  • AoA, I emailed Chapman's about their ice cream's carrageenan and flavor. Here is the email. Kindly tell me if this makes these ice creams halal or not (and update the lists if required). ||My email||: Hi, I needed some information regarding ingredients of Chapman's Ice Creams. You QA department will be able to answer these technical questions. Question 1) Carrageenan can be processed using KCl (Potassium Chloride), Isopropyl Alcohol, or Ethyl Alcohol. Which one is used by Chapman's in its production? Question 2) The Flavors, Artificial or otherwise, used in various ice creams might contain 'Ethyl Alcohol' as a solvent or as hidden ingredient. Which ones of you products does NOT use flavors containing Ethyl Alcohol. Thanks! ||Reply||: From: contactus@chapmans.ca To: raheel_15@live.com Subject: RE: Chapman's Website English - General Inquiry # 139754 Date: Wed, 28 Jan 2015 19:29:36 +0000 Thank you for taking the time to contact us.

  • AOA

    Thank for your information but is not good enough for alcohol in flavor. Carrageenan is Halal. But they should repy no alcohol is used in the flavor of the following ingredients. The consumer do not that information about present or absence of alcohol in flavors. Please the alcohol question this way:

    The Question about Alcohol in any Flavor

    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 ethanol or ethyl alcohol used as a solvent in flavor; ethanol or ethyl 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 ethanol or ethyl 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 ethanol or ethyl alcohol was used or not in the flavor as a solvent".

  • Assalamu Alaikum. I contacted Nestle in 2012 and asked about their Coffee Crisp chocolate and whether it contained alcohol or animal-derived ingredients. I got the answer: Coffee Crisp; Alcohol - Vanilla flavour used in Coffee Crisp does contain ethyl alcohol as a carrier which is removed during processing. There is no alcohol in the finished product. Animal - No animal sourced materials are used in the manufacture of the raw materials, except for milk. Even though ethyl alcohol is used in the vanilla flavour, because there is no ethyl alcohol present in the final product, does that make it halal? Thank you for your help. - Maria
  • AOA

    It is not Halal product. Nobody no how many amount alcohol left in the product because they do not test for alcohol. When Vanilla Flavor containing alcohol added to other Halal ingredients. Then those Halal ingredients losed their Halal status according to our Ulema. It does not matter whether alcohol evaporated or if it does not make you intoxicate. Alcohol is Haram.

    A little bit of intoxicant/Alcohol is haram too:

    Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu�minin RA:

    I heard the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) say: Every intoxicant is forbidden; if a faraq of anything causes intoxication, a handful of it is forbidden.� ( Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 26:Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah)

    Narrated Umm Salamah RA, Ummul Mu�minin RA:

    The Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) forbade every intoxicant and everything which produces languidness. (Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 28:Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah)� 3678 )

    All Natural and Artificial Flavor of Tim Horton baked products contain Alcohol

    A sister has provided this e-mail from Tim Horton in Canada:

    I contacted timhortons customer care department by email and here is what they said: Thank you for taking the time to contact Tim Hortons Head Office with your inquiry. Your request was for information regarding the use of ethyl alcohol as a flavour carrier in our products. Many of our baked goods contain added flavours, which may contain trace amounts of ethyl alcohol. Please note that any alcohol in baked products will evaporate during the baking process. Please note however that ethyl alcohol may be an ingredient in the flavourings for all donut fillings. The alcohol content in the finished product would be trace. Please note that if natural or artificial flavour is listed, then the product may contain ethyl alcohol as a carrier. We have confirmed that our Iced Capps contain ethyl alcohol as a carrier for the flavors. We have also confirmed that the flavors used in our donuts without fillings do not contain alcohol. and they also told me that there is no cross contamination in their products regards - 01-18-15 21:38:24

    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.

    From our FAQ:

    Confectionery Glaze

    Confectionary Glaze or Resinous Glaze is made from Shellac (Shellac is a insect secretion) which is dissolved in alcohol, and then alcohol is evaporated and glazed on the surface of food products. It is also part of sprinkles on top of bakery products and ice cream. MCG does not consider it as a Halal ingredient because of alcohol.

  • Is your research outdated? Cause i think we being muslims can use products with Kosher symbol. And as for today, maximum of the sodas and many others things have that Kosher symbol on it which are labelled HARAM on website. Please tell what to do? CocaCola, Fanta, 7up, many chocolates and many other things are with COR (kosher) symbol. Can we use it? - Abdul Rafay
  • AOA

    I come almost every year to Toronto from Chicago suburb to do research in 8 supermarket. Lat time was in May 2014 so Muslims in Canada benefit from my research consume only Halal foods.

