Rennet & Whey Explained, and Kraft cheese products

I'm not a nutritionist or food expert, but for those of you who are unclear about what rennet and whey are, I'll put it in simple terms to inshaAllah be easily understood.

Rennet is a substance usually taken from baby calves to aid in the production of cheese. There are microbial substitutes that are sometimes used, but this is on a rare occasion and is usually specified on the foods packaging. Why is it taken from a baby calf's stomach? Because this is an enzyme found specifically in their stomachs to help them digest their mother's milk. The enzymes that make up rennet coagulates milk, causing it separate into curds and whey, to help form cheese.

So therefore, whey is the liquid leftover after milk has been curdled and strained. So if the whey was produced using an animal derived rennet, then the product containing whey is not permissible for consumption. This by-product is used in a lot of cheeses, cookies, crackers, breads and pastries. So you shouldn't only look for whey in cheese products!


Ok, so moving onto the Kraft cheeses. I did not even have to email the company about these questions because they were found on their FAQ page.

KRAFT SINGLES:
What is the enzyme derivative of KRAFT Singles?

The process of converting milk into cheese is dependent on coagulating through the use of an enzyme. The enzymes in this product are sourced from both microbial fermentations and animal sources. The animal sources are cow, sheep, and goat.

Well, sometimes they DO use microbial enzymes, which would make the cheese vegan and halal. However, because they bounce between microbial and animal enzymes, we never know which is being used at the time we pick up a pack of cheese, and also the equipment would be mixed without being cleaned as well. So we should avoid Kraft Singles inshaAllah, I believe they aren't even kosher.


VELVEETA CHEESE:

Is VELVEETA Kosher?

Due to an ingredient in this product and/or the manufacturing process, VELVEETA Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product is not certified Kosher.

Again, this would be an animal derivative in used in Velveeta cheeses and are not halal.

KRAFT MACARONI AND CHEESE:

What enzyme derivative is present in KRAFT© Macaroni & Cheese?

....The enzymes used to make our cheese powder in packages of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese are derived from an animal source (calves and sheep).

And so again, this too contains animal derived enzymes.


Conclusion: Please be sure to check your food ingredients for RENNET, WHEY, and ENZYMES.

Kraft Singles, Kraft Macaroni and cheese, and Kraft's Velveeta cheeses are not halal.

Walaupun dikatakan renet itu berasal daripada lembu, sumber ini masih meragukan memandangkan sumber bahan perlulah mengikut piawaian dan kriteria Halal yang telah digariskan oleh Syariat Islam iaitu lembu itu perlu disembelih mengikut syariah Islam.

Maka di sini dapat disimpulkan bahawa, sebarang produk yang kita gunakan mestilah disemak kandungannya sebelum dipakai atau dimakan. Perkara syubhah adalah sangat perlu dielakkan.
