Boosting protein intake, and thickening a smoothie; that is about it.

Oh, and making your tuffet bigger and draining your bank account.

A milk substitute, like dry milk.

It’s used in some recipes I know of for oatmeal, quinoa, and cream/cottage-cheese with fruit, to supplement the protein of the meal.

When it comes to food products, there are more uses than you can shake a stick at. Whey is a cheap substitute for more expensive ingredients in so many products that you would probably be shocked- – cheap ice cream for example. If you’re not yet in the habit of reading the labels on packaged foods, I urge you to take up the practice. Believe me, it will be an education well worth the trouble.

@zenvelo So, can it be used like cornstarch, to thicken sauces?

Do athletes add it to their drinks, like milkshakes, to add protein to their diets?

@2davidc8 Yes. It can be added to some recipes too, for example the ones I mentioned, and some others.

Can it be added to things like milk shakes and ice cream, without cooking?
