what is whey and are there any vegans that eat products containg whey? I've heard that some vegans don't worry about whey since it's a by-product of the dairy industry. ??

It's a by-product of cheese making, and definately not vegan! The dairy industry still profits from it. Perhaps some try not to worry about it because it's in almost everything... but that's still a pretty lame excuse not to avoid it.

If you have ever let a glass of milk sit out for a long time, it is the liquid that under the thick old nasty stuff. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/spew.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":spew:"><br><br><br><br>
No it's not vegan. One's opinion on whether or not it is worth avoiding in <i>every</i> situation is a choice I do not feel is an end all be all. Such as promising to make a cake for your kid and the only stores open don't sell any margarine without a tiny bit of whey. "Whey" the pros and cons I guess. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
That said, I generally keep an eye on which things have it, which don't.
