Muslims in North America have a historic opportunity. The opportunity is to have their culture recognized and their dietary needs acknowledged. Kraft Foods, the largest food company in North America, is reaching out to Muslims by creating recipes that can be used daily or for various Islamic celebrations.

In developing these recipes, Kraft's culinary professionals worked closely with Muslims to better understand Muslim culture and religion, how these two elements relate to food and where Kraft products could become part of a daily Halal diet. Kraft has ensured that the ingredients in the Kraft products included in these recipes meet Islamic dietary laws.

ACTION REQUESTED:

Please take a moment and provide feedback on the recipes and Kraft's efforts to develop recipes that are relevant to Muslims.

Your feedback is important and will help ensure future development of products and ideas for the Muslim market!

Recipes are based on ingredients available in North America.

  1. erum from united states

    good recipe,but i wonder if kraft parmesane cheese is halal or not ?i am big fan of italian

    foods but can;t find microbial,vegeterian or halal parmesan cheese.

  2. Cheri Brown from USA

    I enjoy some of Kraft products. I think it would be great that Kraft join into our halal way of life. As a mother I have to change my recipes constantly and I used to subscripe to the Kraft recipes magazine but they have pork products as well and that and I had to turn to my Ummah to stick with my requirements to Islam.

    I think it would benefit the Kraft Corporation and the Muslims as a whole for the American Muslims who have less websites and reference for our food ideas and recipes.

    I thank Allah

    IslamCity for assisting Kraft foods to assist the Muslim Ummah!

    Shukrun Allah!

  5. Abdullah from USA

    I am looking for KRAFT Ranch dressings status as halal, I was not able to find any information regarding its status. If there is some place where they can provide this information will help all.

  6. Adeelah Nasir from Guyana

    Most of the cheeses that are made by Kraft are not considered halaal by most persons, including me. If they were to be made using microbial enzymes, then Muslims such as myself would be able to consume them. I love to cook and would love to be able to eat all those different types of cheeses.

  7. ruwaida from south africa

    Hi,

    I just wanted to know if parmesan cheese is Halal.

    From my understanding it contains rennet/or pepsin

    which makes it unsuitable for Muslims.Please advice.

    would kraft Canada have the same ingredients ?

    Thanks for the deliciously halal recipes for muslims like us to try.However,it would be even better if you can give us the cake and pastries recipes which can be halal to eat too.This is because I noticed most of these recipes uses alchoholic drinks and gelatin for longer preservation and taste.If you can provide us with the substitution products to get the same taste and preservation like them will be much appreciated.Thank you again.

    Bissalam

  25. Susan Issolah from USA

    Thank you all so much for these wonderful recipes. I did not see them until day, 02-02-07, but I will use them throughout the year. Thank you, Kraft, for being open minded and caring enough for the Muslim community.

  26. Humera Khalil from USA

    Hello,

    I am a muslim american. I do subscribe to kraft foods magazine, and receive your newsletter. I love these publications, they make life easier! But most of the times I have to manipulate or skip recipes, because they are not according to our dietary restrictions, 'halal'. I was positively surprised to find these halal recipes on islamicity.com. I hope you continue to come up with similar recipes. I am a great believer in finding shortcuts when preparing meals, and Kraft has given me many great ideas. Thanks,

    Humera Khalil

  27. farah from USA

    this is excellent, most of us love these products but endup buying imported varieties of kraft halal products from ethnic grocers.i'm sure this will not only save time for us but alsonboost kraft's sales.

  28. kathryn syed from united states

    Thank you so much for the recipes;but, most of all for acknowleding our traditions... Wishing your company even greater success - Kathryn

  29. Amy Hossain from USA

    Bismillahir rahmanir rahim.

    I feel honored that Kraft would spend their time and money to try and figure out what Muslims might eat.

    I feel these recipes cater to the young American born Muslim population in perhaps in their college years or early year of marriage. They might be more familiar with the ingredients used such as refrigerated crescent rolls and the idea of a sweet spread or dip for finger foods.

    There are traditional recipes for Ramadan that vary from country to country, as well as variations in families within those countries. Perhaps Kraft has already done this, but I think it might be beneficial to find HEALTHY ways (no hydrogenated oils, fructose, corn syrup, etc) to package these dishes that are already being homemade. Perhaps offering them in freezer packaging so that it is easy to serve when you have parties. And parties happen quite often during Ramadan and other holidays. It is in these times that prepackaged food makes it easier on the cook in the family.

    To be completely honest I wouldn't personally use any of the recipes listed. But I was still pleased to see the innovative recipes with nods to traditional ingredients. I feel that this is a good start. Or perhaps its just that I'm not in the target market that Kraft is aiming for. I prefer to cook food made from scratch without chemicals and added "flavors", etc. But I wish Kraft the best of luck with their endeavor. May Allah bless them for their efforts.

  30. R. Ali from USA

    It's great to see mainstream companies like Kraft creating recipes geared towards muslim consumers. The recipes look tasty, and easy to prepare. Good work Kraft!

  31. Shahla Syed from USA

    The fig crescents look wonderful and I really would like to try them out at my next Eid party! In general, I like my entrees to have a little bit of kick in them (in terms of spice) so I would recommend addendums to the recipes to make them spicy without losing the flavor of the dish. The fatoush looks really great too, so I might try that as well. Thanks for doing this, and good luck!

  32. Nahid Hussain from USA

    Great recipes, easy to prepare.

    Thanks for reaching out and considering our dietary regulations in these recipes.

    It would be great if you could make some frozen dinners with halal meat and chicken...

    Maybe some day soon..

  33. fiaz from usa

    Easy Baked Parmesan Meatballs

    when will it be available?

  34. Kulsum Saleem from USA

    These recipes are great! It great to see one of US's largest food company's to reach out American Muslim's diet needs. I would love to see more recipes with lamb and chicken.

    I am excited about this.

  35. Annette Khan from USA

    Thanks! I do use Kraft products -- and these look like easy-to-prepare versions of some of the foods our friends make during Ramadan.

  36. Tambra Limpus from USA

    Thanks, I will use all of these...keep them coming.

  37. Malick Diaw from USA

    We encourage Kraft Food and wish them a great success.

  38. Safa Sankari from USA

    These recipes are wonderful! Creative, yet simple ideas that are in que with Islamic culture. Thank you and I look forward to hearing about Halal products from Kraft!

  39. Afeefa from USA

    I really like the idea to put figs into these rolls. Great recipe. However, I don't necessarily believe that putting the mix into crescent rolls is a good idea. Given that some believe (the legend, or fact) that bakers came up with crescent-shaped rolls (or croissants) to commemorate victory over the Muslim rulers of Turkey at one point in time, some Muslims might find it highly inappropriate to "eat a crescent."

    Other shapes (e.g. straight rolls) might be equally tasty and more politically sensitive alternatives.

