Please be aware that the following yogurts manufactured and sold in South Africa are not halaal (as at August 2012). Ignore the MJC and NIHT halaal logos. These yogurts contain haraam gelatin. The gelatin comes from animals that are not slaughtered by the zibah method.
• 1 Kg Low Fat Smooth – Strawberry, Vanilla and Summer Fruit Yogurts.
• 6 x 100g Low Fat Smooth Strawberry, Pear, Summer Fruit, Vanilla, Banana, Mango, Cherry and Granadilla.
It is sad that these halaal authorities are certifying products that have a haraam ingredient in them.
These companies do not know any better. If Muslims continue buying these products the companies will not remove the haraam gelatin.
We need to start pressurizing these halaal certifiers to remove their logo from these products. Even the South African Beth Din does not approve of this haraam gelatin. You will not find their logo on any of these products.
