  • seven seas illumina has gelatin in it. Is it halal? is there any halal brand for skin nutrition? thank you - Fatimah
  • AOA

    From our ALERT Section:

    Gelatin in any food product or ingredient or Vitamins are not Halal unless it says Fish Gelatin in USA

    MCG is receiving many inquiries about gelatin foods or ingredients or in vitamins whether it is Halal or not.

    The important point is none of the gelatin carrying food products or ingredients or vitamins are Halal unless it says fish gelatin under ingredients statement. The use of fish gelatin in foods in USA is on rise because of demand by Muslim consumers and Jewish consumers. Food companies have booths at IFT Food Expo in July 2013 in Chicago promoting use of fish gelatin. It is important to know the fish gelatin from cat fish is not consider Halal or Kosher. Beta Carotene suppliers use fish gelatin as  a processing aid ingredient or hidden ingredient in Beta Carotene powder form so that it mixes well with other ingredients and fish gelatin is not mentioned under ingredients list.

  • salam alaikum, could you please check if this naan is halal, it has unsalted butter as an ingredient. jazakallah khair. http://shop.khanapakana.com/crispy-traditional-style-tandoori-naan-17-6-oz-500-grams/ - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    From our FAQ:

    Ingredients of Unslated Butter:

    The ingredients of unsalted butter is pasteurized sweet cream and natural flavoring or pasteurized sweet cream and lactic acid. Unsalted butter is Halal only if it is made with pasteurized sweet cream and lactic acid. But some time dairy companies add lactic acid and termed it as natural flavoring. It is better to call companies to confirm it.The natural flavoring is also made from Star Distillate. Starter Distillate in many unsalted butter brands contains Diacetyl. As we reported in our Ingredients section about Starter Distillate as "Besides diacetyl, starter distillate also contains minor amounts of acetaldehyde, ethyl formate, ethyl acetate, acetone, ethyl alcohol, 2-butanone, acetic acid and acetone. Since this minor amount of ethyl alcohol Starter Distillate is consider not Halal. If the dairy companies guarantee that their Starter Distillate do not contain minor amount of alcohol then it can be used. But our advice is to always use salted butter or if you see Pasteurized Sweet Cream and Lactic Acid under ingredients statement of Unsalted Butter then you can use the unsalted butter for example Horizon's Organic Unsalted Butter.

  • Regarding Mrs.Baird's Bread This is regarding one of the ingredients in the Mrs Baird's bread which is monoglycerides. As per my knowledge it will be taken from vegetables or animals(cow- or hog-derived). If its from vegetable or halal slaughtered cow, then its fine. But in the ingredients of Mrs Baird's bread they have just mentioned monoglycerides without mentioning the source. Kindly clarify whether this is considered while mentioning it under halal category in the list - Mohamed Yousuf
  • AOA

    A very few company such as Pepperidge Farm writes vegetable mono & diglycerides. Majority of bread companies are using soy fat based mono & diglycerides. I confirmed the Baird breads do use soy fat based mono & diglycerides. I also wrote a e-mail about to you.

    TITLE: Gelatin in any food product or ingredient or Vitamins or medicine is not Halal unless it says Fish Gelatin under ingredients statement in USA and Canada

    MCG is receiving many inquiries about gelatin foods or ingredients or in vitamins or in medicine whether it is Halal or not.

    The important point is none of the gelatin carrying food products or ingredients or vitamins are Halal unless it says fish gelatin under ingredients statement. The use of fish gelatin in foods in USA is on rise because of demand by Muslim consumers and Jewish consumers. Food companies have booths at IFT Food Expo in July 2013 in Chicago promoting use of fish gelatin. It is important to know the fish gelatin from cat fish is not consider Halal or Kosher. Beta Carotene suppliers use fish gelatin as  a processing aid ingredient or hidden ingredient in Beta Carotene powder form so that it mixes well with other ingredients and fish gelatin is not mentioned under ingredients list.