  40. Afeefa from USA

    This is great! I look forward to having it at my Iftar parties next year!

  41. Nabeel from USA

    Excellent. Very appealing to 1.4 Billion Muslim.

    I will use it.

  42. almas from usa

    I think that it is wonderful that kraft foods is trying to develop recipes that muslims can include in their daily diet. It is important that muslims provide positive feedback to kraft foods so that other food companies also try to cater to the needs of the muslim community.

  43. pari from Canada

    Thanks for coming up with these great recipes! They sound delicious! This is a great idea and we appreciate all the time and effort put into coming up with these recipes. I'm sure they will be appreciated by Muslims and non-Muslims alike!

    This is a fabulous and much appreciated effort on Kraft's part. I love the New Moon Fig Pastries. I receive the Kraft Foods Recipe book every so often in the mail. I would love it if they had a recipe book with all the halal recipes.

  46. imran from USA

    I would like to make some very practical and good suggestions regarding what Krafts is making if i knew what was included and still not yet included to be produced for Muslim community. I am an excellent cook and i guarantee you I know few things which are very easy to make, less time consuming and most delicious and healthy as well. Please do contact me. Thank you !

  51. Iqra from USA

    I just found out about these Kraft food products/recipes and am ecstatic! I am going to tell my Mother as soon as she gets home and we are definitely going shopping. I have been waiting for something like this and I long for Halal aisles like the many Kosher ones I see. Thank you Kraft! You dont know how much this means to us. May God bless you.

  52. samira suhail from usa

    we really appreciateyour effort for coming up with the recipes for Muslims.No one else did it so for.

  53. shameem from usa

    This tang drink was great. A punch is always necessary at dinners and luncheon etc. It also has a different twist with the apricot. I am using at our next dinner.

  54. shameem from usa

    This dip recipe was wonderful. Again easy to make and delicious. It hits the spot.

  55. shameem from usa

    Great recipes. I have tried the food that was prepared by the recipes and it was FABULOUS. The recipes are easy to follow and unique. The used staple ethnic foods to achieve a traditional flare in cooking.

    Shameem

  56. Sacdiya from USA

    This is really impressive, it is about time for food companies especially the big companies like Kraft foods to acknowledge for Muslim needs and consider producing Halal products for Muslims. Alhamdulilaah, it is going to be convenient for our community to be able to go to a common supermarket and easily buy Halal products. I will make sure to spread the good news and let my family and friends know about Kraft Halal Recipes. I cannot wait to taste those dishes, it looks delicious.

    Thank You!

  57. Rasheedah Rabb from usa

    It is a blessing that Kraft has decided to enter into the very lucretive market "Halal". One must also take into consideration the Corn Syrup, Hydrogenated and Partially Hydrogenated Oils (Transfat) and if the flours are Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO). Additives and preservatives are ingredients contained in the refrigerated rolls. We must be very careful if we desire to use recipes. Try to find healthy substitutes for questionable ingredients.

  58. Nazir Razvi from USA

    The recipes were really good. The Spinach Roll Ups & Moon Fig Pastries - Thanks.

  59. Sherine Osman from USA

    I think this is wonderful! I love the fact that the recipes caters to muslims but also to Ramadan. They look very simple, delicious, and the presentation is wonderful. Thank you!

  60. Amina Jaffer-Mohsin from usa

    Thank you for the recipes! How creative to make new cressecent moon pastries and date dips-I can't wait to try them!

  61. Ejaz Ahmed from USA

    Kudos to Kraft for offering Halal Recipes for all occasions to Muslims everywhere. They sound delicious! I will try them and also share these with friends and family members.

    Congratulations to Kraft staff and management for their initiative in bringing halal foods to the mainstream market.

    Ejaz Ahmed

  62. Nasreen Kamal from Canada

    I am very pleased to know that Kraft is working on Halal recipies for muslims I will surely support Kraft and buy Kraft products in future.

  63. Magdalen Ali from USA

    PHILADELPHIA Garden Vegetable Light Cream Cheese Spread, does it contain natural and artifical flavor, if so what is the contents.

  64. Magdalena ali from USA

    Hi, does the Zesty italian dressing contains any animal or alcohol. If there is artifical and natural flavors what are the contents. Was alcohol used for extractions. What other dressing are there that I may be able to use.

  65. Magdalena Ali from USA

    Hi, I would like to know if the Kraft Grated Parmesan Cheese contains any rennet or any animal ingredints. How was the cheese made.

  66. Khalid Faridi from Kuwait

    Thank you for starting this concept of Halal Recipe. However, since early eighties Kraft processed food products especially Cheese and Spread Cheese have been in controversy. It was learnt that Kraft uses Pig related products in it process of manufacturing such edibles. Before launching hala recipe, it would do immense good if Kraft could verify, reject or conform to such allegations. Trust me, it has been long , almost twenty years since I last tasted the best cheese available in the market. And not only that, I make sure I don't buy, supply or permit anyone to eat it in my knowledge.

  67. SHARIFUL from Bangladesh

    I would like to thank the initiative taken by the Kraft Foods Company. It can help reduce differences and can also help having better relations amongst people of various faiths. Kraft Foods Company, please keep it up.

    I wish you all the very best.

    Shariful

  68. Noor Latiff from USA

    These are great recipes. Our family looks forward to more of this great recipes. We also would encourage Kraft to use the same idea towards making and marketing their cheese and other dairy and non-dairy products so Muslims in USA can enjoy them without any doubts.

  69. Farheen from USA (parents from pakistan and india)

    Great job!

    Finally, someone catering to the unaddressed needs of a sizeable community here in the US... thanks for the effort, and all the recipes look good so far...

    Also, it would be great to see a line of Halal products in mainstream grocery stores, or certain Kraft products marked as being "Halal" (just like the Kosher mark), easily available.

  70. Rafia Akhtar from Canada

    I think the idea of having such recipes that cater to halal foods from Kraft is absolutely wonderful.

  71. NadimK from USA

    Thanks for the excellent receipes and will defintely try some of these soon. Keep it up

    thanks once again

    Nadim

  72. samina from usa

    Are all kraft grated cheeses without any animal ingredients i.e any meat derived ingredients? There is no UD mark on these packs. These symbols are invaluable when we shop as they tell us that there are no meat derived animal products and only dairy present. What I specifically want to know is the source of the enzymes in these cheeses. Thank you for your effort in helping make our shopping easy for us.

  73. F Hussain from usa

    I love the new moon fig pastries. They are very tasty and the name has specific significance for the Eid Holiday. Thanks.

    help my daughter-in-law knows only chicken(:) also do you where to purchase smoked turkey parts in the usa

  75. Borhan Uddin from USA

    I really aprecciate the effort and time put into such a project, its a great job you're doing. I would just like to say that if Kraft could also do such work in bringing basic products (such as cheese, etc.) with Halal certifications, that would be even better. Also, almost every Muslim I know would buy such products. Thank you.

