  • AOA

    Not all Kosher symbol carrying food products are not Halal because they did not meet Halal requirements. The one who meet the Halal requirements are Halal. Cheddar cheese with kosher symbol is Halal because alcohol is not used in cheese. From our Home page:

    NOT ALL KOSHER CERTIFIED FOOD PRODUCTS ARE HALAL, ONLY THOSE MEET HALAL REQUIREMENTS ARE HALAL

    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, (19) Natural Vanilla or Natural Vanilla Flavor (because Alcohol is used in extraction)

  • what is the source of gelatin in REACTINE® Liquid Gels - Dalia
  • AOA

    It does not matter the source of gelatin any medicine or food made with gelatin is Not Halal. It could be Haram if pork gelatin is used and not Halal if non zabiha beef is used.

    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.

  • Salam. I bought a bag of Dare Candy Co’s REALFRUIT Gummies (Tropical) today. I always check the ingredients of all the candy I buy to ensure that it does not contain gelatin. However, today when I bought it, I somehow missed seeing gelatin in the ingredients and only just noticed it when I got home. I noticed two key ingredients in the gummies — gelatin and pectin. I am aware that pectin is halal as it is gelatin from fruit or jam, but certain gelatin is usually obtained from cows or pigs. In the bag of REALFRUIT Gummies (Tropical) from Dare Candy Co, it only said “gelatin”, not "beef gelatin", so I don’t know where the gelatin came from. I tried to search it, but I did not come across any useful information. Although I did see something interesting; I found an article that said that Dare Candy Co would be releasing (it is an old article, it is already released) a new gummy candy that is gelatin free so that it is suitable for vegetarians. With this information in mind, I believe that they decided to make this new type of gummy candy because their original gummy candies contained gelatin from animals. However, vegetarians do not eat any form of meat, so the gelatin could still very well be from beef. I would appreciate it if you could please clarify where the gelatin comes from in Dare Candy Co’s REALFRUIT Gummies, specifically the Tropical kind if its type is of any use. Thank you. - R.
  • AOA

    It is not Halal. Please stay away from "Gummies" because it is always made with gelatin.

Plus I was upset to learn that I had been eating haram bread all this time! Regards, S. Khan - S. Khan

  • Assalamualaikum wr wb -- I read on your website that Tim Hortons is not halal except for their 100% Arabian Coffee & Tea. I have contacted Tim Hortons myself and asked them in very detail about their ingredients and their source of ingredients. They have provided me with a list of products which contain no alcohol and have sent me a list of ingredients each product contains. From the information they sent me, a lot of things don't have alcohol. Their source of mono diglycerides is vegetable and their L-Cysteine is from a synthetic source. Below is a list Tim Hortons sent me of products which contain NO ALCOHOL. ------------------------------------------------------------ The following is the list of products that do not have alcohol-containing flavours. This list is applicable to both Canada and the U.S. Beverages • Coffee (Original Blend, Decaffeinated, Dark Roast) • Hot chocolate • French Vanilla Cappuccino • English Toffee Cappuccino • Orange Pekoe Tea (Regular, Decaffeinated) • Steeped Black Tea • Earl Grey Tea • English Breakfast Tea • Green Tea • Apple Cinnamon Herbal Tea • Chamomile Herbal Tea • Honey Lemon Herbal Tea • Peppermint Herbal Tea • Chai Tea Baked Goods, Donuts & Timbits • 12 Grain Bagel • Cinnamon Raisin Bagel • Plain Bagel • Sesame Seed Bagel • Sundried Tomato Asiago Parm Bagel • Jalapeno Asiago Mozzarella Bagel • Pretzel Bagel • Blueberry Muffin • Chocolate Chip Muffin • Cran Apple Walnut Bran Muffin • Lemon Poppyseed Muffin • Whole Grain Pecan Banana Bread Muffin • Whole Grain Carrot Orange Muffin • Oatmeal Raisin Cookie • Unfilled, Untopped Donuts and Timbits (Glaze does not contain alcohol) • Cheese Tea Biscuit • Raisin Tea Biscuit • Homestyle Biscuit • Plain Croissant Breakfast Items • Hash Brown • Maple Oatmeal • Mixed Berry Oatmeal • Egg White Omlette • Egg Omlette Lunch Items • Soup - East Coast Clam Chowder • Soup - Cauliflower and Cheese • Soup - Creamy Sundried Tomato • Soup - Harvest Vegetable • Soup - Cream of Asparagus (Quebec Only) • White Sandwich Bun • Whole Wheat Sandwich Bun • White Panini Bread • Light Mayonnaise • Creamy Sundried Tomato Spread Also I read on your website that all Great Value products are not halal except for those which have Halal or Kosher symbol. Please explain more about this. JazakAllah Khair - Tanveer
  • AOA

    Our requirement is the product has to be Kosher certified. The reason is that with Halal kosher symbol containing product the manufacturer can not add Haram hidden ingredients. One example Apple juice, if it does not have kosher symbol the manufacturer can use pork gelatin during the processing of apple juice. Pork gelatin is not appear under the ingredients statemnet because it is a processing aid or hidden ingredient FDA in both USA and Canada allow manufacturer to use it without menioning under ingredients statement. We have contacted Tim Horton and they replied to us:

    Tim Horton Donuts and Bagels are not Halal

      TIM HORTON DONUTS, BAGELS AND OTHER BAKERY PRODUCTS ARE NOT HALAL BECAUSE OF CROSS CONTAMINATION

    We have research extensively with Tim Horton consumer department, Nutrition/ Regulatory department and thoroughly researched the ingredients of Donuts, Bagels and other bakery products and found many products are kosher certified and meet Halal requirements. But Tim Horton Company cannot guarantee about the Halal and kosher status of their products. They said that the products with kosher status loosed its status when they prepared at store which uses pork and other meat. Donuts and all bakery products came to stores as frozen then they baked on the sheet in the oven.

  • Mono-Diglycerides - what is the source of this ingredient? - Rizwan Alam
  • AOA

    From our 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. In the absence of Halal or Kosher symbol on the package Muslim consumers should contact the manufacturer to find out the source of Mono & Diglycerides.
