So, what is whey permeate?

Whey permeate is a dairy ingredient that's obtained by removing protein and fat from whey. The resulting powder is high in lactose and minerals like calcium, potassium, and sodium. It's commonly used as a food additive to improve flavor, texture, and nutritional value in various applications like baked goods, dairy products, and processed foods. Whey permeate can also be used as an inexpensive alternative to other sweeteners and milk solids. However, some people with lactose intolerance may need to avoid consuming it due to its high lactose content.