  76. shamila from united states

    The recipe looked yummy!! I would love to make some and serve them to my guests.

  77. Salaam Kraft! from USA

    Thanks for taking such an interest in us and our community. I would love to see more recipes, especially ones that include some chicken and fish. Excellent idea.

  78. Shaza Khan from USA

    This recipe looks delicious! I can't wait to try it for myself. As a whole, all of the "halal" recipes posted by Kraft are a great effort on the company's behalf to reach out to its Muslim consumers. We appreciate the recognition and acknowledgement of our unique tastes, foods, and customs and are happy to have Kraft embrace them!

  79. Don Khan from USA

    I have avoided Kraft products because I read that the rennet used in cheeses is not from halal sources. I see some of these recipies use Kraft cheese. Did anyone verify that the Parmesian, cheddaer, and cream cheese are halal?

  80. farah fatima from usa

    very informative receipes, i would like to see kraft make cheese with micorbial enzymes and not using any animal products. thank you

  81. afida from US

    The recipes are excellent, easy and very tasty. Keep up the good cooking

  82. Moufida Banawi-O'Connor from [email protected]

    I tried a few of the recipes and they tasted great. I felt confident using any of the ingredients and felt relieved I did not have to research whether they contain any non-halal ingredients or not. Thanks for being so considerate of our culture and making us feel we're part of this great community living together in the US.

  83. Dana Saad from USA-Dearborn

    I would be greatly interested in the products.

  84. Afroze from USA

    Great recipes,would like to know if all yr cheese products r halal

  85. Mamda Sira from US

    Thank you for making recipes especially for the Muslim community. I cant wait to try them! They seem delicious. Thanks!

  86. Kulsum Ali from USA

    i would like to see more dishes added with halal meat. thanks!

  87. Nassiya Ali from USA

    Thank you Kraft for recognizing the Muslim holiday Eid. Please send some more recipes

  88. Isabelle Ettayebi from USA

    Thank you so much for reaching out to the Muslim community and preparing these recipes. I will definitely keep this action in mind next time I head to the grocery store! Please provide us with more drink recipes. It is so refreshing to get recipes for non-alcoholic beverages.

    Maybe you could also think of a symbol (similar to the jewis (k) )that you could apply on your products to certify they do not contain pork, animal gelatin....

    Thank you.

    Isabelle Ettayebi

  89. thamreen siddiqui from USA

    Hello,

    First of all I would like to thank you for making efforts to comply with our beliefs as well.

    Second, it would be AWESOME if you guys started making this Zabiha Halal -- which means ingredients are pork free and meats are islamically slaughtered.

    Thanks so much for your efforts - hope to see a change soon.

  90. Reshma Farukhi from U.S

    I think your recipes are great and are quick and easy to make.During Ramadhan we make several sweet dishes and distribute among family and friends. It is a month of sharing and giving.

    Job Well Done

  91. Maheen Farooqi from United States

    I absolutely loved your Halal Recipes for all occassions! I plan on

    forwarding this to my friends and family! Thank you.

  92. khadijah from USA

    I would like to thank profusely Kraft for understanding that the demographics of America is changing and reaching out to the muslims in the USA. As both a Muslim and an American, I hope that your company leads other companies realizing that untaped potential and revenue of the American Muslim dollars.

  93. Nasrin Brebbia from USA

    I would like to see more Muslim recipes. It is greatr to see. Maybe Kraft can come out with some halal products also. The Muslim Community would welcome it. You would see your profits rise.

    Salam,

    Nasrin Ansari-Brebbia

  94. arusa mannan from canada

    Thank you, Kraft! How amazing it is to be recognized as part of the North Amarican mosaic. I am thrilled with this effort and will look forward to even more food ideas every Ramadan and Eid. It is important not to lose too many nutrients with eating and drinking restrictions during this month. I often see people breaking their fasts with heavy, rich foods that lead to a sudden sense of lethargy and fatigue. Since people also desire to spend long hours of the night in prayers it would be more beneficial to eat light, healthy meals that will provide energy and rejuvenate the body. I've always loved trying all your recipes because of their ease and wholesomeness. Now these recipes will also be culturally relevant! With Kraft's help I look forward to many healthy Ramadans.

    Sincerely,

    Arusa

  95. mahnaz rizvi from usa

    This is wonderful, such a large company promoting halal recipes!!!

    Just waiting for HALAL marshamallow cereal.

  96. Magda from USA

    Wonderful Idea - it would be great to see halal meat available in some of the larger chain stores, and eventually a section in the grocery stores dedicated to halal products, just as there are currently for kosher and vegetarian, but this is a great first start. There would most certainly be a huge market for cost-effective halal foods.

  97. A Khan from US

    Finally someone realized there is a huge potential for bussiness among muslim consumers. As Kosher market has been for years it is time for Halal and Zabeebah markets. Even meat items made from Zabeehah meats from muslim farms with animals slaughtered according to islamic way will create huge profits and bussiness for Kraft or other companies who wish to tap this area.

  98. Haroon Ahmed from HARRIS

    We as a community appreciate the Initiative.We want more...is there a spicy variant available

  99. Jennifer Calvo from USA

    I think these recipes are great! Keep up the good work!

  100. sarwet from usa

    I love the idea that the muslims, though a minorty are finally being heard as a worthy consumer. I always by Kraft products that I can, and will continue to support any company that finally recognizes the power of my penny!!!

    I am especially excited about the recipe for halal parmesan meatballs.

  101. Aliya from USA

    Great recipes for Ramadan and Eid...simple and quick enough for my children to help with and very creative. Keep up the good work!

  102. nilofer gadatia from U.S.

    Thank you,Kraft Foods, for catering to Muslim customers. This is excellent. Can't wait to try these recipes. Keep up the good work!

    It would be nice if these recipes were contained in a recipe book like the ones you have for kids snacks and lunches:)

  103. Diane from usa

    The Kraft Halal recipes sound delicious and easy to make. Thank you for making recipes for our Muslim community.

  104. Rosy Ahmed from USA

    It's very exciting to see a major company like Kraft Foods take interest in Halal/Islamic foods. The recipes sound great....I'm definitely going to try making some of them!

  105. kristina bacile from usa

    I thank Kraft for acknowledging the growing Muslim community and for providing us with fresh, new and easy twists on many of our traditional recipes.

  106. Adnan from USA

    Great start! I encourage and support this action. Catering to the Muslim population is a great business decision as well as opening a lot of doors in terms of creative food items for us. Thank you.

  107. Janara S. from USA

    I would like to thanks Craft for such a great initiative. You offered some really great recipies with our religion in mind.

  108. Aminah from USA

    Thanks for these tasty and delicious recipes. They will really help in making our holidays more festive!

  109. Nasir A from US

    Yes, it was very nice of Kraft

    Perhaps next year they can make public of their foods in the Middle East stores.

