All foodstuffs are Halal, except those identified as Haram by Sharia, such as pigs, improperly slaughtered animals, ethanol and other toxic substances, carnivorous animals, blood, contaminated and dangerous foodstuffs, etc. The Halal industry includes not only the food industry, but also Tourism, Banking and Finance, Pharmaceuticals, Fashion and Cosmetics.
Term that includes everything that is permitted, and therefore, is beneficial and healthy for the human being, leading to an improvement in the quality of life and the reduction of health risks. It could be translated as authorized, recommended, healthy, ethical or non-abusive.
Today’s Muslims understand the term Halal as a way of life, a global and integral concept that influences and affects everyday issues such as food, hygiene, health, economy, fashion, trade and tourism.
A term that refers to anything that is prohibited, impermissible, harmful or abusive. They are considered Haram, according to Islamic law:
- The flesh of the animal found dead
- The blood
- Pork and wild boar meat, as well as their derivatives.
- Animals sacrificed without the invocation of the name of God.
- Carnivorous and scavenging animals, as well as birds with claws.
- Alcohol, alcoholic beverages, harmful or poisonous substances and toxic plants or beverages.
- Ingredients from animals or Haram products, such as pork gelatine. Additives, preservatives, colourings, flavourings, etc., produced from Haram ingredients.
- Interest, usury and abusive speculation.
- Betting on the game
- The pornography
This concept refers to everything for which its origin cannot be clearly determined or for which there are differences in its value in the different Koranic traditions, in which case each Muslim decides his or her personal position before them.
The Halal Institute prefers not to issue certifications for dubious foods, such as game, as it is quite difficult to apply our control model to them in order to offer maximum guarantees to consumers.
The Halal Institute is the entity in charge of certifying in Spain and Mexico the goods and services suitable for consumption by Muslims. With more than 15 years of experience and more than 300 clients, the Institute is dedicated to promoting a standardised development of the Halal market in Spain, through the articulation of initiatives, actions and projects that favour the integration of the Halal lifestyle as a global concept, a term that means `allowed, authorised, healthy, ethical or not abusivo´ and, therefore, beneficial for human beings, animals and the protection of the environment.
