  • Salaam, I bought some Hunt's Tomato Paste and there is a OU symbol on it but it said natural flavor. I was very unsure about it because of the stuff on your website about alcohol being in the natural and artificial flavor. This is what I got from the people who make Hunt's Tomato paste. plz tell me if this is reliable. Consumer Affairs Email Response (Case#: 61570333) conagra_care@conagra.epowercenterdirect.com 1:12 PM Hello, Thank you for your email concerning our Hunt's Tomato Paste. There is no alcohol in this product nor used in the manufacture of this product. Thanks again for your feedback. We're listening! I hope you have a great day! Susan Consumer Affairs Representative ConAgra Foods Case: 61570333 - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Some companies Like Kraft who manufacture BBQ Sauces and Hunt who manufacturer tomato product use Oleoresin of Black Pepper in their products and report as Natural Flavor under ingredients statement. So Hunt's Tomato Paste is a Halal product.

But I never heard about vegetable L-Cysteine. So please call the company tell above four sources and ask which vegetable source they use to make L-Cysteine.

  • I like to know is NUTRILITE™ Protein Powder Halal or not .NUTRILITE™ Protein Powder. http://www.nutrilite.com/en-us/Nature/Products/protein-powder.aspx According to their website NUTRILITE Protein Powder provides a natural, lean protein with the added benefits of naturally occurring soy isoflavones. It also provides balanced amounts of the essential and non-essential amino acids. Protein plays a leading role in your body's growth and maintenance. Because your body does not store excess protein, daily intake is necessary. Unfortunately, many protein sources – such as red meat, cheese, eggs and whole milk – also have high levels of fat and cholesterol. Product Benefits NUTRILITE Protein Powder gives you a nutritious alternative to meats and dairy products. NUTRILITE Protein Powder provides a natural supply of essential amino acids and non-essential amino acids. It is unflavored, neutral tasting, making it the ideal addition to your favorite foods and drinks. NUTRILITE Protein Powder is certified Kosher and Halal. NUTRILITE Protein Powder is the perfect protein alternative for those seeking a lean source of protein in their diets. - S

    They claim their products are Kosher and Halal certified but if write kosher or Halal under the search, it will says the page can not be found. They are listed under www.koshervitamins.com

    It is possible they are Kosher or Halal certified by unreliable organizations. MCG do not consider this Amway vitamins as Halal.

  • ASC, I recently emailed Barilla America about their Tomato and Basil Pasta Sauce because I was suspicious about the natural flavor ingredient. I hope this is enough to update the pasta sauce section because the last time it was updated was in 2009. Jazaka'Allah. March 5, 2013 Barilla Case ID: 131371 Inbox x ConsumerRelations@consumerrelations.epowercenterdirect.com 9:14 AM (6 hours ago) to me Dear Huda, Thank you for your recent E-mail to Barilla America, Inc. Upon researching your inquiry, I was able to find that none of our products contain pork or alcohol. Barilla is the best-selling pasta company worldwide, and we take pride in our product, right down to every last package. For over 130 years, four generations of the Barilla family have maintained the tradition of producing the finest pasta and sauces in the world. Thank you again for your support and we appreciate you taking the time to let us know your thoughts. We hope that you continue to enjoy Barilla Pasta & Sauces. Regards, Traci Consumer Response Representative Barilla America, Inc. www.barilla.com - Huda
  • AOA

    This statement is wrong because Barilla made alcohol containing liquor in their product. From our website:

    haram Green & Black Olive Pasta Sauce Pasta Sauce Barilla Contains wine 10-01-09

    How could she say no alcohol. These people look at ingredient and find no alcohol and wrote to you no alcohol. Alcohol is the hidden part of wine and also flavors. Barilla Products are updated in 2012. This update is not even a year old.

  • I asked before about baskin robins ice cream, and I open there website and they wrote all ingridents for each kind of flavor.. So u can check it pls and change some of ur food product list bcoz there some kinds u wrote it halal and it is not like peanut butter bcoz it has carrageenan not ethyl alcohol . Also I want to ask about some kinds have yellow5 and yellow 6 but it is artificial so is it halal? - Zain
  • AOA

    Dunkin Donut is updated and I am going to update the Baskin Robbin product. All flavors in Baskin Robbin ice cream are made with alcohol so they are not Halal. If Carrageenan present and if there is no flavor then this ice cream is mushbooh.

     

    Red 40 & Yellow 5 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.

