  • Salam Aleikoum Wa Ramatoulah Wa Barakatouh, I have contacted Aunt Milli's concerning the breads 100% Whole Wheat Bread and 35 Calorie Whole Grain Bread. I asked them whether the 100% Whole Wheat Bread had kosher certified ingredients. I also asked them is they used ethyl alcohol for the 35 Calorie Whole Grain Bread. The following is the answer I received from Tara Withington, the Technical Service Manager at Aunt Millies Bakeries: Thank you for contacting us in regards to the 100% Whole Wheat Bread and the 35 Calorie Whole Grain Bread. The 100% Whole Wheat is not a Kosher Pareve item. The bread contains Whey, which is a milk ingredient. The majority of the rest of the ingredients are although Kosher Pareve ingredients. In the 35 Calorie Whole Grain bread we do not use ethyl alcohol in the natural and artificial flavoring. We do not use this in any of the ingredients in the bread. We hope this answered your questions. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask. Thank you again for maintaining MuslimConsumerGroup.com. May Allah give you a good day. - Tikyda Couassi-Ble

  • which soy sauce is halal to put in food. - shirin ali
  • AOA

    From our FAQ (please read our FAQ):

    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.

    What are the ingredients of Halal Soy Sauce:

    All purpose soy sauce or non naturally brewed soy sauce is a Halal soy sauce made from water, salt, hydrolyzed soy protein, corn syrup and sodium benzoate. La Choy All Purpose Soy sauce is a Halal Soy Sauce.

    Facts about Non Alcoholic Wine

     

    FACTS ABOUT NON ALCOHOLIC WINE OR BEER
                                                     
    This information is provided for Muslims all over the world so that they understand how a non alcoholic wine or beer is made and available throughout the world including in Muslim countries. The following are the facts about alcohol free wine, beer, its manufacture methods and its possible impact on Islamic Sharia(I am not a Alim but I will provide information so that the Muftiyans can  make their own fatwas).
    1. Fact number one, Alcohol free wine or beer is made from real wine or beer. Wines from grape, date, honey, wheat is Khamr and Khamr is Haram according to several ahadith.
    2. Questions for Muftiyans, do they think that every component of wine also Haram including water in wine even wine made from grape.
    The composition of wine is:
    Water 80-85%, Alcohol 10-20%, Acids 0.4 - 1%, Sugar 0.1%(because all sugar in grape is used to produce alcohol), Mineral Salts 0.2 to 0.4%, Coloring substances 0.01 to 0.5%,
    Aromatic substances 0.01 to 0.1%, Sulphites 10 to 200 Part Millions
     3. Manufacturing processes used in manufacture of alcohol free wine or beer:
     
    a. Alcohol free wine beverages is produced by using  US patented process(4775538) where table wine is combined with demineralized water and poured into a centrifugal evaporator where alcohol is spin off to produce a alcohol free wine base. Then grape juice concentrate is added to alcohol free wine base to make alcohol free wine.

    b. Vacuum  Distillation where real wine or real beer is exposed to vacuum. Where due to change in atmospheric pressure with low heat or no heat the alcohol is distilled off.
    c. Reverse Osmosis, a procedure used to clean impurities from drinking water. Most American homes has this unit under their kitchen sinks. The reverse Osmosis has filters with very minutes pores Through these pores filters only alcohol and water with volatile acids in wine or in beer is filtered out of wine or beer without heat. Then those volatile acid and water is put back to a mixture of syrupy mixture of sugar, flavor  compounds on the other side of filter after distilling out the alcohol from alcohol and water acid mixture. This is also called dealcoholized wine or beer.
     
    d. Non alcoholic sparkling wine or beer is made with a secondary fermentation to produce a non alcoholic sparkling wine or beer with less than 0.5% alcohol. Then carbon dioxide  is forced to make a carbonated non alcoholic beer.