  110. Shanaaz Taujoo from USA

    I commend you on starting to create Halal meals. There are many single Muslim people who study or work and do not have time to prepare meals, especially during Ramadan. Great idea!!

  111. Amena from usa

    Love this website and the food recipies.

    appreciate kraft for giving us halaal recipies.

  112. nuzhat shaikh from Canada

    I definitely would be interested any your halal recipes.

  113. safa soliman from usa

    I think it will be mutually beneficial for the vendor and the consumer.

    I am personally a very busy person and having this variety of food would definately encourage me to buy.

    I presently pay someone to parepare this kind of food for me. it is very costly and I have to drive for one hour and get my food every two weeks. having it available and fresh would be a great idea

    i hope you really go through wiit it

    thank you for the thought

  114. safa soliman from usa

    I know for a fact that it tastes great. I put them together on a toast and I eat them

  115. Zainab from USA

    Thank you so much for posting the delicious KRAFT recipes... I get the kraft magazine at home and I am so excited that my religion and special holiday were included on your website.

  116. Mary Hasan from USA

    I was very excited to read this article and recipes. I have been under the impression that Kraft products were not necessarily Halal.

  117. Miriam Soliman from U.S.A

    The recipes sound delicious 🙂 I cant wait to make the meatballs and the spinach rolls. This is a great idea and effort from Kraft and those who are assisting... continue the good work!

  118. rahilya napoli from uk

    Excellent! Especially the Date with cream cheese, the fatoush salad, and the spinach phyllos. The meatballs look good except i dont eat meat as a preference not because its not islamic (its very islamic masha'allah).

    Thank you

  119. Wadia Alwan from USA

    Appreciate Kraft providing these recipes in time for Eid. I definitely will use try them. Thank you Islami City for being the conduit.

  120. Arif M. Shaoib, MD from USA

    I am happy to read this news. It is about time that these big companies realize that Muslims are a big part of the US culture. I hope we see a similar trend from card makers as you never find a card for Eid or other Islamic holidays but you see plenty for Jewish and Christian holidays.

  121. Farah from Canada

    Asalaamualikum,

    I think it is a great idea that Kraft has initiated a section for Islamic/Halal Recipes. The part that made me feel good was when I read the descriptions of the recipes. Brings us muslims one step closer to building an understanding with the non-muslims and helping them recognize our culture and religion.

  122. mina from USA

    I am very pleased kraft is makeing halal things for muslims I know alot of people who would love to buy kraft products especially cheese products but often it is not halal I am sure if they made thier cheese halal they would get alot of business and some kind of symbol would be nice like an "H" for halal or something.

  123. Noor Elsheikh from USA

    Thank You so much i have been looking for some reciepts which are hard to find in the USA

  124. nasiruddin from u.s.a.

    please give the name of the product that you developed.

  125. Deanna from united states

    I think that it is great to incorporate american into Islam. This common ground may open the door for greater understanding and help get dialogue started. And the recipes are fun and easy.

  126. Al Keval from Canada

    Couldnt have thought of a better pastry recipe, thanks Kraft and Islamicity!!!

  127. Fouad Jomaa from Canada

    Jazzak Allah Khairun for this. This is a great idea! I like the fact that we are working with industry to serve the muslim community here in North America. I also like the fact that there is an ethnic twist to it. I can't wait to try some of these recipes out!

  128. Denise Small from USA

    Thanks for including Muslim recipes. I know many muslim women who buy Kraft products, so I'm glad you decided to be inclusive. Thanks.

  129. Zain from USA

    I think it's great that you offer recipe ideas that cater to your Muslim customers. It definitely increases my loyalty to the Kraft brand.

  130. T. Aydin from U.S.A.

    It is wonderful that a national company is recognizing the needs of a rapidly growing religion. They will definitely make a mark for themselves by geering their research on this market which is growing exponentially.

  131. Saima Abbasi from United States

    Awesome and easy to follow recipe!! These crescents would be great with a cup of tea. I personally believe that more people will eat these crescents if there is no sugar coating. Thanks.

  132. Diana (Kausar) Mian from usa

    Some of the receipes look very tempting.

    Is Kraft going to put "h" on their products so we know that they are Halal? I already subscribe to the Kraft magazine they send, it is very good.

    If they could provide some receipes for "fun" foods for children that of course are halal.

    It is so uplifting to have such a large and well know name as Kraft to take an interest in us.

    sincerely,

  133. Lyn from USA

    Though I am not a Muslim, i am *very* glad to see that there are compainies who are willing to address the need for more common recipes for those faiths other than those that are Judeo-Christian.

    I am a student of Islam, and am encouraged in life when I read the Koran and the Holy words. Is is striking when when reads the Holy Books of other faiths ... one learns the culture and the mores.

    Again, thank you. I will be using these recipes myself ... if they taste as good as they look and sound, I am sure I will be pleased!

  134. Gabriel Slape from USA

    Excellent ideas. My wife and I loved them all. Please continue to work with groups like Kraft Foods to bring us more content like this.

  135. Mary from USA

    Thank you for developing and posting these recipes. I haven't tried them yet, but certainly appreciate the gesture. They look simple enough and tasty. It is nice of Kraft to promote Halal foods/recipes. This is what the majority of Muslims are doing; trying to provide nourishment for family and friends, so it is nice to have that recognized.

  136. Syed from India

    I just want to thank Kraft Foods for their kind gesture to recognize the Muslim culture and the Muslim eating habits where Halal food is the norm.

    May Allah bless your company.

    Greatly appreciate it. This start would also encourage Non-Muslims to acquire these hygienic eating habits.

    Syed Sajid.

  137. Muhammad Tariq Mughal from USA

    I recently visited Islamicity.com and found out about these receipes from Kraft related to Ramadhan and Muslims. I think it an historic event, that such a great corproation as KRAFT has recognized that Muslims are a part of this society and hae special needs when it comes to food. I admire the efforts by the Krafts food engineers and flavor developers to explore the Islamic Food Flavors. Any time any business explores a new avenue, there is a risk or non success, and Kraft has taken that risk. But i think this risk will be worth taking once the word is out there and Muslims know about these efforts by Kraft, they will appreciate it.

    Thanks and Good Job.

    May Allah bless all those involved in this effort and thinking.

    -Tariq-

  138. Alex from USA

    These recipes are very nice. I tried the Fattoush it turned out great. I am glad to see Kraft is willing to consider Muslim food needs. Halal Jell-O and Marshmallows would be a big hit with Muslims.

  139. Emilie from USA

    I appreciate Kraft's interest in catering to the muslim dietary restrictions. What I really would like to Kraft bring to the market are halal Kraft Cheese, halal Mac & Cheese, and Halal Marshmallows. The principal restriction being: Pork based gelatine and pork based enzymes.

    Thank you.

  140. Maryah from USA

    Nice and simple, takes the work out of researching ingredients and trying to decide what is halal.

