  • I accidentally ate Bacon cheddar potato chips just after looking at the U sign on the packet. Later i realized and regret thinking I had pig bacon. Can you please explain it its haram ? I do not find bacon content in the ingredients but its bacon cheddar on the packet. - Masihuddin
  • AOA

    Orthodox Kosher OU symbol carrying products will not have Haram pork but they can kosher certify a Bacon Cheddar Potato chip made of artificial bacon flavor by use of chemicals. There is no bacon in it. Although there is no bacon in it but I do not advise to consume it unless it says beef bacon cheddar potato chips. Since bacon can be made from pork and beef. But if it is made from beef it has to say beef bacon. If it says bacon it means pork. So please do not use it there is yeast extract in it then it mostly comes from brewer yeast which is by product of beer making. Muslims should stay away from bacon even it is made with chemical only because bacon is not Muslim product. Bacon comes from artificial flavor.

  • Assalam alaykom The sees candy lollipops do not contain VANILLA except the Vanilla flavored lollipop, the butterscotch lolipop contains vanillin which is a halal artificial flavor, the coffe and chocolate lollipops do not contain VANILLA or VANILLIN, they only contain ( Corn syrup , Butter , Cream (Milk) , Sugar , Coffee, Soy Lecithin (an emulsifier) , vinegar , Cocoa butter and Salt. There is no Flavoring in the lollipops and they're Kosher certified. So are they considered halal?! - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    There is no ingredients on their website but as you wrote the ingredients of coffee and chocolate lollipos then it is Halal. After I aget the ingredients from See Candy then I examined the vanilla one if they meet Halal requirements then Inshallah I will publish it on our website.

  • Is Doritos brand chips nacho cheese flavored halal. - doritos
  • AOA

    From our Alert section:

    TITLE: 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.

  • Salamun Aleykum, i have a question about eggs. what are the halal not fertilized eggs brands in the usa? because i cannot find it online.i was using the vegeterian feed eggs but they have red dots in it so it is fertilized. now i cannot buy eggs because i dont know the halal one. can you please tell me which brand egg i can buy in usa? also is zinc oxide / zinc oxide powder is halal ? i cannot use any sun screen because they have either alcohol or animal fat in them now i am trying to make my own at home and i want to add zinc oxide or zinc oxide powder in it is it halal to use zinc oxide/ zinc oxide powder? thank you from now. Best Regards, Cigdem Cengiz - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Founding red spot is quality control problem for egg supplier because they did not follow the procedure. I was wrong about red spot in egg and wrotethat  it is due to fertilization which I learned in my country but here in USA expert think it is not fertilization but some how blood got in to the egg in chicken. They even said it is no harm to eat but I do not recommend. Zink oxide is a chemical and it is Halal.

  • As Salamu Alaykum, I want to know the source of Gelatin in the Spring Valley Cod Liver Oil with Vitamins A & D3. Is the source bovine or porcine? Is it permissible to consume these Multivitamins. JazakAllah Khairan. - K.R.Hussain
  • AOA

    First Vitamins should not buy with a Kosher symbol on the package. It does not matter the source of gelatin which could be pork mostley and few are beef.

    From our Alert section:

    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 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.

    TITLE: 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.

    TITLE: 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.

    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 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.

  • Asalam u alikum, I wanted to say can you please add the pictures of the products as well, then it would be helpful. There are two products, which I found have same name, but different ingredients: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- http://www.walmart.com/ip/Pepperidge-Farm-Whole-Grain-Double-Fiber-Soft-100-Whole-Wheat-Bread-24-Oz/10452841#ProductDetail http://www.walmart.com/ip/Pepperidge-Farm-Whole-Grain-100-Whole-Wheat-Bread-24-Oz/10452850 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- On the bread, if you look both of them have same name, but only on the walmart's website, they have different names, but Not on the bread itself. On your website(http://www.muslimconsumergroup.com/) It says that "Whole Grain 100% Whole Wheat Bread" is Halal, but there is no way to find out which bread is halal the first link one or the second link one, because they have the same name on them. Only if someone checks on the walmart then they would find out that they have different names, and still I don't know which one is halal the first one or second one, also they have DIFFERENT INGREDIENT(I capitalized the letters so you would notice this more, not for saying loud.) as well. Or there is difference, I don't see it? Can you tell me? maybe I don't know? Jazak Allah Khayr. - Muhammad Usman
  • AOA

    If they have same name they can be identified name of the brand and UPC numbers. If 10452841 is UPC code number then the other one 10452850 is different. These two differrent products. MCG can not picture on our website because of space and cost. Bread are listed with brand name which could be different from othes alcohol the bread name will be same.

  • AOA

    If it says "Suitable for Vegetarian " then please this phrase to find out whether alcohol is used in flavoring:

    " 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".
