Salam alaikum. Smiley
Hey everyone.
I need to know something and it's important: what do you do with foods that are preserved with alcohol?
And sometimes I have no clue what alcohol they might be using especially in Japanese products.
If such foods can't be included in the halal list, is it possible to get rid of the alcohol without spoiling the food then? Sad

Wsalam,

Can you give us an example of a food like that? Trying to think what is preserved in alcohol? Surely there's an alternative?

Hmm from what I understand Miso soup is made with alcohol. It's one of the main ingredients! Not sure what you mean by "preserved by"? If you're making Miso soup yourself you might examine the ingredients and try to find a replacement for the alcohol like apple vinegar or something!

I've seen lots of different recipes for miso soup, some have a tbs of rice wine, you could skip it altogether or substitute it for vinegar or something.

I had a list of all the halal substitutes for cooking wines, I'll go find it and post it.

I'm looking at the miso that they sell on Amazon.  There is no alcohol listed in the ingredients.   Huh?
