[Q 293] Is Vanilla Extract Halal?


Mufti sahab!! Is Vanilla extract halal?

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

الجواب بون الملك الوهاب اللهم هداية الحق والصواب


According to our information, Vanilla extract contains alcohol. Scholars have not permitted the use of food and drink items containing alcohol (except for medicines). Therefore, it should be avoided from this perspective.

However, if in a certain region, the consumption of items containing alcohol becomes common practice among the Muslim public and Ulama (scholars) , then its use will not be considered sinful.
