The Ministry of Public Health of Qatar has stated that high protein bars from Mars, Bounty, Snickers, and Milky Way are banned in Qatar because it contains protein from non-halal source.
These products do not comply with the halal requirements observed by Muslims and were recalled from the market. However, the regular products (chocolate bars) from the same brand, differ from these high protein chocolate bars and are still allowed to be sold in the market.
