I have been using cultured whey as an ingredient in our food and beverages for the last few years. I learned about its importance in diet and maintaining a healthy gut flora through the Nourishing Traditions Cookbook and other books similar to traditional cooking. Other cultures around the world use this same ingredient in the foods they make everyday. Throughout time it has played a critical role in the health and happiness of all societies, especially with the old and the very young. I know the American diet is the most deficient in this important lacto-fermented liquid. Here are a few reminders about whey.
~"Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet eating her curds and whey"
~In Switzerland it is called "the old man's drink"- it is believed to make old men feel young again
~Whey is loaded with B vitamins- most Americans are severely deficient
