Frequently Asked Questions
What Is Halal?
Halal is an Arabic term which means permissible. Anything a Muslim is allowed to conduct or consume is known as Halal. Halal food requires a specific process to be carried out and must be free from Haram (not permissible) ingredients. This process is conducted following specific guidelines to ensure the product is healthy and safe for consumption.
You may wonder why a Halal company like halal choice carries foods like Halal Cheese Pizza and Halal Crispy Rice; such products produced by non-Halal companies often contain gelatin or rennet. Both gelatin and rennet are haram ingredients. All meat and non-meat halal choice products are made with 100% halal ingredients.
What Are Basic Requirements For Halal?
In order for the slaughtering process to be Halal, a Muslim slaughterer verbally says the Tasmiyah prior to slaughtering the animal. The Tasmiyah is a blessing consisting of the words بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم (Bismillah; Allahu Akbar) or in English, In the name of Allah; Allah is the greatest. Then, the blood must be drained to eliminate the consumption of bloodborne germs and diseases.
All animals are in good health prior to halal choice slaughtering process. The Tasmiyah is said verbally by a highly trained Muslim blesser at the time of the slaughter. After the slaughter, the blood is drained. To ensure correct practices, halal choice is regularly audited by IFANCA. All of our sources are federally Inspected and HACCP registered.
