  • Salam, I read this on Kraft Site. Q: Does Kraft 100% Parmesan Grated Cheese qualify as Kosher? A: Kraft 100% Parmesan Grated Cheese is not Kosher. While most/all ingredients used in the production of Kraft 100% Parmesan Grated Cheese are Kosher, the cheese itself has not been classified as Kosher by a rabbinical agency. http://www.kraftcanada.com/en/Products/P-R/Kraft100ParmesanGratedCheese.aspx - Toufiq Yakoob
  • AOA

    The answer is write but they do not elaborte that many other cheese companies makes Kraft Parmesan cheese which are not Kosher certified. Kraft own plant makes kosher certified starter culture bacteria and rennet. When I was working for Kraft in 2011 one of Muslim plant manager ask me to visit the Kraft culture plant but I did not have time. But I will not recommend to use Kraft Parmesan cheese because of cross contamination.

  • AOA

     

    Red 40 & Yellow 5 are chemical dyes, lakes and they are Halal if used as powder or granular forms but if they have to use as liquid then vegetable oil or glycerin is added as a solvent. Glycerin can be made from pork or beef or vegetable fat. Only vegetable fat based glycerin is Halal.

    A kosher symbol such as U or K  on any food package containing red 40 or yellow 5 indicates that either Red 40 or Yellow 5 is used either as a dry powder or if it is used as in liquid form in the product then vegetable oil or vegetable fat based glycerin was used as a solvent.

    It is not Halal because:

     

    Is Kosher Gelatin Halal

    No, Kosher gelatin is not Halal because it is made either from pork or non zabiha beef and therefore kosher gelatin from pork is Haram. A liberal kosher symbol K appears on yogurts containing kosher gelatin because some Rabbis consider kosher gelatin from pork as kosher.

  • AOA

    We do not recommend any Halal certified food products or vitamins as Halal because  we do not know what criteria those Halal certifying organizations applies. You have to investigate youself. We do Halal certify food products owned by Muslims without any fee but many Muslim owned business doe not take the advanatge. We do not know what hidden ingredients are used in Noor Vitamins and we have no way of knowning, it could be not Halal.

  • AOA, i have a question regarding soy sauce.can you please tell me some halal soy sauce brands available in USA..and is Lee Kum Kee soy sauce halal? it has the following ingredients. INGREDIENTS: Water, Salt, Soybean, Sugar, Wheat Flour, Sodium Benzoate Added As A Preservative, Disodium 5’-Inosinate and Disodium 5’-Guanylate As Flavour Enhancers. JazakAllah. - sister
  • AOA

    It is not Halal soy sauce because it is a Naturally Brewed Soy sauce and it is also contain Nucleotide. La Choy brand of multipurpose sauce is a Halal soy sauce.

     

    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.

  • Is non alcohol beer halal? - Nusrat Yesmin
  • AOA

    No, from our Alert section:

     

    Seach results for the term: alcohol free

    Total results generated: 3

    Alert Title Description Date
    Is alcohol free beer or wine Halal to consume, the answer is no

     

    IS ALCOHOL FREE BEER OR WINE HALAL TO CONSUME, THE ANSWER IS NO

    All alcohol free beer, wine, champion are not made from scratch but they are all made from real beer, wine and champion. In Islamic fiqah such as tabdeele Mahiya does not applied to alcohol free beer and wine because Tabdeele Mahiya has specific requirements to apply to Haram product to become Halal  such as converting alcohol a Haram ingredient to vinegar a Halal ingredient.

     In the case of alcohol free beer or wine no such thing happened, there is no chemical reaction, there is no name change which are few requirements of Tabdeele Mahiya. Production of alcohol free beer or wine is 100% based on physical action i.e. removing only alcohol from beer or wine without touching any other components of beer or wine. In USA, FDA requirements of alcohol free beer or wine must contains not more than 0.5% alcohol by volume or Dealcoholised: over 0.05% but less than 0.5% ABV(Alcohol By Volume). So all alcohol free beer from USA in Muslim countries contains a maximum of 0.5% Alcohol by ABV. This 0.5% is the result of alcoholic fermentation of sugars by yeast the principle used in making alcoholic beverages. This alcohol is the part of alcohol present in real beer and wine. Intoxicants were defined by our Prophet Sayyidina Mohammed Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallum when he said in the authentic hadith that was reported by Abu Da’wwod and Al Tirmithi: whatever a lot of it intoxicates a person, little of it is forbidden. In the above hadith there is no mention of amount or number of serving of getting intoxicated by consuming little amount of intoxicant in a product which contains little amount of intoxicant. So consuming number of cans of alcohol free beer is irreverent. The basic point is the large or little amount of intoxicant is Haram and alcohol is a intoxicant. 

     Alcohol content in Alcohol free beer or wine disqualify to consume based on the above hadith. There is no way any company in USA or anywhere can eliminate completely 100% alcohol from a beer or wine used by vacuum processing or using micro filter system to remove alcohol from beer or wine as they currently used in alcohol free beer or wine industry. What about rest of component of beer or wine. It remains as is, nothing happened to them. Alcohol free beer has the same volatile compounds as in original beer or wine. The purpose of alcohol free beer or wine is to maintain similar characteristic including taste, smell as in real beer or wine. All components of intoxicant are Haram because they are not present in original grape for grape wine or original cereals for beer made from cereals. All the components of beer or wine are the by-product of alcoholic fermentation of sugar content of grape or cereal by yeast.

