    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.

    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.

  • Oops, I accidentally sent it without completing the ingredient list. Here is the rest… Ingredients: ethylparaben, propylparaben, methylparaben, isobutylparaben, butylparaben, retinyl palmitate (va), tocopherol acetate (ve). I emailed the company but my request was too long so I plan on asking them again once I can narrow it down to a couple of ingredients that you believe could possibly contain haram alcohol. Thank you! - s

  • AOA, I bought some makeup recently and I am trying to see if it is halal to use. The company that makes it does not use any animal ingredients which eliminates that concern however I am worried about the possibility that it could contain haram alcohol. I am going to list the ingredients (in the exact same words the product lists) that l am unsure about and hope that you can tell me which ones are not halal to use (keep in mind that the company does not use animal ingredients so alcohol is the only concern). Ingredients: ethylhexyl palmitate, microcrystalline wax (cera microcristallina), synthetic beeswax, ozokerite, polyethylene, ceresin, silica dimethyl silyate, polyisobutene, neotame, polyglyceryl-4 isostearate, phenoxethanol, ethylparaben, propylaea right now, - s
