  • Assalamu alaykum InshaAllah you can help me. I would like to know if inactive brewers yeast is halal. I read on your website that brewers yeast contaminated with alcohol is haram. I'm not sure about the inactive brewers yeast. It is a listed ingredient in a protein supplement. Jazak Allahu khaira Wassalam alaykum Sr sohret - Sohret Hussein
  • AOA

    Inactive yeast means it can not perform any activity because most consist of dead yeast cells for both bkare yeast and brewer yeast. Inactive Baker Yeast is Halal but Brewer inactive is not Halal because it is ether obtainedfrom by-product of beer making or grown on alcohol.It is most probably from beer because it is cheap. You always investigate any yeast ingredient in many vitamins or protein supplements.

  • Assalammua\'laikum is microbial rennet halal.?\'Cause, a source says that it\'s suitable for vegetarians since it comes from fungi or bacteria. However, another source says that it has undergone genetic modification and only a gene is extracted from the cows. Isn't the second source kind of contradicting the first one? - Nana
  • AOA

    In USA, microbial rennet is mostly made from yeast cells and it is Halal in USA and Canada. Halal or Kosher symbol is a must for the Halal status of cheeses. No hlal or Kosher certifying organizations accept microbial rennet obtained from genes of non zabiha or non kosher cow.

Thank u waiting for the answers. - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Surfactants are low surface tension compound. Ionic means the surfatcant give a net negative charge and cation means it will give a net postive charge. They can be made with fatty acid which is a fat so it is Halal only if it obtained from vegetable fat but they are made with chemicals then they are Halal. The source of above surfactants is known only to the manuafacturer so they can answer your questions. Perfumes are mostly made with alcohol carrier. Where in case of bar soap and detergent dish washing liquid these perfumes are washawy, so it is not a problem. Liquid colors are also made with pork glycerin so manufacturer can answer this question. All other chemical ingredients are Halal.

  • What is the Land O Lakes low-fat yogurt gelatin source for all flavors? - Osman B. Dungal
  • AOA

    Any yogurt with gelatin or kosher gelatin is not Halal. Please do not buy it. From our FAQ on website:

     

    Is Kosher Gelatin Halal

    No, Kosher gelatin is not Halal because it is made either from pork or non zabiha beef and therefore kosher gelatin from pork is Haram. A liberal kosher symbol K appears on yogurts containing kosher gelatin because some Rabbis consider kosher gelatin from pork as kosher.

    Is Gelatin Halal

    Gelatin is Halal only if it is made from fish bones and skin or if gelatin is made from a zabiha slaughtered cow.

  • QUESTION: Assalam o Alaikum. This is a brother from palistan. I read information about soya sauce on your website. I want to inquire about a soya sauce which says naturally brewed and contains the ingredients Soy Bean, Wheat, Water, Salt, Vinegar, Caramel Color, Sodium Benzoate less than 0.1%. BUT it is certified halal by South African National Halal Authority (SANHA). website: www.sanha.org.za/ . Could you plz guide in this matter whether i should use it or not. The company name is shangrila. - 01-11-13 03:22:10 - Brother
  • Assalam O Alaikum Brother,

    My answer was lost by mistake. Here is the answer for your question:

    Many Halal certifying organizations Halal certify food ingredients or food products containing alcohol but MCG do not Halal certify or assign Halal status to any food ingredient and food products containing alcohol. The naturally Brewed soy sauce contains 2-3% alcohol because it is a alcoholic fermented products such as wine.

    MCG do not recommend to use Shangrila\'s Naturally Brewed Soy sauce.

     What are the ingredients of Haram Soy Sauce:

    The Naturally Brewed Soy is the Haram soy sauce. It is made just like wine containing 2-3% alcohol. The ingredients list contains Wheat, Soy and other ingredients. Food companies do not mention Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce under the ingredients statement. They just mention soy sauce but within parenthesis they write Wheat and Soy. This is the only way to find a Haram Soy Sauce.

    What are the ingredients of Halal Soy Sauce:

    All purpose soy sauce or non naturally brewed soy sauce is a Halal soy sauce made from water, salt, hydrolyzed soy protein, corn syrup and sodium benzoate. La Choy All Purpose Soy sauce is a Halal Soy Sauce.

    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".

  • AOA

    From our Services section and subsection FAQ:

     

    What is Mono and Diglycerides

    Mono and Diglycerides are fat based emulsifier and are made by reacting glycerol (fat based) with fats and oils. Mono and diglycerides can be made from beef, pork, or soybean fat. Only soybean or zabiha slaughtered cow fat based Mono and Diglyceries are Halal. A Halal or Kosher symbol (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements) on a food package containing Mono and Diglycerides indicates that it is obtained from soybean fat.

