SANHA Comments:

Food contamination with foreign objects which might harm one physically is a matter of general concern. A Muslim is most assuredly also concerned that spiritually harmful substances do not contaminate his food. This is an integral cornerstone of the SANHA mission, that the forbidden should not contaminate the permissible.

Muslims should also be aware of juices (particularly from dates and grapes) that while originally pure and permissible, may become impure and unlawful. If exposed to heat over a period, juices may ferment and become intoxicating. If the juice thickens, foams and froths bubbles by itself, then it should be discarded.
