The food we eat outside, or the food that we eat at Home, may not be permitted(Halal). A product, which has a green dot over it and signifies that it is from vegetarian source, may not be permitted(Halal). An Ayurvedic product that we use may have animal derivatives. This is due to the complexity and non-traceability of a product or ingredient. But a permitted(Halal) certified product gives the assurance that the source of the product or all ingredients has been tested in lab, verified thoroughly with stringent process, and the product is suitable for Muslim or Human consumption/use.
Also, Foods containing ingredients such as gelatin, enzymes, emulsifiers, etc. are questionable (Mushbooh) because the origin of these ingredients is not known. These ingredients can be extracted from animals and vegetables. If the ingredient is extracted from an animal which was improperly slaughtered, then it is considered Haram(not permitted). So it is better to avoid the products which contain these ingredients and is not Halal certified.
The preparation of Permitted (Halal) meat is one of the most humane and hygienic. The Permitted (Halal) method is the treatment of the animals with the utmost respect and the slaughtering with the minimum amount of pain. The slaughtering animal is totally relaxed and consequently there is very little increase in adrenaline resulting in more tender and delicious meat. The draining of the blood and the delay in removal of the spinal cord means that all bacteria and toxins are removed from the meat, as blood is the main carrier of diseases which could be passed to humans.
Apart from meat, other Permitted (Halal) Products and ingredients are also proven beneficial and healthy for human consumption/use.
