Do processed food such as chips, cold-drink and other processed foot constitute Haram food? What's the ruling on processed food?
Good Question. Now I am no scholar, but my understanding tells me;
If the food contains Haraam or najis elements, then yes it will be Haram.
By Haraam elements I mean, the whole process from preparing to cooking to serving to eating.
But if there are no Najis, haram elements in the food... then logic tells us that it has to be Halaal.
This is the basic criteria to know.
Thanks, And remember Keep asking ! For Allah says in the Qur'an, "Are not those who ponder (think, contemplate, ask, question) better"
