  • in response to my previous question about YEAST EXTRACT , you nswered that it is halal only if it is obtained from bakers yeast ....what is it ... many food products like cereal bars , vegetable seasoning contain yeast extract - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    From our FAQ:

    Halal status of Yeast Extract or autolyzed Yeast:

    If the yeast extract or autolyzed yeast is made from baker's yeast then it is a Halal ingredient. However if it is made from brewer's yeast, a by-product of beer making then it is not considered as Halal according to the MCG criteria because beer can penetrate in the yeast cells and never convert other things.

  • I am unable to find any soy sauce in UK without wheat . If NATURALLY BREWED is not writren and ingrediends contain wheat and soy sauce ....even then it 7s haram - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    I have no information about soy sauce in UK but follow this Halal criteria:

    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.

    If it is made with natural or artificial flavor then alcohol might be used. Write to Nabisco this way:

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

On your website it is mentioned in the comments section that Hershey's replied saying that they add aclcohol in the process but it evaporates.While for the reply from Hershey's with regard to Dairy Milk Chocolate bar it says that none of the flavors used conatins ethanol or ethyl alcohol. My doubt is , I might be wrong but is it possible that as they say for Hershey's chocolate bar ..they could use alcohol in initial stages for Daity Milk and as it might get evaported and since it is evaporated they have said that it does not conatin alcohol. Please let me know about it. Jazakumullah - mohammed

  • Assalammualaikum, Thank you for your swift reply. I was the one who very recently asked about natural identical vanilla flavor. You provided a table where they discussed different terminologies ... but I'm still a little unclear ... does this mean natural identical vanilla flavor is halal? Because (correct me if I'm wrong) they don't use alcohol as a solvent? There is also a halal sign here & the product I bought is made in Asia, so that explains the terminology but I would like to double check since there are many scholarly opinions out there & I choose the safest. - dawn
  • AOA

    This is reason USA is free from E-Numbers and those terminlogy. You have to contact the manufac turer to find out whether natural identical vanilla flavor is Vanillin a artificial vanilla f;avor which is Halal. This is to satisfy you because I provide you terminology and based on it is a Halal artificila vanilla flavor.

  • Assalammualaikum. Is 'natural identical flavor' (ex: vanilla flavor) halal? Many websites seem to classify it as not being equivalent to 'natural flavor' (vanilla) in the sense of its ingredient, how it is processed and made. And I read that the terminologies may sometimes overlap in different countries but they are different? A website mentioned: "There is difference between Natural Flavor and Natural Flavoring. Natural Flavors are made with or without alcohol as a solvent. Where as the Natural Flavoring are extractives of spices or spices themselves. The extraction chemical is acetone, which is a halal ingredient. Cinnamon can be also labeled as Natural Flavoring." - dawn
  • AOA

    Natural Flavor could be Oleoresin of Black Pepper (spice extract with Aceton which Halal) as it use in Kraft BBQ Suase. Some comoanies use spice extract as natural flavoring but you have to verify. The websiteyou mentioned mix up, natural flavor may contain alcohol but if spice extract Oleoresin used as Natural Flavoring then it is Halal contain no alcohol if spic extracted with Halal Acetone.

    Natural Identical flavor terminology is not used in USA but used in Europe and Asia.

    Difference in terminology regarding natural flavor and identicalnatural flavor used in Europe and Australia

    Food companies in USA and Canada donot use the word "Natural Identical Flavor" instead Natural flavor is used. But in Europe and Australia following termeinology is used for flavors:

    Type

    Description

    Natural flavoring substances

    Flavoring substances obtained from plant or animal raw materials, by physical, microbiological or enzymatic processes. They can be either used in their natural state or processed for human consumption, but cannot contain any nature-identical or artificial flavoring substances.

    Nature-identicalflavoring substances

    Flavoring substances that are obtained by synthesis or isolated through chemical processes, which are chemically and organoleptically identical to flavoring substances naturally present in products intended for human consumption. They cannot contain any artificial flavoring substances.

    Artificial flavoring substances

    Flavoring substances not identified in a natural product intended for human consumption, whether or not the product is processed. These are typically produced by fractional distillation and additional chemical manipulation of naturally sourced chemicals, crude oil or coal tar. Although they are chemically different, in sensory characteristics are the same as natural ones. (From Australian Food Standards Guidelines andThe Flavourings in Food Regulations, Amended 1994 of UK)

  • Assalamou alikum Is all doritos halal cuz my teacher called them and the company said tht they made all the doritos halal recently Plz answer Jzk - fatima
  • AOA

    Either Frito Lay is lying or your teacher.

    Alert Title Description Date
    Why Cheetos and Doritos (except Doritos Toasted Corn Tortilla Chips) are not Halal

    There is no kosher symbol on the package of Cheetos and Doritos. This makes them Non Halal because they can add any Haram Hidden or Processing aid ingredients without mentioning under the ingredients statement. Cheese used in Cheetos and Doritos are not Kosher certified and not Halal. Sine these products are not under Halal or Kosher certification then Frito Lay can use non kosher certified flavors or colors. There is no restriction for Frito Lay to make Cheetos or Doritos on their own lines or on co-packers line where pork containing products are made. This exposes a great possibility of cross contamination of pork containing ingredients. All these snacks are very attractive to adults and children but there is a Hadith which says that Allah will not accept your dua for 40 days if a Muslim eats intentionally a bit of Haram food. So MCG recommend Muslims not consume above snacks.
