Alcohol in Flavouring of 7 up, Dr Pepper, Canada dry, Crush, Scweppes, Snapple


Dr. Pepper Snapple Group company has confirmed the use of ethyl alcohol as a solvent or carrier in the flavor of 7UP, Dr. Pepper and other product to MCG by e-mail.

"Thank you for contacting us about 7Up Regular. Your comments and inquiries are appreciated because they provide valuable feedback about our brands.

Most of the flavors in our products are designed with a carrier that is usually ethanol. The amounts are very slight, but still present".

They make the following products:

All 7 UP, Dr. Pepper, A &p; W, Canada Dry, Clamato, Country Time, Crush,  Diet Rite, Hawaiian Punch, Schweppes, Snapple, Squirt. 

Note: Ruling on Alcoholic is different from different scholars, best practice is ofcourse Taqwa or caution, but otherwise the ruling regarding the permissibility of the Non khamr "alcohols" to be used as flavourings / carriers can be found here: Alocohol Ruling,   
Question remains regardless of the ruling that whether the ehtanol they used is source from Khamr or Non Khamr...

The halal-haram "thing" is still very much in control..
