Halal Protein Powder - Ultimate Nutrition (PROSTAR WHEY PROTEIN NATURAL)

(there is an updated topic regarding Ultimate Nutrition's Halal Protein Powder... Please read it here)


Assalaam aleykom WBT. In one of my previous posts, I blogged about my row with GNC Malaysia regarding the halal status of their GNC brand Whey Protein powder. Back then, I was told that the GNC Whey Protein powder was halal by the sales person, when in actual fact, the IFANCA halal certification that GNC has (they do have halal cert btw) did not cover that particular product. So, in short, there is no sure say that GNC has any halal Whey Protein Powder under their own brand name. To be safe for dunya and akhirat, just assume GNC has no halal whey protein or even any halal whey protein supplments for Muslims. This only relates to the GNC brands that is.

But a few days back, I was chatting with one of my friends. She was asking me about protein powders... and about which brands are halal protein powders. As for myself, I was sure that Herbalife had some halal powders, but due to Herbalife being a Network (multi-level) Marketing company, I reckon their prices would be a wee bit expensive than the others (I think la... if any Herbalife reps terbaca this post, please do correct me... cuz kalau betul murah than competition, then I oso want to buy :D).

But other than Herbalife, I was not sure... ada ke tak yg halal. My fren had a tip however, that there was another brand... Ultimate Nutrition. They have a line of Protein Powders that has halal certification! Walaweh! Kok ada halal cert! after checking, I found out that it was true... because it was stated on the IFANCA website also! (http://www.ifanca.org). The product's name - PROSTAR WHEY PROTEIN NATURAL *the flavor is natural that is... (View the halal certification my other post).

This is good news, as I think many Mulsims out there are looking for halal alternatives. So, for those of you looking for halal protein powders or a halal protein supplement, either for supplementary purposes, or as a more convenient way to get your protein intake (for pre or post workout meals for example), then I think, Prostar Whey Protein is the answer. The website however only states that the NATURAL flavor has halal certification. There are also other flavors e.g. Vanilla and Chocolate. But sepatutnya lah... these should be halal also (I think... don't take my word for it. You might wanna email ultimate nutrition.... DONT EMAIL the distributors. Get it straight from the horse's mouth! :P).
Okes. In case anyone else has info on other halal protein supplements... please do tell me... as this info can be shared for the benefit of the Muslim (or even Kosher) community :D

Selamaaat :D

Ramadan 1993,
Yes possibly you could obtain it from www.nutritionpark.com ( I am not affiliated with them in any way; but i saw them carrying it in singapore.)

If you do need any further help do email me at academicangels@gmail.com

Salam bro.

Thanks for covering this. I used the syntha-6 protein before from GNC (Not manufactured by GNC but distributed). Same story, the sales told me it's halal (i think his only justification is that the product doesn't contain animal sources). But when checking with the manufacturer, no guarantee is given on the halality, so I stopped using it.

Apart from Herbalife, can also try Cosway as halal alternative. They have cheaper protein, but quality is questionable and the taste is bad (plus, does not mix well). I also saw few proteins in Fitness Concept stores that carry halal logos. Forgot to check the brand.

Nice to have found this blog. Since I'm in usm, we should hang out sometime.

SAlaam Zul :D

Glad you found this post informative :D

As for the alternatives u mentioned, I personally tak berapa berani nak beli the MLM brands... mainly because some of them (e.g. Herbalife) have been reported to contain harmful ingredients and can effect the kidney or something. But it wasnt the protein powder... some other supplement they were selling. Besides, MLMs main target is not good products (altho many testimonials claim otherwise)... the main concern is expanding the pyramids... So I try to stay as far away as possible from any MLM products.

But Im not belittling ure opinion. Just my view about MLM stuff :D

Anyway, lots of thanks that u mentioned them anyway. At least I can update my database about such stuff :D

Oh, now Im not at USM anymore. Im already back at UPM since I have to report for duty....

Salaaam

NUTRILITE makes a great halal soy/milk protein powder. It contains a natural (non-syntetic) supply of all 21 amino acids and has 10g of protein per 12.5g of powder. Plus the NUTRILITE powder is flavorless which means you can mix it with your favorite drink. I order mine online at:

Check out the link for more information on NUTRILITE protein powder.

Alamak. Protein2 MLM ni... saya mcm kurang minat... quality mungkin ok cuma mahal la selalunya MLM ni. Sbb nak kena bayar kos barang satu hal, level2 yg kat atas semua pon kiranya nak kena bayar gak :) Anywayz, tq for the info.

I have no idea Anon. But insyaAllaah if I remember, Ill do the check :) Salaam

budin said...

aslmkum..., the certifte shw tht muscle juice 2544 is halal, what about the other product from ultimate nutrition like muscle juice revolution 2600, is it halal? cuz i'm really intrst for it

Anonymous said...

bro,

it doesn't matter if its halal or not. GOD will not punish u for that. GOD sees the heart. it is all that matters.
We are not saved by our works & cannot! Only the saving blood of the lamb can cleanse our sins.
We can't save ourselves by praying 5 times a day, fasting 1 mth out of every year, not eating pork,etc.
We are not under LAW but under GRACE.

Alfian_Troxion said...

I believe ure referring to the atonement, that Jesus (Alihissalaam) died for all of humanity's sin? Unfortunately I don't quite share this opinion (obviously since I am a Muslim). I reccomend you try to look it up also bro in the bible my brother. There's a passage somewhere in the gospels talking about "The soul that sinneth, it shall die. But those that do righteous deeds, it shall definitely live".... I know its not the exact words... but basically it's somewhere very2 near there :) ... In all, let us pray to God that we all are led to the right path , insyaAllaah (if you insist on not using the name Allaah... then God willing). Ma'assalaam

Alfian_Troxion said...

