Sugar has played an important role throughout human history and continues to enrich people’s lives. It comes in different shapes and forms including white soft sugar, granulated and liquid or syrup sugars, with usage from cooking to confectionery to medicine.
The process of refining sugar usually utilizes bone char from animals, a method which is not compliant with Islamic dietary laws. As a Muslim or a vegan living in Japan, where you can find sugar without animal by-products?
As summer wouldn’t be summer without Ice cream, a birthday party is not complete without birthday cake.
Foreigners living in Japan face many challenges, and Muslims have some more difficulties on top of those challenges. One of those difficulties is about finding Halal food including confectionery products like Cakes, Candies and Ice Cream; what many people love especially children, but not so easy to get.
When people think about emergency preparedness they think about those who are preparing for doomsday. Even here in Japan, the world’s most earthquake-prone county, many households are unprepared to go without food or water for few days.
Do you have food restrictions; allergies, vegetarian diets, Halal food only! Do you have an emergency food supply set aside in case disaster strikes?
The key thing here is to remember that emergencies by their definition; you don’t know they are coming!
