In reference to what is being circulated about some countries' decision to approve the use of insects in food production, the Ministry of Public Health stressed on its Twitter account on 2 February that it bans food products containing insects in the markets.
This is because it does not meet the requirements of Halal food technical regulations, consistent with the GCC relevant regulations, and the religious opinion of the competent authorities, which prohibit the consumption of insects or protein and supplements extracted from them.
The Ministry of Public Health verifies food compliance with the halal requirements through Islamic bodies accredited by the Ministry and through its international-accredited laboratories to determine the source of protein in food products accurately.
