What in the World Is Whey

Just like little Miss Muffet, who sat on a tuffet, you have probably eaten a fair bit of "whey" in your time.

If you are a label reader you have probably seen "whey" listed as an ingredient. If you regularly consume protein bars, chances are high you have eaten whey. The question I have is, do you know what whey is?

Take this one question quiz and see if you know your way around whey.

I knew it was milk. When I was vegan I couldn't eat anything with whey in it and it was so frustrating!!

Why I answered "wheat" is beyond my knowledge,lol. I know it's milk since my dad is a health nut and he taught that. Oh well... I love whey protein shakes although lately i switched to genisoy. I have allergies 24/7 so I never noticed if it was worse when I was having whey shakes.

Easy: the answer is dairy/milk. Just think of cottage cheese (i.e. curds and whey).
