Seriously though, is it? There are so many unfamiliar names on the ingretients of some of the stuff I have been looking.

Whey is a milk product and safe from a gluten perspective.

Generally, it is the milky liquid in cottage cheese. In the nursery rhyme when Little Miss Muffett was eating curds and whey she was eating cottage cheese.
