  • Assalamualaikum, I think you have answered this question before, but I cant seem to find it on the website and would appreciate it if you could answer it for me. Is whey powder from milk halal? It says suitable for vegetarians on the packet of cookies that I bought. Jazakh Allah - Tamanna
  • AOA

    From our ingredients section:

     

    Whey and its Halal Status

    Muslims think that whey is milk based ingredient, it has to be Halal but answer is no. There are two kinds of whey, one is sweet or rennet whey and other is acid whey. Acid whey is obtained during the making of acid type of cheese such as cottage cheese. Sweet or rennet whey is used more in food products then acid whey. Sweet whey or rennet whey is a by-product of rennet cheese making such as cheddar cheese or Mozzarella cheese. Whey is a portion of milk remaining after coagulation and removal of curd. Whey is Halal only if the Halal starter culture bacteria, Halal medium on which starter culture bacteria are grown (Starter culture bacteria are Halal if they obtained from milk source not meat source and media on which these starter culture bacteria grown has to be made from Halal ingredients such milk). These requirements can only obtained if the cheese and whey are Halal or Kosher certified (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements).

    A Halal or Kosher symbol (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements) or a claim "Suitable for Vegetarian " in Europe or in other countries appears on a food package containing whey indicates that it is manufactured under Halal or Kosher supervision or under vegetarian supervision. Acid Whey which is obtained from cottage has the same Halal requirements as cheddar or Mozzarella cheese except rennet is not used but starter cultures are added and they have to be from milk source not meat source. Starter culture requirement for acid whey is same cheddar or Mozzarella cheese.

  • Dear brother, Assalam o alaikum, I wanted to know whether behenyl alcohol and phenoxyethanol are halal ingredients or not. Also would appreciate if you can share any information whether shiseido products and their shampoos are safe to be used by muslims. I approached the company to inquire whether their products contain any animals ingredients and ethyl alcohol. They replied that their products do not contain animals ingredients and ethyl alcohol. However, their products contain other types of alcohol like behenyl alcohol and phenoxyethanol. Appreciate if you can clarify its halal status. Request your earnest response. Jazak Allah - Ambreen
  • AOA

     Phenoxyethanol is a Halal ingredient but behenyl alcohol is a mushbooh ingredient. It is not alcohol but a fat which could be from pork. Only manufacturer knows the source of it. If they say animal by product then it means the behenyl alcohol is made from soy fat or vegetable fat. So you can use it.

  • It's called Hero Fruit Spread(s). Halal or haram? They have a website (So I'm hoping you use it and you don't tell me you "have no information"). I've eaten it before. I liked it because it has no high fructose corn-syrup in it. At least not the strawberry kind. Anyway, thanks again for your time. Has a U in a circle on it. As salam alaikum - OpenEyes
  • AOA

    I can not provide Halal or Not Halal status on any food product without full ingredients list. The Hero website do not provide the ingredients list, this product is only available in Northeast supermarkets. In 2009 I found them in Stop N Shop supermarket. They listed as "Heio" or may be it is "HERO" due to a typo in 2009 A comprehensive lsit of Halal Food Products in US Supermarkets. Th Halal Food book list only Apricot Preserve, Strawberry Preserve, Black Cherry Preserve, Orange Delica Marmalde, Raspberry Preserve but no mention of fruit spread.

    Are you making joke about "I have no information" or acusing me that I do it purposley. If so you are wrong. because I the only one who do research and maintained not only this website but also Canadain website. How much you can demand from one person to provide all the information for US and Canadian Muslims. Beside I have my own problems. Beside all this short coming I answered  all questions and research if time permits because it is my duty to help Muslims to consume only Halal foods.

  • AOA

    Mostly liquid flavor used for liquid products contains alcohol but find out from the company about use of alcohol in natural & artificial maple flavor by writing:

     

    " 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".

  • Are fruit juices like real halal - Asifaferoz
  • AOA

    All 100% fruit juices without flavor are Halal except apple juice which requires a kosher symbol on the apple juice bottle to be consider Halal because some apple juice companies used pork or non zabiha beef during apple juice processing and will not write on ingredients statement because it is consider as a hidden or processing aid ingredient.

  • i saw that u told that propylene glycol is always halal since it is petroleum based....but in one article i saw as follows:: ""Propylene glycol is a colourless odorless organic compound which is sometime used as a solvent in food colours and flavours. Commercially, it is either derived from propylene oxide, or from glycerol. If it is derived from propylene oxide then it would be permissible. However if it is derived from glycerol then it is possible that glycerol was obtained from hydrolyzing process for animal fats and oils. If this ingredient is from animal slaughtered in halal way, then it will be halal for consumption, otherwise it will not be halal."" so which one i should prefer....plz guide me the right way....... this is second time i am asking same question since u didnt answer my first.....may be u forgetton or researching.....anyways,plz guide me the right answers................ - ayaan
  • AOA

    Please do not confuse yourself with reading articles on food ingredients because they do not represent the commercial production. Food companies do not use sources mentioned in books or articles but their production is based on cost. The article you are reading is general article not professional food industry article or magazines. The commercial production is based on cost not what says in the book.

    Propylene Glycol in USA and Canada is made from petroleum base.

  • aslm alkm...i saw in ur fiqah science..about distilled vinegar...there.at the end of the product, we get acetic acid +water+ a minute amount of dilute ethyl alcohol....and u concluded that distilled white vinegar is halal but its raw material is not halal...what you mean by that....plz give me clear image on that....if small amount of dilute alcohol is present in the vinegar then how come it be halal..?? According to a Hadith small portion of intoxicant is also Haram as large portion. in case of wine vinegar.,since it is not 100% vinegar,it is not considered as halal,right..??? same is the case of distilled vinegar...it is not 100%(as per u,contains minute amount of dilute alcohol in its product)....plz clarify my doubt......may allah reward u for what u r doing for muslims............... fee amaanee allah...... - ayaan
  • AOA

    You have to read sharia books. In which they say a Haram source can change to Halal through Tabdeele Mahiya. According ouer Mufti Mohammed Hafeezur Rahman Khan all the resulting componenets in vinagar are Halal including a very minute amount of alcohol. Then you should not eat fruits and vegetable because alcohol is produced during maturing process from green fruit to ripe fruits and this is natural process. Anthing which naturally produced with minor amount of alcohol is Halal. Vinegar is produced naturally during the days of ourProphet Sayyidina Mohammed Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallum and it contains minor amount of alcohol.

    Vinegar can be made naturally are also by commercial method of innoculating organism to alcohol. Alcohol is 100% alcohol but wine is not 100% alcohol but it conatins other things. The conversion of alcohol to vinegar is close to 1oo% of acetic acids and water but conversion of wine to wine vinegar involed only conversion of alcohol not other components of wine.

    Specially denatured alcohol can be used in alotion.

    From our FAQ:

     

    What are Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Butyl Alcohol, Lauryl and Oleyl Alcohol used in Personal Care Products. Are they Halal:

    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.
