You may not want to consume whey as it is extremely mucus forming.
Here is some info on it I came across a while ago:
"Look at whey, the putrid, yellow-green by-product of cheese production. Only about 10% of the milk used to make cheese ends up as cheese. The rest...seperates out as vile smelling, vile tasting whey...whey is 100 to 200 times stronger a pollutant than residential sewage and most municipal sewage plants cannot treat it adequately...whey looks like pus and smells like vomit. It does not belong in your food."
