  • You have mentioned in your website that kosher meat in USA is not halal so why other food items having kosher symbol are halal? - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    The kosher meat is not Halal because the Sochet (A Rabbi who only slaughter animal) do not says Allah's name on each animal only first animal and last animal. In Islam Muslims must pronounce the name of Allah on each animal before hand slaughtering the Halal animal and follow Islamic rules for slaughtering.

    Non meat Kosher food products if meet Islamic dietary requirements then it is consider as Halal as per Quran and ahadith. But:

    NOT ALL KOSHER CERTIFIED NON MEAT FOOD PRODUCTS ARE HALAL, ONLY THOSE WHO MEET HALAL REQUIREMENTS ARE HALAL

    The Kosher Certified food products are not considered Halal if they contain one of the following ingredient (based on MCG Halal Standard): (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 (18) if Carrageenan is made with ethyl alcohol, (19) Natural Vanilla or Natural Vanilla Flavor(because Alcohol is used in its extraction).

  • AOA

    The most important thing is it must have kosher symbol to protect hidden Haram ingredients and flavoring material of Natural flavor and source of Glycerin. There should be no alcohol used as a solvent for natural flavor.

    If it does not have kosher symbol then glycerin must be from vegetable fat source, no Haram hidden ingredients used and source of flavoring part of natural flavor from Halal sources and there should be no alcohol used in natural flavor. All the additional Vitamins and mineral except enriched bleached wheat flour must be kosher certified.

  • aoa brother can you tell me is the red 40 color halal.thanks. - asma mureed
  • AOA

    From our FAQ:

    FD&C yellow No. 5 or FD&C red No. 40 colors

    FD&C yellow No. 5 or FD&C red No. 40 are chemical dyes or lakes and they are Halal if used in pure granular or powder form but if the FD&C colors are required to make it in liquid form then a solvent is needed to make FD&C colors in liquid form. Liquid FD&C colors are used in liquid foods such as soft drinks. Vegetable oil or glycerin is used to make liquid artificial colors. Liquid FD&C colors are Halal only if vegetable oil or soy fat based glycerin is used. If glycerin is obtained from pork fat then liquid FD&+C colors will be Haram. A Halal or Kosher symbol (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements) appears on a food package containing these colors indicates that no pork or beef fat glycerin was used as a solvent.

    There is no kosher symbol on the package so Muslim can not protect from adding Haram hidden ingredients.

    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.

  • is whey in cheetos halal - tasneem rehman
  • 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.

    Thanks for sending the Itune reply. I am sorry about your unability to use the app. I am not a computer engineer. Halal Food App was developed by somebody else through our website technical person br. Hussain Presswalla of LB Web Manangement Inc. MCG paid him $ 3500 to developing this Halal Food App. So far only 100 Muslims down loaded this app in one and half month. Out of 100 app sale we received only 3 complaints that Halal food app is not working on their Apple cell phones.

    You are getting money back, I am sorry that you can not use Halal Food on your Apple cell phone. I can not help you further because I am not a computer engineer or web developer but a food scientist. I feel sorry that three Muslims can not use Halal Food App but I can not help.

  • can we eat hotcheetoes - Balo
  • 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.

  • Asalam 3alaykum. I called a company regarding a pasta ingredient the ingredients are ( water, wheat flour, & color FD&C yellow #5) When I called and asked about the coloring all he said was that this color is natural coloring. Would it be considered halal!? The product is vermicelli fine premium quality it says product of United Arab Emirates. - Bayan
  • AOA

    Macaroni products including vermicilli in USA and Cannada will not allow to add any FD&C colors. FD&C colors are artificial colos=rs not natural colors. The answer was wrong.

    From our FAQ:

    FD&C yellow No. 5 or FD&C red No. 40 colors

    FD&C yellow No. 5 or FD&C red No. 40 are chemical dyes or lakes and they are Halal if used in pure granular or powder form but if the FD&C colors are required to make it in liquid form then a solvent is needed to make FD&C colors in liquid form. Liquid FD&C colors are used in liquid foods such as soft drinks. Vegetable oil or glycerin is used to make liquid artificial colors. Liquid FD&C colors are Halal only if vegetable oil or soy fat based glycerin is used. If glycerin is obtained from pork fat then liquid FD&+C colors will be Haram. A Halal or Kosher symbol (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements) appears on a food package containing these colors indicates that no pork or beef fat glycerin was used 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.

    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.

  • Salam, I would like to know your opinion (if you have the time, if not please ignore me) about istihlak and its relation to rennet and whey used in cheese and other food products as discussed in this article: http://muslimmatters.org/2007/07/09/of-mice-and-men-the-cheese-factor/ JazakAllah khairan. - Layla
  • AOA

    This is a7 yeras old article and I replied to it andplease do not follow because br. Yasir is not a food scientist and he is a chemical engineer and Islamic scholar but do not have work experience in  food industry. Now days Microbial rennet is available all over the world which is Halal and there is no need of istihlak.

    CHEESES AND ITS HALAL STATUS:

    The following things have to be Halal in order for a cheese to be considered Halal:

    1. Ingredients used to make the Mother Starter Culture growth Media ((if whey used, it has to be made from non animal rennet, Lactose is also from non animal rennet, yeast extract has to be from baker’s yeast or starter culture growth media has to be kosher certified).

    2. Ingredients used to make the Bulk Starter Culture growth Media ((if whey used, it has to be made from non animal rennet, Lactose is also from non animal rennet, yeast extract has to be from baker’s yeast) bulk starter culture media has to be kosher certified).

    3. Starter Bacterial culture are Halal if they obtained from milk source and not from meat source, usually in practice they obtained from milk.

    4. Milk Coagulating Enzyme, such as rennet used to coagulate milk has to be from miMicrobial source or has to be Kosher certified or Rennet obtained from Zabiha slaughtered calves (not available in USA and Canada).

    5. Fat Hydrolyzing Enzyme if used, such as Lipases has to be from Microbial source or kosher certified

    6. Dairy ingredients such as Non Fat dry milk solid or cream or dry milk or whey protein concentrate if added has to be kosher certified

    7. Artificial color such as artificial blue or green color is added to neutralize natural yellow color in curd for Asiago or Blue cheese has to be kosher certified

    8. Media to grow mold Penicillium roquefortti providing blue color in blue cheese has to kosher certified

    9. Harmless plant based enzyme is if added for curing or flavor development and growth media for biological curing agent used on the surface of Brick cheese has to be kosher certified.

    10. Flavoring if used has to be kosher certified and alcohol is not used as a solvent or hydrolyzed lactose, whey for cold packed cheese food is allowed in cream cheese but most manufacturer use gums.

    11. Cheese for retail must be Kosher certified and the kosher certification must meet the Halal requirements with exception of Mozzarella cheese used on pizza, in that case Mozzarella cheese does not have to be kosher certified but if they used kosher certified starter culture bacteria, media and enzyme then meet above requirements then it is consider Halal. Cheese if Halal certified by other Halal certifying organizations must meet above criteria and if above criteria used for Halal certification then it must display on their websites otherwise MCG will not consider their Halal certified cheese as Halal.

    Then you request them to get the answer from other company. Please write the question is this :

    " 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".