    4. Another fact is that all the experts in this industry said that it is very difficult and very expensive to eliminate all alcohol from wine or beer. This is the reason Non Alcoholic beverages still contain some original alcohol from wine or beer. This leads to a US Federal Law about Non Alcoholic wine or beer which states that Non Alcoholic wine or beer can contain up to 0.5% "original alcohol of wine or beer by volume."
    If you consider above breakdown of grape wine, the non alcoholic grape wine contains  5%  to 10% original amount of wine in the Non Alcoholic grape wine based on 10% to 20% alcohol content in grape wine and if the Non Alcoholic grape wine contains maximum 0.5% original alcohol of wine or beer by volume according to US federal law.

    So based on this calculation a Muslim who decides to consume Non Alcoholic grape wine  is consuming 5% to 10% of original grape wine in Non Alcoholic grape wine.
    5. Another fact is that many producers of Non Alcoholic wine and beer want to keep the same original flavors compounds in Non Alcoholic wine or beer because to match original flavor and taste of wine or beer. Sometimes they add 2-2.5% residual sugar content to match a completely dry alcoholic wine. Some companies advertized that their Non Alcoholic wine or beer contains same original abundant flavors of original wine and beer.
     
    It was reported in research that It takes about 10 nonalcoholic malt beverages to equal the alcohol in one American-style lager.

    MCG thinks every component of prohibited wine or Khamr is also Haram same as every part of pig is Haram. But some Muftiyans may have different opinion.
    The purpose of this scientific information is to provide facts about Non Alcoholic wine or beer to every Muslims so that they can make decision to consume or not to consume Non Alcoholic wine or beer. But Muslim
     
    Consumer Group consider Non Alcoholic wine or beer as Haram beverage and recommend Muslims not to consume them.
     
    This article is based on some available scientific literature and Allah knows better.

    MUSLIMS ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTIONS TO HALAL VITAMINS

    Many Muslims are using non Halal vitamins from stores like Wal-Mart, Walgreen, CVS Pharmacy, GNC. This is because of lack of knowledge about the Halal status of those vitamins. MCG get every day a question from Muslims asking about the Halal status of xyz vitamins. MCG is providing help in picking up the Halal vitamins after it researched at Vitamin Shoppe stores which are located in every city of USA. MCG advises Muslims to check the Halal status of vitamins before consuming them.

    Many major brand of vitamins are not Halal such as: Centrum, Equate, Citracal, Nature Made, Vitafusion, One A Day, GNC, Flintstone, Nature Beauty, Walgreen, Geritol, Nature Bounty, Garliq, Estroven, Disney Gummies, Fiber Smart, Caltrale, Finest Nature, One Source, Lill Critteers, Culturelle, Philps, Ultimate Florea, Viactive, Elatins, Os-Cal, Spring Valley, Schiff, Stevia, Optimum Nutrition, Mega Red, Ocuvite, Alive, Centrum Kid, Active Kid, Spring Valley, Bayer, CVS Vitamins and Kirkland Signature. They are not Halal because they are not Halal or Kosher certified or do not have a Halal or Kosher symbol on the package.

    Even if they do not contain gelatin, they are still not Halal because they add without restriction any Haram hidden ingredient. Halal or Kosher certification protects Muslims from adding Haram Hidden or Processing Aid Ingredients which are not required to be mention under ingredients statement by FDA. MCG has a list of Halal multivitamins, individual vitamins, prenatal vitamins and fish oil or omega 3 on our website under "Vitamins". Please use this list of Halal vitamins. How to search Halal vitamins on our website: Please write vitamins or prenatal vitamins or fish oil (for Omega fish oil) under the search box then click Food Product by Category then click Show Only Halal then click search. You will get a list of 45 Halal vitamins, 3 Halal prenatal vitamins, 6 Halal fish oil (Omega fish oil) and where to buy them.

    Gelatin in any food product or ingredient or Vitamins or medicine is not Halal unless it says Fish Gelatin under ingredients statement in USA and Canada

    MCG is receiving many inquiries about gelatin foods or ingredients or in vitamins whether it is Halal or not.