  • Jzk for your fast reply. In regards to E1520 (Propylene Glycol) I cannot find any info that it is synthesized from pig, however there are many sources pointing that it can be synthesized from glycerine (aka glycerol, which itself can be synthesized from animals). ADM for example synthesizes it from kosher glycerine, while other places synthesize it from petroleum derivatives. Because of this (that it is possible to synthesize it from glycerol) see some halal sites in the UK listing it as questionable. I wanted to resolve the disconnect (if any exist).

  • Dear brother, I've sent you, a couple of days ago, to ask you about the 'scented tissue'. I guess I didn't make myself clear. I meant the not-wet 'tissue paper' scented with, for example, lemon. Does it necessarily contain alcohol in it? If yes, what is the alternative? Almost all "tissue paper" are scented with something (for example, Lemon). One more thing & forgive my ignorance. You say on your website that cosmetics, that have ingredients derived from a plant source, are Halal. But we know that, in farming, pig excreta is used as fertilizer in the US and non-Muslim countries. So my question is: do we still have to worry about the ingredients that come from a plant source? Is it Mashbooh? Thank you and sorry for bothering - Anonymous user

  • I am abstaining from eating anything with alcohol flavouring due to doubts, however most food do not tell you if they have alcohol flavouring instead use the words natural flavouring or flavouring.This has made picking food really hard and this website which helps only compromises a small number of products, which leaves a variety of products sold in tesco and other supermarkets unknown. I initially stopped buying products such as orange juice,sweets, and other things due to fear of alcohol carriers within such products.However majority of muslims I have seen shop without worrying if there is any alcohol carriers.If there is no alcohol blatantly written or no haram meat it is viewn as halal. I would be very happy if I was given advice on what is the criteria I must follow when buying food whether it be essentials or sweets. May Allah reward you for you work and time. - Khalid Abdulle
  • AOA

    I did research in Tesco and Sainsbury in London when I was visiting in 2005 for Halal conference and published the results on our website then after cuople nof years, I pull out becaus eit was getting old. One 100 percent orange juice will not have any alcohol but orange drink which not 100% orange juce contains orange flavor. They add ornage flavor to make up the orange which is added at very low lewel. The rule in UK, is to buy the food products which has a claim " Suitable foe Vegetarian" without flavor or with kosher symbol without flavor. Most bread do not add flavor.

    I am finishing my new book " Food Ingredients and Their Halal Status, it will be very good source for Muslims in UK. Inshallah MCG will be selling this book through Muslim bookstores in USA, Canada, England, India, Pakistan, Australia and other part of the world.

    Sugar Alcohols

     

    Sugar Alcohols

    Sugar alcohols or Polyols are carbohydrates. Many Muslim consumers has asked us about Halal status of sugar alcohols in Questions and Answers section of our website. We answered them in the above section. So we decided to explain about them in News section of our website. The sugar alcohols are made from plant carbohydrates except Lactitol which can be made from sucrose or whey's lactose or milk sugar  and all the sugar alcohols are Halal  except Erythritol and if Lactittol  is made from non Halal whey then it is not Halal. But if Lactitol is made from sucrose then it is Halal. There is no ethyl alcohol present in them. Alcohol is just the name because of chemical formulas. FDA recognized sugar alcohols as GRAS(Generally Recognized As Safe). Sugar alcohols are not artificial sweeteners technically and slightly lower in calories compare to sugar. The most important use of them is in chewing gums, sugar free candiaes and cookies because they do not cause tooth decay and good for diabetes because on consuming them the blood sugar will not increase. The most important sugar alcohols are Sorbitol or Glucitol, Xylitol, Lactitol, Mannitol, Maltitol, Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysates, Isomalt, . No bone char is used in sugar alcohols as compare to sugar. Sugar alcohols are slow fermented carbohydrate than sugar. Sugar alcohols are not fermented by oral bacteria in mouth, this is determind by FDA through McNail company’s research. Sorbitol, Mannitol, Maltitol and Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysates are manufactured from cornstarch. Xylitol is manufactured from corn cobs, sugar cane bagasse, birch wood waste.

    Lactitol is made from sucrose and whey. When Lactitol is manufactured from sweet whey then we have to be very careful about it. Whey has to be Halal or kosher certified otherwise Lactitol will not be Halal if it is manufactured from sweet whey which is obtained from animal rennet whey. Even if it is obtained from acid whey the starter culture bacteria and starter culture media upon the bacteria grow has to be Halal. If a Halal or kosher symbol appears on a food product package containing Lactitol, it means lactitol is either made from sucrose or Halal or kosher certified whey.

    Erythritol is obtined either cornstarch or fruits through alcoholic fermentation because there is no lactic acid ferementation to be Halal. Sugar alcohol Erythritol is not consider Halal.

    Lactitol is considered as Mushbooh and depond upon the Halal or kosher status of rennet whey and acid whey.