    Thank you Kraft Foods, for your Love and commitment to US muslims. Yes, we are americans too and would like to feel welcomed as you have welcomed us. I look forward to shopping American, many of us have to go out of the country for halal products!

  141. fariha from U.S.A

    i was watching a show on FOODNETWORK... and they were showing they making of parmesan cheese. it contains the unhalal enzyme:rennet. so i just wanted to inform you that ALL kraft cheese is unhalal

  142. Tammy Ganney from Canada

    I am soo thankful that you posted these recipes............I am dating a Muslim ( and I want to be able to cook for him ) now I will be able to make a few dishes...........with tomorrow being the end OF RAMADAN and their celebration of EID..........I was just saying there should be somebody who posts recipes.......he is from Lebanon......so if there are more recipes please contact me............THANK U

  143. lori gray from us

    I'm very pleased that an american food company is going to recognize the importance of our way of eating.Way to go Kraft!!!

  144. Aatir Butt from Canada

    Great recipes! Thank you Kraft for making the effort to create the Halal Recipes for Ramadan & Eid. You've won yourself a loyal customer!

  145. brenda ahmed from usa

    I was so suprised and greatfull for the recipes. Thank you Kraft, from the depths of my heart. Thank You. Many of these recipes will be on the table this EID for my family. I look forward to other exciting recipes. Thanks Again.

  146. Donna Shaikh from USA

    These all look like easy to make, good recipes!

    All the foods look very appetizing too!

  147. Khaleelah Hasan from USA

    This is a blessing to have a food manufacturer finally realize the present and future buying power of Muslims in our country. The receipes are great, easy to prepare and very delicious. We need more!

  148. Aziza Keval from USA

    I like these recipes. Hope you can give me some fish, vegetable and poultry recipes too. I appreciate Kraft for taking this lead and I will support Kraft in its endeavors. Thank you again

  149. Mustafa Al-Sabawi from Canada

    I would like to personally thank Kraft for providing alternatives to the Muslim community at Large.

    These recipes are also great for business. Please continue to provide such recipes.

  150. V. Bahiyyah Muhammad from USA

    Thank you for your interest in our religion and dietary requirements. Could you take it one step furhter and develop recipes for diabetic Muslims?

  151. Ihtishaam from USA

    Thank you so much for the great ideas, my family will try them soon. Please think about listing all Kraft products that would conform to halaal standards and make that list available so we consumers could use that in grocery shopping. We would also love to see Kraft market halaal foods and would be very supportive of it. thanks

  152. Siddique Khateeb from USA

    This is a wonderful sweet news for the Muslims across USA who depend on "Halal" certified food products.

    I strongly support this endeavour and i'm sure will be a run-away success!

  153. moona from US

    It think it's awesome Kraft is recognizing the Muslim culture and identity in these recipes. They look delicious and even after Ramadan I look forward to making them.

  154. Rachecl Taifi from USA

    More of these halal recipes would be very helpful and appreciated!

  155. AIDA GUEYE from USA

    This is a great idea for muslims who very often have enormous difficulties finding recipes that suits their religious demands.

    Congratulations for such a great innovation!!!

    Many thanks!!!

  156. Naheed Sheikh from USA

    Great recipes. Thank you. Please do this every year. You've got my attention!!!

  157. vidalena husamudeen from USA

    Kraft has always been a part of my families grocery list and I appreciate their willingness to recognize the needs/tastes of all of their customers.

  158. vidalena husamudeen from USA

    I tried the date, honey and cream cheese recipe and truly enjoyed it and it gave me anoather way to prepare and serve my date. I also restuffed my larger date with the spread.

  159. Deana Boyce Martin from USA

    Thank you sincerely for the delightful receipts.

  160. Tyrone Pettway Sr. from US

    Thank you so much for creating a menu formuslims in the products that you offer!!! It is very pleasing to see your company take the steps it has for our community.May God bless you all.

  161. Aisha Bhatti from USA

    I loved the recipes!It would be great to have a line of Halal products from a trusted name like KRAFT.I am really excited about the future of the avaialblitity of Halal foods!!Thanks Kraft!!

  162. SEMA COLAK from USA

    I BELIEVE THIS IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    THIS IS GREAT - TO BE ABLE TO GO TO THE SUPERMARKET AND

    TO KNOW THAT AMERICAN PRODUCTS WILL BE HALAL. I WISH

    THAT THESE COMPANIES WILL CONTINUE TO EXPAND ALL THEIR

    PRODUCTS TO BECOME HALAL AND ACTUALLY PUT A HALAL

    STICKER OR MARKER ON THEIR PRODUCTS. THIS WILL OPEN

    NEW DOORS FOR US AND FOR THESE COMPANIES. THANK YOU

    SO MUCH FOR ALL YOUR HELP AND THE RECIPES ARE GREAT. I

    WILL DEFINATELY TRY THEM. THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN.

  163. Rooks from Canada

    The cheese in all the recipees has to be halal too.

    Is Kraft cheese halal?

    Thanks.

  164. ali choate from trinidad and tobago

    spinach logs is great closest to spinach pie,i am a cook and waiter by profession i know foods.

  165. aj sheikh from usa

    Great the corporation is seeing$$ sign. This will encourage more to recognize islamic values. Any item is availble soon in market.

  166. Sult from US

    I read the recepies and they look easy make and delecious to eat inshallah (GodWilling) I am gonna make them. I appreciate Krafts effort in this regards.

    Thanks

    Sult

  167. Aliyu Gambo Gumel from Nigeria

    This is a welcome development and should be encouraged by all muslims. We need halal food every where especially where sizeable number of muslim population exists.

  168. Roxanne Noorzady from U.S.A.

    I think these recipies are a SUPERB idea! I thank Kraft for acknowledging Muslims, our culture, and dietery laws. It's rare to find companies in America who want to reach out to Muslims by creating products in order to target them. It seems that we can often find Jewish/kosher products all year round in American grocery stores, and more so during Jewish holidays. It's wonderful for Muslims to have the same available to them. Thanks again, Kraft!

  169. Talha Khalid from Canada

    What an excellent idea! Finally, a major food manufacturer has taken the lead step in catering to the Halal market. The recipes here are excellent, and the fact that all the ingredients are assured to be Halal takes a tremendous burden off the Muslim mind.

  170. Carrie Doulfikhar from USA

    Finally! The acknowledgement of muslims and recipes for our holidays! If more companies would join the bandwagon, AMIN!!! Now, if they would only use halal gelatin and broth in their other products, I know my life would be easier ! Thanks for the efforts!

  171. Nevien from USA

    i find it incoraging that big compnies are trying to reach to the muslim market. i like the recepies specially the fruit punch, because most of the fruit punch recipes that they have here in america is alcoholic

    i will definitly try these recepies

    thank you

    i hope other companies and chain restaurants do the same and offer halal choices

  172. Harun from US

    Im delighted to hear about such great achievements in products catered for the Muslim cominuty. Kaft food is always grat and Mulims Kraft good are going to be on my shopping list once they are out. I love all the products being talked about. However just a note, I would also like see the additions of South Asian foods as well with more Hala meat products.

