  • Aoa I have a general question, I wNt to ask that we prepare fruit custard or trifle at home with milk sugar custrad,,,,and place a layer of fruits in custard... But after 2,3 days there is liquid appear in custrad ...i wAnt to know that is this custard in which fruits remain in sugar for 3 days and also leaves some water as it gets older....halal to eat. Jo custard main fruits hotay hain or sugar bhi tou kia alcoholic fementation hojate hay...or 2,3 din bad fridge main rakh ker os custrd ko kha saktay hain? - Sana
  • AOA

    The water is leached out of fruits because fruits are made of 70-80% water. The custard is also liquified. Alcohol is only developed if your fruit custard is infected with yeast. Since there is no yeast in fruits and in custard. I do not know Jo Custard but I recommend to use Pakistani made Rafhan Vanilla custard which is made with artificial vanilla probably vanillin and has Halal sign. Please do use use left over custard more than two days because opening  and closing refrigerator increase the inside temp.

  • How is a soap or shampoo, etc which is made out of pork or non-zabiha meet considered haram even though it has gone through such a change which completely changes its nature? - Imran
  • AOA

    From our Fiqah & Science subsection:

     

    Bar Soap

    PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL CHANGES (TABDEELE MAHIYA) DURING THE PROCESSING OF PORK GELATIN AND BAR SOAPS MADE FROM PIG FAT

    There is lot of discussion among Muslims living in western countries about physical and chemical changes of Haram raw materials during the manufacturing of food products, such as Type A gelatin from pig source, or emulsifiers such as Mono & Diglycerides from pork fat and personal care items such as bar soaps made from pork fat or glycerin. Several Muslims are quoting Fatwa?s (Fatwa is a legal statement in Islam, issued by a Mufti or a religious lawyer, on a specific issue) which were issued 50-60 years back, to justify to consume or use them due to physical and chemical changes occur during their processing.

    There is no doubt about the following physical and chemical changes or Tabdeele Mahiya of Haram raw material to Halal products. This includes production of vinegar from alcohol, falling of pig in a salt mine and becoming part of salt mine, bone ash, tanning of dead animal skin. These Tabdeele Mahiya cases are acceptable to majority of Islamic scholars.

    But few things such as vinegar from wine, pig gelatin, bar soaps made with pork fat are not acceptable according to scientific facts and opinions of several Islamic scholars. Since some of the fatwa?s are issued 50-60 years back, it seems that no assistance from Muslim scientists was used to check it out scientifically.

    Requirements for Tabdeele mahiya are (1) complete change from originality to new things which are not present in the original material (2) change in the name (3) Complete conversion of basic components of a raw material to a complete new product containing new components and several others. The common understanding about change in the original status is that it should not contain original components. Some Islamic scholars do not pay attention to this fact and consider that any chemical changes or reactions result in a new composition, which is not true. Let us discuss this in detail:

    Bar soap from Pig fat and other fat based ingredients:

    Bar soaps are made from animal fat or vegetable oils or their fatty acids by reacting them with inorganic water-soluble alkali salt or bases. The source of fat is mutton or beef tallow or pork fat but glycerin is also added besides stearic acid (fat based).

    The animal fat or vegetable oil is made of distinctive mixture of several different triglycerides. A triglyceride molecule consists of one molecule of glycerin to which three fatty acid molecules are attached, and these fatty acids are specific to different type of triglycerides. Fatty acids are the basic components of any fat. During manufacturing of bar soaps, fats or oil are heated with liquid alkali, such as sodium hydroxide or caustic soda or potassium hydroxide or caustic potash to yield neat soap, water and glycerin. This process is known as saponification of fat or oil. During this process, the basic components fatty acids are transferred without change in its composition from triglyceride to alkali making neat soap (combination of alkali and fatty acid). Neutralization with alkali is also used to produce neat soap. The neat soap is dried and made into pellets, then glycerin and other ingredients are added, and then mixture is extruded to make bar soaps. If the bar soap is made from pork fat then nothing happens to its basic components fatty acids, it remains as it is, same as in pork fat. So bar soap manufacturing process is not the example of Tabdeele Mahiya. The emulsifiers and mono and diglycerides also fall under this category.

    On the other hand in manufacturing of distilled white vinegar, dilute ethyl alcohol is converted to acetic acid, water, and a very minute amount of unconverted dilute ethyl alcohol. Tabdeele Maheyia applies here in the case of dilute ethyl alcohol, which is converted to new material acetic acid and water by acetobacter bacteria. The name is changed from dilute ethyl alcohol to vinegar. Distilled white vinegar is Halal but raw material ethyl alcohol is not Halal.

    In the case of wine vinegar, the table wine contains 12.2% ethyl alcohol by volume or 9.9% by weight, 85% water, 4% carbohydrate, 0.1% protein and volatile wine flavoring compounds. In wine, only alcohol is subjected for change by acetobacter bacteria to acetic acid and water. So wine vinegar contains acetic acid, water and rest of the above thing, unconverted small amount of wine and wine flavors which are the result of wine making. Imam Shaafi RA does not consider it as Halal. Presence of unconverted wine, wine flavoring compounds are the scientific basis for its not being consider as Halal.

    Liquid raw materials are best suitable for Tabdeele Mahiya compare to solids. So it is very important to use scientific facts in deciding the Tabdeele Mahiya of Haram raw materials for the processing of food products, food ingredients and personal care items.

