  • Brother there is some error in wording which is placed in this website please take a note of it. 1. On this website it should say that all pasta products of primo and selection etc are halal rather then saying Macroni and egg products are halal only because pasta has 10 to 15 different names and shapes. All pasta products have same things like It has Enriched samolina, Durem, Niacin, Riboflavin etc. So in the end all pasta products are suppose to be written halal rather then saying macroni and egg noodle are only halal, because macroni and egg noodle are 2 types of pasta but in market there are many different types of pasta which have same things just like these 2. - Faisal Haroon
  • AOA

    The problem you do not understand the Canadain Food laws, there is no official defination for pasta, it is slang for macroni product to simplify the consumers. Macoroni and Eggs noodles has to be made with those ingredients which specified by Canadian FDA and they can not add any thing. On other hand pasta is not a official product but any thing can be added including not Halal ingredients and its Halal status will be in question depend upon which ingredients they add. So buy only it says Macaroni product on the label. All the macaroni and egg noodles products are Halal. The Halal macroni products are Spaghetti, Thin Spaghetti, Elbow macoroni, Rotini, Shells, Riagtoni, Mostacciali Rigati, Mostachilli lisi, egg noodles which always carries a kosher symbol OU on the package. Those products you mentioned are not pasta products they are macroni products. I worked for 8 years at Prince Macaroni Company in USA and Primo was our competition. But the fact is that pasta is not a official product but macoroni is a official product . All Macroni products has to be made samolina or drum flour obtained from Durum wheat and enrichment and water. Since water is evaportaed so it is not mentioned under ingredients statement.

  • Hi brother: I asked you earlier a question that I bought Primo product pasta and also pasta for selection and there is NIACIN in both but on your site its listed as hallal. Just want to confirm again. Also please note that Pasta is a thing and it comes in many shapes and with different names like Macroni, sphaghetti, etc. So If Macroni product is halal then other shapes of pasta also suppose to be halal because they all have same ingredients just different shapes of pasta with different name. I'm not talking about pasta sauce here and only talking about pasta that comes in different shapes like Macronni, egg noodle, spagheti etc. Thanks brother - Faisal Haroon

  • Cigarettes contain more than 20 carcinogens. Why muslim scholars don't consider it haram? When a muslim man has a strong odor of cigarette on his body it disturbes other muslim praying beside him. Why no muslim imam os sheiks want to address this issue? Also think about stinky socks----- it give headache to fellow muslims. Can we not compare onion with stinky socks? I read in a hadith that a person who naturally possess bad breath should pray at home rather than in jamat. What is your take on these issues? - Jawad Hussain
  • AOA

    Whatever you are saying of smoking cigarettes or cigarettes itself is right. Imams or Muftisaheban can consider it Haram because it does not cause intoxication. Carcinogens causes cancer but it will not consider Haram because it will not intoxication. This is the reason they can not call it Haram. Tobaco causes so many problems but it is still consider Halal and smoking cigarettes is not Haram.

  • I hear Muslims are saying that koshers is the same as halal, but I don't understand it, how is it possible is they do not say a dua before killing the animal. - Ahmed

    Kosher meat is not Halal because the rabbi Sachet say prayer on the first animal and the last one but no prayer for in between animals. Suppose he has to slaughter 10 cows, he will say prayer on first one and 10th one but no prayer while slaughtering 2-9 numbered cows.

  • assalam-o-alaikum ,I have recantly migrated to Canada from Pakistan to my husband.Being in a non muslim country I am very causious now a days about halal and haram while buying anything .Most of the things which we used to buy in Pakistan without seeing any ingredient also available here.Now I have two questions in my mind 1.Can we buy products from pakistan like bar soap i.e. lux etc without investigating here.2.Should we investigate about ingredients particularly from animal source in Pakistan and other islamic countries where availabily of halal zabiha is comparatively easy. - HINA DANISH
  • AOA

    The sources of ingredients in Pakistan is not same in Canada but you can buy Pakistani made products in Pakistani stores not in supermarkets. Muslims living in Canada and USA must read the ingredients of each product and also look for Halal or kosher symbol on the products. Yes you should investigate the food product you want to buy by calling their 800 numbers.

  • Good afternoon! I am not a Muslim, but I have my own reasons for avoiding certain food products, especially animal products. I frequently see canned sauces, etc., from non-Muslim which are marked halal. Does this mean that they contain absolutely NO animal products (unless slaughtered by a Muslim), or is there some small percentage which the Sharia allows Muslims to ignore? Thanks. J. - Jordan

  • AOA

    Safway supermarket is located in Vancouver, Canada and I do research in Toronto, Canada. But I have done reserach on Safeway in California and the reserach was publsihed in MCG Halal food book. I do not whether Safeway used same brand as in USA. But for to do research in one supermarket Muslim Consumer Group do not have financial resourses because we are a non profit and have no regular income.

  • AOA

    If the wending machines carry same retail product you can check it under different supermarkets. I doubt the French Vanilla Hot Chocolate is Halal because of vanill or vanilla extract. If there is kosher symbol on coffee whitener and no alcohol in flavor then it Halal. I do not whether you get coffee whitener from Great Value (Wal - Mart) and N Joy brands from USA because they are Halal in USA.

  • assalamu alaykum Brother Rashiduddin, I have some questions about halal chocolates on ur web-site. It says that some chocolate bars are halal viz TWIX, SNICKERS, M & M, MARS etc. in the food basic supermarket. Can u please tell me if the word "chocolate bars" refers to the chocolate bars only, or it has been used as a general term for all products of given brands. I mean wal-mart also carry twix bars but the package says twix cookie bars, or twix candy cookie bars and same thing with M & M as they r also different products of different sizes. I'M a bit confused about it. I tried to look for chocolate bars at wal-mart but could not find it. I'll try food basics too, but it'll be a great help to me if u can clear my idea of chocolate bars on ur web-site please. waiting for reply. jazakallahu khair. - fatima
  • AOA

    When a particular product was reserached in one supermarket then it will not repeated in another supermarket. The chocolate Bar was researced at Food Basic supermarket not at Wal-mart. They bare only 27 Chocolate bars. Under chocolateonly one swiss chocolate bar appeared. Chocolate bar is referered to chocolate bar only. But you to search under category. These 27 chocolate bars are avialble in 8 supermarkets but only mentioned under Food Basic because I am the only person who did the research and make the Excel table for web developer for website development. I am the only person is doing not only in Canada but also in US. I visited 33 US supermarkets and researched for US Halal Food book by myself. We do not have reseources to hire technical people and this jon can be done by only food scientist or technologist.
