Abstract: Almost 85% of the entire milk utilized for manufacturing cheese/paneer is dismissing as whey. Most of the milk plants do not have a decent pre-treatment practice for the jettisoning of whey and the discarding of whey. Whey deemed as the most significant pollutant of the dairy enterprise, not solely due to its high organic content but also owing to its lofty volume.
Whey protein-enriched method can develop for end groups such as infants, cardiac-risk group, and diabetics. Whey is assuredly an attractive growth medium for several kinds of microorganisms. The notable decline of BOD with the subsequent generation of valuable bio-products such as ethanol, bacteriocin and biogas has accomplished. Therefore, now whey is not a pollutant but a possible raw material for innovative products and processes.
