Halal Genie only offers halal meat cuts. But what is Halal?

Halal is Arabic for permissible. Halal food is that which adheres to Islamic law, as defined in the Quran.
The Islamic form of slaughtering animals or poultry, dhabiha,uses a swift cut to the jugular vein, carotid artery and windpipe.

Benefits of Halal:
In Islam, all living things are to be treated with the utmost care and respect. Similarly, the animals reared for consumption are also to be cared for and should be reared in good conditions. This eventually ensures that the animal is not sick at the time of the slaughter and no disease is transferred to the consumer.

An animal’s throat is cut in one swift motion with a razor-sharp knife. Unconsciousness is achieved within seconds and death occurs due to cerebral hypoxia not blood loss. Some experts say that the animal killed in this way does not suffer if the cut is made quickly and cleanly because it loses consciousness before the brain can perceive any pain.

Once an animal is slaughtered, in the Halal meat process, it must bleed out. This ensures that all the toxins are released from the animal and it is safe to eat for the end consumer. Hence, it is healthier for the person eating the meat. In addition to being healthy, the resulting meat turns out to be tender and much tastier to the regular meat when cooked.
