Whey – the healing water
(another one from best out of waste series)
Milk is made of two proteins, casein and whey. Whey is the liquid remaining after milk has been curdled and strained like in the process of Paneer making.
Whey protein is considered a complete protein as it contains all 9 essential amino acids.
Do not throw away this water left after making of panir i.e whey, which is rich in good quality n easily digestable proteins. It is also a good source of Thiamin, Vitamin B12, Pantothenic Acid, Magnesium, Potassium, Zinc and Selenium, and a very good source of Riboflavin, Calcium and Phosphorus.
Can be added to rotis, dal, soups, khichdi, gravies for vegetables