Alamak Budin... sorry termiss ure comment. I've actually just received an email from UN about their latest halal cert. InsyaAllaah Ill post it on my blog.

However, I dont see 2600 on the list. 2544 is there :) So I think if you really wanna use muscle juice, 2544 should be ok :) Because I strongly believe that these supplements act as mere (real) food substitutes only... Nothing beats what God created, right? But I also understand that nowadays, due to mass farming and all, the quality of the meat has also gone down :(

GNC WHEY PROTEIN DGN ULTIMATE NUTRITION MUSCLE JUICE HALAL TAK?SAYA CONFIUS

Alfian_Troxion said...

Waalaikum salaam Anon...

Dari apa yg saya faham, Ultimate Nutrition Muscle Juice adalah Halal based on the certification yg saya cerita kat http://alfiantroxion.blogspot.com/2011/11/ultimate-nutrition-prostar-100-whey.html.

As for GNC, saya tak berapa pasti, sebab dia orang takde provide halal cert kat saya masa saya beli dulu. Tapi sekarang tak sure... lagipun saya tak pernah email orang GNC lagi. Kalau rajin, mungkin Anon boleh email dia orang? dan kemudian boleh share info dengan kita semua :D

Tapi, as for GNC tu... dulu dia orang kata mmg rennet yg dia orang guna bukan from animal. Cuma sesetengah orang mungkin akan rasa was2 sebab equipment yg dugunakan utk buat whey protein dia orang tu sama dengan equipment yg dingunakan utk proses produk2 lain... :) Wallaahua'lam.

thanks 4 info,nak tanya,ultimate nutrition juice muscle tu boleh ke prempuan minum utk gain weight?

Alfian_Troxion said...

Anon: No prob. Glad that I could share some useful info :)

As for boleh ke tak nak guna Muscle Juice utk gain weight... well, I myself am not a fitness guru... nor am I a qualified trainer or nutritionist. But from what I do know... to gain weight, what you basically need to do is consume more calories than what you expend...

Tapi, kalau you consume (eat!) to much calories, tapi tak expend... you'll gain weight as well.However, its gonna be FAT weight (berat lemak). We dont want that right...pasal nanti berat dan flabby dan badan tak selesa ya amat.

What you might want to be doing is to consume more calories... but also go on a weight gain program or something, one that helps you gain muscle. But dont worry too much laaa... in case you think that ure gonna look like Miss Olympia or any of those muscle girls kalau start pegi gym to gain muscle. Susah gila nak jadik mcm tu, and most of the time, kena bedal banyak supplements and also (sad to say) steroids....

So, if you wanna gain weight... Muscle juice can be used SUPPLEMENTED by a good weight gain exercise + diet programme. You see, muscle juice ka, protein powder ka, or apa2 ka... to me (and too many), is only a substitute for food. Most of the time, they're a whole lot inferior. LOL! Sebab who can beat Allaah's creationg right? So, dont think that they can deliver miracles. Since they are made by food technologists (ada ke? hehehe) for convenience sake.

Yang palin penting... is that you go on the proper food intake regime (or people also call diet)... and that must be accompanied by a good excercise (weights and cardio) routine as well :) InsyaAllaah, then can gain weight :D Hope this has helped...

thanks a lot...sebenarnya i want to gain weight a lil more cuz im a skinny.so i takut je minum muscle jus ni nanti muscle yg lebih..hehee...diaa ada testoran hormon ke dlm muscle jus ni?huuu...nnti kang jd lain..

Alfian_Troxion said...

Anon... thanks for returning and commenting :)

Anywayz, like I said, kalau setakat minum benda tu je, muscle takkan naik 'mgaically'. Orang2 bina badan laki atau perempuan, dia orang makan benda2 yg mcm ni gak (supplements), dan most take performance enhancers. Tapi kalau setakat amik benda2 tu je, tak jadi apa. Tu pasal dia orang siang malam kat gym (well, tak la siang malam... tapi kerap la. hehehe). Kiranya, dia orang go thru muscle 'destroying' process (time angkat2 besi berat semua tu... lepas tu recovery. Time recovery tu la makanan2 dan supplements2 ni main peranan. Kalau kena gaya can amaun pemakanan, baru la naik otot. Kalau tak kena, tak naik! That's why bodybuilding is an art in itself :)

As for yourself, jgn risau. patutnye takde la hormon2 pelik dalam Muscle Juice tu, pasal kalau tak, dah masuk bawah kategori lain dah tu... hehehe. So if you decide to take it, with the intent of gaining weight... follow a fitness program as well. Kalau setakat makan je, mmg susah nak naik. TAPI!... kalau makan benda tu je... n tak buat apa2... ada chance jugak jadik gemuk! as in berlemak! But you dont want that right :) Plus, if u say ure skinny, that must mean ure metabolism is quite high... which will make u susah nak gemok anywayz. hehehe

hope this info has helped.

kalau nampak mcm ingredients dia sama... then halal lah gamaknye :) Rasa2 buleh buat kesimpulan camtu... Tapi ni pendapat saya je la. Kalau saya, mmg saya kata halal lah :)

To be extra sure, kot2 buleh email dia orang kat ultimate nutrition. customer service exec dia reply sangat2 laju :)

Encik/Puan/Cik Kerlipan Cahaya :) T kasih di atas informasi anda :D Kalau Julia dah kata camtu, maka ia bermakna benda tu mmg belum ada sijil halal. Dan hanya Muscle Juice 2544 Chocolate dan Vanilla saja ada sijil halal. Jadi, to be safe, mungkin tak perlu consume MJ selain dari 2 flavours tu :) Thansk for emailing them btw :D
