The Sneaky Whey to Add Protein To Your Diet

May 20, 2015 2 min read

Anyone that loves Greek yogurt knows that it comes with a layer of liquid atop (and that you very carefully need to peel back the protection seal so that it doesn't end up all over your clothes) How many of you dump the liquid down the drain? Though it's tempting, there are tons of nutritional benefits you toss down the drain with it.

It's called liquid whey, and it's the by-product of cheese or casein .Both liquid whey and powder are derived from whey protein, which promotes fat loss, increases your lean mass and protects your bones. Whey cool! (I'm done with the puns, I swear)

Think of it as a super liquid: although it predominantly made up of carbohydrates, it's also loaded with nutrients, including 25 percent of your daily calcium requirement and 10 percent of your daily potassium needs. Not to mention it contains protein and vitamin A.

Liquid whey is high in carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals, compared with whey protein powder, which is higher in total protein. One scoop of whey protein powder, on average, has around 130 calories and 20 grams of protein, whereas one cup of liquid whey has about 60 calories and only approximately two grams of protein.

So, why would you opt for liquid whey over its protein powder?

The liquid is whey in its most natural, unprocessed (and paleo-diet friendly!) form.

Liquid whey also presents an easy way to sneak nutrients into other meals. Though the taste can sometimes be slightly sweet or tangy, it’s relatively bland, making it an ingredient packed with loads of nutrients and not much flavor. This combination makes it great as a substitute for water or buttermilk.
