  Title Whey milk: The next best thing to breast milk
Journal J Clin Chiropr Pediatr. 1999 May;4(1):253-256
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Breastfeeding should always be encouraged as it provides infants with the optimum nutrition. Whey milk may be considered as a substitute for breast milk for infants where breastfeeding is not possible as it is the more compatible for the infant in composition and nutritional requirements than dairy or soy formula, and less allergenic. In this paper, the author attempts to outline the benefits of whey as an alternative for those infants where breastfeeding is not an option, especially for infants who are intolerant to formula. Its nutritional benefits, hypoallergenic status and immunogenic benefits are also considered.

Data Source: Data was extracted from two computer-based sources, Medline and Immunotec.

Conclusion: If breast milk, nature’s intended nutrient for the infant, is not available, whey milk poses as the next best alternative. Unlike other infant formulas, it appears to be as immunogenic and antigenic as breast milk.
