    NOT ALL KOSHER CERTIFIED (NON MEAT) FOOD PRODUCTS ARE HALAL, ONLY THOSE WHO 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 Standard):

    (1) L-Cysteine made from human hair or chicken or duck feathers, (2) Wine, (3) Liquor, (4) Beer batter, (5) Rum flavor, (6) Ethyl Alcohol or ethanol or Alcohol as a main ingredient, (7) Cochineal or Carmine, (8) Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce (containing Wheat & Soy as ingredients), (9) Brewer’s Yeast or Brewer Yeast Extract from byproduct of beer making, (10) Nucleotides ( Torula yeast is the as source of Nucleotides but it is grown on Alcohol)), (11) Pectin ( A Mashbooh ingredient, Alcohol may be used during processing for crystization so it needs investigation), (12) Vanilla Extract, (13) Wine Vinegar, (14) Balsamic Vinegar, (15) Apple Cider Vinegar (Mashbooh, needs to investigation for fermented apple cider), (16) Natural or Artificial Flavor (If hidden ethyl alcohol is used as a solvent then it is not Halal), (17) Confectionary Glaze or Resinous Glaze (Alcohol is used in both), (18) Torula Yeast grown on alcohol, (19) Carrageenan ( A Mashbooh ingredient,  if ethyl alcohol or Ethanol or Alcohol is used during its processing then it is not Halal), (20) Natural Vanilla or Natural Vanilla Flavor(because Alcohol is used in its extraction), (21) Any grape wine by-product such grape skin powder, grape seed oil, grape seed extract, (22) Gelatin (23) Kosher Gelatin.

  • Carrageen is from seaweed its a vegetarian alternative to gelatin. How is it haram? Salams - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Carrageenan

    Carrageenan is a mushbooh gum obtained from seaweeds but during its production it is crystallized either by Ethyl Alcohol or Isopropyl Alcohol or Potassium Chloride (KCl) or none of all. If Potassium Chloride (KCL) or Isopropyl alcohol is used but taken out completley or none of any thing was used during the processing of Carrageenan then it will be Halal. But if Ethyl Alcohol was use to crystallized the Carrageenan then this Carrageenan will become NOT HALAL ingredient. Only the manufacturer of Carrageenan know what they use to crystallized Carrageenan during its processing.

    So ask manufacturer of food product who used Carrageenan to find out from their Carrageenan supplier whether Ethyl Alcohol was used during the processing of Carrageenan.

  • Assalamualikum, Why HP sauce and Worcestershire sauce s not halal in Canada. Heinz declared that HP sauce has no pig DNA pigment in sauce and also American Muslim community confirmed it.Please reply me and also tell me about there hidden ingredients because I have no way to know about it. - Roohi
  • AOA

    We do not assign Halal status any food product unless it has a kosher symbol on the package which meets MCG Halal criteria.There are several American Muslim Community  which one you are talking about.

    HP Sauces are not Halal because there is no Kosher symbol on the package. Without Halal or Kosher certification manufacturer can add Haram hidden ingredients which will not appear in ingredients list because FDA allows them.

    Worcestershire sauceis made fermented fish and it could be a alcoholic fermented fish. This is the reason we do not recommend to Muslims.

    Declaring no Pig DNA does not mean nothing as there are other Haram ingredients other than pig. It has to have a Halal or Kosher symbol on the package even with Kosher symbol alcohol be used.

    Please provide American Muslim Community confirming letter. Many organization do not have food scientist working for them.

    As I said we follow Kosher certification but they should meet our Halal criteria which as follows:

     

