She added that product signed with halal that doesn't have its corresponding number from the certifier are not halal. Thus, in that case the product may fall into "doubtful" category.

  • I found through the Internet and a cooking programme that pectin can be made using ethanol as well as propanol. Would you then advise us to stop eating jams/jellies until it is confirmed that the company/brand do not use the ethanolic process when dealing with pectin? I feel quite worried now. How many more named ingredients originate from plants but are mixed with ethanol for production purposes? Also, I would like to know whether different kinds of salts and emulsifiers found as ingredients in foods are free from ethanol? I often see products that do not state the umbrella term "flavorings" but then may say "emulsifiers" and name a few. Would they be permissible and alcohol free? - Anonymous user

    It is not that they do not use alcohol in brewer after they obtained the brewer yeast from their supplier because suppliers can obtained cheap brewer yeast from beer by products. These beer comaonies have no use of brewer yeast after they make the beer. They sell brewer yeast to food ingredients suppliers which they sell to other company. I want see a response from them that the brewer yeast they use in their products are not obtained from by-product of beer making.

  • What is the source of Gelatin in multivitamin Centrum, , marketed in Pakistan, control no. F88406, made in USA ? - Kanwal Khan
  • AOA

    First of Pakitani is a Muslim country and should not allow USA made vitamins with gelatin. It could be Haram if gelatin is from pork or not Halal if gelatin is from non zabiha beef.

    From our Alert section:

    Alerts:

    The Alert section also deals with food, non food items and any relevant news items. These alerts aware Muslim consumer�s about Halal & Not-Halal status of both food and non food items.

    TITLE: Vitamins: What make them Haram or Non Halal

    The following factors make Vitamins as Haram or Non Halal:

    1. Gelatin:

    Gelatin listed under ingredients statement or part of the capsule makes vitamins

    as Haram if gelatin was obtained from pork or Non Halal if it was obtained from non zabiha beef.

    Only Fish gelatin is Halal and it should be mentioned under ingredients statement.

    The capsules must be made with cellulose to be consider Halal.

    2. Magnesium Stearate:

    Magnesium Stearate is helps in flowing the other ingredients and is a fat based emulsifier and it could be obtained either from pork fat or vegetable fat. Only vegetable fat Magnesium Stearate is consider Halal.

    3. Hidden Ingredients or Processing Aid Ingredients:

    Every vitamin is made with Hidden Ingredients or Processing Aid Ingredients because FDA allows manufacturer to add a maximum of 2% of formula as Hidden Ingredients or Processing Aid Ingredients. FDA also allows manufacturer not to mentioned under the ingredients statement. The hidden or processing aid ingredients must be from Halal sources.

    Halal or Kosher symbol on the vitamins package protects Muslims from added Haram Hidden Ingredients or Processing Aid Ingredients.

    4. Coating on Vitamins:

    Pharmaceutical glaze, vegetable beet glaze, Shellac, Lac Resin are used to coat the vitamin tablets to protect them from breaking. All glazes are made by dissolving insect secretion Shellac in alcohol and applying the glaze on the tablets. So please do not buy the vitamins with coating.

    5. Extracts:

    Many source of vitamins are also obtained from plant extracts such as Bioperine (black pepper fruit extract), Tomato Extract (lycopene), Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract and Panax Ginseng Root Extract. They become Non Halal if alcohol was used as a solvent. It is better to avoid those vitamins with extract otherwise you have to call the manufacturer to find out whether alcohol was used as a solvent or not. Most of the time alcohol is used for extraction from plants.

    6. Natural Flavor:

    Alcohol might be used as a solvent in natural flavor so it is better to avoid consuming vitamins with natural flavors. Majority of natural flavors are made with vanilla. If vanilla is used as a natural flavor then the natural flavor will not be Halal.

    7. Chewable Vitamins:

    All chewable vitamins specially for kids are made with natural flavor. You have to contact the manufacturer whether alcohol was used as a solvent or not.

    8. Ingredients where alcohol was used during its processing and they are added to vitamins:

    Alcohol is used during the manufacturing of some ingredients such as Stevia which is a natural sweetener called Steviol Glycol. It is extracted from Stevia plant by water but crystallized it by use of ethyl alcohol.

Again, I appreciate all the hard work that you guys have put into this website. May Allah bless you! - Anonymous user

    If Nestel said that they use alcohol in flavor before drying then that dried flavor is not Halal so does the all coffeemate creamers.

