ABSTRACT

Whey is a by-product of dairy industry obtained during cheese and casein production. It contains approximately 93% of water. Main solid ingredients include lactose, whey proteins and mineral salts. Due to the characteristic taste, unprocessed whey is not an attractive product for consumers. However, the valuable composition of nutrients, as well as increasing demand for healthy food products, contributes to the development of accepted by consumers whey drinks. Until now a wide variety of whey beverages were developed. Among them can be distinguished unfermented and fermented beverages, probiotic beverages, refreshing soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, diet beverages, high-protein sport drinks and powder beverages. Manufacture of beverages is an important group of methods of whey management in food production. The aim of this article was to review the current literature related to the production of various types of whey-based beverages.

Key words: whey, beverages, new food products.
