Islam is the second largest religion in the world with 1.3 billion population in the world.
As per Islamic practices Muslim persons should stickle consume only halal food. Today is time of packed food items and
many time it is not exactly known weather product is acceptable or say Halal or Haram because it may contain some ingredients
which are forbidden for consumption of Muslims. Therefore concept of Certification comes, Manufactures are asked to get
their product halal certified. In Indian perspective it is more applicable for export purpose.
Muslims must also ensure that foods (particularly processed foods), as well as non-food items like cosmetics and
pharmaceuticals, are halal. Frequently, these products contain animal by-products or other ingredients that are
not permissible for Muslims to eat or use on their bodies. Foods which are not considered halal for Muslims to
consume include blood and intoxicants such as alcoholic beverages. A Muslim who would otherwise starve to
death is allowed to eat non-halal food if there is no halal food available.
