Halal is an Arabic word, which means ‘permissible’. In terms of Islamic dietary laws, ‘Halal’ means that the nutrients have come from permissible sources, and are free of any forbidden substances (such as pigs, bones, alcohol and blood).
Other major vitamin brands such as Centrum®, and One-A-Day® usually contain gelatin. In addition, fat soluble vitamins such as vitamin A, D, E and K can come from non-halal sources.
Gelatin is used as a softening agent. Most companies use gelatin that is extracted from haram sources such as pig fat or bones because it is common and inexpensive to make. This is forbidden according to Islamic dietary laws, and is therefore haram. However, NoorVitamins™ uses gelatin from HALAL sources only. All our products are certified HALAL. No haram ingredients are used in any NoorVitamins™ products.
Some NoorVitamins™ products such as the Omega-3 contain gelatin. However, the gelatin used in NoorVitamins™ products always comes from Halal sources. All NoorVitamins™ products are certified Halal by Islamic Services of America (ISA).
Kosher vitamins are produced according to Jewish dietary laws, which are not necessarily Halal, or permissible by Islamic law. For example, some Kosher certifying organizations believe pig gelatin and some alcohols to be permissible, and therefore Kosher. All NoorVitamins™ are certified Halal and contain no ingredients forbidden by Islamic law.