    Yo do not read our Home page, if you did then you should not write this question. It says not all kosher certified food products ar Halal unless they meet Halal requirements. Our organization spend $1250 to send Coke, Pepsi and 7UP to a outside lab in USA (it is reoprted on this website under Alert) to find out alcohol in it. They lab annalysis showed no alcohol in Pepsi but they find alcohol in Coke and 7 Up. Our organization is a non profit without a regular income we can not spend money to send rest of soft drink for alcohol analysis. So all soft drink except above with kosher COR symbol are mashbooh. You should not be drinking except Pepsi.

    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)

  • My family recently purchased Dole Peaches in Water. The ingredients say the following: Clingstone peaches, water, natural flavour, citric acid, ascorbic acid, sucralose. I contacted them regarding natural flavour as I knew it was a suspicious ingredient, however I do not know whether to contact them regarding the use of sucralose. Is sucralose halal? According to my knowledge, it is just a type of calorie-free sugar. Thanks. - Anonymous
  • AOA

    Dole Peaches in Water is Halal only if no alcohol is used in natural flavor. Sucralose is calory free swettener and it is Halal. You hav eto send Dole this e-mail to ask whether alcohol was used in natural flavor or not.

    " 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.

  • Selamun aleykum; I have checked the halal/haram ingredients list and natural/artificial flavour is listed under the haram list. As well as torula yeast. Yet chips "lays" and chocolate "mars and twix" are listed as halal when you look their brand names up. However lays has torula yeast and mars , twix has natural/artificial flavours in them...I would like to know if they are halal or haram. And as well brand Cadbury makes Kosher (COR) chocolates yet they are listed as haram , it contains vanilla and natural/artificial flavours in the products of Cadbury, if they are halal or haram i would like to know please. Thank you, JazaakAllah. - Taha Ekrem

    Halal Status Ingredient Category Description
    unknown Turola Yeast Grain & Plant based Ingredients Torula yeast is single celled plant and used for flavoring. It can be grown on sugar cane which is a Halal substrate or it can be grown on alcohol or liquor the it became not Halal.
    unknown Artificial Flavors Mineral, Chemical, Synthetic based Ingredients Artificial Flavors are usually made from chemical and synthetic raw material. For Halal artificial flavor the synthetic raw material has to be Halal and solvent should not be alcohol. Not Halal artificial are made from non Halal raw material and alcohol is used as a solvent.
    unknown Natural Flavors Grain & Plant based Ingredients or meat Natural flavor is made from any natural material including meat. It is Halal if it is Halal or Kosher certified and alcohol is not used as a solvent. A natural flavor could br Kosher certified but alcohol could be use as a solvent then in this case it is not Halal. So therre two requirements, one the Halal material is used as a raw material and second no alcohol is used as a solvent

    MUSLIMS ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTIONS TO HALAL VITAMINS

    Many Muslims are using non Halal vitamins from stores like Wal-Mart, Pharmacy, GNC. This is because of lack of knowledge about the Halal status of those vitamins.

    MCG get every day a question from Muslims asking about the Halal status of xyz vitamins.

    MCG is providing help in picking up the Halal vitamins after it researched that Solgar brnad with Kosher symbol on the package meet the Halal requirements. Vitamin Shoppe store is located in Toronto at:

    95 laird drive Leaside Village Toronto  ON,  M4G 3T7 Phone: 4164294957

    NewMarket NewMarket East Gwillimbury  ON,  l9n 0a2 Phone: 9058539068

    Kosher Vitamins are also available at:

    The Maxi Health brand s Maxi Omega 3200 Kosher Fish Oil is made with fish gelatin capsule and it is Halal for Muslims:

    Store in Toronto: KOBO at Wilson

    Phone numebr: 416-633-8784

    Brand Name: Maxi Health

    Products name: Maxi's Omega 3200 Kosher Fish Oil Capsule

    On our website we have a list of Halal vitamins, Halal Prenatal Vitamins, Halal Fish or Omega Oil and where to buy them. So please search them under Vitamins, Prenatal Vitamins and Fish Oil.

    At: www.koshervitamins.com

    MCG advises Muslims to check the Halal status of vitamins before consuming them. Many major brand of vitamins are not Halal such as:

    Centrum, Equate, Citracal, Nature Made, Vitafusion, One A Day, GNC, Flintstone, Nature Beauty, Walgreen, Geritol, Nature Bounty, Garliq, Estroven, Disney Gummies, Fiber Smart, Caltrale, Finest Nature, One Source, Lill Critteers, Culturelle, Philps, Ultimate Florea, Viactive, Elatins, Os-Cal, Spring Valley, Schiff, Stevia, Optimum Nutrition, Mega Red, Ocuvite, Alive, Centrum Kid, Active Kid, Spring Valley, Bayer, CVS Vitaminsand Krirkland Signature.

    They are not Halal because they are not Halal or Kosher certified or do not have a Halal or Kosher symbol on the package. Even if they do not contain gelatin, they are still not Halal because they add without restriction any Haram hidden ingredient. Halal or Kosher certification protects Muslims from adding Haram Hidden or Processing Aid Ingredients which are not required to be mention under ingredients statement by FDA.

