    The oatmeal cookies is Halal only if no alcohol is used in artificial flavor. Please write to the company this way:

    " 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".

    Rest are Halal.

  • Assalaamualaikum.I have two questions----1) I came to know through your website that Britannia products in India are Halal. But I didn't understand why? They also use flavors in their products. 2) I attended many birthday parties of my Muslim friends in my life. And one day when I requested my friend not to buy a cake containing flavor, he replied me that he had ordered that cake from a Muslim bakery. However I abstained from eating that cake, I just wanted to know whether we can have the cakes,pastries and other bakery items made by Muslims----Jazak Allahu khairan - Syed Muteeb
  • AOA

    The reason they are Halal because of their e-mail. It does not necessary all flavor are Haram. Some people avoid otherwise they have to contact the manufacturer to ask whether alcohol was used or not. There are some food manufacturer who does not want to mentioned Vanillin because many consumer does not know about it so instead they mentioned artificial flavor and it does not have alcohol. If Muslim Bakery owner is educated then he will not ask for no alcohol in flavor, it is possible he does not know the alcohol is a hidden ingredient in flavor. But if he uneducated then he will feed Muslims with alcohol containing flavor in baked products. Indian or USA flavor companies do use alcohol in flavor for Indian food.products. But USA flavor companies do not send alcohol containing flavors to Muslim countries and India is not a Muslim country.

    The only you find out is to contact owner of the Muslim bakery otherwise they there is no way unless you have to spend money send bakery products to a testing lab for alcohol content.

    All Indian made Britannia products Biscuits Britannia

    From: LALITHA@BRITINDIA.COM Sent: Wed 3/07/12 12:12 AM To: S.Rasheed Ahmed (halalfoods@hotmail.com) Always show content from LALITHA@BRITINDIA.COM Dear Sir, In the year 2010, around this time you had asked this query and after verifying with our major flavour suppliers (we buy flavours from Internationally reputed flavour houses like Givaudan, IFF) I had replied that there is no ethyl alcohol in the flavours that we use. Am attaching the mail I had sent to you on 2nd April 2010 for your kind reference. All the ingredients and additives used in Britannia Biscuits are of vegetarian origin only and do not contain any ethyl alcohol in them. In India, these product packs contain green logo in front panel. For export packs, since it is not mandatory in the countries, we do not put green logo. Moreover, we do not use any lubricant on the oven band for release of biscuits. Thanking you, Yours truly, Lalitha

  • what do doritos contain that make it haram? - Mariyum
  • AOA

    From our ALERT:

    Alert TitleDescriptionDate
    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.

  • AOA

    If alcohol is used in flavor as a hidden ingredient then it is not Halal. Only manufacture3r knows about. Please write this way:

    The Question about Alcohol in any Flavor

    The question about alcohol in flavor is a tricky one because it is a hidden ingredient of the flavor. If you ask alcohol question to non technical consumer department person of a food company, first they look at the ingredients list of the food product and will find no alcohol is mentioned. Then they will say we do not use alcohol in our products because they do not know the alcohol is a hidden ingredient of the flavor. We request Muslim consumers to use the following phrase when asking or writing the question to consumer department of any food company regarding the presence or absence of alcohol in the flavor of a food product.

    " 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".

  • assalamoalaikum is the kosher gelatin halal if ithis is in the ingredients of yogurts. - huma
  • AOA

    It is not Halal. From our FAQ:

    Is Kosher Gelatin Halal:

    Kosher gelatin is not Halal because it is made either from pork or non zabiha beef and therefore kosher gelatin from pork is Haram. Kosher gelatin is also obtained from kosher certified beef but it is not Halal because the Sachet a Rabbi who slaughter animals pronounce Allah's name on the first animal and last and no in between. Some liberal Rabbis is also consider pig gelatin as kosher with  kosher symbol K appears on yogurts containing kosher gelatin and Jell-O Gelatin because they think the original pig collagen changed during gelatin processing.

    I had written earlier that Walmart's "Heavy Whipping Cream", made by Bryne Dairy does not have a kosher symbol on it. That is what the representative at Bryne Dairy told me after looking at a picture of the product on her computer. But today I went to Walmart to check and the Heavy Whipping Cream with the plant# 36-8580 does have a kosher symbol on it.

