Q: Do glyceride products contain pork? (text)
Answers: All glyceride products do contain pork. This does not mean that all glycerides are permissible for Muslim consumption.
Merely due to an item not containing pork does not always call for it being halal. More often than not, when it states mono and/or diglycerides it can be correctly assumed that the product is from a pig derivative due to the extended usage and cheapness of pig within the food industry. Thus most fatwas call for it being haram.
Facts: Mono and diglycerides can contain animal and/or vegetable elements. It is our shared opinion that products derived from animals are not always halal. The costs of vegetable glycerides are usually more expensive and thus used much less than its haram counterpart.
If the ingredients list makes clear that the product only has vegetable di or mono glyceride, then in such a case it would be viewed as halal.
Allah Certainly Knows Best.
