There is no glazing agent....is there any thing like shellac as hidden ingreient?as u answered before kindly inform me is it halal? - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Usally Sprinkle cake decor are made with shellac since they use carnauba wax which is a Halal wax but this decor Halal only if there is a kosher symbol on it because they may use liquid yellow 5, yellow 6 and blue 1. If it has kosher symbol then the hidden ingredient in these liquid artificial colors will be vegetable fat based glycerin. In the absense of kosher symbol then it could be pork fat based glycerin or you have to contact the manufacturer who know the solvent in artificial loquid colors.

  • what is the difference btwn vanilla and vanilla extract example vanilla in corn syurp and vanilla extract - zai
  • AOA

    The FDA requirement for Vanilla Extract is of mimimum 35% alcohol otherwise it will not call vanilla extract while does not have any minimum requirements for alcohol. So amount of alcohol in vanilla flavor varies. Vanilla flavor can be dried to get rid of alcohol but still is not Halal. Where vanilla extract is always in liquid form.
