                         Date: 21 February 1990
 


    *** INTRODUCTION *** 

    The following information was  extracted  from the Muslim Consumer Guide
    (which was published in the  newsletter  of MSA Ann Arbor, Jan-Feb. 90),
    then was posted by Muhammad B. Setiawan  (Dept. of Eng. Physics McMaster
    University), and finally collected, edited and distributed by MSA of the
    University of Manitoba, Winnipeg. 

    We hope that it be of great  use  to  you  and  that  you  will read the
    ingredient on every product before you  make your purchase. If in doubt,
    you may write to the company, they have  been very helpful in provinding
    the requested information. 



    *** CONSULTATION OF COMPANIES *** 

    Here are the results  of  consultations  done  by  MSA with various food
    companies. No  particular  questions  were  asked  on  products that may
    contain alcohol. 


    1. L.D.Schrieber Cheese Company:
    No shortening, lard, gelatin or lecithin used.
    Cow products are used = Good
    

    2. Burger King Corp.:
    Shortening used is from swine = BAD. Lard is used in buns and apple
    pie = BAD. Lecithin is used in buns = BAD/GOOD because you are not
    sure. Shakes = GOOD
    

    3. General Foods :
    Lard is used on SWAN DOWN cake mixes. Gelatin (from collagen-bearing
    tissues on any animal) is used in many products including Jell-O Brand
    Gelatin Desert = BAD
    

    4. Knox Gelatin Inc. :
    "Knox Gelatin is prepared from the protein collagen, which is extracted
    from either beef (bones and skin) or PORK (skins)" = BAD
    

    5. American Lecithin Company :
    "Our Lecithin is derived from Soybeans and is sold under the trade name
    Alcoles" = GOOD
    

    6. Nestle :
    A list was sent to MSA confirming that their products do not contain
    any animal by-product. Lechithin used in their products is derived
    from Soybeans = GOOD
    

    7. General Mills Inc.:
    Shortening similar to lard is used, also Soya lechithin is used = BAD
    (because it does not say Soya or lard and you don't know so it is
    better to avoid).
    

    8. Quaker Oats :
    Soyabeans Lecithin is used. Shortening used is from Swine. Some of
    the products are MAsa Trigo, Flako pie crust and cup cake mix.
