  • I would like to know what's red 40? And if I find it in product ingredients is that mean not halal? - Asaad
  • AOA

    FD&C Red 40 & Yellow 5 or FD&C Blue 1 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.

  • Dear brother, Here you are the link once again (please take the entire link) http://www.garnier.com.au/_en/_au/programmes/faq/answer.aspx?tpcode=PROGRAMMES%5EFAQ%5EDEODORANTS%5EDEODORANTS_T2%5EDEODORANTS_T2_Q21 If the link doesn't open again. Here you are what it reads: (((Some deodorants say they are "alcohol-free" and still have a scent? Does it in fact contain alcohol? Alcohol-free means that there is no alcohol added to the product's formula as a disinfectant. The amount of alcohol that is used for the scent is minimal.))) Actually, my brother, this link is VERY DISAPPOINTING to me. It mad me have doubts in all alcohol-free products I use. For example, I use an alcohol-free hair gel cream. When I read its ingredients, I found the word "fragrance" listed in it, even though it is alcohol-free. Based on the above-mentioned facts, does it mean that any alcohol-free product is not necessarily alcohol-free when it has "fragrance" in its ingredients list? Thank you brother May God reward you - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    You should buy their product if they are unscent or perfume free. Alcohol is the hidden ingredient of scent and perfume. The alcohol free label is for ingredients which are listed under ingredients statement.

  • We are a fully cooked food manufacturing company here in USA which is USDA plant and we are also Halal Certified. My Question is can I process Halal Certified Lamb from Australia/New Zealand here at our plant for re-export to UAE.. I don't understand why our Halal Certifier would not honor another country's Halal Certification? Thank you. - Bhasker Raghav
  • Hi

    Our organization is not in Meat Halal certification and we do not consider Halal meat sold in Costco from Australia/New Zeeland as Halal because if the vacuume break down the Halal meat is exposed to cross contamination with pork intheir meat palnt or store shop.

    Every country has rules and regulations about accepting the Halal certificate from foreign countries. UAE accept meat from those Halal certifiers who are approved by them.

  • Assalamu Alaykum brother. May Allah bless you abundantly for your efforts. My question is, does zabihah in the USA mean that the meat is hand slaughtered and unstunned? In the UK there is one main certifying agency (HMA). In the US, how can we know if meat is unstunned and hand slaughtered? If a product has hand slaughtered zabiha label, does this mean it is unstunned? Thank you. - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    It does not mean that meat is hand slaughtered in USA. Many so called Zabiha Halal chicken are machine slaughtered in USA. Some turkey are also machine slaughtered But Beef, goat and lamb are hand slaughtered in USA. There very few companies who slaughtered their chicken and turkey by hand.

And they gave a list of the Hershey\'s products that are Halal. So does this mean we cannot eat the Reese\'s Peanut Butter Cups and Nutrageous Bar etc.? جزاك الله خير - Ammaarah
  • AOA

    When Hershey satreted talking about Halal status. They do not know nothing about what is Halal means. The customers servic epeople are not technical people so do not trust them. Are you talking about list of Halal or Kosher because not all kosher certified products are considered Halal except those who meet Halal requirements.

    Just write Hershey under the search and click Food Product by brand name then click Show only Halal. You get a list of Halal Hershey product then consume those Hershey products.

Unfortunately, I came across the following URL: http://www.garnier.com.au/_en/_au/programmes/faq/answer.aspx?tpcode=PROGRAMMES%5EFAQ%5EDEODORANTS%5EDEODORANTS_T2%5EDEODORANTS_T2_Q21.

When I use any alcohol-free product, I do that as it doesn't contain any alcohol, even if minimal. This makes me have doubts in all other alcohol-free products from other companies. How can I find products that don't contain alcohol, even if minimal? - Anonymous user
  • AOA

  • what is your opinion about Sushi products and is the sorbitol used in some sushi products as an ingredient makes it haram or is halal? - sowaiba
  • AOA

    I do not recommend the Sushi product if they are uncooked and if they contain alcohol. Alcohol is frequiently used in Sushi products. Islam does not allow to eat raw foods except fruits and vegetable.

    But Sorbitol is a Halal ingredient.

  • salam.. I want to know either fish stick from Gortons brand halal or haram? I cannot find the information about it from your website. There is a kosher symbol on the package.. thank you... - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    The only grilled or broiled fish are Halal of Gordon brand because all fried fish such as fish sticks are fried in the same vegetable oil and fryers where beer battered fish fried and beer contaminate all fries fish:

    Alert Title Description Date
    Please do not consumed fried fish or fried potatoes if the company or sea food restaurants makes the Beer Battered fried products

    Many food companies and restaurants manufacture or serve beer battered fried fish or potatoes products in USA, Canada and Europe.

    They use same fryers and same vegetable oil to fry both beer battered fish or potatoes and non beer battered fish or potatoes products.

    In seafood restaurants if you see beer battered under menu then please do not order any fried fish such as Red Lobster and other sea food restaurants.

    Similarly frozen fried fish and frozen fried potato brands such as Gorton, Van De Kemps, McCain, Or-Ida make frozen beer battered fried fish and fried potato. So non beer battered frozen are contaminated with beer because beer cannot be removed from frying vegetable oil. The oil is recycled to remove only large and small particles of  products left over in the oil. So all their non beer battered fried are contaminated with beer in the batter.

