Dubai Municipality responds to Oreo rumours

Oreo biscuits have alcohol, the rumours suggested.

The Dubai Municipality has responded to the circulating rumours that Oreo biscuits sold in UAE markets allegedly contain a small amount of alcohol.

Dubai Municipality denied the rumour on social media, stating that the product in the market is ‘halal’ and alcohol free.

It explained that there was a mistake translating the food ingredients into Arabic. The word ‘chocolate liquor’ was literally translated to alcohol, on the other hand, it should have been translated to cocoa paste, the municipality added.

A Dubai Municipality official told Khaleej Times all Oreo biscuits distributed in the UAE are manufactured in Bahrain. “Therefore, the question of not being Halal- compliant does not arise. There was a confusion over a tweet from some users who tagged an Oreo (Mondelez) account in another country.”

The official added, “We have investigated the tweet; it has nothing to do with the Middle East supply and demand chain of the biscuit.”
