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 that there are many products which consist of the same name and to some, there are halal ingredients and to some haram. Therefore, it makes it difficult to differentiate between which product is asked regarding.
