How to Make Whey – And 5 Ways to Use It
Today, I am sharing with you How to Make Whey and 5 ways to use it! Plus I share a bit of interesting information that you may not have heard of before.
Did you know that there are two types of whey? Sweet and Acidic. In this video, you’ll learn what the difference is and which one you need for making fermented foods and drinks.
Lacto-fermentation recipes frequently call for whey as an ingredient. So it’s important to know what it is, which form will work for fermentation, and how to make it at home.
Making whey at home is important because it is generally not something you will see sold in stores. Certainly, there are all sorts of whey powders, but these are not what you want for fermentation purposes. So it’s best to know how to make it homemade.

It’s easy to make the right type of whey that you’ll need for your fermentation recipes. You just need to extract liquid from plain yogurt or plain kefir. The liquid you obtain is whey, and you can use it as a starter for fermentation. But that’s not all.
Whey has many uses which you’ll learn about in this video. And you may be surprised at some of the unusual ways you can incorporate this nutritious probiotic rich liquid into your diet!