    I used to work on Nabisco Oreo Brownies and used to know the Oreo formula. All Oreo cookies are kosher certified and has kosher symbol it means that no hidden pork ingredients can be used. The Oreo cookies with Vanillin are Halal. Oreo cookies with Natural and Artificial flavor are not Halal.

    Maggi noodles with green dot or with vegetarian label on the package of products. Maggi noodles are consider Not Halal if there is no Green Dot on the package of noodles. Even if it has green dot it will be not be Halal if it contains E-Number 635, other Haram or Mashbooh E-Numbers and alcohol in flavor.

  • Assalam-o-Alaikum!i want to share that i recently bought a trident wild blueberry twist from a super store.at a cousins house i was chewing it when my cousin told me it contains alcohol.i spat it out and checked the ingredients and surely it was written sugar alcohol-1 g. I was shocked so i researched on Google about it and found that sugar alcohol is not alcohol and is a sweetener but i found that trident contains gelatin which i already know is haram. I don't think that all trident flavors have this because on my gum in the ingredients they haven't written gelatin.so I am really confused whether i should continue eating this gum or not.and if its haram can u tell me which flavor of trident which is not haram because i like this gum very much. Wassalam! - Eeman Afzal
  • AOA

    All sugar alcohol are Halal except one or two. By the way Tridient gums are not Halal.

    Sugar Alcohols

     

    Sugar Alcohols

    Sugar alcohols or Polyols are carbohydrates. Many Muslim consumers has asked us about Halal status of sugar alcohols in Questions and Answers section of our website. We answered them in the above section. So we decided to explain about them in News section of our website. The sugar alcohols are made from plant carbohydrates except Lactitol which can be made from sucrose or whey's lactose or milk sugar  and all the sugar alcohols are Halal  except Erythritol and if Lactittol  is made from non Halal whey then it is not Halal. But if Lactitol is made from sucrose then it is Halal. There is no ethyl alcohol present in them. Alcohol is just the name because of chemical formulas. FDA recognized sugar alcohols as GRAS(Generally Recognized As Safe). Sugar alcohols are not artificial sweeteners technically and slightly lower in calories compare to sugar. The most important use of them is in chewing gums, sugar free candiaes and cookies because they do not cause tooth decay and good for diabetes because on consuming them the blood sugar will not increase. The most important sugar alcohols are Sorbitol or Glucitol, Xylitol, Lactitol, Mannitol, Maltitol, Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysates, Isomalt, . No bone char is used in sugar alcohols as compare to sugar. Sugar alcohols are slow fermented carbohydrate than sugar. Sugar alcohols are not fermented by oral bacteria in mouth, this is determind by FDA through McNail company’s research. Sorbitol, Mannitol, Maltitol and Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysates are manufactured from cornstarch. Xylitol is manufactured from corn cobs, sugar cane bagasse, birch wood waste.

    Lactitol is made from sucrose and whey. When Lactitol is manufactured from sweet whey then we have to be very careful about it. Whey has to be Halal or kosher certified otherwise Lactitol will not be Halal if it is manufactured from sweet whey which is obtained from animal rennet whey. Even if it is obtained from acid whey the starter culture bacteria and starter culture media upon the bacteria grow has to be Halal. If a Halal or kosher symbol appears on a food product package containing Lactitol, it means lactitol is either made from sucrose or Halal or kosher certified whey.

    Erythritol is obtined either cornstarch or fruits through alcoholic fermentation because there is no lactic acid ferementation to be Halal. Sugar alcohol Erythritol is not consider Halal.

    Lactitol is considered as Mushbooh and depond upon the Halal or kosher status of rennet whey and acid whey.

  • Does yellow 5 lake have any animal products in it? Also yellow 6 lake? - Gerard
  • AOA

    From our FAQ:

    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.

  • Kosher galetin halal or haram - Ali
  • AOA

    From our FAQ:

    Is Kosher Gelatin Halal:

    Kosher gelatin is not Halal because it is made either from pork or non zabiha beef and therefore kosher gelatin from pork is Haram. Kosher gelatin is also obtained from kosher certified beef but it is not Halal because the Sachet a Rabbi who slaughter animals pronounce Allah's name on the first animal and last and no in between. Some liberal Rabbis is also consider pig gelatin as kosher with  kosher symbol K appears on yogurts containing kosher gelatin and Jell-O Gelatin because they think the original pig collagen changed during gelatin processing.
