Experts Answer: Is Whey Vegan? –

Is Whey Vegan?

I have a question about whey. If I use it for protein shakes, can I drink it? I know that whey does not have lactose in it, but I have heard that it has something in it called casein, which has been linked to milk allergies.

    whey is not vegan, since it is of animal origin, whey is a by-product obtained from cheese production, so if you are following a vegan protein diet, it would not be compatible. There are plenty of vegan foods, as well as powdered, plant-based supplements, that are rich in protein. Nature is full of amazing 100% vegan-friendly products packed with protein; vegetables, nuts and of course the tofu.
