  • AOA

    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.

    halal Whipping Cream Whipping Cream Sealtest According to brother Syed's e-mail: please refer to the email chain and tell me are sealtest creams halal or not I've emailed them and inquired and they say they use isopropyl alcohol. Dear Mr Syed, We thank you for your interest in Sealtest products. According to our carrageenan supplier, Isopropyl alcohol is used during the extraction of the carrageenan we use in our Sealtest creams. No other solvents are used. Also according to our supplier, the residual level of alcohol present in the carrageenan after extraction does not exceed 0.1 %. Hope this helps. Best regards.

    This bakery makes bread , pastry, take and bake products. Pastry is always has flavor in it. You have to send this e-mail to that QA Manager who does not what he talking about alcohol. I spend most of my life working in baking companies:

    " 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. 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 alcohol was used or not in the flavor as a solvent. The consumer department can not answer this question because they do not have access to specification of ingredients".

    Since their website do not provide the ingredients so you have to check your self if the following ingredients are used:

    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.

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

  • 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.

  • Is any Activia danone yoghurt contain pork gelatin - Karin Mohamed
  • AOA

    Activa Yogurts are not Halal and it may contain pork gelatin.

    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.