    The important point is none of the gelatin carrying food products or ingredients or vitamins are Halal unless it says fish gelatin under ingredients statement. The use of fish gelatin in foods in USA is on rise because of demand by Muslim consumers and Jewish consumers. Food companies have booths at IFT Food Expo in July 2013 in Chicago promoting use of fish gelatin. It is important to know the fish gelatin from cat fish is not consider Halal or Kosher. Beta Carotene suppliers use fish gelatin as  a processing aid ingredient or hidden ingredient in Beta Carotene powder form so that it mixes well with other ingredients and fish gelatin is not mentioned under ingredients list.

    Please do not consumed fried fish or fried potatoes if the company or sea food restaurants makes the Beer Battered fried products

    Many food companies and restaurants manufacture or serve beer battered fried fish or potatoes products in USA, Canada and Europe.

    They use same fryers and same vegetable oil to fry both beer battered fish or potatoes and non beer battered fish or potatoes products.

    In seafood restaurants if you see beer battered under menu then please do not order any fried fish such as Red Lobster and other sea food restaurants.

    Similarly frozen fried fish and frozen fried potato brands such as Gorton, Van De Kemps, McCain, Or-Ida make frozen beer battered fried fish and fried potato. So non beer battered frozen are contaminated with beer because beer cannot be removed from frying vegetable oil. The oil is recycled to remove only large and small particles of  products left over in the oil. So all their non beer battered fried are contaminated with beer in the batter.

  • Salam Aleikoum Wa Ramatoulah Wa Barakatouh, Firstly, I would like to thank you for maintaining this website. I am sending you this message concerning the product Aunt Milli's 100% Whole Wheat Bread. I saw that the product was marked as halal. However in parenthesis, there was the mention "in Meijer". I have purchased the product at Kroger in Bloomington, IN. There is no Kosher symbol on the package. The ingredients are: whole grain wheat flour,water, wheat gluten, sugar, yeast, soybean oil, salt, sweet dairy whey, molasses, cultured wheat flour, ethoxylated mono- and diglycerides, vinegar, ascorbic acid, soy lecithin, may be topped with flour. Is Aunt Milli's 100% Whole Wheat Bread halal in that case too? My second question concerns the bread Aunt Milli's 35 calorie Whole Grain Bread. This bread contains natural and artificial flavor in its ingredients list. Is this bread halal? Thanks again for your help. May Allah give you a good day. - Tikyda Couassi-Ble
  • AOA

    In the absence of kosher symbol you have to contact baking company to findout whether whey was kosher certified or not if they yse then it is Halal. Now a days every bakery is using vegetable fat based dough c ondition. So this bread is Halal if whey is kosher. It is possible last time there was no whey they made add to it. I do not think 35 calories is Halal because it may contain falvor.

    MUSLIMS ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTIONS TO HALAL VITAMINS

    Many Muslims are using non Halal vitamins from stores like Wal-Mart, Walgreen, CVS Pharmacy, GNC. This is because of lack of knowledge about the Halal status of those vitamins. MCG get every day a question from Muslims asking about the Halal status of xyz vitamins. MCG is providing help in picking up the Halal vitamins after it researched at Vitamin Shoppe stores which are located in every city of USA. MCG advises Muslims to check the Halal status of vitamins before consuming them.

    Many major brand of vitamins are not Halal such as: Centrum, Equate, Citracal, Nature Made, Vitafusion, One A Day, GNC, Flintstone, Nature Beauty, Walgreen, Geritol, Nature Bounty, Garliq, Estroven, Disney Gummies, Fiber Smart, Caltrale, Finest Nature, One Source, Lill Critteers, Culturelle, Philps, Ultimate Florea, Viactive, Elatins, Os-Cal, Spring Valley, Schiff, Stevia, Optimum Nutrition, Mega Red, Ocuvite, Alive, Centrum Kid, Active Kid, Spring Valley, Bayer, CVS Vitamins and Kirkland Signature. They are not Halal because they are not Halal or Kosher certified or do not have a Halal or Kosher symbol on the package.

