  • My son want to use whey power.is this halal ingredients.thanks - Samia Ismail
  • AOA

    Whey is only Halal if it is Halal or Kosher certified. From our FAQ:

    Is Whey a Halal ingredient:

    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 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. MCG considers Lactose Halal only if it is Halal or Kosher certified.

    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.

  • Is no frills no name brand vanilla flavour halal? Many scholars argue the fact that alcohol in some food is permissible, because it is not intoxicating. Many chocolates consist of 0.005% of alcohol however they are allowed. When using vanilla flavour the most a baker would use is 2-3 tsp etc, just for the flavour. Please do email me back as soon as possible I have been searching for answers for some time. I look forward to hearing back from you. Thank you. Farah.A - farah
  • AOA

    All those arguments are wrong because they are eating themself and asking Muslims to do so. So they are committing fitna. Ask them to show me that alcohol contain of 0.005% is Halal. It does not matter whether alcohol may not make you intoxicate. As soon as alcohol added to Halal ingredients they lose Halal status because alcohol is nagus and Haram.

    Natural Vanilla or Vanilla flavor is made by extracting it through alcohol. Vanilla beans are Halal but when you add alcohol then they became Haram. Your scholars has no know ledge of food science because there is a Halal vanillin which is a artificial flavor used in Halal Oreo cookies or if the need vanilla flavor. They can go No Frill or any supeermarket and look for 100% pure Vanilla Beans in Spice aisle. Take little Halal vanilla beans and soak in milk and usein any home make chocolate or bakery products.

    Ask them about this Hadith

    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)

  • I emailed Kraft Canada to ask them about any animal ingredients their cheese might contain. This is the reply i got. Does this mean some of their cheeses are halal? "Thank you for visiting http://www.kraftcanada.com. Most of our Kraft cheeses marketed in Canada do not use animal-based rennet. They use a microbial enzyme. Microbial enzymes are produced by cultures of microorganisms such as molds or yeast. This includes cheeses produced by Kraft Canada, even those without the Kraft brand name (for example, P'tit Quebec, McLaren's, etc.). Exceptions to this general rule are the Kraft-imported Brie, Blue and Camembert cheeses marked "Product of Denmark". Danish cheeses may use either calf rennet or a microbial enzyme, and are identified by their "Product of Denmark" label and "pie slice" shape. If the word "lipase" appears in the ingredient line of a Kraft product then the enzyme will be of animal origin. Thank you for contacting us and please add our site to your favourites and visit us again soon!" - Huzaifa Misbah
  • AOA

    Please keep in your mind that microbial rennet is not the only criteria for Halal cheese. Only those cheeses who has Halal or Kosher symbol on the packge are Halal and there are many Halal cheeses in supermarkets.

    CHEESES AND ITS HALAL STATUS:

    The following things have to be Halal in order for a cheese to be considered Halal: 1. Ingredients used to make the Mother Starter Culture growth Media ((if whey used, it has to be made from non animal rennet, Lactose is also from non animal rennet, yeast extract has to be from baker’s yeast, starter culture growth media has to be kosher certified). 2. Ingredients used to make the Bulk Starter Culture growth Media ((if whey used, it has to be made from non animal rennet, Lactose is also from non animal rennet, yeast extract has to be from baker’s yeast, bulk starter culture media has to be kosher certified). 3. Starter Bacterial culture are Halal if they obtained from milk source and not from meat source, usually in practice they obtained from milk. 4. Milk Coagulating Enzyme, such as Microbial rennet used to coagulate milk or Rennet obtained from Zabiha slaughtered calves (not available in USA and Canada) and has to be kosher certified 5. Fat Hydrolyzing Enzyme, such as Microbial Lipases has to be kosher certified 6. Dairy ingredients such as Non Fat dry milk solid or cream or dry milk or whey protein concentrate if added has to be kosher certified 7. Artificial color such as artificial blue or green color is added to neutralize natural yellow color in curd for Asiago or Blue cheese has to be kosher certified 8. Media to grow mold Penicillium roquefortti providing blue color in blue cheese has to kosher certified 9. Harmless plant based enzyme is if added for curing or flavor development and growth media for biological curing agent used on the surface of Brick cheese has to be kosher certified 10. Flavoring, hydrolyzed lactose, whey for cold packed cheese food is allowed in cream cheese but most manufacturer use gums. 11. Cheese must be Kosher certified and the kosher certification must meet the Halal requirements with exception cheese used on pizza, in that case cheese does not have to be kosher certified but if they used kosher certified starter culture bacteria, media and enzyme then meet above requirements then it is consider Halal. Cheese if Halal certified by other Halal certifying organizations must meet above criteria and if above criteria used for Halal certification then it must display on their websites otherwise MCG will not consider their Halal certified cheese as Halal.