     

    03/22/14
    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.

  • AOA

    Only 100% coffee and 100% tea are Halal ar Tim Horton.

    " But as it is not in a portion that can intoxicate.it is halal or not"

    This is not the option for Muslims.

    A little bit of intoxicant/Alcohol is haram too:

    Narrated Aisha, Ummul Muminin RA:

    I heard the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) say: Every intoxicant is forbidden; if a faraq of anything causes intoxication, a handful of it is forbidden. ( Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 26:Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah)

    Narrated Umm Salamah RA, Ummul Muminin RA:

    The Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) forbade every intoxicant and everything which produces languidness. (Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 28:Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah) 3678 )

    Wilton Buttercream is Haram because it contains Vanilla Extract. Vanilla Extract can not be called Vanilla Extract by FDA unless it must contain 35% ethyl alcohol.

    You have to look for kosher certified icing without any flavor or with no alcohol in flavor or make your own iceing by adding Halal artificial vanill flavor syrup. See if you can find them in Canada or call the company where to get it:

    WHY CHEETOS AND DORITOS SNACKS ARE NOT HALAL IN CANADA

    There is no kosher symbol on the package of Cheetos and Doritos. This makes them Non Halal because they can add any Haram Hidden or Processing aid ingredients without mentioning under the ingredients statement. Cheese used in Cheetos and Doritos are not Kosher certified and not Halal. Sine these products are not under Halal or Kosher certification then Frito Lay can use non kosher certified flavors or colors. There is no restriction for Frito Lay to make Cheetos or Doritos on their own lines or on co-packers line where pork containing products are made. This exposes a great possibility of cross contamination of pork containing ingredients.

    All these snacks are very attractive to adults and children but there is a Hadith which says that Allah will not accept your dua for 40 days if a Muslim eats intentionally a bit of Haram food. So MCG recommend Muslims not consume above snacks

  • Alcohol used in vanilla extract is from chemical not which is I think not haram. This type of alcohol used in eudicolon also and ulama allow to use it? - Shahid Yousuf
  • AOA

    Our Ulem believe alcohol from any source is Haram because it is a intoxicant.

    A little bit of intoxicant/Alcohol is haram too:

    Narrated Aisha, Ummul Muminin RA:

    I heard the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) say: Every intoxicant is forbidden; if a faraq of anything causes intoxication, a handful of it is forbidden. ( Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 26:Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah)

    Narrated Umm Salamah RA, Ummul Muminin RA:

    The Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) forbade every intoxicant and everything which produces languidness. (Sunan Abu-Dawud, Book 28:Drinks (Kitab Al-Ashribah) 3678 )

  • The source of mono and diglycerides in 35% milk - Muhammad chuhan
  • AOA

    From our FAQ:

    Is Milk Halal:

    The answer is yes. Milk from buffalo, camel, cow and goat is Halal by itself however milk in the US and Canada from cows and goats must be fortified with vitamins A and D by law. California is the only state where milk can be sold without vitamin fortification.

    What are the source of Vitamins A and D:

    Vitamin A for milk fortification is produced commercially by reacting calcium carbonate with water and then esterifies with palmitic acid (it could be from a plant or an animal or a synthetic but soy fat based is used only). Vitamin D3 is produced from sheep's wool Lanolin (Halal) without slaughtering the sheep.

    Presence of Polysorbate 80 as an emulsifier in Vitamin Mixes:

    A fat based emulsifier Polysorbate 80 is added to the vitamin mix for milk fortification as a processing aid ingredient. Polysorbate 80 helps vitamins in the mix to distribute evenly in the milk so that it is satisfy the law requirement of a specific amount of vitamins per quart of milk. Polysorbate 80 is not listed under the ingredients list on the milk containers because it is considered a processing aid ingredient. Soy fat or vegetable fat based Polysorbate is always used in the Vitamin Mix for milk.

    Vitamin Mix for milk is always Halal in USA and Canada: 

    Every dairy in USA and Canada has to use only Kosher certified (meets the Halal requirements) Vitamins because there is no non Kosher certified vitamins available. Any brand of milk in USA and Canada is Halal. Composition of Vitamin mix for milk fortification: The ingredients of Vitamin Mix for milk fortification are Vitamin A, Vitamin D3, Water, Polysorbate 80 (an emulsifier), Propylene Glycol (to prevent freezing) and Sodium Benzoate as preservative. Ingredients other than Vitamin A and Vitamin D3 will not appear on the ingredients list of milk containers because they considered as processing aid ingredients.

    Following are only 6 manufacturer of Vitamin Mix for milk and they areTastemaker, Bungi Foods, Vitamins Inc., Danisco-Grindsted, BASF, and Roche vitamins.

    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.