  • Salaam, I wish to know what your views are on the Halal Food Authority. They appear to have approved Kellogs cereals so I ate them with confidence. But now I feel uneasy thinking that the HFA may class alcoholic flavourings as halal. The HFA are also helping run the Halal food fesitival so again I don not know if it would be wise to attend. I also want to know what you think about refraining from such flavourings. I have recently contacted many brands and try to refrain from anything that may contain such flavourings. I know it is very difficult and I am worried about having dinner at the home of other muslims who obviously don't worry about alcoholic flavourings. Am I being rude if I don't any food that may contain such flavourings? What should I do if I find myself in such a situation? - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Halal Food Authority is in UK and I do not know their Halal criteria for flavoring. I do not whether they Halal certify food product made from alcohol containing flavor or not.

    I never eat or buy any food product with flavoring. At Indian/Pakistan party I avoid jelling based desert or topping on the dessert. I go to those Muslims who I know buy hand slaughtered zabiha meat. But I eat all Indian/Pakistani made foods which uses Indian/Pakistani Masala. I avoid ice cream but eat Khaeer, Julab Jaman and other Indian Pakistani sweets.

    If you are Indian or Pakistani then you have to avoid above dessert and eat only vegetable curries with Naan or plain rice. Flavoring is used in dessert only not in main dish.

And I sent u a question before about carrageenan and u said if it is contain ethyl alcohol it is haram but the wrote only carrageenan in I tridents so how we' ll know ? - Zain
  • AOA

    Carrageenan is not used in bread. Please provide me the name of bread and brand name. Kosher symbol does not consider alcohol as not kosher. Kosher certified products are made alcohol containing flavor and Carrageenan. All ice cream with Kosher symbol with Carrageenan are Mushbooh, you have to investigate with manufacturer whether ethyl alcohol not Isopropyl alcohol is used during processing of Carrageenan.

    Ethyl alcohol alone or Isopropyl alcohol alone or KCL chemical alone can be use be used during processing of Carrageenan. Except Ethyl alcohol all others are Halal. I do not know about Trident gum and it may not be Halal.

  • Assalaamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu, I was wondering if ''Lancashire farm natural probiotic yogurt' made by Pakeeza in the UK is halaal. It is made with bio cultures is gluten free and vegetarian certified and has ''no added ingredients''; however it does list on its packaging it contains added biocultures bifideobacterium bb12 and Lactobacillus acidophilus. JazakAllahu Khairan for your service. - Maryan
  • AOA

    This is from our new book " Food Ingredients and Thier Halal Status" it is available in UK as E-Book, if it contains yeast then it is not Halal. Please conform with manufacturer whether probiotic yeasts were used:

     

    14. Probiotics: The most widely accepted definition of a probiotic is the one suggested by a joint FAO/WHO working Group (2002): Live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amount confer a health benefit on the host.

    The organisms are bacteria such as Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium, Lactococcus, Leuconstoc, Pediococcus, Propionibacterium, Streptococcus, Bacillus and yeast such as Saccharomyces, Schizosaccharomyces, Xantothophyllomyces. From Halal point of view, only probiotic bacteria which perform lactic acid fermentation by producing lactic acid are consider Halal. The probiotic yeasts which perform alcoholic fermentation by producing alcohol are consider not Halal.

    Only manufacturers know what type of probiotic microorganism were used in probiotic foods. Then we have to contact them to verify the Halal status of probiotic microorganism used in the probiotic foods.

  • AOA

    Sauerkraut is Halal because it is not result of alcoholic fermentation. All Lactic Acid fermentaions are Halal. If probiotic involves only bacteria who produces lactic then it is Halal but if is done by yeast which is responsible for alcoholic fermentation then probiotic containing yeast are not Halal.

  • AOA

    From our ALERT SECTION:

