‘Fry light’ is a cooking oil spray and in its ingredients it states alcohol. When inquiring about the alcohol the company states it is a preservative only and burns away when cooking to such an extent that even with scientific testing the alcohol is not found. All this information plus more is available on Frylight website. Jazakallah

“Yes – we use a small amount of alcohol in our cooking sprays as a preservative, made from sugar beets or grain and water. The alcohol evaporates away during cooking and is undetectable under scientific testing.”
The above-mentioned product is permissible to consume.
