consume Halal food products then follow this website.

    I can not guide about unlabeled product because nobody know how it is made and what ingredients are used.

    All Halal national brand products listed on this website are available at Wal-Mart. The Great Value a Wal-Mart brand has lited on this website. Some are Halal and some are not. You have to search it.
