    Alert Title Description Date
    Giordano Cheese Pizza is Mushbooh

    MCG tried very hard to get the technical information from Giordano Pizza Company without any success because there is no technical person works for this pizza company and they always refer to store manager who have no knowledge. He only says the their ingredients are natural and will not allow inside to look at ingredients cases.

    So MCG advises Chicago area Muslims not to consume Giordano Cheese Pizza.

    Cinnabon Products

    All Cinnabon products except Danish Stick are not Halal in USA because due to the  presence of vanilla extract in frosting. Vanilla extract contains 35% alcohol. The only item which do not contain frosting is Danish Sticks according Cinnabon. Danish Stick is made with natural and artificial flavor but the information about alcohol use as a solvent is not known. So Danish Stick is Mushbooh product. Although all ingredients used in Cinnabon products are kosher certified.

  • Need to know if balsamic vinegar is halal - Mohamed Laraki
  • AOA

    It is not Halal.

    haram Balsamic Vinegar Grain & plant based ingredients True balsamic vinegar comes from Modena, Italy. Balsamic Vinegar is made from Trebbiano grape which is a sweet white grape which contains high sugar. Some products named balsamic vinegar are really dilutions containing ordinary red-wine vinegar. The grape cooked at about 185 F to obtain concentrated grape juice then cooled in wooden barrels, inoculated with fermentation culture which include transferring the grape juice to alcohol then to acetic acid and water then they aged for years. Other vinegars are not aged. Since it has higher sugar content the it will produce more alcohol which may not be converted to acetic acid and water. It is also possible they may use wine barrel to provide flavor. It is not made from wine but it is consider as a wine vinegar. Some company may add wine vinegar to get the right flavor. So we do not what happen during the production of Balsamic vinegar. MCG do not consider wine vinegar and Balsamic vinegar as Halal.

  • AOA, I wanted to know if you have any information on the Doritos sweet spicy chilli chips? Frito lays said that's the only chips that does contain any cheese, therefore no animal products or byproducts are used. Also any information chesters puffcorns? There are three flavors in them and all of them carry a UD symbol. I really aappreciate what you do. Jazakllah - Hasan
  • AOA

    From our Alert Section:

    Why Cheetos and Doritos (except Doritos Toasted Corn Tortilla Chips) are not Halal

    There is no kosher symbol on the package of Cheetos and Doritos. This makes them Non Halal because they can add any Haram Hidden or Processing aid ingredients without mentioning under the ingredients statement. Cheese used in Cheetos and Doritos are not Kosher certified and not Halal. Sine these products are not under Halal or Kosher certification then Frito Lay can use non kosher certified flavors or colors. There is no restriction for Frito Lay to make Cheetos or Doritos on their own lines or on co-packers line where pork containing products are made. This exposes a great possibility of cross contamination of pork containing ingredients. All these snacks are very attractive to adults and children but there is a Hadith which says that Allah will not accept your dua for 40 days if a Muslim eats intentionally a bit of Haram food. So MCG recommend Muslims not consume above snacks.

  • Assalamualaikum, I would like to know if fish sauce is halal and I've found the following information on the most popular brand: Squid Brand Fish Sauce: Fish sauce (nam pla) Squid Brand fish sauce is authentic Thai fish sauce, made from fresh anchovies and salt, naturally fermented for 18 months to achieve high quality fish sauce, rich with natural protein, giving it a fragrant aroma and a clear, reddish brown color. With its robust flavor, Squid Brand fish sauce is ideal not only for stir-frying, marinating, but also for dipping. More info for detailed manufacturing process: http://squidbrand.com/english/process/ Ingredients : Water, anchovy extract, salt, sugar. - Fish Sauce
  • AOA

    If it is made with only water, anchovies, salt and did not produce alcohol during fermentation then it is Halal. It is most probably will not have alcohol because it looks likes Indian pickle where salt is used as preservative to stop the growth of micro organism. If it does not smell alcohol then it is Halal.
