  • Is pure bourbon vanilla pods in loaker gardens wafers halal thanks - Rima
  • AOA

    They are not halal.

    From our FAQ:

    Vanilla Bean Specks:

    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 vanilla bean specks. This is called exhausted Vanilla bean specks in the food industry. Vanilla beans specks without alcohol extraction are very expensive, so many ice cream manufacturers use exhausted types of vanilla bean specks. Our Islamic Scholars consider exhausted vanilla bean specks as not Halal because it is obtained after alcohol extraction. Alcohol is used on vanilla beans to get vanilla flavor and it contaminates the Halal vanilla bean seeds.

    They can give any name to make that it is obtained from fresh from tree.

  • AOA

    Great Value (Wal_Mart) do not manufacture the fish stick somebody like Gorton or Van De Kemp may be providing to them under their Great Value brand name. Here are two point. !. The fish should be caight from sea or river and should not be farm raised because we do not know what feed they feed them. 2. If the supplying company make beer batter product then it will not be Halal. Although ingredients are Halal.

    You can buy this Halal fish from them:

  • Asslamu Alikum Why dont you guys update all the food halal and haram status? Doesn't food ingredients change every year ............. Are you sure that scan halal cant be trusted...... Many ulamas have doubts about muslim consumer group bc of its updation problem rather they support scan halal! - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Do you know how many people run the reserach and website update. There are no guys, I am the only one who does everything. I try my best to updates the products. Yes, there are old dated products which I am trying update. Very few food products changes ingredients because it is very costly for a food company to chnage package and ingredients list. Stove Top Stuffing which I worked was developed in 1975 and still has same ingreients. So does the Kelloggs Special K Original cereal.

    SCan Halal is not trust worthy, how could you trust computer guys who run it they never in a food plant. What they are doing just reading ingredients list say Halal or Haram, they do not know there are hidden ingredients in every foods. They provide Halal status to alcohol containing flavors in foods. I recommend not to trust them. Inshalla we are coming up with a very good APP which covers regional brands too.

    Majority of Muslim ulema do not care about what is Halal or what is Haram. They eat every thing if it tastes good and appear goods. They never try to find out alcohol in food. Some say little alcohol is Halal. They drink alcohol containing Coke, 7 UP, Dr. Pepper, Spirit, Mountain Dew. You never find any Juma Khutaba associated with Halal Food.

    Please provide me the lsit of products which are five year old and ask your ulema to provide me.

We appreciate your interest in our products. The Mono and Diglycerides used in our DeansĀ® Ice Cream Sandwiches are sourced from soy (plan-based). Keep in mind that we are not the manufacturer of the carrageenan ingredient; rather we source it from an independent supplier. The method used for the food-grade carrageenan used in these products is up to the supplier. However, there is no residual alcohol found in the finished product. Thanks again for contacting the Consumer Affairs Department. We hope that this information was helpful. Sincerely, Osvaldo Sapien Consumer Response Representative Ref: N1947210 Can we eat this? - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Somebody send e-mail that Dean suppleir of Carrageenan do not use alcohol. If there is a kosher symbol on the package containing Mono & Diglycerides it means it is from vegetable fat. From our FAQ:

    What is Mono and Diglycerides:

    Mono and Diglycerides are fat based emulsifier and are made by reacting glycerol (fat based) with fats and oils. Mono and diglycerides can be made from beef, pork, or soybean fat. Only soybean or zabiha slaughtered cow fat based Mono and Diglyceries are Halal. A Halal or Kosher symbol (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements) on a food package containing Mono and Diglycerides indicates that it is obtained from soybean fat. In the absence of Halal or Kosher symbol on the package Muslim consumers should contact the manufacturer to find out the source of Mono & Diglycerides.

  • AOA

    The organization who Halal certified Similic do consider 0.05% alcohol in the food or the nucleotide which is obatined from Turula yeast which is grown on alcohol. They consider it Halal even if it grows on alcohol. MCG do not recommend to feed any infant formula containing Nucleotide to any Muslim infants because it looks like you feeding alcohol to the infant. The organization does not care about Muslim infant. They also Halal certified lot food products which are made with alcohol containing flavors.

     

    There are 25 Halal infant formula listed on our website which are not made with Nucleotide then why you have to buy Similac.

    Nucleotides are not Halal in Infant Baby Formulas

     

    NUCLEOTIDES IN INFANT BABY FORMULAS ARE NOT HALAL ACCORDING TO MCG'S CRITERIA

     

    Nucleotides are composed of nucleobase (nitrogenous base), a five-carbon sugar (either ribose or 2'- deoxyribose), and one to three phosphate groups. Nucleotide is made of three functional groups: a nucleic acid base, a sugar, and a phosphate. It is a structural building block of RNA and DNA.

