A great many people use whey protein as part of their diet daily. What are they using it to accomplish? Whey will help you to reduce body fat, gain lean muscle, lower food cravings by keeping your stomach feeling full and increased energy and alertness. You may wonder how whey is made. It is actually a by-product of milk. Milk is made of two proteins, casein and whey. Whey protein can be separated from the casein in milk or formed as a by-product of cheese making.
When milk coagulates it becomes a solution of 5% lactose in water which is loaded with minerals. This leftover by-product is called whey. About 20% of the protein in milk is whey and the other 80% is called casein (the curds in cottage cheese).
The whey protein (liquid) is separated from the casein and then sent through a filtering process to eliminate the non-whey ingredients. The whey is then purified in a procedure called “ion exchange”. Then it will be dried and turned into a powder. All that is left is packaging and sold for consumption. Whey is generally thought to contain all 9 essential amino acids and to be very low in lactose content as well as to be a complete protein.
