Things to know about the food of Islam

Halal food, in addition to not using any addictive or toxic alcohol or drink, must also be made from plant and animal sources processed according to the Islamic method. Meats of claws and fangs such as lions, tigers, bears, pork, dog meat, snakes, monkeys are not Halal. Besides, the flesh of predatory birds such as the state, vultures, terrestrial predators are killed by suffocation or beatings, and the food is composed of animal blood considered invalid for Halal food.

Some specialized products meet the Halal standard:

- Milk (cow, sheep, camel, goat)

- Honey

- Fish

- Fresh vegetables or dried fruits

- Nuts: peanuts, cashews, hazelnuts, etc.

- Cereals: wheat, rice, barley, etc.

In countries where Islam is dominant or absolute, all meat is Halal, all food is Halal, and an increasing number of non-food items, such as personal consumption products, Shower gels, lotions, etc. As in Malaysia, a country with 60% of Muslims, even Coca-Cola cans are also labeled Halal.

However, even in non-Muslim countries, the consumption of Halal foods, including meat and consumer goods, has increased surprisingly. For example, Halal beef now accounts for 70% of New Zealand's lamb exports to the UK, while almost 100% of the slaughtered meat in Paris (France), except pork (of course), has followed the Halal standard. In fact, it is not too difficult for you if you want to find an address to enjoy Halal cuisine in this friendly city. Because of the significant number of visitors, many restaurants can meet the expectations of Muslim tourists.
