    Veggtables at Subway Stores

    A brother has suggested the following message to all Muslims:

    Salam Alaykum, this isn't a question it's actually advice for subway lovers..... I saw someone ask about cross contamination in the veggies, I see the workers they ONLY change the gloves when it's a new person ordering, they still touch the pork and chicken then go straight to the veggies, so yes the veggies are contaminated by haram meat.... Subway always has new freshly cut veggies in the fridge, they don't always have all the veggies but they have tons, well to avoid eating contaminated veggies ask the worker to use the veggies in the fridge, they're fresh and not contaminated! :) I hope you post this for everyone to see.

  • 👉MAIMUN INFORMATION Today, with technological advancements made in all fields, including the flavour industry, there are many forms of flavours to choose from. There are essenbces, emulsions, different types of powders and many others. We, as representatives of the French flavour house, Expressions Aromatiques can assure you of quality flavours. All our flavours conform to stringent EU specification, are 100% alcohol-free and have the added advantage of being halal. (Certificates available on request) We can custom make a flavour, counter-match and even submit numerous samples until a satisfactory one is found. Contracts are an available option. We can produce all sorts of flavour; from powder to liquid, oil-soluble to water spray-dried to emulsions, sprays (to sprinkle on food for that extra aroma). All these is based on your product information i.e. whether you require oil-soluble or water-soluble flavours, whether heating takes place during the production process, whether the product will undergo extra treatment or are at the final level of consumption etc. Accordingly, samples are submitted for appraisals. It is important to note that the right flavour can only deliver that perfect taste and aroma if the right form of flavouring is used. Let us flavour your foods for you. MAIMUN - Asalamualaiku... Maaf ....this is the information they have put in their website pls let know whether we can use their products. Sorry for takleef .. you can pls check the website of wish so .. but pls help to clearify if we can use as many muslims rely on their products and consider it safe to use jazakumullah... may Allah reward you - asiya
  • AOA

    They do not make food products themself but sell to the manufacturer. Even if their flavor free of alcohol or Halal certified it does not do good to Muslim consumers in Europe. It is the food product which need to be Halal. The food manufacturer might used Haram hidden ingredients or use othe alcohol containing ingredients.

    The statement do not help Muslim consumers because all other ingredients and hidden ingredients has to be Halal.

    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. 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.

    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.

  • Why vinegar is halal but soy sauce is not, though both are made by fermentation - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    There is a differrence. In vinegar there are one to two fermentation. If it is made with dilute alcohol then it is g through acetobacter fermentaion which converting alcohol to acetic acid fermentation. But if vinegar has to be made from sugar based raw material then it goes two fermentation cycle. First sugar has to be converted to alcohol by alcoholic fermentation then acetobacter fermetation to acetic acid and water. In alcoholic fermentaion yeast is involed and in acetobacter fermentation is involved acetobacter bacteria.

    Naturally from sugar based raw material vinegar can be made without adding any yeast or bacteria. This is way it is made during our Prophet Sayyidina Mohammed Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallum times.

    Naturally Brewed Sauce is made with maturing soybean and wheat with molds then it is fermented with yeast and lactic acid bacteria. The whole process takes several months ending with 2-3% alcohol in natural brewed soy sauce.

    But there is Halal soy sauce where no fermentation occur.

    From our FAQ:

     

    What are the ingredients of Haram Soy Sauce:

    The Naturally Brewed Soy is the Haram soy sauce. It is made just like wine containing 2-3% alcohol. The ingredients list contains Wheat, Soy and other ingredients. Food companies do not mention Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce under the ingredients statement. They just mention soy sauce but within parenthesis they write Wheat and Soy. This is the only way to find a Haram Soy Sauce.

    What are the ingredients of Halal Soy Sauce:

    All purpose soy sauce or non naturally brewed soy sauce is a Halal soy sauce made from water, salt, hydrolyzed soy protein, corn syrup and sodium benzoate. La Choy All Purpose Soy sauce is a Halal Soy Sauce.

  • AOA

    You have to find out from the Imam of your masjid or call local Halal meat stores to ask whether they serve hand slaughtered chicken, beef, lamb or goat. If they yes then buy it. Some one ask Hajrat Imam Jaffar Sadeq RA the grand son of Imam Hussain RA how to know the meat is zabiha Halal. He RA said if the meat shrinked by on the fire or by cooking then it is Halal but if the meat spreads then it is not Halal.

  • is red 40 a pork product - maajida muhammed
  • 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.

    New TitleDescriptionDate
    What are the requirements of a Halal ice cream

    The following are the requirements of a Halal Ice Cream

    1. It must a have a Kosher symbol which meets the Halal requirements (why not Halal symbol because many  ice cream products with Halal symbol are made with alcohol containing natural or artificial flavor and Halal certifying organizations say that 0.1% or 0.5% alcohol is Halal and it does not make you intoxicated. But there is no Hadith which says 0.1% or 0.5% intoxicant (Alcohol) as Halal.

    2. There should be no natural or artificial listed as ingredient under the ingredients statement. Most liquid natural or artificial flavor are made with alcohol as a solvent. These  alcohol containing liquid natural or artificial flavors  are added to ice cream after pasteurization and cooling process so alcohol in flavors is not subject to heat treatment. Alcohol in ice cream remained as is.

    3. It should not have Vanilla or vanilla flavor or vanilla extract as part of ingredient statement because vanilla or vanilla flavor is obtained by extracting with alcohol from vanilla beans. According to FDA vanilla extract must contain minimum of 35% alcohol otherwise it will not be call as vanilla extract.

    4. It should not ground vanilla beans or vanilla bean speck because it is not real vanilla beans which are very expensive. Ground vanilla bean or Vanilla bean specks are made mostly from vanilla bean seeds which are obtained after alcohol extraction of Vanilla Beans for vanilla flavors. The seeds leftover after alcohol extraction are dried and grind to make ground vanilla beans or vanilla bean specks. This is called exhausted ground vanilla beans or vanilla bean specks in the food industry.

    5. Ice cream should not have Carrageenan as an ingredient because ethyl alcohol or isopropyl alcohol or potassium chloride (KCL) is used during processing of carrageenan and it takes time to investigate what was used during processing.

    6. Ice cream should be free from rum flavor and other liquor because kosher certified product may contain liquor or rum flavor.

    7. Ice cream bars should not have confectionary glaze or resinous glaze as coating on ice cream bars because these glazes are made with shellac dissolve in alcohol.

    8. Ice Cream should not contain any Extract such as Mint Extract in Haagen Daazs Mint Five Ice cream. Alcohol is used in some extract as a extracting solvent.

    There are 46 Halal ice cream and ice cream topping listed on MCG website and they do not have flavor in them.

    There is only one Halal soft vanilla ice cream available in USA which is made by Pacific Valley Dairy (Phone number 636-334-4700 www.pvdairy.com, please find out whether it is available in your city). This Halal soft vanilla ice was sold at ISNA convention in 2007 at Chicago. It is Halal because it is kosher certified and made with artificial vanilla flavor with propylene glycol (a Halal solvent) as a solvent according to the company. This soft vanilla ice cream is not available in supermarkets only at food service places.
