  • aSalam-u-alaikum, How would you respond to someone who claims that you can not trust Kosher symbols because they claim that some Rabi would just read a prayer over the food of manufacturing company and it would be certified as Kosher. JazakAllah Khair - Usman
  • AOA

    You are friend's statment is not true because Rabbi read prayer when they are slaughtering animals. They do not read prayer on non meat kosher certified products. They checked every declared ingredient on the label and also check hidden ingredients used during processing to see they meet kosher requirements. Believe me, I was always with every Rabbi who used to come to the food plants for kosher inspection where I used to work since very long. I was with Rabbi when he came to kosherized baking ovens for Nabosco Oreo Brownie, Chips a way and Snackwell brownies by running the oven above 800 degree F for many hours. This was the kosherized new baking ovens. I was Kosher Coordinator for Nabisco St.Elmo, IL plant

  • Is beanboozled contain any gelatin or pork becuz I really wanna try it but I'm afraid if it's pork and is the dog food actually dog food becuz I can't eat that either or is it artificial flavor may u please tell me the truth - Isra
  • AOA

    From our ALERT SECTION:

    Gelatin in any food product or ingredient or Vitamins or medicine is not Halal unless it says Fish Gelatin under ingredients statement in USA and Canada

    MCG is receiving many inquiries about gelatin foods or ingredients or in vitamins whether it is Halal or not.

    The important point is none of the gelatin carrying food products or ingredients or vitamins are Halal unless it says fish gelatin under ingredients statement. The use of fish gelatin in foods in USA is on rise because of demand by Muslim consumers and Jewish consumers. Food companies have booths at IFT Food Expo in July 2013 in Chicago promoting use of fish gelatin. It is important to know the fish gelatin from cat fish is not consider Halal or Kosher. Beta Carotene suppliers use fish gelatin as  a processing aid ingredient or hidden ingredient in Beta Carotene powder form so that it mixes well with other ingredients and fish gelatin is not mentioned under ingredients list.

  • I hv bought chinese chillie paste. ..in dt all ingredientes r halal nd also vegetarian...bt it hs used flavour E621. .is it halal - shafeer
  • AOA

    I have no information. Regarding E Number 621:

    unknown E621 Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) Miscellaneous - Flavour Enhancers. Suitable for vegetarian label on the package indicates the source of Monosodium Glutamate is from vegetable protein or it has to be under Halal or kosher certification. In USA/Canada it is kosher certified and meet the Halal requirements. Monosodium Glutamate can also be obtained from yeast. But if yeast is grown on pork media then it is Haram. It happened in Indonesia few years back when Monosodium Glutamate is produced using pork fat media to grow yeast by Ajinomonto Indonesia. As it was reported on our website.

  • As'salamu Alaikum, Please let me now if the following soap is halal: Organic Coconut Oil*, Organic Palm Oil*, Sodium Hydroxide**, Water, Lavandin Extract, Organic Olive Oil*, Organic fairDeal Hemp Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Lavender Extract, Sea Salt, Citric Acid, Tocopherol. This is what the manufacturer said when I asked them the following questions. "Hi there, I'm interested in your products.. I have some questions though.. 1. do you guys use an alcoholic solvent in extracting tocopherol? - and for scented castille soap, do you guys use an alcoholic solvent in extracting lavender extract.. Or in a grape seed oil extract? Thanks for writing and for your interest in our products. We do not use alcohol in the extraction of any of our ingredients. This is not allowed under the standards of organic certification. These ingredients are extracted either by pressing or by steam distillation. 2. Is this also the case with them being animal free such as beef and pork? Or any other animal? All of our products are free of beef and pork ingredients. In fact, the only non-vegan ingredient used in any of our product line is the beeswax that is in our lip and body balms, and even that is certifiably sustainably harvested to ensure the survival of the colony. All the best, Lisa Bronner" I'm not sure about hemp oil.. Is this the plant you mentioned that it causes intoxication? So after reviewing my my mail.. Is this a halal soap? Or no. Regards. - anonymous

    Grapeseed is not a Halal ingredient because it is by product of wine making. This is not a Halal soap.

  • is whey powder haram or halal - hamna noreen
  • AOA

    Whey and its Halal Status:

    Muslims think that if whey is a milk based ingredient then it has to be Halal, but this is not true. There are two kinds of whey, one is sweet or rennet whey and the other is acid whey. Acid whey is obtained during the making of acid type of cheese such as cottage cheese. Sweet or rennet whey is used more in food products then acid whey. Sweet whey or rennet whey is a by-product of rennet cheese  such as cheddar cheese or Mozzarella cheese. Whey is a portion of milk remaining after coagulation and removal of curd. Whey is Halal only if the Halal starter culture bacteria, Halal medium on which starter culture bacteria are grown (Starter culture bacteria are Halal if they are obtained from milk source not meat source), and media on which these starter culture bacteria are grown. These requirements can only obtained if the cheese and whey are Halal or Kosher certified (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements). A Halal or Kosher symbol (which meet the Islamic dietary requirements) appears on a food package containing whey indicating that it is manufactured under Halal or Kosher supervision.
