Is whey protein concentrate Ḥalāl?
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
As-salāmu ʿalaykum wa-raḥmatullāhi wa-barakātuh
Whey protein as a derivative of cow’s milk is in itself Ḥalāl. However, the actual Ḥalāl status of any specific whey protein concentrate will depend on the process involved in separating the whey from the milk and therafter filtering it. This is because the factor of contamination can occur during the process. Therefore, there can be no general ruling with regards to the Ḥalāl status of the whey protein concentrate contained in any product. For the Ḥalāl status of the whey protein concentrate in any product, it is necessary that a research be conducted into the procedures involved in extracting the whey protein contained in that specific product.
