Nutella, the world-famous chocolate spread maker in a recent social media interaction has said that its products are not Halal!

When a user on Twitter asked the brand whether its products are halal. “No, they are not halal,” Nutella’s official Twitter handle responded.

However,  the reply from Nutella met with the refusal of several Muslim consumers. Many took to social media reasoning that as being fit for a vegetarian’s consumption it is okay for Muslims to eat it, as rules do not allow the company to declare it as a Halal product.

 

Nutella is a brand of sweetened hazelnut cocoa spread. Nutella is manufactured by the Italian company Ferrero and was first introduced in 1964, although its first iteration dates to 1963.

However, for Muslims, it is advised to thoroughly check the contents of any edible product before consuming it to find out whether it falls in the Halal category or not.