  173. Iman S from US

    This is great!

    It's wonderful to see a large corporation taking an active interest in the long ignored Islamic market.

    Now if only they could reach into some of their meat processing subsidiaries and come out with a decent halal (if not zabihah) sausage it'd be even better.

  174. Nada from USA and Jordan

    Thank so much for these great recipes! Its wonderful to finlly be acknowledged as a community in the mainstream market. Im newly married and always looking for interesting new things to make, your suggestions are both comfortably familiar - having grown up with kraft everywhere, and culturally satisfying. I look forward to more of your ideas!

  175. Banu Iqbal from India

    Sounds Fabulous, can't wait to try it. I have some Phili cream cheese brought from US and will try soon for IDD.

  176. S.K. from usa

    It is good to see western companies taking the initiative to reach out to its Muslim consumers.

  177. Rasha Sabs from Canada

    Hello, Thank you so very much for the lovely recipes for Ramadan and Eid. Your thoughfullness is greatly appreciated and the recipes look great!!! Great Job Kraft 🙂

  178. Saleem Moinuddin from Canada

    We really appreciate Kraft Company for having Kraft Halal Recipes. We pray for your success.

    We wish we can get Kraft products in Canada also

    for Muslims. My grand children loves your Macroni Cheese which we get from USA.

    Please make arrangements so that we can buy your cheese in Toronto Canada.

    Thank you. Saleem

  179. Heather Nixon from USA

    Recipes were great!!!! I love Kraft recipes in general, but the halal ones for Ramadan were an added bonus! Thanks!

  180. Kausar Siddiqi from U.S.A.

    It is so good to see Halal recipes that look so delicious. I can hardly wait to try them. The best part is that they seem to be very easy to prepare. Please thank Kraft Foods on my behalf. I am looking forward to more recipes in the future. Thank you for sharing these recipes.

    Kausar

  181. SAYED HASHIMI from USA

    THIS IS INDEED A VERY GOOD NEWS FOR THE MUSLIM COMMUNITY AND AS SOON AS I SEE THOSE PRODUCTS IN THE MARKET I WILL CONVEY THE MESSAGE TO THE REST OF MY COMMUNITY.

    THANK YOU KRAF FOODS.

  182. far from U.S.A

    Meatballs, phyllo rolls, chopped salad and crescent rolls sound really good. I would suggest that build a line of everyday used food with halal meats and cheese i.e. meatballs, chicken parm, mac & cheese, meatloaf, halal beef and chicken entrees. the good thing would be that whatever you make halal would also be kosher. So associating quality of product with halal and kosher name will kick off the product to a wider demogrphics than just muslims & jews. It is nice to know that finally a mainstream food company has tried to reach out the community. Thank You.

  183. Tasneem Ali from USA

    I will try these recipies not only because they look good but Kraft company acknowledges our customs and no other company has taken this initiative and if more companies give us some respect after being looked down as terrorist etc and we forgot that companies even care how we feel and I will definately but more products made by Kraft and I urge all Muslims to encourage companies who cares abt our customs. Thankyou

  184. Tahir Sikandar from usa

    Awesome!

    Idea that is long over due. Looking forward to more recipes from kraft.

    Thanks

  185. Rizwana Choudhury from USA

    I think it's great that Kraft is taking the initiative to reach out to consumers of Muslim faith. It would be great if they could extend this idea to desserts too - especially Marshmallows. Halal marshmallows are hard to find and they'd fly off the shelves in the supermarket if they were available!

  186. Yusuf from USA

    As Salaam-alaikum and Ramadan Mubarak.

    Don't see a problem with Kraft's attempt at this gesture. As long as the ingredients are halal, then OK. With a company this large and with such wide distribution channels..it will also encourage other mainstream food producers to follow suit.

    Lastly though, we should support our own Muslim food producers first! Allah (swt) gave Halal to us believers as a dawah tool so support those close to "home".

  187. Alyssa Taifi from USA

    Thank you so much for these great recipes! It is so great to have one of the big food companies thinking about diversifying their foods for different cultures. As a Muslim American, it is very difficult to find Muslim friendly foods. Thank you for making this a little bit easier.

  188. Alhaji Abdu A. Danbala from Nigeria/U S A

    I am excited. I hope to see the products in the markets soon, not only in the US but all over the world.

  189. sahil from us

    Kraft need to make sure that it carries halaal certification stamp on its product for them to be marketed to muslims.

  190. Macallimka from usa

    It is a nice gesture (however profit-seeking it is),which should be applauded. If it is done wisely, This will draw more consumers for the company

  191. Julio from united states

    All the recipes sound tasty, but if fig Newtons have hydroginated oil, I wouldn't make it--that stuff is terrible for you.

  192. Somaia Abdelrahim from USA

    This is great! I use crafts products all the time. I love to cook and I have so many receipes.

    Thank you Craft.

  193. shirleen from U.S.A.

    I Love your recpes! thanks a million it feels good to find some recipes for my holiday! Thanks again keep up this new idea. Sincerly Mrs.Shirleen B

  194. Arjumand from Canada

    Thankyou for such wonderful receipes.

    This is a great idea and I would as would many others love to get more receipes like these.

    JazakAllah.

  195. Keith D. Livingston from Unite States of America

    I found the recipes outstanding and would recommend that Kraft put together a cookbook honoring the two Eids, and sold at the grocery counters in markets with large Muslim communities, similar to those found for the 4th of July, summer bbqs, Chanakuh, etc.

    Also, if it is possible for Kraft to work closely with the Muslim Community to establish a means of providing halal labeling on foods, this would be great.

    I have often wondered ,how i would use Parmesan cheese in my cooking.The Kraft brand contains rennet

    which is not allowed in islam.Can you please explain how it has been made to a Halal product.Thanks

  197. Betina Lahbabi from usa

    I recieve a magazine periodically from Kraft that often has some neat ideas in it. The recipes for Ramadan and Eid all sound great I hope to try them this weekend Insha'Allah. I think it is great that Kraft is taking the time to aknowledge our holiday and hope to here more from them in the future.

  198. Fahri Alp Kilic from Canada

    I really enjoyed the meatball recipe. It was quite easy to make, and tasty. I found that a little cumin added to recipe added a nice additional flavour. I also tried the "Jazz it up" option, adding cheese to the center of the meatballs. I found that the size of the meatballs was a little small to do this option without having a lot of the cheese leak out, so I would suggest making fewer meatballs (say, 6 or 8 instead of 12) when stuffing them.

  199. Mrs.Alva M. Nabila from United States

    It is indeed good of carft to take the time to give to us Muslims some recipes for Ramadan& Eid, i encrouge my other Muslim brothers and sisters to copy them too for there are not many other manufactors that have done what Kraft has done.

