  • Assalamualaikum, I have emailed Ben and Jerrys food company regarding their status of vanilla extract in ice creams. They sent me a list of all products that contain alcohol as flavouring, but some products, such as chocolate fudge brownie was not present on it which contains vanilla extract too. I have emailed them again asking them specifically, but in the meantime will it be considered musbooh to eat ben and jerrys chocolate fudge brownie? GMWA foodguide inidicate alcohol flavoured ben and jerry products on their page, but they said chocolate fudge brownie and a couple of others didnt contain any alcoholic flavouring, even though it contains vanilla extract. Will it be considered musbooh to consume the ice cream? Jazakh Allah Khayr - Tamanna
  • AOA

    Any food product with Vanilla Extract is Haram because Vanilla Extract contains 35% alcohol. Ben & Jerry is not a good brand for ice cream because Coffee Health Crunch Ice Cream which Halal because it made without flavor.

  • can denatured alcohol causes intoxicity...???i asked bcoz i saw in one article as follows::: ""rule of impurity and prohibition to use such perfumes applies when the impure materials do not change during the manufacturing process. If alcohol no longer existed in its original form, but completely changed so as not to cause drunkenness then the resulting perfumes would no longer be considered impure.preponderant opinion is to avoid using such perfumes even if other materials are added to them and one can not drink them. The reason for avoiding perfumes is due to the impurity of the alcohol. as above lines,if denatured alcohol cuases intoxicity but cant drink bcoz of the addition of toxic chemicals,.it wont be permissible naa since it causes intoxicity.... so please anwer me whether denatured alcohol can cause intoxicity..??? - ayaan
  • AOA

    Yes, it is made with methane so it is toxic.

  • aslm alkm...i saw in ur fiqah science..about distilled vinegar...there.at the end of the product, we get acetic acid +water+ a minute amount of dilute ethyl alcohol....and u concluded that distilled white vinegar is halal but its raw material is not halal...what you mean by that....plz give me clear image on that....if small amount of dilute alcohol is present in the vinegar then how come it be halal..?? According to a Hadith small portion of intoxicant is also Haram as large portion. in case of wine vinegar.,since it is not 100% vinegar,it is not considered as halal,right..??? same is the case of distilled vinegar...it is not 100%(as per u,contains minute amount of dilute alcohol in its product)....plz clarify my doubt......may allah reward u for what u r doing for muslims............... fee amaanee allah...... - ayaan
  • AOA

    You have to read sharia books. In which they say a Haram source can change to Halal through Tabdeele Mahiya. According ouer Mufti Mohammed Hafeezur Rahman Khan all the resulting componenets in vinagar are Halal including a very minute amount of alcohol. Then you should not eat fruits and vegetable because alcohol is produced during maturing process from green fruit to ripe fruits and this is natural process. Anthing which naturally produced with minor amount of alcohol is Halal. Vinegar is produced naturally during the days of ourProphet Sayyidina Mohammed Sallallahu Alaihi Wassallum and it contains minor amount of alcohol.

    Vinegar can be made naturally are also by commercial method of innoculating organism to alcohol. Alcohol is 100% alcohol but wine is not 100% alcohol but it conatins other things. The conversion of alcohol to vinegar is close to 1oo% of acetic acids and water but conversion of wine to wine vinegar involed only conversion of alcohol not other components of wine.

    Some important information about eating in restaurants in USA and Canada

    The following important things should be considered while eating in a regular restaurant in USA and Canada. This is for those Muslims who only eat the Zabiha meat. Most of us go to seafood restaurants to eat fish because it is Halal. But we do not have information on how it is cooked or made. Here are the following things we have to keep in our mind about eating fish dish in a restaurant. Not all fish items in fast foods or restaurants are Halal. Not because of fish itself but due to the following reasons: 1. Coating and batter on the fish: Fried fish items are made with coating or batter. The coating or batter of the fish may contain whey, colors and flavors which may not be Halal. Some fish are dipped in beer batter before frying and it is known as beer battered fish. This is type of fish is Haram. The McDonald and Burger King coating is Halal in USA and Canada. 2. Frying media and fryer: Coated and battered fish items are fried in shortening at 360F. If the coating or batter for fried fish is Halal and if it is fried in vegetable shortening with or without vegetable fat based Mono & Diglycerides then the fried fish is Halal. But if same fryer and vegetable shortening was used to fry non zabiha chicken nuggets OR beer battered fish then fried fish items will not be Halal because of left over batter and fat from the chicken. Burger King's Big Fish and Long John Silver are fried their fish items in the same fryer and vegetable shortening use for frying the non-zabiha chicken nuggets in USA and Canada. This is the reason their fish items are not considered Halal. Same thing may happens in restaurants.Beside Burger King also fried pork patties in the same vegetable oil. So it is necessary to avoid eating fried fish in a restaurants because you do not know the Halal status of the coating and batter and use of vegetable shortening and where they fried. 3.Broiled or Grilled Fish: If the fish is broiled or grilled with cooking wine then it will not be Halal. If the fish is broiled or grilled with AA butter then it will be Halal. Sometimes spices are also added to it, we have to make sure that they used 100% spices not the seasoning because seasoning may contain whey, color and flavors which may not be Halal. 4. Sauce with Broiled or Grilled fish: Most of the time broiled fish or grilled fish comes to the table with different sauces on the top of the fish. Dill Sauce with broiled or grilled Salmon is an example. Dill sauce, Tartar sauce and other sauces contain dairy ingredients which may not be Halal. So you have to avoid it and use salt, pepper, lemon or A1 sauce which is a Halal sauce. 5. Broiled Vegetable: Sometimes bacon or ham is added to vegetables, so ask about them. 6. Rolls/Bread: Rolls/bread and cheese rolls are provided at tables, these rolls and bread are mostly made from frozen dough or mixes. These frozen dough or mixes are made with dough conditioners which may not be Halal. Cheese may be made with animal enzymes. 7. Garden Salad, Salad Dressing and coleslaw: Garden Salad in most of the restaurants comes with croutons, cheese, Chinese noodles, and bacon bits.

It also veggie written on the package. May be it is for export but if could not find it then do not consume it. There is no such satement that Maggi Noodles are made with porcine enzyme at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maggi_noodles.You have to remember that all enzymes used in bakery products are Halal. Noodles does not need any enzyme but if the seasoning contain cheese then there is a possibility of porcine enzyme.

I sent this company an email and this is what they replied to me : When producing our decorative products we do not use any ingredients directly derived from animals, such as placenta extracts or animal fat. We do, however, use materials such as beeswax, silk, or lanolin (wool fat from sheep) and the natural dye cochenille (CI 75470) which are indeed animal components, strictly speaking. When manufacturing some types of ingredients we also use base components such as fatty acids at times, which may also be derived from animals. However, this does not make any of our ingredients questionable in the least. A careful process of filtration consisting of many different and diverse steps throughout the synthesis of our products guarantees that all of our products can be used without any objections. Needless to say, due to the nature and origin of our products‘ components we do not consider our products „vegan.“ - Nazurah

  • Salam. Pls advice the difference of using vanillin powder to replace cream of tartar for making meringue in recipe. Will it change in texture or flavor of the end result? TQ - Ann NH
  • AOA

    Both provides different effect on meringue. Vanillin provides only flavor and Cream of Tartar provide acidity for shelf life. Both has to be use in meringue. You can replace each with diffrerent ingredients which provides the same effects.

    Ethanol is Haram so you can use it in fragrance.