    CoffeeMate products are not Halal both dry and liquid

     

    Muslim Consumer Group is educating Muslim consumers that whenever the word "Natural Flavor" attached to Vanilla food products, it means vanilla natural flavor is extracted with alcohol and water from vanilla beans. One of our sister questioned Nestle regarding their claims "No Alcohol is used in Coffee Mate's flavor" including the Coffee Mate's  Liquid Vanilla Latte which is made with Natural and Artificial Flavor. Here is their response:

    Dear Ms------,

    Thank you for taking the time to contact Nestlé® Coffee-mate® Non-Dairy Creamer regarding the alcohol content of our product. We welcome questions and comments from loyal consumers such as yourself and appreciate this opportunity to assist you.

    You are correct that natural vanilla is obtained by alcohol extraction. In fact, there are FDA standards of identity for vanilla extract. However, all of the flavors used in Coffee-mate are dry flavors so any alcohol will be removed during the drying process.

    At Nestlé, we are dedicated to you and your family throughout every phase of your lives. Your feedback is valuable to us, as it helps us to improve our products and services.

    We appreciate your interest in our products and hope you will visit our website often for the latest information on our products and promotions.

    Sincerely,
    Beverly Watson
    Consumer Response Representative
    Ref #:19997486

    If they say no alcohol in flavor, we recommend Muslim consumers to ask to clarify whether it is originally made from liquid flavors then dried to make dry flavors.  I myself exposed to this experience when I was working for Best Eaton Donut chain in Rhode Island when we are using dry flavor for vanilla donuts. The flavor supplier told me it contained dried natural vanilla flavor. This means the alcohol is evaporated during spray drying processing.

    So please do not consume any Natural Vanilla flavor containing food products or where Vanilla is product name with Natural & Artificial flavor. If vanillin or artificial vanilla flavor mentioned then there is no alcohol in it.

    This is the reason we assign "Not Halal" status to all Coffee Mate dry powder or liquid products.

  • Hi Mark,

    In my opinion Sulfuric Acid does not need to be Halal certified unless Haram ingredients such as alcohol is used during the processing of it. But there some customers they want to make sure that the sulphuric acid is Halal and you can not argue with them.

  • There are many cookies and cakes that has natural vanilla flavoring in them although they are stated as suitable for vegetarians to consume. I read here that vanilla flavouring is extracted in alcohol. So could you please clear my doubts on the above cookies n cakes products. Thank you so much. - Yasmin
  • AOA

    If they use natural vanilla flavoring then they are not Halal. They are Halal only if they use Vanillin.

  • Do you mean "but orange juice will not become haram" in your answer to my1st question and if alcohol is produced naturally is it not still a najis thing, so how can bread be consumed? I thought it is only permissibe to have bread made from barley? - Sameenah
  • AOA

    Orange will also be Halal. Bread and Nan are always Halal. Vinegar made from dilute alcohol is Halal. Minute amount of alcohol produced by natural process in fruit vegetaable, Nan, Bread is Halal. The problem comes when alcohol is added by man.

  • If baker's yeast produces alcohol during fermentation then how is it halal? - Sameenah
  • AOA

    The ornage juice you drink contains minute amount of alcohol naturally produced but it will become Haram. Similarly yeast do not have alcohol in its cells before it added to flour, water, salt, vegetable oil to make Nan then during proofing or risoing of dough Zymase enzyme comes out of yeast cells attack suhar to split it into acrbon dioxide and alcohol. This type alcohol which produced due to natural process is consider Halal but man added alcohol to flavor is consider not Halal because man has choice to use Halal alternate.

  • I need to fatwa for weight loss product herbal life care nutrition.actually i have dought this product its completely halal or not i think its mixng haraam.in this product are given 4 items (formula,1+ formula,3 + callolus + afresh drink powder) so i request to you please give me solution or fatwa with full proof to this product immediately,thanking you - Mohammed Mustafa Hussain

    I am not a Mufti or Islamic scholar to issue Fatwa. Since Herblife products contain non zabiha chicken and are not Halal or Kosher certified then they are not Halal. You has to use other methods such as controlling the consumption of carbohydrate and fat in your diet to control your weight issue. Nafeel fasting or rouza is a solution in Islam to control over weight. Inshallah Ramadan is coming next month then it will be another avenue for you to control the weight.

    Herblife is nothing but diet control products which you can do it yourself. You can seek advise from a Islamic scholar.
