  • AOA

    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.

    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.

    Advil Liquid gel products may be Haram because all of them are made with gelatin which could be from pork.

    Vitamins: What make them Haram or Non Halal

    The following factors make Vitamins as Haram or Non Halal:

    1. Gelatin:

    Gelatin listed under ingredients statement or part of the capsule makes vitamins

    as Haram if gelatin was obtained from pork or Non Halal if it was obtained from non zabiha beef.

    Only Fish gelatin is Halal and it should be mentioned under ingredients statement.

    The capsules must be made with cellulose to be consider Halal.

    2. Magnesium Stearate:

    Magnesium Stearate is helps in flowing the other ingredients and is a fat based emulsifier and it could be obtained either from pork fat or vegetable fat. Only vegetable fat Magnesium Stearate is consider Halal.

    3. Hidden Ingredients or Processing Aid Ingredients:

    Every vitamin is made with Hidden Ingredients or Processing Aid Ingredients because FDA allows manufacturer to add a maximum of 2% of formula as Hidden Ingredients or Processing Aid Ingredients. FDA also allows manufacturer not to mentioned under the ingredients statement. The hidden or processing aid ingredients must be from Halal sources.

    Halal or Kosher symbol on the vitamins package protects Muslims from added Haram Hidden Ingredients or Processing Aid Ingredients.

    4. Coating on Vitamins:

    Pharmaceutical glaze, vegetable beet glaze, Shellac, Lac Resin are used to coat the vitamin tablets to protect them from breaking. All glazes are made by dissolving insect secretion Shellac in alcohol and applying the glaze on the tablets. So please do not buy the vitamins with coating.

    5. Extracts:

    Many source of vitamins are also obtained from plant extracts such as Bioperine (black pepper fruit extract), Tomato Extract (lycopene), Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract and Panax Ginseng Root Extract. They become Non Halal if alcohol was used as a solvent. It is better to avoid those vitamins with extract otherwise you have to call the manufacturer to find out whether alcohol was used as a solvent or not. Most of the time alcohol is used for extraction from plants.

    6. Natural Flavor:

    Alcohol might be used as a solvent in natural flavor so it is better to avoid consuming vitamins with natural flavors. Majority of natural flavors are made with vanilla. If vanilla is used as a natural flavor then the natural flavor will not be Halal.

    7. Chewable Vitamins:

    All chewable vitamins specially for kids are made with natural flavor. You have to contact the manufacturer whether alcohol was used as a solvent or not.

    8. Ingredients where alcohol was used during its processing and they are added to vitamins:

    Alcohol is used during the manufacturing of some ingredients such as Stevia which is a natural sweetener called Steviol Glycol. It is extracted from Stevia plant by water but crystallized it by use of ethyl alcohol.

    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.

  • AOA

    What are Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Butyl Alcohol, Lauryl and Oleyl Alcohol used in Personal Care Products. Are they Halal:

    All above alcohol are not Ethyl Alcohol but they are fatty alcohol or fatty waxes made from either animal fat such as pork fat or vegetable fat such as soy fat. Only manufacturer will know the source of these ingredients. If any personal care company says that no animal derived ingredients are used in their products containing above alcohols it means they are obtained from vegetable fat.

    Ulema allow denatured alcohol to b euse in personal care products. Linolin is obtained from sheep wool without slaughtering and it is Halal.

    Garcinia Cambogia Extract in Weight Loss Medicines

    Garcinia Cambogia Extract is obtained through water extraction of fruits of Garcinia Cambogia which is grown in India. This extract has hydroxycitric acid (HCA) which prohibits the activities of enzyme Citrate lyase.

    Citrate lyase enzyme in our body convert extra carbohydrates into fat. Even if you do not eat fat  in the diet and consumed lot carbohydrates then Citrate lyase enzyme converts extra carbohydrates into fat so your lipid level in the blood will go up.

    This is the reason this Hydroxycitric acid from Garcinia Cambogia Extract is used in weight loss medicines.

    100% Garcinia Cambogia Extract is a Halal extract because water is used to extract it from fruits of the tree but in capsule or in tablet form it may be not available as 100%.

    Garcinia Cambogia Extract is reported as toxic in the medical literature. Garcinia cambogia extract is available in capsules too which may be made from pork gelatin.

    The active ingredient in Garcinia cambogia extract is Hydroxycitric acid but the capsules or tablets may also contain inactive ingredients which may not be Halal.

  • AOA

    Rexona contains perfume where alcohol is hidden ingredient. You have to contact the manufacturer about presence or absence of alcohol in perfume because they are only one who know it. Bht is not listed in both products.

    unknown BHA or BHT Mineral, Chemical, Synthetic based Ingredients A chemical preservative but always avaialble with fat based carrier. Halal if vegetable oil is used as a carrier. Not Halal if animal fat is used as a carrier. A Halal or Kosher symbol on the food package containing BHA or BHT indicate only vegetableoil is used as a carrier.

    In order to use Dove the company has to claimed No Animal Derived ingredients are used in their products.

    How could a Muslim practicing doctor prescribed a vitamin D2 containg gelatin which could be from pork. Muslims doctors make lot money but they do not care about Halal status of medicine they prescribed. I a food scientist has to help Muslims but not Muslims doctors. I think they are busy making money and I am here doing every thing free for Muslims. You need Vitamins D does not matter it D2 or D3. Here are Halal vitamins D:

    halal Natural Vitamin D 3 1000 IU Vitamins Solgar Available at Vitamin Shoppe Stores 09-08-13
    halal Freeda Kosher Vitamin D2 2000 IU 100 Tablets Vitamins Freeda Available at www.koshervitamins.com or call 1-800-645-1899 06-07-13

    You have to take 2 or tablet of Vitamin D2 from above brand.

    halal Natures Answer Kosher Vitamin D3 Drops 4000 IU 0.5 OZ Vitamins Natures Answer Available at www.koshervitamins.com or call 1-800-645-1899 06-07-13

    A doctor has argue me last Friday at a masjid about Halal status of food the masjid is selling after Juma Prayer, at one time they are providing crounton which could contain pork rennet Romano cheese. I told them there are no Halal croutons in USA. They also provide non Halal cookies. The doctor is defending it and questioning my Halal criteria. But they are very good Muslims doctors too.

    Masajid management do not care about Halal status of foods they sell because it taste good and appered good. But they have to answer to Allah on the day of judgement.

    Please provide above vitamins d to you are doctor ask what minimum Internal Unit of vitamin D 2 you can use and also ask about Vitamin D3.

    There are no Halal vitamins or Vitamin D at CVS or Walgreen or Riteaid or any phatmacy in USA.

               
    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.
