Halal baby formula in USA & Canada

This is a list of Baby Formula products labelled halal according to brother Syed Rasheeduddin Ahmed of Muslim Consumer Group. As mentioned in this Forum post here..

Halal Baby Formulas in United States of America:

New Next Step Lipil Enfamil 08-14-2008
A.R. Lipil Enfamil 08-14-2008
Gentlease Enfamil 08-14-2008
Isomil Advance Soy formula Similac 08-14-2008
Go & Grow Milk Based Formula Similac 08-14-2008
Pro Sabee Lipil Soy Infant Formula Enfamil 08-14-2008

In Canada the following baby formulas are Halal because they are free of nucleotides:

Advance Infant Formula Similac
Go & Grow Infant Formula Similac
Infant Formula with Iron Enfamil
Isomil Enfamil
A Plus + Infant Formula Enfamil
Enfa Pro Infant Formula Enfamil
Follow Up Transition Infant Formula Nestle

Above formulas are made without nucleotide are kosher certified by Orthodox Union of New York city with OUD kosher symbol. Many mothers in USA do not want to feed their children those baby formulas in which ingredients are grown on alcohol.

I'll post an update once I get the chance to do that.

  4. In Canada there is a new company called Halal Yums. They sell halal chicken flavor baby food in a dry form that's instant mix. Their website is

    You must consider infnat formulas updated between 2010 & 2011 and others are not Halal because of added Nucleotide. Canadian Halal foods website is under construction and Inshallah it will be ready by mid july 2011.
