For me Doritos and Cheetos and anything like it would be deadly as I'm allergic to milk protein  Sad   Found that out the hard (or should I say the scary) way.    My children (love them as I do) enjoy sitting in front of me eating ice cream and whatnot knowing I can't eat any; yet they also eat my soy ice cream bars.

Salam alaikum wrb,

Honorable sister,

      When looking at the ruling saying that dorritos and cheetos, and cheese are haram, you
should find out and inquire on who made this ruling. Was it a noble scholar, that researched
the rulings of our predecessors to prophet Muhammed saw, or was it someone speaking from
his or her personal interpretation without knowledge?

       The article by Yasir Qadhi, as well as many of his other articles and lectures, is quite excellent in
what the scholars of Islam say about this issue, i.e. the issue of transformation from one substance
to another, and the issue of mixing a minute quantity of a substance not affecting the ruling of the
majority substance.  There are situations where the substance is tranformed from one thing to another,
and hence get a new ruling. An example of this is like grape juice being transformed to alcohol being
transformed to vinegar. Another example would be digestion. As well as Evaporation into the air followed by
condensation of rain into the streams. 

       It is encumbant on everyone to study what the scholars say about issues such as this, so that they could
learn an know what is allowed and forbidden for them, and avoid commiting any sins in the future. It is also encumbant for everyone to obey the commands of Allah and His Messenger completely and wholeheartedly after they have learned them, and avoid the forbidden, and not continue doing something sinful. Also after learning what the scholars say on these issues, one should convey them to their colleagues, so that they should also be aware
of the rulings regarding these issues. 

      There are many great articles and lectures on the Islamic laws on the Internet. I would encourage everyone to read them and study from them, and increase their knowledge. This could be done quite easily, whereas the generations before us had to make quite a bit of effort, often travelling great distances to faraway lands in order to seek the knowledge.

      And Allah knows.

Salam alaikum


      And Allah knows. 

May Allah increase you in knowledge.

Most Doritos flavours now have no animal rennet in their ingredients and are labeled as suitable for vegetarians but I'm not sure about Cheetos. I did hear that the Walkers Sensations thai chilli flavour contains alcohol but I don't know for sure.
