Abstract:   (213 Views)
Background: The literal meaning of halal is "permissible" in Arabic, which refers to a mandatory set of dietary guidelines and Islamic law principles. Halal food is made following the Islamic dietary regulations, ensuring specific standards of cleanliness, hygiene, animal welfare, and the prohibition of the inclusion of harmful chemicals. The emphasis on cleanliness, animal welfare, prohibition of harmful substances, nutritional value, and ethical sourcing contributes to a healthier and more sustainable food system.
Methods: An extensive online literature search for articles was performed using various search engines and databases with keywords halal food, food hygiene, and Islamic dietary principles. The reference lists of all the retrieved publications were also explored.
Results: Our search was limited to English articles that seemed relevant to this review, and the draft was prepared. 
Conclusion: The health benefits of halal eating extend beyond religious grounds. Halal food consumption provides a safer option and minimizes the potential for food contamination and the associated health risks. By adhering to halal dietary guidelines, individuals can make conscious choices that promote their well-being while fostering a sense of responsibility towards animals, the environment, and the community at large. Halal food offers a holistic approach to nutrition and health, providing safer, balanced, and ethical food choices.
