The ruling regarding food is that the product which is consumed contains no haram substance. Certain foods cannot be ruled halal until a full description of its ingredients is given. Upon research it has come to light there are many products which consist of the same name as to some there are halal ingredients and to some haram. Therefore it makes it difficult to differentiate between which product is asked regarding.
Only Allah knows best
