Is it Halal? How to Figure Out What’s In Your Food

Based on my own experience with a variety of world cultures and foreign languages, trying everything from food in the the US, Mexico, Southern Europe and the UK, I’ve developed these tips for deciphering specialty foods, international cuisine menus, and grocery items so you’ll know what to watch out for whether you’re dining out, shopping or staying in places like Britannia Hotels or fancy five star ones in New York. Wherever you are, you need to know.

That’s why I developed the MHK Eating Out page- to help you translate menus for yourself and to know if certain ingredients are halal for you or not. Be sure to visit the page, print it out and take it with you shopping or when you go to restaurants.
