    I have noticed a lot of food products sold locally in my country have this Halal Seal, even biscuits have the Halal sea.

    What does this certify that the sweet biscuits don't have pork? Who the hell puts pork in biscuits anyway?


    Is it true that for every product that you purchase with Halal certification a small percentage of the income goes to the Muslim foundation?

    I took a pic of a pack of crackers

    There are things like gelatin that are often derived from pork that is used in baking a fair bit. Probably has to do with such things.

    Just for shits and giggles I Googled halal pork. There is such a thing, and it's made just to fuck with Muslims. While it's a sick thing to do, must admit I laughed.

    "Developed in China, now the Brits have found a way to make pork look and taste like beef so Muslims won’t be able to tell they are actually eating pork. In China, 22 tons of this fake beef have been sold to Muslims. Yummm!"

    It's a fairly common thing for countries with a significant amount of Muslims and the Philippines have about 5 million of them.

    It means the animal was killed by a desert wizard who cast magic on it.

    There is a middle eastern store near me that has a halal butcher shop inside. Their meat is high-quality and pretty cheap. I like to go there and load up if I'm doing a cookout or party.

    I want to know if there is truth about corporations having to pay the Islamic council so they put the seal on their products.

    Ah that explains why a lot Muslims work at the Kosher store in France that got shot up by ISIS. Like the Muslim guy who led people to safety.

    Sometimes after going to the dispensary I eat at a halal food truck. It's pretty good.

    As far as meat goes it means the animal was slaughtered under islamic rights. For non meat products it means it is free of any product that are considered haram.

    Essentially yes. Halal food is just prepared a particular way to consider it "clean". You really lose nothing out of a product being halal. For whatever reason I tend to enjoy legitimate halal restaurants more than non. But that could just be spices and quality of my particular area :)

    Yes. It just lets them know that it's good to eat.
