Muslim Menu runs into high-speed trouble in Spain

    Spanish state controlled RENFE railways have attempted to produce special menus for Muslims, but have failed in this mission, according to the standards proposed by the Halal Institute of the Islamic Junta in Spain. The organization has said that all the train company did, was remove alcohol and pork, but not control other matters of food preparation including how animals are sacrificed, and fats used in cooking. RENFE denies the criticism, saying that the _Muslim Menu’ meets requirements established in the Quran. In addition to the halal menu, the rail system also launched special menus available on high speed routes, to accommodate vegetarian, diabetic, kosher, and low-salt food.
