    True Nutrition Recalls Whey Protein - Made From Milk - Because It Has Milk

    Whey protein has been primarily used by weightlifters but more recently gotten popular with other groups who need food supplements because of their diets. Whey protein is the protein contained in whey, the watery portion of milk that separates from  curds when making cheese. The other protein from milk is casein protein.

    So it sounds a little strange that True Nutrition is recalling its Whey Protein because its label does not disclose that milk is the source of the whey,
    when it is by definition derived from milk. The concern is people who are allergic to milk might have a reaction and the recall is voluntary. Obviously, people will not have to return it if they are not allergic to milk.

    It would seem to make sense that most people allergic to milk know that whey protein is derived from milk, but the company is recalling the products anyway.  Because it simply says 'whey protein' on the label and not 'whey protein which is the
    the protein contained in whey, the watery portion of milk that separates from  curds when making cheese.'
