Are Eggs Halal?

Are you a Muslim foodie, wondering if you can eat eggs? Are you a health-nut looking for a natural protein boost? In this blog we tackle the question “are eggs halal?”, and whether or not you can consume them. In this blog, I take a close look at what halal food is, and whether or not eggs are part of the halal diet.

A Closer Look

Halal foods are foods that are permissible according to the laws of Islam. Muslims can consume this food without worry. Safe foods include natually-obtained vegetarian foods, and permissible meats that have been slaughtered according to the laws of Islam. Pig is considered unclean and is considered haram (not okay for Muslims to consume), along with alcohol. There are other meats too such as animals like donkeys, turtles and snakes are not allowed.

As far as the rules of Islam are concerned, eggs from all lawful animals are halal! Eggs from animals such as turtles and snakes, which are impermissible are haram. Keeping this in mind, you can safely consume several types of egg-based recipes, especially chicken egg recipes which are some of the most mainstream and popular.

Are Eggs Halal? – Bottom Line

Bottom line is, you can consume eggs as long as they are from permissible animals. So go ahead and enjoy your favourite desserts and try new egg-based recipes. If you’re simply looking for a protein boost, you can try certain whey proteins which are also halal. Hope the blog cleared any doubts you have about eggs being halal. Thanks for reading!