  200. mk from usa

    Hi, this recipe sounds really good, but i was wondering if Kraft does not carry Feta cheese or if the feta cheese they do have is not halal?

  201. Amin from Canada

    Overall these are good recepies. They are definetly a great addition to the diet of our family. For many years we used to eat always the same thing over and over again. Muslims need to discover new tastes and meals, to develop new culinary habits. We are tired to eat the exact same food we've been for decades ! I welcome the idea of Kraft and encourage them to develop and promote new products that will open the diet of mulims to new horizons and at the same time kepping it Halal. Despite the recepies posted on islamcity taste really good, we would like to see other ones as prinpical meals and with meat. Also we need to have "ready in 5 min" food, halal pizza (with halal peperony) etc... I think that one of the most fundamental things to appeal muslims for buying your products is to have a visible sign on the product's box, specifing that it is halal or that muslims can eat it ! I am looking forward, with the increasing muslim population, for the developement of the halal food market, not only in small arabic shops, but also as bulk products available in every grocery.

    Hope my comments were usefull !

  202. Aisha El-Zorba from USA

    Great receipes, I will try some of them. Please post more.

  203. mehjabeen sheikh from U.S.A

    Thanks again.

  205. Nafisah from USA

    These are great! I'm not good at traditional foods and unfamiliar ingredients but these recipes make it really simple -- and my mouth is watering unbearably! Thanks, Kraft.

  206. seanmcdaniel from u.s.a

    thank you for your efforts. we have many muslims in the world that you will benifit from their buisness if you continue your work of catering to the muslim buisness. i wish you the best of results.

  207. Wasim Ismail from Canada

    Thank you Kraft for your wonderful contribution to the Muslim community. Keep up the excellent work!

  208. Nasreen from USA

    The recipes are very helpful, specially during RAMADAN when we are hard pressed for time, these recipes are quickfixes and nutrituou too. Kudos to Kraft Foods and want them to know muslims really appreciate the effort.

  209. Wasim Rajen from USA

    Thank you for your effort. We really appreciate that you took the effort to reach out to muslims.

    Regards,

    Wasim

  210. khalil Chahine from Canada

    I would like to say thank you for not being like all the others. Being social aware of the world, taking the time to learn about the other people that live in this world. Its only food recipes but its a step towards understanding.

  211. h zia from USA

    I think Kraft food has done an excellent job! There are very few places that take muslims and halal food into consideration. If a big company like kraft starts to include muslims into its chain of customers, hopefully smaller companies will start doing so in order to keep up with competition. Its a win-win situation for both the company and for muslims. I'm surprised this didnt happen years ago, since there are so many (masha'allah) muslims living in the U.S. It's nice to see people giving muslims a second look and considering what they eat and soforth.

  212. Hakim Abdullah from USA

    As-Salaam-Alaikum

    Ramadhan Mubarik

    Whlie I have health concerns this a very postive step your company has taken. You should contact muslims who are versed in Islamic dietary law. However muslim can have most are nearly all kosher food the laws are very similar. Myself personally I don't use dairy, meat, flour and sugar products. I use substitute products mostly organic for them in all my recipes.

  213. amina khalid from USA

    This recipe is so good especially for iftar..Its easy to make and really filling..Thanks to Krafts foods for wonderful recipe..

  214. Mona Askalani from US

    Thank you for creating recipes for Muslims. I am a subscriber to

    your Kraft Food & Family magazine and was looking at an old

    issue to make Ramadan and Eid dishes to serve to friends. I will

    try the Fatoush and Spinach Roll up recipes for iftari. I was

    planning on making Spanakopita but will try the roll-up method.

    I was disappointed there wern't any main courses! Focus your

    effort there next! And don't forget the spices! We love our food

    with spices! Chili, Cardamom, Fennel, Cinnamon Bark,

    Cloves ...etc.

    Thank you.

    Mona

  215. Mae from USA

    Thank you for the wonderful recipies. It's great to be recognized as a viable demographic to cater to. Hopefully other companies will follow suit.

  216. Yasmeen Suleyman from USA

    All praise is to due to Allah (swt)!

    How exquisite for Kraft Foods to reach out to the Muslim Community with halal products. I can't wait to try them all! Yum-m-m.

  217. Omar from U.s.

    All these recipes look delightful I'm passing it to my mom right now i love the fattosh and the spinach. Yum yum

  218. Omar from U.S.

    The meatballs look so good. If kraft produces it halal I'm buying and I know alot of Musliims would jump on it too

  219. Mahbuba from USA

    Alhamdulilah and great job introducing food recipies that are sutible for Muslims. Its a great idea to come up with a nice solution such as this during the month of Ramadhan. I hope more halal recipies will be introduced so that more people are able to enjoy them, 😉

  220. Amber from USA

    Thanks to Kraft for creating some interesting recipes that a relevant to Muslims. I will definitely try a few.

  221. Maher S. Hoque from USA

    This is a nice gesture by Kraft. I am going to try the Make-Ahead Spinach Phyllo Roll-Ups. They look pretty good.

  222. Matt P from US

    I don't understand why this is so significant. recipes are available everywhere online. It will be a better move if Kraft produces halal food. We don't need their recipes we need their halal products.

  223. noorul dheen from u.s.

    the recipes were very easy and interesting. please do send more spicy and sweet recipes.

  224. Ashraf from USA

    I liked the taste of the New Moon Fig pastries and I also tried Baked Parmesan Meatballs in their plain form. I intend to try them with filling. I appreciate Kraft's attitude and approach to the Muslim community. It is what I expected from a well known and established brand that I have personally grown up with. Thank you!

  225. Najmulsahar Khan from Canada

    It was wonderful to see this recipe since I have been looking for it for a long time. Now I have it available by Kraft Halal Recipes...

  226. Najmulsahar Khan from Canada

    I was delighted to see the recipes provided by Kraft especially for the Ramadan/Eid. We appreciate the efforts taken by Kraft to develop these for our festive occasions.

  227. Wael Zohni from USA

    These recipes look very good. Am quite impressed and happy to see that Kraft has recognized the importance of properly prepared foods in the Muslim community and has reached out in such an amiable and productive manner. Look forward to trying these dishes out along with other Kraft products. Regards.

  228. ibrahim from USA

    As salam alaikum,

    I think it's a great gesture by Kraft to recognize Islam and to incorporate islamic diet to mainstream America. Perhaps through these ways, people will learn to see Islam for the divine way of life that it is and not the falsehood in the misconceptions of Islam.

    Way to go Kraft and Islamica Magazine.

    Salam.

  229. Mona from USA

    Thanks for making the effort - the recipes sound good - we'll give them a try!

  230. razia from USA

    I thought that the cream cheese and parmesian cheese has non-halal animal product in the ingredient and I have been avoiding eating the two kinds of cheese. Please let me know about my concerns.