    The grilled or broiled frozen fish or potato products are not contaminated with beer. But make sure those products are Halal. A list of Halal frozen broiled or grilled frozen fish and potatoes are listed on our website.

  • Now why would you put on my mind that the (knee) brace may have pig fat in its inside coating? And if it does, is it really neccessary to avoid it, since my knee NEEDS some kind of therapetic device? My knee doesn't have a mouth,it's not eating the thing. Secondly,to avoid the whole pharmacy/haram thing, I went to Shop Rite and bought an ACE "knitted knee-brace with side stabilizers". I don't see anything on the box about any "coating". Says its made out of rubber, nylon,cotton,spandex and polyester. Are these really the pedantic details and rules Muslims need to know to shop? The Quran says "Allah desires ease for us, not difficulty". How in the world does having to know the minutia,of where an ingredient thats in an ingredient comes from, fit into Allah desiring ease for us and not difficulty? And don't you think that the burden of having to know insignificant details, like, the source of coating in a knee-brace will eventually overshadow and dull ones desire to learn and be enlightened? I've told you this before, and I'll say it again, this kind of technical extremism leads to scrupulosity. I truly am sorry I ever found this site. Because now, these things are in my head and it makes life/shopping more complicated than it has to be. Spirituality and the knowledge of God is not supposed to make one feel like this. Where's the comfort in not knowing if God is satisfied with you, because the L-cysteine that's in your bread may be from China and not Germany? When I set out for God, this was NOT what I had in mind. But this is where I'm stuck, because these suggestions are in my head, now and I have no one to rely on for consultation, other than myself. For the record, in my other query to you, I wasn't mocking you when I put "have no information" in quotes the way I did. - OpenEyes

  • Don't all vinegars contain very low levels of alcohol naturally? And if so, why is that red wine vinegar is deemed unlawful because the percentage of alcohol is higher than other vinegars. What I mean to say is, at what concentration do you draw the line and how do you define a vinegar that is "halal"...It is all very confusing - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    The difference is that the wine vinegar is not made with one ingredient such as alcohol in case of other ingredients. Wine is made of 12% alcohol and rest is water,  flavor, color and other ingredients due to fermentation of sugar. All componenets even water in wine are considered Halal. Only alcohol of the wine is changed to acetic acid and water where as all Haram ingredients of wine remained as is in wine vinegar. Also some little amount whole wine remainde in the wine vinegar. 

    All vinegar made with single raw mater such as alcohol is subject to Tabdeele Mahiya means change of one state to another. Majority of alcohol converted to acetic acid and water and remaining minute amount of alcohol is part of process either natural process to make vinegar or by manuacturer. According to our Mufti Saheb that when a Haram thing change to Halal then whatever components of that Halal thing are also consider Halal such acetic acid, water, minor amount of left over alcohol. The changes occurs in the alcohol either by Natuarl or commercial process of viengar involves living microorganism which is controlled by nature and human has no rule in it. Similarly ripe fruit also contains very littel amount of alcohol but production this alcohol is by nature which involves biochemical reactions controlled by nature not human being.

    The alcohol in wine is associated or biochemical with other components of wine. This alcohol is not free as other 100% alcohol used to make vinegar. So might see moer alcohol remained in wine vinegar compare to non wine vinegar.

  • Vanillin is used without alcohol, but does that mean when vanillin is present as an ingredient/flavor in any food, that it cannot be on a alcohol carrier? What I meany to say is, that can\'t ethanol be used as a carrier later on in the production of a food, even though originally the vanillin itself was free of alcohol? for instance many foods contain named ingredients and maybe only 2 flavors both of which are named. Does naming the individual flavors on the ingredient list mean that alcohol carriers were not used? I assumed that only when the ingredients lists \"artifical flavorings\" or \"flavorings\" or \"natural flavorings\" etc would I need to ask if they add alcohol in any way to the flavors, and that if the actual flavor is named - such as vanillin then there is no way that they would have used na alcohol carrier etc - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Vanillin is available to food manufacturer as a powder with dextros or maltodextrin as carrier or even pure vanillin so there is no alcohol is involved. Vanillin does not need alcohol carrier. Pure vanillin or vaniilin with carrier is mixed with sugar or all dry ingredients before it mixes with wet ingredients to make any food product. Food products containing only vanillin are Halal. There are many food products which contains vanillin and natural or artificial flavor. If natural or artificial flavor is made with alcohol then that product is not considered as Halal.  If a food product is made with vanillin only it does not require any other flavor because amount of vanillin and contribution of flavor from other non alcohol ingredients will enough to satisfied its flavor requirement to sell that food product.

  • Dear brother, Assalam o alaikum, I wanted to know whether behenyl alcohol and phenoxyethanol are halal ingredients or not. Also would appreciate if you can share any information whether shiseido products and their shampoos are safe to be used by muslims. I approached the company to inquire whether their products contain any animals ingredients and ethyl alcohol. They replied that their products do not contain animals ingredients and ethyl alcohol. However, their products contain other types of alcohol like behenyl alcohol and phenoxyethanol. Appreciate if you can clarify its halal status. Request your earnest response. Jazak Allah - Ambreen
  • AOA

     Phenoxyethanol is a Halal ingredient but behenyl alcohol is a mushbooh ingredient. It is not alcohol but a fat which could be from pork. Only manufacturer knows the source of it. If they say animal by product then it means the behenyl alcohol is made from soy fat or vegetable fat. So you can use it.
