Halal Scanner

Halal Scanner is an innovative one of a kind iPhone app that scans ingredient labels on food products and automatically determines the halal statuses of food additives contained within the product.

Simply point your iPhone 3GS camera at the ingredients label of a food product and Halal Scanner will capture and check the food additive numbers it finds in our halal database to determine whether or not the additives are halal.

Halal Scanner also allows you to search through our halal database when you need to look up additives in a hurry or if you are using an iPod Touch, iPhone 2G or 3G, or an iPad.


■Scan ingredient labels and automatically determine halal statues of food additives.
■Search through food additives using the keypad.
■Browse through our entire database of food additives and their halal statuses.
■Customise the start page of the app for easy access to your favourite feature.

    Thanks for writing about us. We have cross checked several sources for our halal database. We've taken the most conservative approach to marking any ingredient halal in our database. Also, we're in the process of having our database certified by an independent halal authority very shortly.
