It is agreed that any soya extract to produce the lecithin is consider permissible as it is vegetable source. What about the supplement product from shaklee or biolife using bovine for the soft shell of the lecithin capsules. This item is extracted from bull or buffalo and could also be from Pork. Appreciate if could give your comment.
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
Lecithin and its primary component, choline, are among many beneficial substances found in soybeans. Research shows that lecithin may have numerous health benefits, including the maintenance of a healthy liver, a healthy heart and circulatory system, increasing physical performance, and successful pregnancy and child development.
There are two basic forms: soft gel capsules and granules.
Majority of the soft gel capsules used for the Lecithin capsules are composed of bovine gelatine. Bovine gelatine is sourced from collagen extracted from the bones, cartilage, connective tissue and skin of cattle. It is not permissible to consume bovine gelatine of unislamically slaughtered consumable animals.
Hence, it is not permissible to take Soy Lecithin supplementary products with bovine gelatine capsules. If a person wants to benefit from Lecithin, he may take the granules. One should consult a doctor before commencing any medication or supplement.
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