    Some important information about eating in restaurants in USA and Canada

    The following important things should be considered while eating in a regular restaurant in USA and Canada. This is for those Muslims who only eat the Zabiha meat. Most of us go to seafood restaurants to eat fish because it is Halal. But we do not have information on how it is cooked or made. Here are the following things we have to keep in our mind about eating fish dish in a restaurant. Not all fish items in fast foods or restaurants are Halal. Not because of fish itself but due to the following reasons: 1. Coating and batter on the fish: Fried fish items are made with coating or batter. The coating or batter of the fish may contain whey, colors and flavors which may not be Halal. Some fish are dipped in beer batter before frying and it is known as beer battered fish. This is type of fish is Haram. The McDonald and Burger King coating is Halal in USA and Canada. 2. Frying media and fryer: Coated and battered fish items are fried in shortening at 360F. If the coating or batter for fried fish is Halal and if it is fried in vegetable shortening with or without vegetable fat based Mono & Diglycerides then the fried fish is Halal. But if same fryer and vegetable shortening was used to fry non zabiha chicken nuggets OR beer battered fish then fried fish items will not be Halal because of left over batter and fat from the chicken. Burger King's Big Fish and Long John Silver are fried their fish items in the same fryer and vegetable shortening use for frying the non-zabiha chicken nuggets in USA and Canada. This is the reason their fish items are not considered Halal. Same thing may happens in restaurants.Beside Burger King also fried pork patties in the same vegetable oil. So it is necessary to avoid eating fried fish in a restaurants because you do not know the Halal status of the coating and batter and use of vegetable shortening and where they fried. 3.Broiled or Grilled Fish: If the fish is broiled or grilled with cooking wine then it will not be Halal. If the fish is broiled or grilled with AA butter then it will be Halal. Sometimes spices are also added to it, we have to make sure that they used 100% spices not the seasoning because seasoning may contain whey, color and flavors which may not be Halal. 4. Sauce with Broiled or Grilled fish: Most of the time broiled fish or grilled fish comes to the table with different sauces on the top of the fish. Dill Sauce with broiled or grilled Salmon is an example. Dill sauce, Tartar sauce and other sauces contain dairy ingredients which may not be Halal. So you have to avoid it and use salt, pepper, lemon or A1 sauce which is a Halal sauce. 5. Broiled Vegetable: Sometimes bacon or ham is added to vegetables, so ask about them. 6. Rolls/Bread: Rolls/bread and cheese rolls are provided at tables, these rolls and bread are mostly made from frozen dough or mixes. These frozen dough or mixes are made with dough conditioners which may not be Halal. Cheese may be made with animal enzymes. 7. Garden Salad, Salad Dressing and coleslaw: Garden Salad in most of the restaurants comes with croutons, cheese, Chinese noodles, and bacon bits. They all should be avoided because croutons may be made with Romano cheese and other ingredients which may not be Halal. Cheese may not be Halal as well as Chinese noodles. Bacon bits are Haram. Salad dressing is made with cheese, emulsifiers which may not be Halal. You request a garden salad without cheese, croutons, Chinese noodles and bacon bits. Lemon juice or olive oil and distilled white vinegar can be used. Coleslaw is made with cabbage and dressing containing dairy ingredients which may not be Halal. 8. Soups: Soups are made with soup bases and concentrates. These bases and concentrates are made with dairy ingredients which may not be Halal and they also contain non zabiha chicken fat. Left over gravy from cooked meats are used to make a soup. You do not know what kind of meat gray was used. This gravy is provide extra flavor to the soup. Clam Chowder is made with dairy ingredients which may not be Halal and bacon is also added to the clam chowder. Soup has to be avoided. 8. Rice Pilaf: Rice pilaf is always made with non zabiha chicken broth, so it has to be avoided. Steam rice is Halal. 9. Vegetables: Vegetable are sometimes cooked with bacon and ham, so it is necessary to ask ahead of time. 10. Baked Potato/French Fries: The ingredients of French fries in restaurants and the way they fried are not known to public. They may be made with Haram ingredients. They may be fried in animal fat shortening. So they have to be avoided unless you are sure that they are Halal. Baked Potato is Halal but the margarine and sour cream may not be Halal. Sometimes they bring with margarine and sour cream and with bacon on the top of the potato. So either you eat with salt & pepper or with butter if it is AA. If they provide you the sour cream and butter in the small packed container with ingredients statements and kosher symbol and if the kosher certification meet the Halal requirements then you can use it. Eggs for the breakfast: Scramble eggs at restaurants are not 100% eggs but other ingredients such as emulsifires are present. Restauarnts get the eggs in batters from food service company such as Sysco Company, they also supplies egg beaters which is Halal only if no alcohol is used in flavor. It is possible thye fried on the same hot plate as bacon. 12. Dessert: Pies, Cheesecake, Cakes may contain gelatin, liquor, dairy ingredients, flavors and other ingredients which may not be Halal and should be avoided. Ice Cream may contains emulsifiers which may not be Halal and flavor may contain alcohol.
