  • Your website says that muslims can't eat any type of frozen pizza from any supermarket.But when we asked our Imam, he said that we could, but we just have to check the ingredients before we did so. - Aysha Sufiya
  • AOA

    Did you are Imam is educated in Food Science, does he knows how to make pizza, does he know the what are requirements of Halal cheese. Ask him how he is sure what he is eating and telling others when a hodith says if a Muslim eat a bite of Harm then Allah will not accept his dua and prayers.

    The Ffrozen cheese pizza do not have kosher symbol on the package. When there is no Halal or kosher symbol on the package the manufacturer can add pork by product ingredients as hidden ingredients. Did your Imam know that manufacturer can add up to 2% of hidden ingredients in a food without mentioning them under the ingredients list.

    Please ask him to stop telling Muslims what to eat what not eat when he does not have knowledge of food science.

    From our FAQ:

    Processing Aid Ingredients or Hidden ingredients in food products and food ingredients:

    FDA will allow up to 2% of processing aid ingredients or hidden ingredients in a food product or in a food ingredient without reporting them in the ingredients statement. Only Halal or Kosher symbol on food products  or food ingredients protect Muslim consumers from adding Haram processing aid ingredients or hidden ingredients in food products or ingredients by food manufacturers. Example of Hidden ingredient is use of pork gelatin during apple juice processing if the apple juice bottle do not have a kosher symbol then that apple juice could be made with pork gelatin.

  • AOA

    Capsules are made with either pork gelatin or non zabiha beef. I recommend to break the capsule which I does for myself and consume the medicine powder with apple sauce. But I do not know duloxetine powder is Halal or not. According to ulema if there is no Halal alternate then they allowed to consume medicine to get well.

  • I've known from your website that "The source of alcohol in soft drinks comes only from natural flavor". So how are you sure that Pepsi is Halal? There is evidence that it may contain alcohol: 1. Pepsi ingredients contain "Natural flavor" and I knew from Mr. Syed Rasheeduddin Ahmed (sunniforum) that other solvents "may have very low solubility. Second, vegetable oil cannot mix with water of the Coca-Cola it needs a emulsifier which is absent in the ingredients statement of Coca-Cola". The same thing applies to Pepsi 2. I knew from Mr. Syed Rasheeduddin Ahmed (sunniforum) that "Both Coca-Cola and Pepsi refused to answer the question about presence of alcohol as a solvent in natural flavor." So we cannot be sure about the "natural flavor" contained in Pepsi. 3.The French study showed clearly that Pepsi contains traces of alcohol. I know that the two instruments are different, but as long as the result is positive in one lab, so we cannot be sure that the results of other labs are accurate. The instruments used in the French study could be more advanced & sophisticated and could detect what other labs cannot detect. And remember that two years ago you mentioned that you didn't find alcohol in 7 up (METHOD DETECTION LIMIT OF GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY INSTRUMENT) and now you say that 7 up contains alcohol. **All I wanna say is that the lab results are not always reliable and can be inaccurate in some cases, and as long as the French Lab showed that Pepsi contains alcohol, so there is a strong possibility that there is alcohol in it, as we all know that Pepsi ingredients are the same everywhere in the world, so as long as a study showed that there is alcohol in one place, so the same thing may apply to other places all over the world. - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    I know I wrote that post at Sunniform. Please read the recent Alert on this topic below. Since the Natural Flavor in Pepsi is the last ingredient on the ingredients statment. It means even if alcohol is used as a solvent then analyzing equipment will not detect the alcohol because it is below the amount of detection. I said the possiblilty of using alcohol all the time but it is not 100%. Other Halal solvent like Propylene Glycol can be used and it does not matter of clear soft drink because Caramel color will hide it. Except Dr. Pepper (owner of 7 UP) wrote me that they most probably used alcohol but Coke and Pepsi declined to answer the question of alcohol in flavor.

    My assignment of Halal status is based on actual analyzed test not on any assumption. It is up to you to accept the finding of no alcohol in Pepsi or not to accept it. But I personally drink it after the test results. The instrument use d and methode used is an official Insntrument and official method.. The above post at Sunniforum was written before the test. The lab is one of best lab in the USA and I have no doubt about it. The French did not provide the instrument and methodology. Also Pepsi in France may have slightly different formula, may they are adding less carbonated water and sweetener.

    Allah Knows Better.

    MCG's analysis of Alcohol in US made soft drinks will be same in other countries if the ingredients statement are same

    There has been question whether  MCG 's reporting of alcohol content in  Coca Cola, 7 UP and no alcohol detection in Pepsi by a Chicago area independent lab is good for other countries such as Australia, England and India.

    MCG did research based on the ingredients statement of US made Coca Cola, Pepsi  and seven up and compared ingredients statement in other countries.

    It was concluded that if same ingredients statement found on these soft drinks in any part of the world then results of alcohol presence or absence in soft drinks reported by MCG on its website will be same in any part of the world.

