'High protein' chocolate bars do not meet halal requirements and these products differ in composition from the Mars, Bounty, Snickers and Milky Way products available in the domestic market, the Ministry of Public Health announced on Monday.
The 'protein' chocolates contain protein from non-halal source and are not imported by an authorised dealer in Qatar, it said, adding the announcement comes in response to what has been raised in social media in this regard.
The ministry called on all not to buy the products through the internet or through personal sources.
As part of the precautionary measures, the ministry has directed its inspectors to ensure that the markets are free from the items and inform the ports not to allow their entry even in non-commercial quantities.Last updated: September 23 2019 09:50 PM
