What is Halal Certification?
Halal is the Arabic word from the Quran that means “permitted” or “lawful”. On the other hand, Haram is an Arabic term that means ‘prohibited or forbidden’. As per the Quran, several products considered as haram-Alcohol, dead animal before its slaughter, blood and its by-products, pork, and stunning meat (without halal process).
In many Islamic countries, Halal Certification is given by the government. By the Islamic Council Halal certification is a process that ensures the features and quality of the products according to the rules established. Consumers especially, the Muslim community considered as a sinful act to consume without the Halal Process. They consider Halal is a process of slaughtering the meat that makes all blood get out of the body, ejecting most toxins because the heart continues to pump for a few seconds after slaughter. So there’s the minimum time needed for the meat to be treated before it can be consumed and it’s a more healthy meat to be eaten.
Having Halal Certification deems to provide safe food products for consumption. Halal ensures that food consumed by a person in their daily lives is clean, hygienic, and not detrimental to their health or well-being.