    Nucleotide which is also known as Adenosine 5' - Monophosphate, Cytidene 5' -  Monophosphate, Disodium Guanosine 5' -  Monophosphate, Disodium Uridine 5' - Monophosphate, Inosito5' - Monophosphate. These nucleotides are obtained from Turula yeast cell's RNA. Ethyl Alcohol is provided as nutrients to Turula yeast cells to multiply in millions.

    MCG has asked this question to Nucleotides manufacturer company:

    " Use of ethyl alcohol during the manufacturing of Nucleotide"

    Here is their answer we received today:

     " The answer to your question is we do use alcohol for a nutrient source for the yeast. As for in the actual powder there is very little residual. If you have any other questions please let me know."

    Use of alcohol to feed the Torula yeast make the Torula yeast as not Halal based MCG's criteria for Halal. Alcohol goes inside the cells of Torula yeast for its growth.

    MCG 's ulema said if any Halal thing get in contact with alcohol that Halal thing became not Halal. The manufacturer of Nucleotide also has the opportunity to use Halal sugar can to grow the Torula yeast but they preferred to use alcohol.

    Based on MCG's criteria any infant baby formula containing nucleotides or Adenosine 5' - Monophosphate, Cytidene 5' -  Monophosphate, Disodium Guanosine 5' -  Monophosphate, Disodium Uridine 5' - Monophosphate, Inosito5' - Monophosphate is not consider Halal.

    Nucleotides were not used in infant baby formulas 5 years back but due to a publication of a Harvard medical research indicating nucleotide in infant baby formulas is to help babies build a good immune, digestive system and decreased incident of diarrhea, increase the immune system of babies and prevent babies from diarrhea.

    There are 21 infant baby formulas in USA which are Halal because they do not use nucleotides or Adenosine 5' - Monophosphate, Cytidene 5' -  Monophosphate, Disodium Guanosine 5' -  Monophosphate, Disodium Uridine 5' - Monophosphate, Inosito5' - Monophosphate.

  • AOA

    Brother Sadek ANY WINE or ANY BEER OR ANY INTOXICANT IS HARAM IN ISLAM. Even Alcohol free beer and wine are Haram because left over wine and beer.

    From Quran:

    5. Surah Al-Maï`idah Ayat Number 90:

    90. O you who believe! Intoxicants (all kinds of alcoholic drinks), gambling, Al-Ansab , and Al-Azlam (arrows for seeking luck or decision) are an abomination of Shaitanï (Satan) handiwork. So avoid (strictly all) that (abomination) in order that you may be successful.

    Ahadith:

    A little bit of intoxicant/Alcohol is haram too:

    Narrated Aisha, Ummul Muminin RA:

    I heard the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) say: Every intoxicant is forbidden; if a faraq of anything causes intoxication, a handful of it is forbidden. ( Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 26:Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah)

    Narrated Umm Salamah RA, Ummul Muminin RA:

    The Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) forbade every intoxicant and everything which produces languidness. (Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 28:Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah) 3678 )

    Alcohol cannot be consumed as a medicine or for the remedy of cold climate:

     

    Narrated Tariq ibn Suwayd RA or Suwayd ibn Tariq RA:

    Wail RA said: Tariq ibn Suwayd RA or Suwayd ibn Tariq RA asked the Prophet (peace be upon him) about wine, but he ()forbade it. He again asked him(PUBH), but he() forbade him. He RA said to him: Prophet of Allah, it is a medicine. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: No it is a disease.( Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 28: Medicine (Kitab Al-Tibb)

    Narrated Daylam al-Himyari RA:

    I asked the Prophet (peace be upon him) and said: Apostle of Allah ! we live in a cold land in which we do heavy work and we make a liquor from wheat to get strength from if for our work and to stand the cold of our country. He asked: Is it intoxicating I replied: Yes. He said: You must avoid it. I said: The people will not abandon it. He said: If they do not abandon it, fight with them. ( Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 26: Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah)

    It is forbidden to prepare vinegar from khamr (wine):

    Anas RA reported that Allah Messenger (may peace be upon him) was asked about the use of Khamr from which vinegar is prepared. He said: No (it is prohibited).(sahih Muslim, The book of Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah)4891)

    Narrated AbdurRahman ibn Ghanam RA:

    Malik ibn AbuMaryam RA said: AbdurRahman ibn Ghanam RA entered upon us and we discussed tila and he RA said: AbuMalik al-Ashari RA told me that he heard the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) say: Some of my people will assuredly drink wine calling it by another name. (Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 26:Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah)