  • Assalaamu'Alaikum... Alhamdulillaah.. I pray to Allah subhaanahu wa ta'aalaa that he blesses the team behind MCG... Lately i have started to build my body since i was a little overweight.. i realised the importance of supplements... This is my little research...(May Allah forgive me) 1) For fish oil/Omega 3, i zeroed in on Omegavia-pharmaceutical grade. (http://www.omegavia.com/the-omegavia-difference/) kindly click on the "view the ingredients" on the middle right hand side on the webpage wherein the product label can be viewed and if we observe on the bottom left hand corner of the product label it says "Kosher and Halal certified", Kindly let me know if this product is Halal. 2)For the multi-vitamins, i zeroed in on Solgar Iron-Free Formula VM-75® Tablets, since i dont need to take iron as a supplement. i understand and i did notice that on your homepage you have mentioned Solgar's Formula V VM 75 Multivitamins with chelated mineral Veg Cap, but since it has iron in it i chose Solgar Iron-Free Formula VM-75® Tablets. i observed that both are KOF-Kosher 1250. Kindly let me know if this is Halal. 3)Kindly let me know or suggest me a good halal Tonalin CLA...(i think it stands for Conjugated Linoleic Acid). 4)Kindly let me know or suggest me a good halal Raspberry Ketone product.. 5)i went through the difference of opinion(which is welcome in Islam) about the Ifanca's halal certification you had with regards to the ultimate nutrition Prostar 100% whey protein natural flavour. i would like to know your opinion on the halal status of these products which intrigued me ..(http://www.optimumnutrition.com/products/natural-products-c-11.html) .. a)Optimum Nutrition's Natural 100% Whey Gold standard Protein. b)Optimum Nutrition's Natural 100% Casein. c)Optimum Nutrition's 100% Oats and Whey. Kindly notify me by email also... Jazaakallaah Khairan... Thanking You Sincerely, Regards.. - Mfk
  • AOA

    We do not accept IFANCA Halal Certification because their criteria include alcohol as Halal and do not what other Haram ingredients they accept as Halal. To us alcohol is Haram. So I will not recommend any IFANCA certified food products or vitamins.Solgar Kosher Formula VM-75 Iron Free Multiple Vitamins with Chelated Minerals 180 Tablets are Halal.

     

    You should not buy Omegavia fish oil because it is made with kosher gelatin, the glaze they used is made of shellack dissolved in alcohol  and I run Halal under search, it shows no results.

    Please buy

    Nutri-Supreme Research Kosher CLA from www.koshervitamins.com

    Please buy

    Bio Nutrition Raspberry Ketone Diet Vegetarian Suitable Not Certified Kosher 60 Vegetarian Capsules

    from www.koshervitamins.com because no kosher availble. If Optimum nutrition products are certified by IFANCA then I do not recommend them.

     

    Ingredients

    Pharmaceutical Grade Fish Oil (from Alaskan Whiting and Pollock), Kosher gelatin, glycerin, plant-derived natural food glaze (enteric coating to improve absorption and prevent burps), Natural tocopherols (3 IU of soy-derived Vitamin E for freshness).

  • Hershey's E-Mail regarding alcohol used as a processing aid confusing Muslim consumers MCG wrote this e-mail to clarify their statement regarding alcohol and the consumer department told MCG that they will look and get back to MCG: Hi Mr. MCguire, Nice to talk to on the phone. The e-mail below is causing lot of confusion among our 8-10 million Muslim consumers who do not consume any food product made with ethyl alcohol. To me the e-mail is missing the "in flavors" after processing agent. Because ethyl alcohol alone never used as a processing aid or hidden ingredient in chocolate and it has no technical effect during processing. If you correct the e-mail this way then our consumer will not have any confusion: " Thank you for contacting Hershey All the products you mentioned contain vanillin. Our vanillin does not contain alcohol. Alcohol is used as a processing agent in flavors and is removed. Have a sweet day, Susan Harris Consumer Representative" Please forward this suggestion to your QA or Technical or legal department.

  • Is Lindt chocolate products considered halal or not as I received this email from Lindt: Butterfat is usually not produced with enzymes, it is evaporated butter. Nevertheless, a part of the butter might be whey butter, and in the production process from milk to whey butter, enzymes could have been involved (for example for the cheese production). Our actual raw material information does not contain the information whether enzymes could have been involved during the whole process from milk to butterfat. Our chocolate Lindt Dark Mousse does not contain flavours based on alcohol. - Anonymous user

    If they do not have kosher symbol and alcohol is used in flavor then they are not Halal.

  • saalam, First of all i would like to thank you beause your website is SO helpful, may Allah bless you. 2nd there is a website called noorvitamins.com. I would like to ask you if it is indeed halal thanks - hasan
  • AOA

    I would not recommend it because some vitamins are made with Halal gelatin and there is no Halal gelatin is available. Some Muslims consider non zabiha beef gelatin as Halal which is not accepted by every Muslim including MCG's ulema. If it was written fish gelatin then it will be Halal but they did not mentioned it.

  • Salam Alaikum. While I was at Tim Hortons, I've noticed a Kosher symbol on their hot chocolate beverages that are sold in big cylindrical containers. They usually display them openly at the cafe inside shelves and stuff where customers eat their food. So I was wondering whether hot chocolate is halal to consume considering it has the K-sign? Thanks. - Rawi
  • AOA

    If it has flavor in it then itis is made with alcohol and it is not Halal.