    Thanks!

    P.S.Also all the Kraft cheese are halal or not.

  231. SADHIKA from HONG KONG S.A.R

    YOUR BUSINESS WILL GROW,YOU WILL BE ONE OF THE RESPECTED BRANDS AMONG A COMMITED SIGNIFICANT SECTION OF WORLD POPULATION,INCLUDE NON RED MEAT DISHES LIKE CHICKEN AND TURKEY ISLAMIC POPULATION COMES FROM VARIED BACKGROUND

  232. Mrs. Adams from US

    Thank you! I was very surprised and delighted to see Kraft take such a wonderful step to acknowledge American Muslims especially during Ramadan. I will definitly use these recipes for my family and friends! I grew up with Kraft, still use Kraft and this made my day! Yea Kraft!

  233. Riel Bilto from USA

    Thank you for the Ramandan and Eid recipes. I'm very exited to make at least three of these dishes. I'm also happy that kraft is recognizing our community during this very special month.

    Riel

  234. Syed Khadri from USA

    I would like to thank you for providing an excellent recipe for the pastries in the shape of crescent and filled with fig. I absolutely love figs and this is a nice way to present to others making it appealing and tasty.

    Thank you very much and keep up the good work.

  235. Beverly Williams from united states

    wonderful recipes, thank you for taking the time and effort to create recipes for muslims. I will definitely spread the word

    Barbara

  239. Muhammad from USA

    I have a question regarding the Cheese from Kraft.

    Usually when I buy stuff I check if it is marked "U" or "K". I do not think that most of the Kraft products are marked either of both, so I am not really sure wheather these product are halal or not? Any comments?

  240. Amro Elakkad from USA

    I am so glad that Kraft will be developing that adhere to the Islamic dietary and religous laws (halal food) .. this is a great step that is over due. I am buying all those kraft products once they are available.

  241. MUHAMMAD WASIULLAH from USA

    I appreciate this effort by KRAFT,this should not be limited only to the month of Ramadan,as

    there are almost 8 million muslims living in

    USA and few more millions living in Canada.

    I hope this will be a ongoing process in

    future.

    Thanks.

  242. unknown from United states

    These are wonderful and unique recipes. Not only are they creating creative cooking ideas, but they bridge eastern and western cooking phenomena's together. I'm very eager to try these recipes myself!

  243. Sandy umm Sabr from USA

    Alhamdulillah. I think this is great. There are so many Muslims in the US today, and we do have to eat every day. I think that Kraft will do very well with this, and insha'Allah more companies will follow suit.

    I know there are efforts to have Halal symbols approved for food labels, insha'Allah they will become as popular as the Kosher symbols. It would sure make my life easier at the grocery store, insha'Allah.

    I have already forwarded this website to many sisters, so insha'Allah the word will get out and Kraft will see an increase in support because of this.

  244. Tegan Abdikarim from USA

    Some of the items you posted were not halal. The ingredients that we cannot eat are whey, mono and diglycerides, rennet, animal enzymes, gelatin, some cholesterol, vanilla extract (anything with alchohol), glycerol (glycerine), hormones, lard, magnesium stearate (stearic acid), pepsin, shortening from animals, and of course pork.

    I grew up eating your food and enjoyed it, since I have been Muslim I have found that I cannot eat almost anything Kraft produces. If there was halal kraft food I would definately buy it. Especially the macaroni and cheese and the cheese.

    Thank you for considering the Muslim community!

  245. khawaja from usa

    its a great idea and i love krafts products .thank you krafts

  246. Sabera from USA

    Thank you for such delicious recipies and trying to fill up the need for halal recipies.

    I always enjoy Kraft recipies and regularly recieve emails.Many of the kraft recipies call for products which are not permissable for muslims to eat(ie not halal),so i use to substitute them with other ingredients.

    So,thank you for the effort to plan delicious recipies.We will be waiting for more such recipies.

  247. Farid Lakhani from USA

    It is nice to find halal food in big grocery stores. I am sure, it will be beneficial for Kraft as well.

  248. Suzanne from United States

    Assalemolikum

    K-R-A-F-T!

    I WAS A CHILD FROM THE 80'S WHO LOVED KRAFT CHEESE. I AM SO VERY EXCITED ABOUT THESE RECIPES.

    As a matter of fact I bought a can of Kraft a few days ago from a Halal market. Inshallah in the future I will be able to go and buy other products Kraft has that will be Halal

    INSHALLAH I WILL MAKE/Bake A COUPLE THIS EID!

  249. Vaseem Siddiqui from USA

    i WANT TO THANK kRAFT ON TAKING A BOLD STEP TO CATER THE MUSLIM COMMUNITY WITH "halal" food. They way i looked at it there is a dier need for all kind of "Halah" food prepared in Muslim way. THERE ARE OVER 6 MILLON Musilms IN USA could share this with Kraft.

  250. Nikki Kenter from USA

    This is great, thanks so much for recognizing Muslims and working to offer great halal recipes. As an American convert to Islam, Kraft is definitely a standard in my house. Thanks!!

  251. Abdul Rahman from Canada

    Hi,

    1-The cokkies contain mono & diglycrides which is not Halal.

    Butter & Margrine is also not Halal it contain animal fat.

    The creme Chease is also not Halal.

    If I am wrong please let me know.

    Regards

    Abdul

  252. tabassum from usa

    I would love if Kraft made all its products halal so we can consume and enjoy it. especially, single cheese slice. I have not prepared any of the recipes for wondering, if the kraft ingredients are halal. But it will be a huge favor for muslims as well as more consumer demand for Kraft products if it gets a halal certificate.

    Thank you,

    Tabassum

  253. shabana from US

    U think this is a great idea. I will definitely try the recipe. Very exciting that our culture and needs are being recongnized!

  254. Heather Silvers Chenaoui from USA

    Thank you so much for considering us as a part of the society,keep up the good work,I would love to use more craft products and would love more recipes especially for muslims Thanks again

  255. Linda Abuelghanam from USA

    These look like great recipes. I really do appreciate having some Halal recipes with the Kraft name attached! The dip looks absolutely delicious and the fattoush..my favorite!! Thanks so mucha and I hope to see more halal recipes from Kraft!

  256. Hamid from Canada

    This is an awesome idea as it is very difficult for muslims (especially those in rural areas) to get halal meat products. Availability of these kind of products from a major food processor like Kraft would really make a difference!

  257. Mohammad Aleem from USA

    I am extremely happy that a food giant like KRAFT is trying to reach our Muslim community through this program. Hope this will help build a bridge between the Western culture and the Muslim society, and increase the level of mutual understanding and recognition. I thank KRAFT very much for their great efforts.

  258. Abu Omar from USA

    Congratulations! Good Move. Few I tried turned out to be delicious.

    I love Kraft products in general and Cheeses in particular.

    Keep up the good work. We need your help.
