Perhaps it’s time to upgrade the good old saying “to separate wheat from chaff” to “to separate whey from cheese”. Whey, which is a protein-rich byproduct of cheese-making, is made from the liquid residue collected from cheese manufacturing.
Once considered no more than cheese waste, whey is now a coveted source of protein for the fitness enthusiast. It helps people meet their 60 gm/day protein requirements—the amount of protein a human body needs in a day—without the need for a protein-rich meal.
Now, India is a highly protein-deficient country. Over 80% Indians are protein deficient as per a 2017 Indian Market Research Bureau report.
