One of the ways to achieve this is by being conscious of the food and drink you consume during the month of Ramadan and if it is permitted by Islamic law.

The official Prime website had stated that the drink was not halal on their frequently asked questions page. This lead to a lot of confusion that prompted Prime co-owner KSI to confirm that the information on the website was incorrect and that the drink is indeed halal.

The answer has since been changed on the website and it states that while Prime products "do not hold a formal Halal Certification" they do not "constitute any ingredients or manufacturing processes that would require such certification."
