Milk is made of two different types of protein. These proteins are known as casein and whey. Whey protein can be separated from the casein in milk or formed as a by-product of cheese making. Whey protein is considered a protein that is complete. Reason being that whey contains all 9 essential amino acids. It is also low in it’s lactose content.
