Is liquid nitrogen halaal

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by AnswersToFatawa

Salaams Sheikh,

I wanted to know if it is Halal to use Liquid Nitrogen for deserts etc. It is used at times to help make the food/desert more appealing too. If you could look into it and let me know InshaAllah it would be very much appreciated.

Jazakallah khayr

 

Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

We have contacted SANHA (South African National Halaal Authority) who confirmed that liquid nitrogen[1] is permissible.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

[1]  liquid nitrogen is used to make ice cream, flash-freeze herbs or freeze alcohol. Bartenders will swirl it around glasses to chill them, so that the supercooled glass will emanate a dramatic-looking vapor. (Liquid nitrogen creates a fog when exposed to air.) – http://healthland.time.com/2012/10/10/why-liquid-nitrogen-is-dangerous/
