  • I accidentally ate Bacon cheddar potato chips just after looking at the U sign on the packet. Later i realized and regret thinking I had pig bacon. Can you please explain it its haram ? I do not find bacon content in the ingredients but its bacon cheddar on the packet. - Masihuddin
  • AOA

    Orthodox Kosher OU symbol carrying products will not have Haram pork but they can kosher certify a Bacon Cheddar Potato chip made of artificial bacon flavor by use of chemicals. There is no bacon in it. Although there is no bacon in it but I do not advise to consume it unless it says beef bacon cheddar potato chips. Since bacon can be made from pork and beef. But if it is made from beef it has to say beef bacon. If it says bacon it means pork. So please do not use it there is yeast extract in it then it mostly comes from brewer yeast which is by product of beer making. Muslims should stay away from bacon even it is made with chemical only because bacon is not Muslim product. Bacon comes from artificial flavor.

There is no Flavoring in the lollipops and they're Kosher certified. So are they considered halal?! - Anonymous user

    There is no ingredients on their website but as you wrote the ingredients of coffee and chocolate lollipos then it is Halal. After I aget the ingredients from See Candy then I examined the vanilla one if they meet Halal requirements then Inshallah I will publish it on our website.

    From our Alert section:

    TITLE: 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.

    Halal Vanillin is used as Artificial Flavor in Mars Products

     

     HALAL VANILLIN IS USED AS A ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR IN ALL MARS SNACK PRODUCTS

    Halal vanillin without Alcohol is used as artificial flavor in all Mars snack products. This information was provided by a Muslim Consumer from New Jersey. Then MCG called the Mars to verify the statement. Mars told MCG that only vanillin is used as artificial flavor in their product. MCG asked about the natural flavor then Mars informed us that natural vanilla flavor is used as natural flavor. The reference number for MCG call was 011388761A.

    Natural vanilla flavor is obtained from vanilla beans by using alcohol and water as extracting solvents, so MCG do not consider this natural vanilla flavor as Halal.

  • First of all jazakallah khair for your efforts. I searched for "similar iron fortified" 0+ months halal or not. I could not find this either under infant formula or under FAQ. Can you please clarify. Jazakallah khairan. - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Infant formula is only contain baby milk products not vitamins. In some Halal infant formula Iron is also included. You have to go to grocery store find the Halal infant formula then please look at nutrition fact and find out whether iron was part of enrichment and how much iron supplied per serving how many percent of Iron recommended daily allownce. If the baby doctor ask you feed iron then use this:

    MyKidz Iron
    Iron 10 for Infants and Toddlers Liquid Alcohol Free
    although it says "Contains no alcohol or dyes and is gluten and lactose free" please call 1-800-645-1899 to find out whether alcohol was used as hidden ingredient in Strawberry Banana Flavor. This product can be obtained from www.koshervitamins.com

And it has UD and USDA Organic signs . Is this yogurt halal? JazakAllah khair . - Sariya
  • AOA

    UD kosher symbol or USDA sign does not mean Halal. Since it contains flavor so alcohol may be used.

    NOT ALL KOSHER CERTIFIED NON MEAT FOOD PRODUCTS ARE HALAL, ONLY THOSE WHO MEET HALAL REQUIREMENTS ARE HALAL

    The Kosher Certified food products are not considered Halal if they contain one of the following ingredient (based on MCG Halal Standard): (1) Gelatin (2) Kosher Gelatin (3) L-Cysteine made from human hair or chicken or duck feathers (4) Wine (5) Liquor (6) Beer batter (7) Rum flavor (8) Ethyl Alcohol or ethanol as a main ingredient (9) Cochineal or Carmine (10) Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce (11) Brewer’s Yeast Extract from byproduct of beer making  (12) Nucleotides (13) Vanilla Extract (14) Wine Vinegar (15) If ethyl alcohol is used as a solvent in natural and artificial flavors (16) Confectionary Glaze or Resinous Glaze (17) Torula Yeast grown on alcohol (18) if Carrageenan is made with ethyl alcohol, (19) Natural Vanilla or Natural Vanilla Flavor(because Alcohol is used in its extraction).
