  • Asslamu Alaikum, We have been going Shatila bakery, Dearborn, MI, and was expecting all food products and ice cream are halal, but recenly I checked Ingredient labels of an Ice Cream box and noticed it has mono diglycerides, which has source of animal fat (swine, beef). Today, I went there and spoke with their Sales Rep, and it seems they have no clue nor any direction where I could some clarification. Would you please able to clarify whether Shatila bakery are using Halal ingredient and what is the source of mono diglycerides? Regards, Syed 734 233 8900, - Syed Muzammil Raza
  • AOA

    I used to live in Detroit area for 10 years but never heard about them. If this bakery do not supply Kosher certified bakery and Ice cream then they are not Halal. It seems this is local store. Mono & Diglycerides are Halal when it the product they containing are kosher certified if not then they could be from pork. Beside them, you have to see they should not contain Carrageenan because ethyl alcohol can be used in its processing and there should be no alcohol in flavor of bakery and ice cream.

  • AOA

    The no animal by-product does not mean Halal because it does not cover the Haram hidden ingredients. The thing to ask whether all your bakery products are kosher certified in all stores in USA or with some regional stores because different regions get their bakery products from bakeries in that region which do not true in other region. Second question about alcohol is not true because she looks at the ingredients list and find no alcohol then said we do not use alcohol in our bakery product. The best way to ask alcohol question in flavor of Costco bakery products is this:

     

     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".

     

    The bottom line the above e-mailsfrom costco does not make their bakery products Halal because they have to be Kosher certified in order to protect Muslim consumer from adding Haram Hidden ingredients. Also even those kosher certified bakery are not Halal if they conatin the following ingredients:

    The Kosher Certified food products are not considered Halal if they contain one of the following ingredient (based on MCG Halal criteria):

    }  (1) Gelatin (2) Kosher Gelatin (3) L-Cysteine made from human hair or chicken or duck feathers (4) Wine (5) Liquor (6) Beer batter (7) Rum flavor (8) Ethyl Alcohol or ethanol as a main ingredient (9) Cochineal or Carmine (10) Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce (11) Brewer’s Yeast Extract from byproduct of beer making  (12) Nucleotides (13) Vanilla Extract (14) Wine Vinegar (15) If ethyl alcohol is used as a solvent in natural and artificial flavors (16) Confectionary Glaze or Resinous Glaze (17) Torula Yeast grown on alcohol (18) if Carrageenan is made with ethyl alcohol.

     

    So ingredients list of fresh bakery products is must and without it we can not say they are Halal.

  • AOA

    Thanks again for good information for MCG and also other Muslims, they are kosher certified but with few problems, such as the fully loaded Baked Potato is not Halal because it is made with yeast extract which is obtained from brewer yeast a by product of beer. So I have to reserach ingredients of each product then if they are Halal then Inshallah I will publish on our website. I think you should abou alcohol in flavor except Smoke flavor which is Halal the following way:

  • 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.

JazakAllah khair - Omar
  • AOA

    The mono & Diglycerides are made from from soy fat whenever there is any kosher symbol on it. They do not have kosher symbol on beef fat because the kosher slaughtered beef is for retail consumption not for industrial. Canada's orthodox kosher symbols are COR, MK and others.

  • AOA

    Does Dr. Salah has education in food science or work experience in food industry if the answer is no then he does not know FDA standard for Vanilla Extract which says Vanilla Extract can not be call Vanilla Extract unless it contains minimum of 35% alcohol. Sound Fiqah opion does not work unless it has a food scientist background. Ask him to provide any Hadith which says Intoxicants are Halal in even in very small minute amount because alcohol in vanilla extract and natural vanilla flavor is a intoxicant and all intoxicants are Haram. Only CO2 extraction of vanilla flavor is Halal and it is available in other part of world nut in USA because it costs $1000 per pound compare to alcohol extracted vanilla flavor which costs $ 100 a pound.

  • Asalamu alicom, I hope this finds you in the best of health. I am living in Malta and I am the President of the Islamic community of Malta,was asked my our Imam to accompany him for a visit of one of the leading bread industries here in Malta.The factory were ready to go Halal. They want us to certify their products as Halal. I asked them to first send me by mail their ingredients used in the production of bread and pastery and then if all ok, We would then visit there line of process for the production to ensure that the process is running without contamination. I have been checking your website and other sites regarding the halal list and it was of great help, but I have several questions 1. Are poppy seeds halal 2. What is the point of view of the scholars in regards of the hadith of the prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H) in the case of Rennet. jazzakumu allahu kheiran - Mourad Suleiman
  • AOA

    There are many issue beside the ingredients such lubricant used on the oven band to protect baked products such as cookies sticking to band oven. The lubricant should be from vegetable fat. If they use pork by products on the same bakery such pork fat based emulsifiers and dough conditioners the Halal certification can not be done. Poppy seeds Halal according to many Ulema but Saudi Ulema has problem with it and they are banned in Saudi Arabia. If microbial rennet available in Malta then there is no need to used non zabiha beef rennet. Our Ulema in USA do not consider non zabiha beef meat in supermarkets. But if there is no Halal rennet (microbial rennet) then you have to talk to some other ulema.

    Halal certification of bakery is not easy, you need the help of Bakery scientist and his experience in working in bakery plants.