    Even if they do not contain gelatin, they are still not Halal because they add without restriction any Haram hidden ingredient. Halal or Kosher certification protects Muslims from adding Haram Hidden or Processing Aid Ingredients which are not required to be mention under ingredients statement by FDA. MCG has a list of Halal multivitamins, individual vitamins, prenatal vitamins and fish oil or omega 3 on our website under "Vitamins". Please use this list of Halal vitamins. How to search Halal vitamins on our website: Please write vitamins or prenatal vitamins or fish oil (for Omega fish oil) under the search box then click Food Product by Category then click Show Only Halal then click search. You will get a list of 45 Halal vitamins, 3 Halal prenatal vitamins, 6 Halal fish oil (Omega fish oil) and where to buy them.

    Gelatin in any food product or ingredient or Vitamins or medicine is not Halal unless it says Fish Gelatin under ingredients statement in USA and Canada

    MCG is receiving many inquiries about gelatin foods or ingredients or in vitamins whether it is Halal or not.

    The important point is none of the gelatin carrying food products or ingredients or vitamins are Halal unless it says fish gelatin under ingredients statement. The use of fish gelatin in foods in USA is on rise because of demand by Muslim consumers and Jewish consumers. Food companies have booths at IFT Food Expo in July 2013 in Chicago promoting use of fish gelatin. It is important to know the fish gelatin from cat fish is not consider Halal or Kosher. Beta Carotene suppliers use fish gelatin as  a processing aid ingredient or hidden ingredient in Beta Carotene powder form so that it mixes well with other ingredients and fish gelatin is not mentioned under ingredients list.

    Narrated Umm Salamah RA, Ummul Muminin RA:

  • Assalaamu alaikum brothers and sisters, My name is Rumeysa, and I have an 8 months old baby. I wanted to buy some finger foods for my baby and found the happy baby brand. Last week, I sent two different emails to happyfamilybrands. They have baby foods. I want to show you my questions and their answers, what do you think, is it enough to buy their products. Thank you so much for all your works. There are my emails and their answers: 1. Question: I have an eight months old baby. I want to buy finger foods to her. I tried to check your products' ingredients. But I am not an expert. I want to learn about animal based ingredient. Could you inform me? Which products of your company has animal based ingredients? And which animal? Thank you so much. Answer: Hi Rumeysa, In terms of our snack foods, only our Happy Yogis have dairy in them from cow's milk. The rest of our snack-food products (Happy Puffs, Happy Creamies, Happy Teethers, and Happy Munchies) do not contain any animal-products. Feel free to write back with any other questions or comments. All the best, Trudy 2. Question: Thank you so much for your answer. I have one more question: Is ethanol or ethyl alcohol used as a solvent in flavor; ethanol or ethyl 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 ethanol or ethyl 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 ethanol or ethyl alcohol was used or not in the flavor as a solvent. Thank you... Answer: Hi there, All of our natural flavors are fruit or veggie-based, they do not use alcohol solvents. All the best, Natalya Watson, MPH, Marketing Manager - Rumeysa

    All Happy Family Baby products are organic  and are not kosher certified so we do not know what hidden or processing aid ingredients they use. If they gurantee no Haram ingredients they use then you can use those without dairy but I do not think they guarntee it. Please look kosher certified baby foods on our website. I like the way you wrote them the e-mails and i hope every mother should use it.

    There are 55 Halal baby food products on our website and more are coming soon.

    They are all NOT Halal and may be HARAM if gelatin is from pork. Some Rabbis consider gelatin from pork is kosher and they assign K kosher symbol. You have to use yogurts with OUD kosher symbol without flavor because flavosr in yogurts are made with alcohol.
