  • Salam.. recently i came across a website in which i read that vanilla extract is derived from vanilla beans by mixing it with alcohol as a solvent. So the products contaning vanillin or natural vanilla flavour are not halal. Now my question is is that really so or the alchol evaporates during the making of chocolates and biscuits as some of the products consumer department claim it so. Or we should avoid such products completely? And if the product is made in an Islamic country, then can we trust it n consume it or not? Waiting for the answer. Jazallah o khair - Faiza
  • AOA

    You might see it at our US website www.muslimconsumergroup.com our ulema said that as soon as alcohol touches the Halal ingredients it losed their Halal status. It does not mather wehther alcohol evaporate or not because nobody the alcohol in chocolate or biscuits.

  • Assalaamo-alaikum, I read on your website that Krispy Cream donuts are not halal My elder sister who is very fond of Krispy cream donuts sent me the following links that claim Krispy cream donuts are Halal: http://www.examiner.com/article/krispy-kreme-proud-to-announce-their-doughnuts-are-halal-certified http://www.krispykreme.com/About/Nutritional-Info Please therefore correct this on your website. Wassalaam, Marium Owais - Marium Owais
  • AOA

    Krispy Kreme approached me for Halal certification then ask do use alcohol in flavor. They said yes. Then I told them I can not Halal certify your products. There vare many Halal certifying organization in USA and Canada who Halal certify the food products made with alcohol containing flavors. Ask yourc sister to read this Hadith about intoxication:

    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 )

  • AOA

    It is a Halal Soy sauce. If wheat & Soy present in soy sauce then it is not Halal.

    From our FAQ:

    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.

[[My email]] Chapman's Website English - General Inquiry # 142479 Your Name: Raheel Your Email Address: raheel_15@live.com What City/Town do you live in? Waterloo What Province do you live in? ON Phone Number: Is this user opted in for newsletters: False Comments: Hi, I previously inquired about Chapman's frozen yogurt and ice cream, and I got a satisfactory answer to my first question, thank you for that. But my second question left me with some ambiguities. Kindly answer my question regarding Flavors used in Chapman's products. Question: 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. I would highly appreciate if you provide me with a list of those products that does NOT have Ethanol used as part of the flavor. Thank You.

    They did not mentioned that the following products are not made with alcohol containing flavor. Some times when alcohol content is too low then they just say that they do not containing alcohol because it is hard to detect. You have insist them by calling to the supervisor tell her or him it is due to my dietary requirement to know whether alcohol was used as solvent in flavor. It does not matter how low is alcohol in the product.
