Frequently Asked Questions
1. What does Halal mean?
Halal is an Arabic word meaning lawful or permissible. When referring to food and Islamic dietary laws, halal means the source of the food is pure and came from permissible sources. If the item came from or has any traces of pork, alcohol, blood, etc., it is considered haram or unlawful/prohibited.
2. What makes Salaam Nutritionals, LLC products halal?
All of our products at Salaam Nutritionals have been certified halal through a top Islamic accrediting agency, IFANCA (Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America). A certificate was granted upon careful inspection of product preparation, procedures, ingredient list, and proper packaging. We do not use any pork (or it’s by-products), alcohol, or gelatin in any of our products. The halal certificate guarantees our products and procedures align with proper Islamic guidelines, Alhamdulillah
3. Is gelatin halal?
Gelatin can be halal if derived from permissible sources. Most gelatin is derived from animal sources, usually from a pig. This type of gelatin would be haram or unlawful/prohibited. Always look to see if the gelatin has been halal certified to ensure you’re consuming a product within Islamic guidelines.
4. Do you use any gelatin in your gummies?
No, we wanted to avoid gelatin altogether so all of our gummy based products are made from pectin. Pectin is derived from plants and is used as a gelling agent to obtain that soft chewy texture that gummies are known for.
5. Are your products just for kids?