    Ingredients of Coke, Pepsi and 7 UP

    Coca Cola:

    USA:

    Carbonated Water, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Caramel Color, Phosphoric Acid, Natural Flavors, Caffeine +/- processing aid ingredients or hidden ingredients up to a maximum of 2% of formula according US FDA, it is possible they may not add any processing aid ingredients only company knows.

    Australia:

    Ingredients: Carbonated Purified Water, Cane Sugar, Colour (Caramel 150d), Food Acid (338), Flavour, Caffeine +/- processing aid ingredients

    UK:

    Carbonated water, sugar, color (caramel E150d), phosphoric acid, natural flavorings (including caffeine) +/-

    India:

    Carbonated water, sugar, color (caramel E150d), phosphoric acid, natural flavorings (including caffeine).

    Pepsi:

    USA:

    Carbonated Water, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Caramel Color, Sugar, Phosphoric Acid, Caffeine, Citric Acid, Natural Flavor.

    Australia:

    Pepsi Next, Pepsi Light are different products but Under license, Schweppes Australia manufactures and distributes Pepsi, Pepsi Max.

    Pepsi Next's ingredients in Australia are Carbonated Water, Sugar, Color (150D), Food Acid (338), Flavors, Caffeine, Natural Sweetener (Steviol Glycosides).

    During the processing of Steviol Glycosides ethyl alcohol is used to crystallized the Steviol Glycosides. Based on MCG Halal standard, this soft drink is not considered as Halal.arbonated Waterontains:
    Carbonated water,
    sugar, colour (150D),
    UK:

    No Ingredients are available on internet.

    India:

    Carbonated Water, Acidity Regulators (338, 331, 330), Sweeteners (951, 950), Natural Color (150d) and added Flavor (Natural Flavoring Substances)

     

    7 UP:

    USA:

    Filtered Carbonated Water, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Citric Acid, Potassium Citrate, Natural Flavors, Calcium Disodium EDTA.

    Australia: No ingredients Information on internet.

    UK: No ingredients information on internet.

    India: No Ingredients information on internet.

    (MCG requests Muslim consumers in Australia, France, England and India to write the ingredients list from Pepsi and 7Up containers and send to us through e-mail at halalfoods.com)

                            Technical Analysis

    Every soft drink company sells their product in the form of concentrates and bottlers add specific amount of carbonated water and sweetener to make final soft drink product.

    Coca Cola company used six declared ingredients on each container of Coca Cola in USA, Australia, England and India.

    They do not use a single natural flavor but multiple natural flavors. Since most natural flavors are made with ethyl alcohol as a solvent, so amount of alcohol in natural flavors is more than a single natural flavor.

    Second the natural flavors is the second last ingredient of formula and caffeine is last one. It means the natural flavors is more than Caffeine.

    This is the reason the lab analysis of Cocoa Cola, Pepsi and 7 UP at a independent lab in Chicago area shows that Coca Cola has more alcohol compare to Pepsi which do not show any alcohol at all.

    Pepsi contains a single Natural Flavor and it is the last ingredient of the ingredients statement compared to Coca Cola and 7 UP. It means the amount of natural flavor added to formula is less in Pepsi compared to Coca Cola and 7 UP.

    It means the amount of natural flavor is less in Pepsi because the citric acid is 2nd last ingredient and caffeine is third last ingredient. Natural Flavor in Pepsi is last ingredient in ingredients statement.

    The highest the amount of a ingredient in a formula will be placed first under the ingredients statement of any product. The lowest amount of  ingredient in the formula of a product is listed last in the ingredients statement.

    Conclusion:

    In conclusion Coca Cola in any part of world will have alcohol in it. It was proved by a independent lab in Chicago area USA and also a lab in France by Le Monde Le Progres reported that 10 out of 19 sodas tested by the magazine contained alcohol, including Coke and Pepsi. The difference in MCG results and La Monde Le Progres of France is due to use of different instrument to detect ethyl alcohol and procedure itself.

    Here is statement from Dr. Pepper company who make Dr. Pepper, Canada Dry and 7 UP:

    010736289A


    The independent outside lab in Chicago area has found the following amount of alcohol in Coca Cola and 7 UP but nothing in Pepsi:

     

    The alcohol level in Coke was 0.0059 or 59 PPM 

    7 UP has shown higher level of alcohol of 0.048% or 480 PPM.

    The Pepsi has showed less than 0.001% or less than 10 PPM (Instrument cannot detect less than 0.001% it means zero results.

    The source of alcohol in soft drinks comes only from natural flavor, all other ingredients do not posses any alcohol.

    If the ingredients statement of US made Coca Cola, Pepsi and 7 UP is same in any country of the world then alcohol will be detected in Coca Cola and 7 UP but alcohol will not be detectable in Pepsi.

