ws,

Read all ingredients.

Don't buy stuff with: gelatin, lecithin, chicken stock, beef stock, pork, bacon, animal shortening, ham, rennit, alcohol, beer, beer batter, cochineal, lard, rum, wine, vanilla extract.

Something helpful.. look for a K (kosher) symbol on the snack or a U (universal anyone can eat it) symbol.

P.S. - Welcome to the U S of A!!

Thanks sis J ! I've noted down all of these. And now i'd freak people out by pulling out this list where ever i go to eat.

Like the way 2 sandwich artist ladies got almost freaked out at subway when I started asking them of the content of each thingy. And then  told them that im finding my way around things, so if I do something thats not a norm, then kindly excuse me. I topped it off with a good tip Smiley

More later... i'm having a blast. Friends here have been sooo very accommodating mA

I'm going to follow all your advice to the dot !

Had my first lunch outside with office colleagues (2 chinese and 2 desis), at a chinese islamic restaurant. They had 'la elaha ilaAllah...' written in arabic all over their walls. And most of their customers were chinese or white, which was somewhat surprising for me.

Assalyamu Aleykum. I've a question. So what should i do with "snacks" i've already bought and only afterwards found out that some of the ingredients are inappropriate. I just hate to waste food, but cannot consume it either.  Huh?
May Allah keep us safe.

Walaikum salam,

I think if it's non-zabihah chicken/beef you can give it to someone who isn't zabihah ie they eat chicken/beef from the store (which is fine because it is an opinion of some scholars). OR I would try really hard to return the products, sometimes grocery stores will let you exchange if you tell them 'I can't eat this ingredient and didn't notice'. If you do have some non-Muslim friends why not give it to them? Perhaps better than just throwing it away? Although there might be an opinion that it's better to throw it away. Will try to look into it iA.
