    From our FAQ:

    Is Kosher Gelatin Halal

    No, Kosher gelatin is not Halal because it is made either from pork or non zabiha beef and therefore kosher gelatin from pork is Haram. A liberal kosher symbol K appears on yogurts containing kosher gelatin because some Rabbis consider kosher gelatin from pork as kosher.

  • I would like to share this information i got by email from Consumer care representative of Wrigley: In response to your Website comments # {ticketno:[8000445581]} Thanks for contacting Wrigley to ask for information about Life Savers® Pep-o-mint Mints. We understand it’s important to you to know the ingredients in the food you eat, and we’d be happy to share the information with you. In answer to your question, the vast majority of Wrigley products sold in Canada are free from ingredients of animal origin, including egg and dairy products. Glycerin is the most common ingredient in our gum products. Glycerin can come from animal, vegetable or synthetic sources. The glycerin we use comes from vegetable sources only. At present, the only exceptions are Extra® Polar Ice, Altoids® mints, Juicy Fruit Twisted Green, Lifesavers Gummies, Excel Cool Blast mints, Excel Mist and 5 React and Creme Savers. Extra® Polar Ice gum contains tiny flavour beads encased in a microscopic layer of gelatin, which is animal based. This brand is not to be confused with Excel ® Polar Ice, which does not contain gelatin. Juicy Fruit Twisted Green gum uses shellac (also known as Confectioner's Glaze) as a coating agent. Our Life Savers® Pep-O-Mint and Wint-O-Green also contain stearic acid, which is an animal-based ingredient. In addition, the different varieties of our ALTOIDS® mints, Lifesavers Gummies and Excel Cool Blast (liquid-filled) mints do contain very small quantities of gelatin which is derived from pork. Gelatin does not impart any flavor to Altoids, but it's a necessary ingredient for the texture of the mints. When we use gelatin it is thoroughly purified and dried during its manufacturing process. Creme Savers use dairy products. Our staff is continually looking at alternatives to animal gelatin, but at the moment we've not been able to find a substitute that produces the same quality consumers expect of our products. Another common question concerns whether glycerin or sugar alcohols are true alcohols or not. Glycerin is an alcohol but this type of alcohol is a natural byproduct of most plants, fruits and vegetables or it sometimes has a synthetic source. Sugar alcohols refers to the group of ingredients that are artificial sweeteners. We would like to point out that these alcohols are NOT the same as the ethyl alcohol found in alcoholic beverages. We hope this information is helpful to you. Again, thanks for contacting us, and we hope you'll continue to enjoy our products. Your interest in Wrigley is greatly appreciated. Have a sweet day, Sincerely, Barbra North Consumer Care Representative 8000445581 - Attaria
  • AOA

    No animal derived ingredients are used and no alcohol in flavor. But the Wrigley Company wrote to MCG that "because they are both(Chewing Gums without any animal derived ingredients, no alcohol in flavor and pork gelatin containing gums) manufactured in the same facility, there is always a chance for cross contamination." MCG is considered them as Not Halal but we do not force Muslims consumers to follow our consideration, MCG's job is to provide the information. UPC Code: 0 2200011248 4

  • AOA

    From our FAQ:

    What are Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Butyl Alcohol, Lauryl and Oleyl Alcohol used in Personal Care Products. Are they Halal:

    All above alcohol are not Ethyl Alcohol but they are fatty alcohol or fatty waxes made from either animal fat such as pork fat or vegetable fat such as soy fat. Only manufacturer will know the source of these ingredients. If any personal care company says that no animal derived ingredients are used in their products containing above alcohols it means they are obtained from vegetable fat.

  • Is whey haram? why is it if yes? - Marah
  • AOA

    From FAQ on our website:

    Is Whey a Halal ingredient

    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 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. MCG considers Lactose Halal only if it is Halal or Kosher certified.

