Similac is Muslim baby formula?
I was making bottles just now, and I noticed a tiny Halal label on it.
None of the other formula brands (Enfamil, Good Start) in my cupboard have it.

I just thought that was interesting. I guess all non-breastfeeding Muslim women use Similac!

"It all began with the South East Asian market requesting halal certification. That was followed, six years ago, with Saudi Arabia making halal certification compulsory for all its edible imports. <snip>
The wakeup call to have plants in the USA halal-certified as well, came after news on a American blog, stating that Abbott's Similac® wasn't halal-certified, was picked up in Malaysia and spread there like wild fire. This was true of Similac made in plants in the USA, for USA distribution, but was not the case with Similac made overseas for distribution in Malaysia. Similac, a leading baby formula in the Malaysian market, is halal-certified and even carries the halal certification logo.
Abbott learned quickly from the experience. To stave off similar scenarios and losses in the future, the company decided to have all its plants, and as many products as possible, certified as halal for markets worldwide. "Not only did it make good business sense, it was also the right thing to do," says Sgontz. "There are 8 million Muslims in the USA and we want to provide nutritional products to as many people as possible. It's the socially responsible thing to do because now our products are not off-limits to Muslims in the USA who need them." Abbott, however, will have a few products that can't be certified as halal since their formulas cannot be changed. "

Enfamil is kosher, from what I've read. Nothing is labeled on the packaging though.

From what I understand, Similac has a huge market in places like Malaysia. The plants over there are all Halal certified, because people wouldn't buy it otherwise.
It got out on the Internet a few years ago that the American Similac plants were not Halal, (the formula is not exported from here to there), and their sales overseas dipped.
So they started making the American stuff Halal too. It's all about $$$$.
However, I'd like to note that one of their formulas, Alimentum, is not Halal, because it contains some pork products in it (it's a hydrolyzed protein formula for babies with milk protein allergies). They wouldn't change the formula.

Re: Similac is Muslim baby formula?
why not brest milk??

formula is made for every baby so it's really not intended for any baby

brest milk is specific to the baby and can't be beat

Lol! That is pretty funny that Similac is an anagram for Islamic.

However, it's probably purely coincidental.

Re: Similac is Muslim baby formula?

You know what ... I breast fed my son for 2,5 plus years and I say get off this chicks' back.
By the way most muslim women in my area do extended breastfeeding while the white women not so much.In fact they kept telling me to stop, I told them to kiss my ass, and kept on going.

Actually, my baby is super healthy. But that's besides the point.
What kind of father are you when you're obviously filled with hate and intolerance? I'm sure you're a great role model for your kids.
Srsly, how do you know I don't have a serious medical condition that requires medication that passes into breastmilk? Your ignorance is astounding.

Yes. I called Similac Consumer Care - 1-800-670-7878 and they confirmed most of the similac formulas are Halal and Kosher.

If you want to confirm any specific milk product it is wise to call them and tell them that about which milk you want to confirm whether it is halal or haram because few formulas are haram according to them.

Maple Lodge Farms. Here in Ontario has all their chickens blessed by whatever the Islamic priests or whatever they are called. Even though they only brand some of their products Halal certified. everything they sell could be halal certified. I think they will piss a lot of people off if every product said Halal certified.
