The dairy products industry produces a vast number of products ranging from fresh milk to ice creams and frozen desserts. Dairy is one of the oldest food industries. Cheese, which has been produced for about 5000 years, is one of the classical fabricated foods in the human diet (Fox et al., 2000). A wealth of information is available on all aspects of milk and dairy processing; however, the processors generally do not take into account the needs of the Muslim consumer. It is appropriate to mention that producing halal products is very similar to producing kosher products, although halal requirements are a bit simpler.

For a comparative analysis between kosher and halal, the reader is encouraged to consult Chapter 25.
