Useful Uses for Whey!!


  1. Use it in any bread or bread type product that calls for the addition of water or milk.
  2. Freeze it for later use. I like to make whey ice-cubes to freeze it in easy to use pieces.
  3. It can be used in stews and soups in place of some broth or water.
  4. Can be used in place of milk when making mashed potatoes.
  5. Can be used in homemade smoothies and frosties.
  6. Can be used to pour over chicken feed, cat food, or dog food for extra pet treat!
  7. Diluted with water, it makes an excellent feed for your plants and helps your compost when added to it.
  8. Use it to make ricotta cheese. It is the base of ricotta. I have not tried this yet, but it will happen soon.
  9. Use it as a meat marinade...great when combined with pressed garlic and onions.
