In April 2010 an announcement was made that the ProNutro strawberry flavour was not Halaal as it contained an alcoholic derivative. This was communicated to the Muslim public of South Africa. Bokomo Foods, the manufacturers of the products entered into consultation with the National Independent Halaal Trust (NIHT) to find a solution to the dilemma facing the Muslim public. A decision was taken to reformulate the problematic flavour and the NIHT began a rigorous and comprehensive investigation into every single ingredients used at the plant.

This investigation lasted for a year and revealed that all other ingredients were Halaal. During that period the strawberry flavour was reformulated as agreed with the NIHT and the usage of the Haraam flavour was discontinued. The entire plant was then cleansed conforming to Islamic requirements to ensure there was no contamination with any residue from previous productions.

The National Independent Halaal Trust (NIHT) is pleased to announce that that the ProNutro Strawberry, along with the rest of the ProNutro range, has been certified Halaal.

The certification includes ProNutro Toddlers and ProLight. Any ProNutro product with a production date after 9 May 2011 is Halaal certified by the NIHT. Please be vigilant and check production dates. Future packaging will bear the NIHT Halaal logo. 

The NIHT is proud to certify the ProNutro range and compliments Bokomo Foods for their dedication in ensuring their products are fit for Muslim consumption.

The NIHT welcomes Bokomo Foods to our list of certified companies.
