Halal has become a renowned dietary requirement in the catering world, however, not everyone knows what it means and what makes halal food halal.
So what is halal food and what does halal mean?
“Halal” essentially translates into “permissible” in English. It is associated with Islamic dietary laws and is the opposite to “haram” (which means “forbidden”). It has a lot to do with how meat is processed and prepared.
Pork is the most well-known forbidden meat. However, depending on the death of the animal and how it is processed, other meats may also be forbidden.
Let’s get down to the knitty gritty…(if you have not got a strong stomach for blood and guts then skip over this paragraph in italics now)
Halal methods of slaughtering animals or poultry (dhabiba) is by cutting the jugular vein, carotid article and windpipe.
But is halal really relevant to sweets?
It is common knowledge that many sweets contain gelatin which is a colourless, flavourless food ingredient that is produced from collagen from animal parts.
Gelatin is not halal mostly because, in most sweets, it is generally taken from pork.
Halal sweets feature beef gelatin from cows that have been slaughtered under halal-friendly methods.
