Is Maoam Halal?

2 Mins read

Maoam is a famous candy made in Germany. Thanks to their delicious and juicy treats, almost everybody in the UK knows Haribo, the company behind it. Kids, teens, and adults – they all love it.

Inside a Maoam packet, you will find five candies with the same flavor. But wait, there’s more! They don’t just make candy; they have gums and jellies too.

If you are a Muslim and looking if Maoam is halal? No, Maoam is not halal. It has gelatin, so it’s not right for folks who need Kosher or Halal food.

Ingredients of Haribo Products

Haribo candies come in lots of different types. They have many ingredients, but not all candies have the same ones. It’s wise to check what’s inside each candy, and if you need more clarification, ask someone who knows about Islamic rules. Here’s a list of some common ingredients:

  • Sugar (Halal)
  • Glucose Syrup (Halal)
  • Sorbitol Syrup (Halal)
  • Palm Fat (Halal)
  • Citric Acid (Halal)
  • Gelatin (Haram)
  • Flavors and Colors (we’re not sure about these)

Most ingredients are okay, but gelatin (usually from pigs) isn’t.

Is Maoam Vegetarian?

Do you wonder if Maoams are vegan? Sadly, the answer is no. Why, you ask? Maoam candies have something called animal gelatin in them. Think of gelatin as jelly-type stuff that comes from animals.

If you are a vegan or vegetarian, these treats are not on your menu. It is a no-go zone for those who steer clear of animal products. Next time you are candy hunting, you’ll need to check the ingredients

Is Maoam Gelatin Beef or Pork?

In the UK, what kind of gelatine is found in your treats? You will discover pork-based gelatine in various items.


It is included in the MAOAM selection and also in Chamallows. It is all about the ingredient that gives these treats their special texture. Think of it as the secret behind the chewiness!

How to Recognize Halal Maoam

Wondering if candy is okay to eat according to Islamic rules? Just call the company that made it and ask what’s in it.

Then, talk to a local Islamic teacher to find out if it is halal or haram. You can also look for special halal labels on the product. It’s like a food detective game!

Wrapping Up!

If you are trying to figure out what food is okay (halal) or not okay (haram) to eat, you can look at the Quran and Sunnah for guidance. If something has harmful ingredients, it is not allowed.

If it has good ingredients, it is acceptable to eat. But it is always smart to ask someone who knows about these rules, like an Islamic scholar.

They can help you make sure you are following the rules correctly. It’s like asking a teacher for help with a tough question.