  • This is with regard to the comment on your website, about Carbon dioxide being Halal because it is a chemical gas. Nowadays, a lot of Carbon dioxide comes from alchohol sources in some parts of the world (mostly distilleries and sometimes breweries also). Does the source of the Carbon dioxide gas (in this case during alcohol production) matter in whether it is Halal or not? I look forward to hearing from you whether Carbon dioxide used from alcohol sources is still considered halal or not. - Imrn
  • AOA

    This is a very good question. Carbon dioxide is produced from five different 1. from   carbon dioxide springs, 2. a by-product of hydrogen production plants, 3. From combustion of fossil fuels, 4. by-product of fermentation of sugar in the brewing of beer, and other alcoholic beverages, 5. decomposition of limestone.

    We do not know the source of CO2 when it is used in food products only the manufacturer knows it and use the least expensive CO2.

    There is fact that CO2 along ethyl alcohol is produced during the fermentation of sugar during the proofing of bread dough. CO2 makes bread dough to rise. It is also produced during proofing of pita bread but it is knock out by making holes on the pita dough. We eat the bread and pita or Nan every day which is made with CO2 a byproduct of sugar fermentation of yeast leavened wheat dough. Carbon dioxide and ethylene gasses are produced by ripening fruits.

    Carbon dioxide produced during fermentation of sugar during alcohol beverage production. Since it is gas, it will release from fermentation material and collected while fermentation is going on. Although it is a byproduct of sugar fermentation but it will not remained in it.

    Although I do not have chance to speak to our ulema because of Ramadan but I will consult with them but my personal opinion is that I cannot call carbon dioxide as Haram on the basis that it is release from fermentation material and will not remain the part of fermentation material while brewer yeast remained with fermentation material in the beer making and ethyl alcohol leached into brewer yeast cells.

    When fruits breath ethylene and carbon dioxide out, the carbon dioxide developed during bread baking, it is same carbon dioxide which release from alcoholic beverage fermentation so it will not be assign as Haram if it obtained from alcoholic beverages.

  • I've known from your website that most "natural flavors" are Haram, because companies use alcohol as a solvent. I got worried after reading that, as most juice and similar products in Egypt contain "natural flavor" in their ingredients. But I think that, in a Muslim country like Egypt, manufacturers don't use alcohol as solvents. Do you know if there are other solvents can be used in general instead of alcohol? - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Alcohol is used in flavor in most Muslim countries and they allowed foreign made food products which are made with alcohol containing flavor. So you to find out in Egypt.

    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.

    FD&C Red 40 & Yellow 5 or FD&C Blue 1 are chemical dyes, lakes and they are Halal if used as powder or granular forms but if they have to use as liquid then vegetable oil or glycerin is added as a solvent. Glycerin can be made from pork or beef or vegetable fat. Only vegetable fat based glycerin is Halal.

    A kosher symbol such as U or K  on any food package containing red 40 or yellow 5 indicates that either Red 40 or Yellow 5 is used either as a dry powder or if it is used as in liquid form in the product then vegetable oil or vegetable fat based glycerin was used as a solvent.

  • Assalam-u-Alaikum, I have a question about "distilled vinegar" or "brandy vinegar".Is it Halal or Haram??everyone has a different opinion about it,I live Germany and here almost in every sauce and other stuff like fish,or tuna fish,and in almost all ready meals there is always this brandy vinegar,even in stores where only halal food is avalable.Thats why i am really confused,if it is realy Halal or not! And are alkoholic perfums allowed?also in many soaps there is alcohol present and we usually dont see in such things wether they are with alocohol or not.So is it not allowed to use perfums or soaps with alcochol? Wassalam Sadia - aliya
  • AOA

    There is no distilled vinegar but there is distilled white vinegar which is a Halal vinegar. If brandy vinegar is made from brandy then it is not Halal. Distilled vinegar is not same as brandy vinegar. Brandy vinegar is not Halal please avoid those products which contain brandy vinegar.

    We can live without sauces (Halal sauces can be home made). Please avoid fishor tuna wich is made with brandy vinegar.

    Alert Title Description Date
    Nestle's Indian made Maggi Noodle Soups are not Halal

    There are used to be few Maggi Noodle Soups with Vegetarian Green Dot under Square Symbol but that symbol is not any more on any Maggi Noodle Soups.

    The ingredients listed on Maggi Noodle Soups look to be Halal but they do not report Hidden Haram Ingredients on the ingredients statement. Then how a Muslim consumers know for sure that there is no pork by product or ethyl alcohol based ingredients are used as a processing aid or Hidden Ingredients.

    So MCG decided to assign all Magi Noodles Soups without Halal or Kosher or Vegetarian symbol on the package as NOT HALAL status.

    You can e-mail to those chocolate company which has kosher symbol on the package and contains flavor:

    " is alcohol used as a solvent in flavor; 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 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 alcohol was used or not in the flavor as a solvent. The consumer department can not answer this question because they do not have access to specification of ingredients".