    So it is in the opinion of MCG that alcohol free beer or wine is not Halal to consume by Muslim.

    Facts about Non Alcoholic Wine

     

    FACTS ABOUT NON ALCOHOLIC WINE OR BEER
                                                     
    This information is provided for Muslims all over the world so that they understand how a non alcoholic wine or beer is made and available throughout the world including in Muslim countries. The following are the facts about alcohol free wine, beer, its manufacture methods and its possible impact on Islamic Sharia(I am not a Alim but I will provide information so that the Muftiyans can  make their own fatwas).
    1. Fact number one, Alcohol free wine or beer is made from real wine or beer. Wines from grape, date, honey, wheat is Khamr and Khamr is Haram according to several ahadith.
    2. Questions for Muftiyans, do they think that every component of wine also Haram including water in wine even wine made from grape.
    The composition of wine is:
    Water 80-85%, Alcohol 10-20%, Acids 0.4 - 1%, Sugar 0.1%(because all sugar in grape is used to produce alcohol), Mineral Salts 0.2 to 0.4%, Coloring substances 0.01 to 0.5%,
    Aromatic substances 0.01 to 0.1%, Sulphites 10 to 200 Part Millions
     3. Manufacturing processes used in manufacture of alcohol free wine or beer:
     
    a. Alcohol free wine beverages is produced by using  US patented process(4775538) where table wine is combined with demineralized water and poured into a centrifugal evaporator where alcohol is spin off to produce a alcohol free wine base. Then grape juice concentrate is added to alcohol free wine base to make alcohol free wine.

    b. Vacuum  Distillation where real wine or real beer is exposed to vacuum. Where due to change in atmospheric pressure with low heat or no heat the alcohol is distilled off.
    c. Reverse Osmosis, a procedure used to clean impurities from drinking water. Most American homes has this unit under their kitchen sinks. The reverse Osmosis has filters with very minutes pores Through these pores filters only alcohol and water with volatile acids in wine or in beer is filtered out of wine or beer without heat. Then those volatile acid and water is put back to a mixture of syrupy mixture of sugar, flavor  compounds on the other side of filter after distilling out the alcohol from alcohol and water acid mixture. This is also called dealcoholized wine or beer.
     
    d. Non alcoholic sparkling wine or beer is made with a secondary fermentation to produce a non alcoholic sparkling wine or beer with less than 0.5% alcohol. Then carbon dioxide  is forced to make a carbonated non alcoholic beer.

    4. Another fact is that all the experts in this industry said that it is very difficult and very expensive to eliminate all alcohol from wine or beer. This is the reason Non Alcoholic beverages still contain some original alcohol from wine or beer. This leads to a US Federal Law about Non Alcoholic wine or beer which states that Non Alcoholic wine or beer can contain up to 0.5% "original alcohol of wine or beer by volume."
    If you consider above breakdown of grape wine, the non alcoholic grape wine contains  5%  to 10% original amount of wine in the Non Alcoholic grape wine based on 10% to 20% alcohol content in grape wine and if the Non Alcoholic grape wine contains maximum 0.5% original alcohol of wine or beer by volume according to US federal law.

    So based on this calculation a Muslim who decides to consume Non Alcoholic grape wine  is consuming 5% to 10% of original grape wine in Non Alcoholic grape wine.
    5. Another fact is that many producers of Non Alcoholic wine and beer want to keep the same original flavors compounds in Non Alcoholic wine or beer because to match original flavor and taste of wine or beer. Sometimes they add 2-2.5% residual sugar content to match a completely dry alcoholic wine. Some companies advertized that their Non Alcoholic wine or beer contains same original abundant flavors of original wine and beer.
     
    It was reported in research that It takes about 10 nonalcoholic malt beverages to equal the alcohol in one American-style lager.

    MCG thinks every component of prohibited wine or Khamr is also Haram same as every part of pig is Haram. But some Muftiyans may have different opinion.
    The purpose of this scientific information is to provide facts about Non Alcoholic wine or beer to every Muslims so that they can make decision to consume or not to consume Non Alcoholic wine or beer. But Muslim
     
    Consumer Group consider Non Alcoholic wine or beer as Haram beverage and recommend Muslims not to consume them.
     
    This article is based on some available scientific literature and Allah knows better.

  • AOA

    This is wrong statement. Either she has now information from technical people or she is putting her two cents. In USA and Canada any vanilla flavor is obtained by extracting the vanilla flavor with alcohol and water. I do not how you ask the alcohol question, lot of other Muslim consumers ask this way which is on our home page.

     

     HOW TO PHRASE YOUR QUESTION ABOUT ALCOHOL IN FLAVOR OF A FOOD PRODUCT

    The question about alcohol in flavor is a tricky one because it is a hidden ingredient of the flavor. If you ask alcohol question to non technical consumer department person of a food company, first they look at the ingredients list of the food product and will find no alcohol is mentioned. Then they will say we do not use alcohol in our products because they do not know the alcohol is a hidden ingredient of the flavor. We request Muslim consumers to use the following phrase when asking or writing the question to consumer department of any food company regarding the presence or absence of alcohol in the flavor of a food product.

    " is alcohol used as a solvent in flavor; 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 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 alcohol was used or not in the flavor as a solvent. The consumer department can not answer this question because they do not have access to specification of ingredients".
