Healthy Eating with Whey Isolate Protein
Our first question is why whey?
The answer: Why not? It is a delicious and easy way to add protein to meals. We discovered Integrated Supplements Whey Isolate Protein last summer and have been shaking it up, mixing it in and sprinkling it on ever since. The product is kosher certified OU-D, and is available in several flavors – strawberry, chocolate, vanilla, and the newest flavor...chocolate mint.
Integrated Supplements Whey Isolate Protein powder is free of artificial additives and preservatives, and is recommended for the entire family, from toddler to senior. The product has been awarded the distinction of “highest quality protein supplement” through Labdoor, the prestigious San Francisco based company. This recognition is considered the “Academy Award” of the supplement world. Wow! The products can be purchased at Target stores across the U.S.
So, what exactly is whey? It is the watery part of milk separated from curds during the making of cheese. Whey was originally thought of as a waste product; in fact it was sold as inexpensive animal feed. Researchers eventually found that the protein portion of whey had remarkable health benefits for humans. And now, there is the convenient and flavorful whey powder.
We do try to eat well, but in our family of foodies, eating healthy has to include deliciousness. That’s what we feel makes Integrated Supplements Whey Isolate Protein so unique and special. Adding it to recipes enhances the taste and adds another layer of flavor.
Ways with whey
Some (like my daughter) enjoy protein shakes. She has one every day for breakfast; her favorite is chocolate. Some parents add whey to their children’s milk or hot chocolate, or they mix up a strawberry milkshake with fresh berries and strawberry whey. As for KosherEye, we like to mix it in as an easy flavorful, healthful addition to recipes. In some cases, it is our culinary secret, a hidden addition.

We have added 2 scoops of whey to dry cake mix batter. Whey protein powder mixes easily into batters. In addition to being healthful, it deepens the flavor. We add the vanilla whey to yellow cake mixes and the chocolate whey to chocolate cake mixes – and yes, chocolate or chocolate mint whey add a layer of flavor to brownies.
Pancakes or waffle mixes
Add just a scoop or two to boost the protein content; mix the whey into the batter and then place in an oiled fry pan or griddle, or add to heated wafflemaker. Check out our recipe.
