  • im from india and want to know that maggi healthy chicken soup and maggi chicken noodles is halal or not.i have surfed on the net but nowhere i have any answer. please can u ans my question - sabiha
  • AOA

    They are not Halal. From our Alert section:

     

    TITLE: Nestle India 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 the 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 a how a Muslim consumers know for sure there is no pork by product or ethyl alcohol based ingredients 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.

  • Assalaamu Alaikum I am purchasing vanilla essence that is being manufactured in uk. If no alcohol was used as an extraction process or as a solvent at any part of the manufacturing process, would it be halal? It is propylene gylcol based. - Aileen
  • AOA

    Vanilla generally obtained from alcohol extraction then they evaporate it and add Propylene Glycol to claim alcohol free. Halal vanilla is extracted with CO2 gas which is very expensive.

  • Thank you for suggesting using Ajax for me. Appreciated. As it is though, with these things, one question seems to breed another. The one Ajax bottle I saw, that seemed to be the strongest in terms of fighting bacteria, said "bleach alternative" on it. But it had a kosher certification on it. My question is, even though you suggest we wash thoroughly, after using the product, because of hidden ingredients, are ANY Ajax products off limits (Even with a kosher certification)? Or can we use any one so long as theres a U in a circle on the bottle, and we wash it off thoroughly, when done using it? Thank you, in advance, for your time As salam alaikum - OpenEyes
  • AOA

    Halal or Kosher symbol protect Muslims from Haram Hidden Ingredients.

  • Is fermented soy a halal product if no alcohol is used? And the same for nutritional yeast? - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    "What are the ingredients of Haram Soy Sauce

    The Naturally Brewed Soy is the Haram soy sauce. It is made just like wine containing 2-3% alcohol. The ingredients list contains Wheat, Soy and other ingredients. Food companies do not mention Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce under the ingredients statement. They just mention soy sauce but within parenthesis they write Wheat and Soy. This is the only way to find a Haram Soy Sauce."

    Yeast and certain bacteria used in fermenting the soy and they produce alcohol. I never came across non alcoholic soy fermentation.

    If there is no alcohol production during manufacturer of nutritional yeast then it is Halal.

  • AOA

    Nutritional Yeast is produced by culturing Saccharomyces cerevisiae and culturing media is  glucose, often from either sugarcane or beet molasses. When yeast is ready then it is killed or deactivate. Yeast is reproduce by budding or spores or conjugation. So there is no alcohol production during production of nutritional yeast. But the requirement is that yeast has to be baker yeast not brewer yeast.

  • Salam, How do you know that elevation burger is not halal? I also suspect it's not halal, but I would like to confirm how you investigated. JazakAllah - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Elevation burger is Virginia and like all other burger they are not slaughtered by a Muslim. It is not Halal because Allah's name was not announced while slaughtering. Please read suarat Enam of Holy Quran about annocing the name of Allah on each animal while slaughetering. Killed animals demand justice at day judgement by killing them by men but when Muslims announced the name of Allah at the time slaughtering they will be happy to get slaughtered and they will not demand justice at the day of judgement.

  • what is actually propylene glycol?? i saw it in many of the cosmetics...i saw in ur site that it is always halal since it is petroleum base...but i saw in an article as below ""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 prefer.....???plz guide me the right way..... - ayaan

  • AOA Thank you! It is a raw fermented product said to contain healthy probiotics, so the ppl just cut up carrots and ginger and not sure if they ferment them first in salt n water and then add honey and olive oil and I guess the carrots will still be fermenting in that. Here is the product: http://www.rawliving.eu/raw-ginger-carrot-mix-500g.html But I just wanted to know for my own use, as I am interested in making my own fermented products at home, but just don't want to create any alcohol. Thank you - J
  • AOA

    The basic ingredient for alcoholic fermentation is the sugar. Both fruits and vegetable contains sugar. There is a Hadith for not saoking fruits such dates for certain period because at that time alcohol was not discovered but early Muslims knows it turn to alcoholic juice if you soak date or any other fruits in water. I will not advice to ferment fruit. Salt pickling of vegetables is Halal. Lactic acid fermentation is Halal of dairy ingredients but not alcoholic fermentation.

  • AOA

    Jumah Mubarak to you also. It requrires a kosher symbol to be Halal with any flavor. I do not understand how a vegetable mix will be cultured unless it contains dairy ingredients. You can wash the empty jar and use for other Halal purpose.

  • Assalaamu Alaikum I need to know if food can become haram in the following way. If someone touches an apple which has the wax coating and then proceeds to touch a carrot, is it then permissible to eat the carrot without washing it? Is the wax coating on the apples problem in the sense it 'contaminates' other foods by touching it. This is based on the assumption that alcohol and shellac could have been part of the wax coating on the apple. I am having waswas over this. - Aileen
  • AOA

     

    All apple produces put vegetable wax for shining but it is a rule for Muslims that every vegetables or fruits must be wash before consuming because this is Islamic hygiene rules.

  • AOA. I live in Indian occupied Kashmir and i heard that maggi noodle contain enzyme porcine (taken from intestine of Pig). after a bit research i found that it is true, it is also mentioned here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maggi_noodles but then i came across your site and you have said that if it has green dot then it is halaal. although in india it has green dot but in now not sure whether it is halaal or not. now please tell me what to do. - Umair Shah
  • AOA

    The Indian and Pakistani stores in USA carry the Nestle Maggi noodles but on some I found a Green Dot under circle which indicates a vegetarian product and it does not have no flavor. It also veggie written on the package. May be it is for export but if could not find it then do not consume it. There is no such satement that Maggi Noodles are made with porcine enzyme at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maggi_noodles.You have to remember that all enzymes used in bakery products are Halal. Noodles does not need any enzyme but if the seasoning contain cheese then there is a possibility of porcine enzyme.

  • I saw in this website that Pillsbury Crescent is considered haram due to lack of kosher certification and so i did research on my own and found that its actually considered vegan through PETA.org. So, now I just want to find out if we should consider it off-limits or can we consume it? - jui
  • AOA

    Peta Org does not know how food products manufactured they even give Ok for alcohol containing products. They do not investigate the hidden ingredients in the foods. We do not what Haram hidden ingredients used in Pillsbury Crescents. So please avoid it.

  • 1. What is the reason for Juicy Juice not being halal? 2. Are the Nature's Nectar brand juices halal? - Fathima Shifana Zamaan
  • AOA

    Juicy Juice products are not kosher certified so we do not what hidden ingredients they use such as use of pork gelatin during the processing of apple juice. Nature's Nector's 100% Pure Orange Juice from Concentrate and 100% Pure Florida Orange Juice are only Halal if flavor is used. For apple juice it need a  kosher symbol on the package. Any other juices from Natuer's Nectar with flavor are not Halal because alcohol is used in flavor.
