  • 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. Rasheed Ahmed, I am so sorry,but my English isn't enough to understand these paragraphs.Could you say me that,can I eat Hersey chocolate and use their syrup? - Halide

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.

    Danon's Danactive, Danonino are not Halal either made with Kosher gelatin is mostly made from pork or the above products are made on same line and have crosscontamination with pork based kosher gelatin. Yogurt with K symbols are not Halal. Only Danon Low Fat plain yogurt and Non Fat plain yogurt are Halal which has OU kosher symbol. All fruit yogurts with OU kosher symbol are made with alcohol containing flavor and are not Halal. So you have to use plain yogurt only and add canned fruits or jam or jelly to taste good.
