Haram list Updated Mar-2010

 Haram / Mushbooh list Mar -2010

Any of the following ingredients can possibly be Haram or are Mushbooh.. research / investigation is needed on the part of the consumer to call / email the manufacture/ producer of the product in question and ask if the problem ingredient fits into the criteria that would make it haraam for us to consume....

We are working on a list of article which can be clicked from this list to demonstrate how each one of these ingredients could possibly be a source of concern..

NOTE:- something to worry about is the newer form of labelling where a bunch of ingredients are categorized into a lump sum. Such as artificial flavours, Natural Flavours, Modified milk ingredient(S)..... something to watch out for..

Turmeric Haram

Syed Rasheeduddin Ahmed said...

A Muslim consumer from Canada has asked us the Halal status of Acetic Acid, we said it is a Halal ingredient but he referred to your website and it said it is under Haram list. We told him that vinegar is made of vinegar and water obtained by Aceto fermentation of alcohol by Aceto bacter bacteria. We went through your list and suggested that the following ingredients are fall into Halal category. If you like you can eliminate these Halal list of ingredients from Haram list.
• Acetic Acid
• Alpha Amylase
• Amylase
• Amylopectin (Polysaccharides)
• Calcium Lactate
• Calcium propionate
• Chelate
• Curcumin
• Enrichment (Enrichment present in flour, corn and all bakery product is Halal in USA/Canada)
• Ethyl Vanillin
• Ethylene Oxide
• Folic Acid (Part of Halal enrichment of all flours only)
• Gum Tragacanth
• Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein (Hvp)
• Inositol
• Invertase (Invertin)
• Lactic acid
• Lecithin
• Limit Dextrin
• Niacin (Part of Halal enrichment of all flours only)
• Polyunsaturated
• Potassium propionate
• Prop ionic Acid
• Protease
• Riboflavin (Part of Halal enrichment of all flours only)
• Sodium salt
• Tartaric Acid (Tartar Acid and Cream of Tartar is Halal in USA and Canada because they are made from unfermented grapes)
• Thiamin (Part of Halal enrichment of all flours only)
• Vanillin
• Vegetable Shortening
• Vinegar
If you need the basis of Halal status ingredients then we can provide the technical basis.

Turmeric for food companies are not available in 100%. They add emulsifier Polysorbate 80 as a processing aid.