    It does not matter. The requirements of Halal cheese is that it has to have a Halal or kosher symbol on the package. They do not tell you what hidden ingredients they use. So Halal or kosher symbol on the food package protect Muslims from adding Haram hidden ingredients.

    From our website Home Page:

    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.

  • www.halalhubusa.com/unleafed-skittles/ It says skittle's halal - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    I went for first time and their Halal status based on food companies letters. MCG has our known criteria for Halal status. It is based on kosher certification if kosher certification meets Halal requirement. It is mentioned under Food Section and sub section MCG Halal standard.

    I could not find Skittles on their website. Although Skilttle said thet are not using pork but they are not under kosher certification. It means they can add any Haram hidden ingredient without mentioning under ingredients statement. So they are not Halal because color and flavor are not Halal.

    NOT ALL KOSHER CERTIFIED FOOD PRODUCTS ARE HALAL, ONLY THOSE 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).

  • Asalaam aleikoum. There is a company that sell supplements in vegetable capsules. (It says vegetable capsules on the package) There is no kosher or vegetarian symbol on the package, but there is a vegan symbol on one of these products. The iron supplement has a vegan symbol on the package. The iron capsules contain: Ferrous gluconate, ferrous glycinate and ferrous citrate. Vegetable capsule made of cellulose. So is the iron supplement halal? The other supplement is vitamin D3 ( sheep wool). There is no vegan symbol on the package. Is it because the D vitamin is obtained from sheep wool? The D-vitamin capsules contain: Microcrystalline cellulose, cholecalciferol. Vegetable capsules. So is the D-vitamin halal? On the website it says that all there products are vegetarian. I asked about if they use alcohol in the manufacturing process, and the answer was no. So are these two products halal to consume? Or one of them? wa salaam - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    If there is no kosher symbol then we do not know what Haram hidden ingredients they use in the vitamins. It is not a Halal vitamins.

  • Asalaam aleikum. I am reffering to question i asked earlier: Asalaam aleikum. There is company in sweden that sell vegetable food supplements, like D-vitamin and iron in capsules. The capsules are vegan- halal and kosher certified. I dont think that there are any symbols on the package, but it says on the website that the capsules are vegan- halal- and kosher certified. Is it enough to be halal? The iron capsules contain: Ferrous gluconate, ferrous glycinate and ferrous citrate. Vegetable capsule made of cellulose. The D3-vitamin capsules contain: Microcrystalline cellulose, cholecalciferol ( vitamin D3)The D-vitamin is made from sheep wool. I asked whether they use alcohol in the manufacturing process and the answer was no. So are these products halal to consume? Answer as soon as possible barakallahu feek. Wa salaam." According to the company, there products are 100% vegetarian. And there is a vegan symbol or a vegan label on the package (iron) but not on the D3 vitamin (sheep wool). Earlier i wrote vegan, but the capsules are vegetarian. They are approaved by the vegetarian society, and they are kosher- and halal certified. So if there is a vegan symbol on the package and the capsules are kosher and halal certified is this product halal? answer as soon as possible barakallahu feek. wa salaam - Anonymous user

I always come back to check if Qdoba and panera is certified yet as well as noodles and company. At panera, I get the Mediterranean sandwich and tomato soup. It's all vegetarian and even has v next to their menu titles. Qdoba, I wanted you guys to confirm for the salsas and veggies beans and rice. Noodles and company, the penne rosa which I get without wine. I am actually alhamdulillah pregnant and am always craving my favorite foods but suppress my yearnings because I'm not 100% sure. Please help. Jazakallahu khair. - Fariha
  • AOA

    Thanks for your comment. There no guys but only one guy that is me. I have to reserach it if their website has all ingeredients. I do not know whether they buy kosher certified raw material or not. Vegan does not means Hala because many vegan drink alcohol. I suggest you to stop eating soup and sandwiches until it is proved to be Halal. I did research for tuna sandwich and it is not Halal. It is already reported on Alert section.
