There are about 1.8 billion Muslims in the world eating halal in accordance with the regulations in their sacred book - the Koran. The study covered a sample of 120 halal and conventional food products from Slovenian and Bosnian (BIH) markets. Food products were sampled in four stores in Slovenia and in four stores in BIH. With the help of the Traffic Light model for food nutrition profiling, the nutrition profile was determined for 120 products in the category of halal and conventional foods. Among all foods from both groups (halal and conventional) 33% (40) of the products were nutritionally more appropriate, and 67% (80) were nutritionally less appropriate
foods. Among halal foods, 35% (21) were nutritionally more appropriate and 65% (39) were nutritionally less appropriate. In the case of conventional products, 32% (19) were found to be nutritionally more suitable and 68% (41) of them had nutritionally less suitable composition. In the five food groups (confectionery, nonalcoholic beverages, milk and dairy products, meat and meat products, fruit and
vegetable products), more than 1/3 of the foods in a certain food group had declared the same additives, regarding the food category (halal and conventional). The fruit and vegetable products group had the same additives stated on less than 1/3 of halal and conventional products, respectively. On both explored markets 27% of the halal products had halal sign present on the face of the product.
