  • is yellow 5 halal or haram ? - Nazrul Islam Chowdhury
  • AOA

    From our FAQ (Please always check our FAQ and Ingredients section so that I do not have to answer your question):

    FD&C yellow No. 5 or FD&C red No. 40 colors

    FD&C yellow No. 5 or FD&C red No. 40 are chemical dyes or lakes and they are Halal if used in pure granular or powder form but if the FD&C colors are required to make it in liquid form then a solvent is needed to make FD&C colors in liquid form. Liquid FD&C colors are used in liquid foods such as soft drinks. Vegetable oil or glycerin is used to make liquid artificial colors. Liquid FD&C colors are Halal only if vegetable oil or soy fat based glycerin is used. If glycerin is obtained from pork fat then liquid FD&+C colors will be Haram. A Halal or Kosher symbol (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements) appears on a food package containing these colors indicates that no pork or beef fat glycerin was used as a solvent.

    It is the pectin in the jam and jelly. If alcohol is used during the pectin manufacture to crystalized the pectin then it is not Halal. Smuckers is refused the give the information so their products are mashbooh.

    Thank you for your inquiry concerning our Shop Rite Strawberry Jelly.  Our supplier has confirmed ethanol and/or isopropyl alcohol is used in the processing of the pectin.
     
    We value your comments and I have shared them with my Private Brand team.

    Thanks again for your feedback.

    Have a great day!

     

    Dear Mr. Ahmed,
     
    The full line of Bonne Maman Preserves and Jellies is kosher certified by the Orthodox Union (except for the Muscat Grape Jelly).  No alcohol is involved in the recipe. 
     
    I hope I have answered your question and that you can enjoy Bonne Maman without concern.
     
    Enjoy.

  • Salaam alaikum, Response from Blue Diamond regarding their Almond milk: Case ID# 163799 Response from Blue Diamond Dear , The carrageenan used in Blue Diamond Almond Breeze is sourced in the US. The carrageenan used in our Almond Breeze formulations is an 'undegraded Chondras extract'. We thank you for taking the time to reach out to us! And as always - Thank You for Choosing Blue Diamond! Sincerely, Pam Schiller Assistant Consumer Advocate BLUE DIAMOND GROWERS (800) 987-2329; toll free e-mail: customerservice@bdgrowers.com Would this Almond milk be halal to consume? Jazakallah - muslimah
  • AOA

    They have no knolwdge that ethyl alcohol or isopropyl alcohol or potacium chloride is used during processing of Carrageenan. Carrageenan is not made in USA. It is made in far east countries or Europe. Blue Diamond Growers do not manufacture the Carrageenan they buy from supplier. Chondrus crispus is a red algae grown in rocky atlantic. The carrageenan is extracted by water but in order to crystalized by using one of above ingredient. So there is no real answer for it so it is a mashbooh product.

  • Assalamualaikum. I just recently came across this list on the Frito Lay website that gives names of their snacks which do not contain pork enzymes. http://www.fritolay.com/nutrition/special-dietary-needs/us-products-made-without-pork-(porcine)-enzymes.htm This list was updated only last week, and it contains Cheetos as well as the Fritos Chili Cheese flavored corn chips, which we have avoided since learning there could be haram ingredients in them. My question is, is it possible that the ingredients have recently been modified so that there are no haram ingredients left in them? I'm not sure if there were other haram ingredients in these snacks besides porcine enzymes, so I'm unable to decide on my own. Jazak Allah Khair - Sadaf Alam
  • AOA

    It does not mean nothing. They do not know Halal criteria. I have research on their products and made list of hlal or not Halal products from Frito Lay company and published on our website under Potato Chips or Snacks category.

  • Asalaamualaikum, I wanted to know if the Creamy Swiss Original cheese by the Laughing Cow halal? The ingredients are: Ingredients: [cheddar, Swiss, and semisoft cheese (pasteurized cultured milk, salt, enzymes)], whey, ultra-filtered nonfat milk, water, anhydrous milk fat, sodium phosphate and sodium polyphosphate, sodium citrate, citric acid, salt. It is not kosher certified but their FAQ reveals they do not use animal rennet and that it is suitable for a vegetarian diet. If not, can you suggest similar alternate halal products, if possible? I have seen some similar cheese by regal picon at Arab stores. JazakAllah Khayr for your help! - Asim Mohiuddin
  • AOA

    If it does not have kosher symbol on the package then it is not Halal.

