SWINE FAT IN COMMERCIAL BREAD
-SANHA’S DESPERATE AND BASELESS CARRION DEFENCE-
A concerned brother reports:
Asalam O Alaikum Brothers - A Muslim Brother working in Woolworths Bakery has confirmed that they use lard (pig fat) to grease their baking utensils (to avoid sticking). I have checked with a few others in bakery business and use of lard is very, very common as it is comparatively cheaper than the butter. This is the reason they don’t mention “suitable for Vegetarians” on their Woolworths bakery products. They are not obliged to mention in ingredients list because this is not part of the consumables as per industry standards. I am sharing just for the sake of Allah SWT and after investigation within my capacity for the benefit of our community. You can check it yourselves and make a decision. May Allah save all of us from Haram.
