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?
What if you just ate as much as you wanted every other day? Or for only a few hours a day? Or fasted two days a week? These are all examples of intermittent fasting regimens. That may even be the way we were built.
If so, first you should question the concept of eating three times a day. Is there a biological reason to eat three meals a day or it is just one of the societal constructs so ingrained in our culture that you never question it!
Muslim parents in Japan are struggling to find Halal or Muslim friendly powdered milks for their babies. Sometimes, they have no other choice but to buy what they need from their home countries in any way possible.
Many have been contacting us asking, which powdered milk is Muslim friendly! Fortunately, there’s a group of volunteers who are dedicating their time and expertise to help Muslims living in Japan by providing these kind of information which people need on daily basis.
As the Japan’s Muslim population grows, the halal market is expanding at a rapid pace to meet the growing demands of Muslim residents as well as visitors to the country.
In many countries, special attention is being paid to the growth potential of the Halal market as one of the new engines for a sharp economic expansion, and they are taking the necessary steps to enter into this lucrative market.
Globally, Muslims make up the second largest religious group, with 1.8 billion people, or 24% of the world’s population. It is estimated that there will be 160 million Muslim travelers by 2020, and the figure is expected to increase to 230 million by 2026.
In recent years more and more Muslims are traveling to countries where they see the lifestyle as such that their religion is respected. In contrast to other people, Muslims tend to travel in larger groups and stay longer when they travel.
