    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 Kirkland Signature and Herballife. They are not Halal because they are not Kosher certified or do not have a Kosher symbol on the package (if Kosher certification meets the Halal requirements because not every Kosher certified food product is Halal).

    Even if they do not contain gelatin, they are still not Halal because they add without restriction any Haram hidden ingredient as hidden ingredient. 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.

  • Assalam o alaikum My doctor recommended me 'centrum with Lutein' In KSA. I read on ur website centrum products are not halal. Even they have quoted it on their website that it contain bovine and porcine sources. And pig gelatin. They say it's not suitable for vegetarian , not halal and not kosher But they say it's only for u.k For middle East they have special formulation that's 100℅ halal. Let me quote it from their site. Several of the vitamins used in the Centrum formulations do contain gelatin, which is derived from Bovine (Cattle) or Porcine (Pigs) sources. Centrum multivitamins marketed in Europe contain vitamins derived from pig gelatine (pigs are not Halal). Please note that Centrum multivitamins marketed in the Middle East are specifically formulated to be 100% porcine free, in line with local Middle East Board of Health requirements. Please let me know if I can consume it. Regards - Wish
  • AOA

    If it is from Non Zabiha Bovine then MCG do not consider as Halal. Please find Halal alternate or get from USA. It is not a medicine you can get similar vitamins from fruits and vegetables. It must not contain any animal dervied ingredients to be Centrum to be Halal in KSA.

  • i used glycerine in my body, does glycerine halal? - md.ashraful bari
  • AOA

    From our FAQ:

     

    Glycerin:

    Glycerin is a fat based ingredients used in foods and non food products. Since it is a fat based ingredient so it is either obtained from animal fat such as pork or beef or it is obtained from vegetable fat. Only vegetable fat based Glycerin is Halal or it is Halal if there is a Kosher symbol on the food package containing glycerin which means glycerin the food is obtained from vegetable fat.

    The Question about Alcohol in any Flavor or perfume

    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 perfume; ethanol or ethyl alcohol is a hidden ingredient or processing aid ingredient of a perfume, it will not appear in the ingredients statement. The knowledge of presence or absence of ethanol or ethyl alcohol in perfume is only known to your QA or Technical service department because they have access to the specification of perfume. In the specification of perfume, your perfume supplier has written  the name of solvent or carrier used in that particular perfume. So please request your QA or Technical service department to find out whether ethanol or ethyl alcohol was used or not in the perfume as a solvent".