  • AOA

    There are several foods with COR kosher symbol having natural or artificial flavor but it will not say whether valcohol is used or not you have to contact the manufacturer and write the alcohol question this way:

    " 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".

    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.

  • Thanks for the great work you guys are doing. I am new to Canada and found this website really helpful and at the same time a bit confusing when i read 'without kosher sign the product is not halal' - I had a question for the below two products that look alright but at the same time do not have any kosher sign. 1. Mango exotic juice [ingredients: water, mango pulp, sugar, citric acid, guar and xanthan gum ( stabilizer), natural and simulated flavours, ascorbic acid (vitamin c).] 2. French Vanilla Desert lactose/cholesterol/gluten free, suitable for vegans[ingredients: enriched soya drink (water, hulled soya beans(6.4%)), sugar, thickeners (modified tapioca starch, maltodextrin, pectin, carrageenan), tri-calcium phosphate, flavourings, sea salt, vitamins(riboflavin, B12, D2), coloring(turmeric, annatto) - Syed Ahmed
  • AOA

    Those products are not because use of alcohol in flavors, mushbooh Carrageenan Mushbooh Vitamins. I am the only one who runs two websites.

    Halal or Kosher symbol must be on food products to protect Muslims from adding Haram hidden ingredients in products. These Haram hidden ingredients are not appear on the ingredients statement.

    Vegan Friendly vitamins is not sustitute for Halal. We do not know what they add as a hidden ingredient. Halal or kosher symbols on the package protect Muslims from adding Haram hidden ingredients. It is better to buy Halal or kosher certified vitamins.

  • Asalaam o Alikum rahmatullahi wa barakatuh. my 21 month old son is anemic ..very low in iron. i can buy only supplement with kosher symbol? do you knw of any vitamin brand that has iron drops for toddlers? Also i found this link regarding small amount of alcohol found in many foods and other items. please have a look at it and tell me if it is accurate. many ulma and muftis consume many of the items that you listed as haram. they say the amount of alochol is very small just as this article states. jzk - S.S.
  • AOA

    SupHerb Kosher Iron Drops Liquid Exp 3/15 20 Ml from www.koshervitamins.com 1-800-645-1899. There is no alcohol in it is made of iron, Water, glycerin, citric acid. If you live in Toronto then ask KOBO store whether they carry or not otherwise you have to mail order it.

    Those ulema and Muftis like best testing and good looking foods to satisfy their nufs but they forgot about this hadith:

    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)

    They are not on right path and making others to to be on not right path so they will have double punishments at qiyama. Allah fearing ulema and Mufti will never recommend that so you have to find Allah fearing honest ulema and muftis.

  • here is my understanding to what i have to do whenever i want to purchase any product : first ,i have to look if there is a kosher symbol on the product or no.and if no then i should ignore the product. Second, if there is a kosher symbol on the product then i should look at the ingredients and only if they meet the halal criteria then i can eat it otherwise no.

  • Assalam o alaikum, I recently e mailed the bodyshop, inquring about the halal status, as many of their products say against animal cruelty. But i am confused as to what to interpret from their reply. Kindly enlighten. Jazak Allah Here is the reply i got on July 28th, 2014 Thank you for contacting The Body Shop online team. Please read below the reply we got from our relevant department: The Body Shop® products are not certified Halal. Many of the products are Halal though, by our understanding of the requirements. None of The Body Shop® products contain any ingredients derived from dead animals. The only animal ingredients that are used are honey, beeswax, shellac and milk, therefore we class the product range as being vegetarian friendly. Several The Body Shop® products contain ethanol, the intoxicating alcohol, which is on ingredient lists either as “ethanol” or “alcohol denat.”. If you have other questions or require further assistance, do not hesitate to contact us. Kind Regards Kristina Kuga Customer Support Representative - The Body Shop Customer Support | Americas weborder@thebodyshop.com - Sana
  • AOA

    They used gelatin then stop it but we do not know how many products in the market with gelatin. Shellac a insect secretion if dissolved in alcohol then it became not Halal.

    Alcohol is Haram so Body Shop product containing alcohol is also Haram. Please stay from Body Shop product.
