Lecithin is a fat used as an emulsifier in various products. Its Halal status depends on the source:
- Plant-based (e.g., soy lecithin): Generally considered Halal.
- Egg-based: Halal if the egg is from a permissible bird.
- Animal-based: It must come from a Halal-certified animal slaughtered according to Islamic guidelines to be Halal.
As with any ingredient, seeking products with clear Halal certification or checking with manufacturers is recommended for peace of mind.
