Is there any API to get list of ingredient that contains added Intoxicants/alcohol not the natural that just exists ?

Above would do the job for me for now, but if you are curious to know why I am asking this then some background...

I would like to develop an open source web app which will figure out if certain food products are halal or haram based on product's ingredients initially.

I already found a product ingredients database here - https://world.openfoodfacts.org/

But I am struggling to find a database for Haram ingredients or products.

[Haram food][2] is a big topic to cover but initially developing a simple engine would be a good start.

  • Here is some description of haram food - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haram#Food_and_intoxicants – Is it May 11 '17 at 13:07
  • Let me check this: you want a two-step process: product contains ingredient contains alcohol? Not just product contains alcohol? – Jan Doggen May 11 '17 at 13:35
  • @JanDoggen I want 1st one for now, as I think some products like fruits have alcohol in them naturally – Is it May 11 '17 at 13:58

    Pierre from Open Food Facts :-) We're keen on improving haram/non haram support, as well as any other ingredient detection. Volunteers needed :-) – PierreS May 13 '17 at 15:30
  • When talking about alcohol do you really mean any alcohol compound – nmtoken May 14 '17 at 8:50
