Enjoy Some Great Halal Cuisine at Catch 35
As the U.S. population diversifies, many different cuisines are becoming more common. Some types of ethnic dishes previously almost unknown are now eaten by Americans regularly. One example of this trend is the growing popularity of Halal cuisine. In fact, since 2016, it has been estimated sales of Halal food in grocery and convenience stories reached $1.9 billion in the U.S. This is a remarkable 15-percent increase from just four years earlier.
The United States truly is a melting pot, with many different faiths and religions. This makes it very important for food and restaurant managers to understand dietary trends, preferences and restrictions followed by a growing number of Americans. As the population continues to increase, religious dietary laws, such as Halal, are becoming more prominent in people’s lives.
In North America, Halal food has experienced strong growth. Halal consumers spend $20 billion on food annually in the United States. Strict regulations governing this type of diet outline what foods a person can and cannot eat and how they must be prepared for consumption.
Islamic dietary laws determine the foods that can be considered Halal. Halal foods are lawful and allowed for consumption by those observing Islamic teachings. Foods displaying a Halal symbol on their packaging have been approved by an agency. They are considered certified and to be free of any forbidden components or ingredients. Halal claims on the nutrition label or the packaging always need to include the name of the certification body.
