Red bull..

Postby Muhammad » 28 Dec 2006, 14:34

In His name The Most High
with regards to the "energy drink" red bull" there were some queries which came up recently.
Professor Karim Manji had said in the mosque that it contains 0.05% of alcohol which gives the right to the producers not to include it in the ingredients.
and various other sources(reliable) have told me it is permissible. in many shia communities around the world it is labelled "Legal".
Personally i used to have it during my exams especailly MATHS!!lol..since i have heard the contradiction i have substituted with coffe..
when i try to discuss with others it is taken as a joke or a thing which is wrong..
can some1 enlighten us in this regards

Wkipedia says the Ingredients are

Water, sucrose, glucose, acidifier sodium citrates, carbon dioxide, taurine (0.4%), glucuronolactone (0.24%), caffeine (0.03%), inositol, vitamins (niacin, pantothenic acid, B6, B12), flavourings, and colours (caramel, riboflavin).

Always so sarcastic.

I havent said Redbull is allowed. All I say s that it may not contain alcohol, unlike coca cola.

So what you are saying is Redbull doesn’t contain alcohol and Coca Cola does :?:

Anybody can edit wikipedia, but some articles are locked. And there is always a backup which is used if some prankster tries to edit the info. The prankster is also blocked from editing any further documents.

Qarrar, I see no point in arguing with you because I can see you dont want to accept the truth.
