Whey is a protein-rich liquid component of milk that is produced as a byproduct of the cheese-making process. When the water, fat, and lactose are removed from whey through various processes, the result is a whey protein concentrate or whey protein isolate, which usually takes a powdered form.
Whey protein is also extremely versatile. It is used in powdered drink mixes, sports bars, meal replacement shakes, healthy baked goods, flavored waters, and many other products. Including whey protein in your daily diet with such products is one of the best ways to increase your overall health and well-being. Whey protein is the ultimate “functional food”.
Whey protein comprises a full range of elements scientifically researched and clinically demonstrated to have a beneficial impact upon the well-being of people of varying ages, lifestyles, levels of physical activity and overall health.
