Oreo Cookies are not Halal?
[UPDATE]: Whoo hoo..Alhumdulilah, so my cousin known as Angry Brown Guy contacted Nabisco and he got a response, they said as long as the North American Oreo product is not “Reduced Fat” or of the “Sugar Free” variety then it’s good to go (halal).
See the images below for proof…thanks Faraz!!
Before you start throwing Oreo cookies at me, check this out, it’s on their UK corporate website. Not sure how well researched this is from Muslim scholars, but if anyone has more insight on this please share it.
It might specific to markets outside of U.S., anyways click on the following link to contact Nabisco/Oreo.
Random Fact: The Oreo cookie has been America’s most popular cookie since it was introduced in 1912. More than 345 billion Oreo cookies have been consumed to date. More than 7.5 billion Oreo cookies are consumed each year, which comes out to 625 million per month and 20.5 million per day.
