Is Whey All Wheat Or Is There Milk Whey?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I am a bit confused!! I know that whey is a wheat product, but there is also whey in lots of ice cream products and cottage cheeses. Is this the same thing or is it milk whey? Or is there a difference? I have just been assuming that all whey is bad whey. thanks a bunch for help!

Not sure if this posted the first time...

My question is: is all whey bad? I have been avoiding all whey, but have wondered if whey in dairy products is a different kind and ok?

There is no whey in wheat, whey is always from dairy.

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet,

Eating her curds and whey. ~~~~~~~~~~~~(more or less aka "cottage cheese")

There came a big spider,

He sat down beside her.

And frightened Miss Muffet away!

Hello, we have been confused about this too. How come it olny sometimes says from dairy after it says Whey. If it is always from Dairy why does it only sometimes say this:

Whey Powder (Wheat)?

thanks.

Perhaps they have added wheat to it either as a thickener, binder or to up the protein level. Whey is a dairy product though. Below I have pasted info from the Whey Protein Institute

http://www.wheyoflife.org/faq.cfm#21

What is whey protein?

A: Whey protein is a high quality protein powder from cow's milk. Milk has two proteins: Casein (approximately 80%) and Whey Protein (approximately 20%). Whey protein is more soluble than casein and also has a higher quality rating. It is often referred to as the "Gold Standard" of protein as it is the most nutritious protein available.

Q: Does whey protein contain gluten or wheat protein?

A: No, pure whey protein does not contain any gluten. However, protein bars and beverages often contain gluten so always check the product ingredient label prior to purchase if it is not allowed in your diet

I have also found whey protein powders made from rice milk and hemp milk. Not sure of the protein content, but for those intolerant of dairy...

Welcome to the forum, Cynthia! Unfortunately, this is a really old thread from 2009. I would hate to have you wait for a response. You can start a new topic, or feel free to respond a current post.
