  • Is Traditions Ice Cream sold in costco is Halal or not? It contains mono and diglycerides. - Khalid Rahim
  • AOA

    Ice cream if it has a kosher symbol and no flavor then it is Halal other wise not.

    From 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.

Are these halal or are they alcoholic? The ingredients also listed 'flavourings'. Is that ok? Otherwise the box does have a 'suitable for vegetarians' symbol. JazakAllah - Hamid Khan
  • AOA

    It is Halal only if no alcohol used as a solvent in flavoring. Please send this type question to manufacturer.

    " 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".

    This because we do not know what hidden ingredients they add to it but if they have kosher symbol then there will be no Haram hidden ingredients added to it. This is the reason Halal or kosher symbols protect Muslims from adding Haram hidden ingredients.

    Stevia used in ratial food product is not Halal because it is obtained through alcoholic fermentation. Spirulina is a blue-green algae that has been heralded as a "super food". It is high in chlorophyll, nutrients and vitamin B-12 and it is Halal.

    If there is no hidden alcohol in flavor then it is Halal.

    HOW TO PHRASE YOUR QUESTION ABOUT ALCOHOL IN FLAVOR OF A FOOD PRODUCT

    The question about alcohol in flavor is a tricky one because it is a hidden ingredient of the flavor. If you ask alcohol question to non technical consumer department person of a food company, first they look at the ingredients list of the food product and will find no alcohol is mentioned. Then they will say we do not use alcohol in our products because they do not know the alcohol is a hidden ingredient of the flavor. We request Muslim consumers to use the following phrase when asking or writing the question to consumer department of any food company regarding the presence or absence of alcohol in the flavor of a food product.

    " 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 came to know about mono and di glycerides and wanted to know whether old mill white bread is halal or not? - Saima Sohail
  • 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.

    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.
