Before we tell you why you should be interested in goat milk whey, we should probably take a few minutes to explain what it is exactly. If you are reading this in the United States, chances are excellent you don’t know the first thing about goat milk whey.
But after reading this you will.
Whey is the liquid remaining after milk has been curdled and strained. The curdling process separates the milk into milk solids (curds) and liquid whey. For years in this country, the story pretty much ended there. Cottage cheese was made, as were other types of cheese, but the whey?
It should come as no surprise that in other countries, whey is a very popular drink. It is popular as well as whey cheese and whey butter. But in the United States it was originally considered a waste product and was dumped into rivers in vast quantities. Eventually it was discovered that this practice was causing algae to grow. So the whey was then spread over crops as a fertilizer.
Fast forward to today. The nutritional value of whey has now been discovered and accepted, and it is one of the most popular health supplements on the market.
So, what about that nutritional value of whey? We have already discussed, in an earlier article, the benefits of goat milk vs cow milk, so let’s discuss the nutritional value of goat milk whey in particular.

Because of this effect, goat milk whey is very popular for muscle-building and overall physical fitness. A variety of scientific studies show that whey can help in weight loss, help the digestive system, help in combating Type 2 Diabetes, help in cancer prevention, and aid in strengthening bones.
We could continue but the point has been made.