    Halal Standard for Non Meat Food Ingredients and Food Products: The Halal food ingredients and food products should not be made of: (1) L-Cysteine made from human hair or chicken or duck feathers, (2) Wine, (3) Liquor, (4) Beer batter, (5) Rum flavor, (6) Ethyl Alcohol or ethanol or Alcohol as a main ingredient, (7) Cochineal or Carmine, (8) Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce (containing Wheat & Soy as ingredients), (9) Brewer’s Yeast or Brewer Yeast Extract from byproduct of beer making, (10) Nucleotides ( Torula yeast is the source of Nucleotides but it is grown on Alcohol)), (11) Pectin ( A Mashbooh ingredient, Alcohol may be used during processing for crystization so it needs investigation), (12) Vanilla Extract, (13) Wine Vinegar, (14) Balsamic Vinegar, (15) Apple Cider Vinegar (Mashbooh, needs to investigation for fermented apple cider), (16) Natural or Artificial Flavor (If hidden or processing aid ethyl alcohol is used as a solvent then it is not Halal), (17) Confectionary Glaze or Resinous Glaze (Alcohol is used in both), (18) Torula Yeast grown on alcohol, (19) Carrageenan ( A Mashbooh ingredient, if ethyl alcohol or Ethanol or Alcohol is used during its processing then it is not Halal), (20) Natural Vanilla or Natural Vanilla Flavor(because Alcohol is used in its extraction), (21) Any grape wine by-product such grape skin powder, grape seed oil, grape seed extract, (22) Gelatin (23) Kosher Gelatin.

    The non meat food product is made with Halal ingredients listed under Food Ingredients section of our website. MCG accepts Kosher certified ingredients and food products if they meet MCG Halal requirements.

    MCG do not Halal certify meat products except fish.

    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

    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. It is important to know that the fish gelatin from cat fish is not consider Halal or Kosher because of fish mouth.

  • Asalam alaikum you said some stuff are haram because they have no kosher or halal sign on them. That is I'm my wrong. Not every company is run by a Muslim or Jew. Going by your logic with all do respect we can say milk bags themselves are haram they have no kosher or halal sign. You check if something is haram by the ingredients. Can you please clarify - Anonymous user
  • AOA

    Can any company tell you what hidden ingredients they use in their products. No company provides that informatioo. There are more ingredienmts used than mentioned under ingredients statement. The cookie you eat, they can use lard to lubricate the oven so that cookies are stick to oven band. They will not report lard under ingredients statement because it is processing aid or hidden ingredient. Vitamins Mix used in milk is kosher certified in USA/Canada so many dairy do not use any animal fat coating for milk. Milk from any brand is Halal in USA/Canada.

    Halal or Kosher symbol on food package protect Muslims from adding Haram hidden ingredients in the food products.

  • Silani has recently changed their packaging for Mozzarella cheese. Before it used to have KD symbol but now only has K symbol with these ingredients: Cheese (pasteurized part skim milk, modified milk ingredients, calcium chloride, microbial enzyme, bacterial culture, sodium citrate, sodium phosphate, potato and/or corn starch, salt), potassium sorbate. They have also come out with Halal Mozzarella balls certified by HMA (Halal Monitoring Authority) but found them very salty. So I thought to buy regular Silani but the absence of D symbol made me wonder if it is ok for us to consume it. If I were to ask a question relating to this to Silani, what should I ask for? Any input regarding this would be appreciated. I'm located in Toronto, ON. - AL
  • AOA

    I think it is a typo. Any Kosher symbol on dairy products or dairy ingredients containing product must have to indicate it is a dairy product so that Jewish people should not use it with meat products.

    I have no idea about Halal certified cheese balls.

  • 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.

  • Assalam-o-alikum. I recently asked a question regarding Kraft 100% parmesan cheese on this website. Today I called the manufacturer and verified all the ingredients myself. Therefore I wanted to share the answer I got. They assured me that there is no animal source used in this product at all (100% grated Parmesan cheese from Costco). It uses microbial enzymes and the milk present is from cow. I am sending you the item number and the manufacturer number so you can verify yourself as well and update on your website. If you need to contact me please feel free to at my email. JizakAllah khair. Brand: Kraft Product: 100% parmesan grated cheese Net wt: 680g Bought from: Costco Item no: #766951 Barcode no: 0 68100 89477 6 Phone no: 1-855-243-3739 Ingredients: parmesan cheese ( Milk, Salt, Bacterial culture, Modified milk ingredients, Calcium chloride, Microbial enzyme, Lipase), Cellulose powder, Potassium sorbate. - Nimra Rehan
  • AOA

    I used to work for Kraft USA and know that its Parmesan cheese is not Halal because it is not kosher certified. There are many hidden ingredients which has to be Halal. Use of microbial enzyme does not make it Halal.

    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.
