So, what is whey powder?

Whey powder is a high-quality protein powder derived from milk. It is made by separating the liquid whey from the curds during the cheese-making process, then drying and pulverizing it into a fine powder. Whey powder is a popular dietary supplement among athletes and bodybuilders due to its high protein content and ability to aid in muscle recovery and growth. Additionally, it contains essential amino acids and other nutrients like calcium and vitamin B12 that support overall health and wellness. Whey powder can be added to smoothies, oatmeal, or baked goods for an easy boost of protein.
