  • Salam aleikum. i am sorry for confusing regarding my question below. I didnt say that i dont speak aboyt USA i speak about my country and i hear rumors and claims that many products are being grown using medicine. Do you know anything about such medicine, can it be haram? JazakAllahu khairan Salam aleikum. I have a question about products that are not due to the season. For example we know that cucumbers and tomatoes are not grown in winter (if i am not mistaken), but our stores are full of them any season of the year. I suspect that to grow them farmers use medicine,Allah knows best. Do you know anything about such medicine, does it contain anything haram or is it bad for our health? Could you please share what you know in shaa Allah? JazakAllahu khairan. -┬áTM AOA It is not true the farmer use medicine. There are some part of USA, they can grow all the time or bring from Mexico and other countries. - TM
  • AOA

     

    I do not know in other country but majority of countries do not use medicine in food product. All crops such as wheat, rice, vegetable grown every part of the world with chemical fertilizer and anti bug spray on them. So many consumers use organic fruits and vegetables where no chemical use to grow it. Fruits and vegetable used in manufacturing food products are not organic but where chemical used to prevent plant disease and to have better yeild. But about of chemical is very minimum.

  • A.a i contacted chips ahoy and asked abt alcohol. This is what i got: Hi Haseeb, Thank you for contacting Mondelez International. Alcohol in foods is sometimes used as a preservative or in the manufacturing of some flavors and aromas used in foods. When alcohol is used in our products in a significant amount or has a technical effect it will be labeled on the ingredient line. For example, alcohol is required to be labeled on the ingredient line of vanilla extract. However, when vanilla extract is used in vanilla cookies, then the ingredient line will list the vanilla extract; but because the alcohol has no technical function in the cookie and is present in such a minute amount, it would not be required to be labeled on the ingredient line. As vanillin is artificial, and its function is flavoring, it is declared as artificial flavor in the ingredient line on the label as Mondelez International is not required by Regulation to break a flavor's composition out. If an alcohol type ingredient was present in the product formulation then it would get called out by its common name, example "white wine" in the ingredient line and the level/function would be as a flavoring ingredient only. Please be aware that formulas may change and the best source of information is the label. We ask that our consumers take the time to check the ingredient statement on the package prior to purchasing a product. Unfortunately, I have no further information to provide as it is considered proprietary. If you haven't done so already, please add our site to your favorites and visit us again soon!

    I worked for Mondelez (Old Nabisco) I do not have to mentioned their response because it is already explained on our website and you did not read our Ingredients section, FAQ. I knew the formula for Oreo cookies and Chips Ahoy cookies because I used them in Nabisco Oreo and Chips Ahoy Brownies. I had access to specification of natural flavor and Vanillin from Nabisco suppliers. All natural flavor used in Nabisco cookies are made with alcohol as a solvent but alcohol is not reported on ingredients statement because it is considered as a processing aid ingredient or in lamen term Hidden ingredient. Chips Ahoy Cookies are not Halal. Oreo cookies are only Halal if they made with Vanillin or artificial vanilla flavor. If you see any Nabisco product made with natural and artificial flavor then it will not be Halal due to use of alcohol as a hidden ingredients. Natural Flavor in Nabisco Ritz crackers is actually vanilla flavor containing alcohol.

  • Salam aleikum. If i see any fruit has a spot that is kind of old, soft and color is already changed, do i consider that spot to have alcohol in it due to fermentaiton etc? I think but not sure, i read here that if fruit is older then 3 days then haram fermentation starts taking place and Allah knows best. Apologies if i read it in some other website or misunderstood the information. What can you in shaa Allah tell about this? JazakAllahu khairan, - TM
  • AOA

    You heard wrong, fruit juices without pasteuraization not fruit ferment in three days long time ago. I kept fruits more than 3 days and eat them. Ripped fruits already have minute amount of alcohol naturally produced and this alcohol is Halal. You just cut the spot and consume the good part of fruits and there is nothing wrong unles they messhy with bad smell.

  • AOA

    They are not Halal because lack of kosher symbol on the package. You can obtain a Halal vitamins from our website or from www.koshervitamins.com

     

    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

  • AOA

    Gelatin can not be made from plant only from animal and mostly from pig. You should not eat anything with gelatin in it.

     

    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

    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. It is important to know that the fish gelatin from cat fish is not consider Halal or Kosher because of fish mouth.
