Ingredients from Biotechnology

Biotechnology covers a wide range of activities and therefore leads to a large number of different applications in the food industry. For Muslims these new technologies open up opportunities for expanding their food supply. At the same time, these new technologies may create some difficulties in making Halal determinations for food ingredients, food products, food materials, and even modified species of animal and plants. Information should be made available to Muslim leaders on concepts and practices in food biotechnology and genetic engineering so they can properly evaluate their Halal implication for foods. In general, biotechnology ingredients and enzyme cultures are accepted by Muslims, with some reservations about certain products (eg, a porcine-derived biotech-produced enzyme) that need to be reviewed on a case-by-case basis (8).
