    Yes, I said because I did not search it and have no knowledge lon kit due to lack of time. You do not understand I am the only one person doing research in USA and Canada and working two websites answering questions every day. This Maca powder is not food product nor a ingredient used in food products available in supermarkets. It requires tim to research it. It is for medical purpose. Our organization's main concentration is on supermarket foods not like Meca powder which I never heard before.

    Any how it is Halal to use.

  • AOA

    Alert Title Description Date
    Why Cheetos and Doritos (except Doritos Toasted Corn Tortilla Chips) are not Halal

    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.

Thank you for contacting Lassonde. Stephane Garay Lassonde consumer service - Afifa
  • AOA

    Thanks for your information. On our Canadian website Oasis juices are not listed as Halal because they do not carry a kosher symbol which need for preventing adding Haram Hideen ingredients. I never assign Halal status to any Oasis products. Not all marine are Halal for Hanafi Muslims. The flavor is made with alcohol. Even their apple juice is not because ther is no kosher symbol on the package. Without kosher symbol pork gelatin can be used as hidden ingredient during the processing of apple juice.

Although we use a lambda carrageenan, the supplier has indicated that no alcohol is used in the processing. We hope this helps. Sincerely, Deborah Consumer Relations Coordinator Marketing Department Saputo - Afifa
  • AOA

    Thanks for your information yes Lambda Carrageenan is used in whipping cream because Lambda carrageenan is a cold soluble, non-gelling carrageenan that improves mouthfeel in dairy beverages.

    I appreciate if you forward their e-mail to me at halalfoods@hotmail.com then I will change the Halal status of Dairyland Whipping cream on the website.

  • I came across this website: http://www.jamiaislamia.org/halalharam.html It also classifies halal and haram things. But some of the things they have classified (Like Breyers Icee Cream) are not listed as haram on your website. Is there a way to get a unified ruling on what products are halal and what are not? - Khan
  • AOA

    I gave a lecture at their Masjid in Missssauga in the first week of May 2014. I talk to to a brother who live in Alberta or some where who maintained the list and send him a copy of my book " Food Ingredients and Their Halal Status" but still they did not change. All the data on the website are old and misleading. Please call them to correct the information. If they need my help then I will help them to update the lsit. I do not think so that the information listed on their website is correct.

  • is mono & diglycerides is halal its in ice cream - safoora
  • AOA

    From our Services/FAQ Section:

    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.

    Natural Fertility Shop's products are not kosher certified. For example: Fertilica Vitex 500mg (60Vegetarian Caps. It contains Magnesium Stearate which could be from plant fat or animal fat. They diid not mentioned this is a vegetrain products only say about vegetarian caps.

    If you confirm with them that the Magnisium Stearate is from vegetable fat and there is no hidden or processing ingredients used. If the yes then you can use because kosher symbol protect Muslims from adding hidden Haram ingredients.

  • What is halal/ what CAN we eat at Tim hortons - Maham
  • AOA

    Ethyl Alcohol is used in Tim Horton's bakery products and also in other products

    Br. Syed has provide this information from Tim Horton in Canada:

    Dear Mr. Shah, 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. We have attached the ingredient list for the French Vanilla Cappuccino for your review. 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 flavours. We have also confirmed that the flavours used in our donuts without fillings do not contain alcohol. Furthermore, at Tim Hortons, we employ trained individuals who review all products (including their ingredient lists) thoroughly to ensure they are safe for our guests to consume. We comply with all government regulations to provide safe and acceptable food items. We hope this information will help to clarify your concerns regarding Tim Hortons products. Please call us on the guest service number at 1-888-601-1616 if you require more information. Yours truly, The TDL Group Corp. Chloe, Guest Services Representative Toll Free: 1-888-601-1616 www.timhortons.com

    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.

    I do not recoomedn any food with Kosher symbol to be consume except if the ingredients are Halal and you confirmed from the company that no hidden ingredients are used.

    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.
