For this, any Muslim will question the Halal status of their food.

Now, let’s delve in to know more about this.
Are Doritos Halal or Haram ?
Doritos located in Muslim countries such as Indonesia have Halal certifications for their products.
The same thing is true for the Muslim community in South Africa
However, Doritos located in USA, UK and Canada are certified halal, as their productions contained several ingredients such as
Cheese and whey, which contain no Halal enzymes.
PepsiCo, the company behind Doritos had confirmed that their products are not Halal, and because of this, they are not labeled Halal through a tweet from their part:
Another email communication confirmed this more, with an email sent to them:
I hope your are well.
Just wondering if any of the Doritos Chips are Halal products or not? if not, is there any Halal alternatives ?
Thank you in advance.
Their answer had come as follows :
Thank you for contacting PepsiCo Foods.
All our Doritos flavors, have animal enzymes except Doritos Bold BBQ and Doritos Sweet Chili Heat.
If you want to avoid these enzymes, you might want to avoid our snacks that list “cheese” and “whey” as ingredients. Only a few snacks have animal flavours and they will be listed on the ingredient statement, not hidden under “natural flavours.”
Our non-seasoned, salted-only snacks, such as Lay’s Classic, Ruffles Original, Fritos, Tostitos, Original SunChips and Rold Gold Pretzels, do not have enzymes of any kind.
Thank you again for choosing Frito Lay snacks.
We will continue to provide the information you need to make safe, great-tasting choices.PepsiCo Consumer Relations Representative
