Casein & whey

Whey is a by-product of the cheese making process. Traditionally this product was disposed of in liquid form. However, recognition of the value of wheys components has seen the production and utilisation of whey powders and protein concentrates increase significantly in recent years.
Food-grade whey powder is used in the manufacture of ice-cream, bakery products (cakes, biscuits), chocolate flavouring, infant formula, yogurt, beverages and processed meat. Industrial uses include animal feed (for pigs, horses and poultry), calf milk replacer and even as a carrier for herbicides.
