Background and Objective: Developing civilization processes and systems based on the Qur'anic principles is one of the major issues in the field of epistemics and management in the Islamic community. Nutrition is one of the most vital processes in life and, based on Islamic principles, it plays a key role in securing the religion and world for human. From the perspective of Islamic ideology, nutrition affects the body, thought and faith of humans, although foods do not have the same appearance. God has set the highest standard of quality for human food.

Methods: This is an qualitative content analysis study based on Quranic verses relying on the interpretations as an ignored aspect of nutrition. To analyze the word Tayyib, first, its meaning was investigated in lexicographers’ studies, and from the sum of their opinions, we came to a comprehensive and obstructive meaning. In order to achieve the standard of Tayyib food, the word Tayyib was analyzed in the Holy Qur'an and semantically examined. Using semantic network design, its semantic core was extracted and, based on it, the indicators of tayyeb food were determined. The authors declared no conflict of interest.

Results: Tayyib food is a pure and developmental food that is perfectly in harmony with the body. Also, it is pleasing, clean, tasty and in good condition, and has a beneficial effect. Furthermore, it is non-harmful to the soul and body. Halal food, on the other hand, is anything that is not forbidden and tayyeb is used to mean something which is in harmony with human spirit as against khabith, which human spirit hates. Conceptually, tayyeb food refers to good, useful, healthy, non-harmful, halal, clean food that is in harmony with human spirit and without any contamination within or in appearance. It refers to a food with complete nutritional values.

Conclusion: Tayyib food indices are used as the main elements of a comprehensive and process standard for the entire food cycle from production to consumption. It is considered as a quality standard for optimizing food processes. For downloading the full-text of this article please click here.
