  • That he mentions the name of someone or something other than Allah upon it as he is slaughtering, such as the Messiah or otherwise. Likewise there is no doubt that the meat in this case is haraam, since it is among what has been dedicated to other than Allah, which is specifically forbidden. That he does not slaughter it by the way specified by shari'ah as is the case if he chokes it or electrocutes it until it dies or drowns it in water until it dies or kills it by a bullet, etc. In this case there is no doubt that eating it is forbidden since it is maita (meat of an animal that has died without properly being slaughtered) and Allah has forbidden it. (Both of this could be proven by Ayat in the Qur'an (also not to eat animals not slaughted in the Name of Allah) That he slaughters it via the known way specified by shari'ah and he speaks the name of Allah upon it. In this case there is no problem in the permissibility of eating it. [This includes the people of the book and i can give an ayah with it .]as for if you dont know if the name of Allah has been mentioned then im not sure if there is two opinions one being you coukd eat it and there is a hadith is sahih al bukhari May Allah guide us keep us firm and we must reject the Tawagheet something we should know about the people of the book - Jameelah
  • AOA

    MCG do not consider current method slaughtering by People of Book as Halal. Sachet the only Rabbi who slaughter the kosher animal do not pronounce the name of All on all animal except first and last. At Christian slaughter a non believer can slaughter the animal.

  • Salam alaykum, I emailed a costco regarding their Kirkland signature sweet cream unsalted butter and asked about the natural flavoring listed on its ingredients list, and this was their response..... We appreciate you taking the time to email Costco Wholesale. The Natural Flavoring is a combination of Lactic Acid and Distilled Butter Milk. This Natural Flavoring ingredient is sometimes referred to as a Starter Distillate. The Natural Flavoring ingredient improves the flavor of Unsalted Butter and helps unsalted butter to maintain its shelf life and keeping quality. There is no corn or corn by-products. Thank you, Stacy A. Member Service Center Costco Wholesale Corporation The butter is UD certified, So based on their reply, is this butter considered halal to consume? Jazzak Allah kheir - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    It is not Halal because of presence of Starter Distilate. Lactic Acid is Halal.

    Diacetyl in Starter Distillate

     

    Diacetyl in Starter Distillate used as Natural Flavoring in Unsalted Butter

    According to a internet report: " Popcorn lung, or bronchiolitis obliterans, results from exposure to Diacetyl, the chemical used in butter flavoring in microwave popcorn and other food products. People affected by the toxicity of this chemical have developed shortness of breath, hardening of the lung tissue, and other serious respiratory symptoms.

    Butter manufacturer such as Land O Lakes is already replacing the starter distillate with Lactic Acid which is a Halal ingredient. But Land O Lakes Company is still using the word "Natural Flvoring to represent Lactic Acid and this was told by the company to MCG. Other butter manufactur such as Wild Harvest who makes Organic Unsalted butter reports Cream and Lactic Acid under ingredients statement. Many butter producer will follow.

    Our advice is to use Salted Butter and Unslated Butter if the ingredients are Cream and Lactic Acid or Cream and Natural Flavoring. If it says Natural flavoring then contact the company to ask whether they are using Starter Distillate or Lactic Acid as Natural Flavoring.

    Natural flavoring is still Starter Distillate in many unsalted butter brands and it contains Diacetyl. As we reported in our Ingredients section about Starter Distillate as "Besides diacetyl, starter distillate contains minor amounts of acetaldehyde, ethyl formate, ethyl acetate, acetone, ethyl alcohol, 2-butanone, acetic acid and acetoin.

  • Assalam o Alaikum, I read in your News section about Kit Kat chocolate bars, that they are not Halal in Canada, but only in U.S. The reason that is mentioned in there is that its not Kosher Certified. However, the U.S. one is made with Halal Vanillin. My question is that Kit Kat did not use to contain Whey in the past. But, since the last few years, Nestle has started using Whey in Kit Kat bars. Since then, I have stopped eating Kit Kat,So, is that Whey from a plant source or animal source? Also, is Vanillin a hidden ingredient in Kit Kat, because I don't see it mentioned in the ingredients' list? Any views/suggestions are welcomed. JazakALLAAH, Waqas. - Waqas
  • AOA

    Kit Kat made in Canada by Nestle is not Halal. The Kid Kat made by Hershey in USA is Halal with Halal whey. WHey will not be Halal without kosher symbol on the package.

Initially Potassium Hydroxide is used to break down the cell wall of the seaweed, easing in the removal of the cellulose. During the refining process, carrageenan is precipitated either using isopropanol (aka isopropyl alcohol) or by potassium chloride. Most of the carrageenan used by our supplier is obtained via the isopropanol method, but they cannot exclude the possibility that potassium chloride may be used. Ethanol is not used in the process.

  • Is a mono diglyceride in Ice cream Halal - Aljerme
  • AOA

    From our FAQ:

    What is Mono and Diglycerides:

    Mono and Diglycerides are fat based emulsifier and are made by reacting glycerol (fat based) with fats and oils. Mono and diglycerides can be made from beef, pork, or soybean fat. Only soybean or zabiha slaughtered cow fat based Mono and Diglyceries are Halal. A Halal or Kosher symbol (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements) on a food package containing Mono and Diglycerides indicates that it is obtained from soybean fat. In the absence of Halal or Kosher symbol on the package Muslim consumers should contact the manufacturer to find out the source of Mono & Diglycerides
