Halal Certified DATEM
Halal is an Arabic word means lawful or permitted. It is always mentioned along with Haraam which means sinful or prohibited by Allah. At the same time, you will also be able to find another related term in Islamic food, mushbooh which means doubtful or suspect as it is unclear whether they are Halal or Haraam. For mushbooh food, the products’ source and manufacturing process need to be audited to decide whether it’s halal or haraam.
DATEM is an ester manufactured through chemical synthesis from Ethanol, tartaric acid, Glycerol and fatty acid available as White or off-white solid. Full name of DATEM is diacetyl tartaric acid ester of mono- and diglycerides. As a synthesized chemical, DATEM is general recognized as halal. We will still audit another 2 key points to make sure that our DATEM is 100% halal: Are there any pig products used in manufacturing process of this ingredient? Does the ingredient contain Alcohol (impure) or other haraam ingredients?
The manufacturing process of DATEM is pig-free; the raw materials (or culture medium) are other synthesized chemical ingredients. No other haraam ingredients will be used used in manufacturing process of DATEM.