    CHEESES AND ITS HALAL STATUS:

    The following things have to be Halal in order for a cheese to be considered Halal: 1. Ingredients used to make the Mother Starter Culture growth Media ((if whey used, it has to be made from non animal rennet, Lactose is also from non animal rennet, yeast extract has to be from baker’s yeast, starter culture growth media has to be kosher certified). 2. Ingredients used to make the Bulk Starter Culture growth Media ((if whey used, it has to be made from non animal rennet, Lactose is also from non animal rennet, yeast extract has to be from baker’s yeast, bulk starter culture media has to be kosher certified). 3. Starter Bacterial culture are Halal if they obtained from milk source and not from meat source, usually in practice they obtained from milk. 4. Milk Coagulating Enzyme, such as Microbial rennet used to coagulate milk or Rennet obtained from Zabiha slaughtered calves (not available in USA and Canada) and has to be kosher certified 5. Fat Hydrolyzing Enzyme, such as Microbial Lipases has to be kosher certified 6. Dairy ingredients such as Non Fat dry milk solid or cream or dry milk or whey protein concentrate if added has to be kosher certified 7. Artificial color such as artificial blue or green color is added to neutralize natural yellow color in curd for Asiago or Blue cheese has to be kosher certified 8. Media to grow mold Penicillium roquefortti providing blue color in blue cheese has to kosher certified 9. Harmless plant based enzyme is if added for curing or flavor development and growth media for biological curing agent used on the surface of Brick cheese has to be kosher certified 10. Flavoring, hydrolyzed lactose, whey for cold packed cheese food is allowed in cream cheese but most manufacturer use gums. 11. Cheese must be Kosher certified and the kosher certification must meet the Halal requirements with exception cheese used on pizza, in that case cheese does not have to be kosher certified but if they used kosher certified starter culture bacteria, media and enzyme then meet above requirements then it is consider Halal. Cheese if Halal certified by other Halal certifying organizations must meet above criteria and if above criteria used for Halal certification then it must display on their websites otherwise MCG will not consider their Halal certified cheese as Halal.

All the ingredients used in Twix are made in USA. Twix has a kosher symbol, Mars will the Rabbi to go to Netherland where there is no Kosher certification." Assalamu alaykum. Sorry, I misunderstood them. Not all ingredients, but some of the products made in Nederland have been certified Halal. Mars Korea is saying that Mars Nederland exports us those Halal certified products. Here the link you can see Halal Certificate of Mars Nederland: https://www.dropbox.com/s/iez72gg63hzsbcn/Halal%20exp.%201-4-2015.pdf?dl=0 This above is just for information. But, I am asking my following question 3rd time now. Please answer: How some of the ingredients of Twix are investigated and given Halal label? Such as whey powder, Natural flavor(vanilla) and lactose. Especially, Natural flavor(vanilla), because it is mostly extracted using alcohol. Regards. - Abdulwaliy

    I do not think the Mars has a plant in South Africa. Here food manufacturing companies in South Korea:

    I am a Certified food scientist with 35 years of US food industry experience. I used to ask the purchasing department of my companies to buy the so and so ingredients from so and so food ingredients companies.

    What is name of the country written on Twix bars. Does they have any Halal or kosher symbol or suitable for vegetarian written if not the Twix bars are not Halal in South Korea.

    First of artificial flavoer is not allwed to used in either salted or unsalted butter. I think you confused with Margarine or Oil spreads.

  • AOAPlease trust those Halal website who decide Halal status based on ingredients list and communication with food compaies. Skittle is not Halal because it does not have Halal or kosher symbol on the package. Lack of Halal or kosher symbol may end up musing Haram Hidden ingredients by food companies. FDA has given the right to them to hide hidden processing aid or hidden ingredients in any food and they are also given permission not mentioned under ingredients list. The Halal Hub say there is no alcohol in the coke based on Cocoa Cola company statement wich they are given for last 30 years. Did Halal Hub send the coke to outside lab to detect alcohol. We did after spending $1250 our own money and falcohol was detected in Coke and 7 Up but not in Pepsi.There are Halal website which do not have proper food science education and experience in food plants but still want to educate Muslims in a wrong way.

    Only Spirit vinegra is Halal in UK. Apple cider Vinegar is made from fermented apple juice in UK but in USA it is made from unfermented juice which Halal onlu in USA. Red wine or white wine is not Halal because not 100% wine converted to acetic acid and water some left over wine present in it. The other sonstiteunt of wine will not change so it remained unchanged only alcohol is subjected to change but it is not 100% conversion.

    They are Haram. From our Alert section:

    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.
