This page relates to Walkers, a Walkers brand.

Please see below for a list of products suitable for Vegetarians and another list for Vegetarians with no Ethanol. The scholars regard Ethanol as permissible to consume, therefore it is halal to consume the products in the first list. However, we have also presented the list of products that contain ethanol for those who reserve the opinion is it haram (minority). Please see the post is Ethanol halal?

  1. If someone presented a mix bowl of crisps.. and say you ate them and later found out some of them were pork. Is it haram?

    1. Salam Brother

      If the crisps contained pork, then they are unequivocally haram, however if it was flavouring (not derived from pigs) then it won’t be considered haram, but still disliked.
      As one was not aware, no sin is upon them, however it gives thought to ensuring what we eat is halal beforehand.

  2. Asalam walaikum thank you for doing a great job and informing the Muslim jummah but I have come across the walkers max strong range can you clarify if they are halal or not they have animal Renner in the jalapeno and cheese one and there is also hot chicken wings anf chilli and lime flavour

    1. Salam,

      We can confirm the following are halal:

      Walkers MAX Strong Chilli & Lime Flavour
      Walkers MAX Strong Wasabi Flavour

        1. Salam, the mentioned crisps are haram. Do you think people will benefit from a haram tab?

          We did not want to declare products as haram, as there is sometimes a difference of opinion, either in ingredients or school of thought.

  3. Assalamu alaykum

    I’ve stumbled across your site whilst researching the use of ethanol in food products (specifically Walkers crisps), and hope you can help…

    Are crisps (or other food products) that contain ethanol, permissible to eat for Muslims? I have recently discovered that Walkers Sensations contain ethanol, and possibly Walkers Max Paprika too.

    What’s the Hanafi fiqh regarding this please?

    Jazak’Allah khayr

    1. Salam, because the amount of the synthetic alcohol is minute and also is not derived from dates or grapes, they will be permissible to consume.

    1. Salam, these contain animal rennet therefore not suitable for vegetarians. But generally, they are halal according to the hanafi school.

    1. Salam Yes they are halal. Ive requested an update from Walkers and will update all the Walkers brands post in August InshaAllah.
