Quote from quincy:

Whey is the liquid (opaque) that's left after milk has been coagulated (curds,curdled)....you know when they make cheese or junket? Little Miss Muffet was eating her curds and whey (junket) when the spider came down beside her.
It's milk protein.

Are you drinking a specific brand? What other ingredients are in that mixture? Do you react to any other brands?
Would you list the ingredients here?

I know what you mean by the sore throat (sometimes accompanied by pain lower down) ....I've just begun eating raw pecans with almonds for the past 2 nights. I have a bit of a sore throat from them. Interesting I was testing that out again tonight and saw this posting.

I sometimes react to certain oils, exactly what I don't know....pecan now seems to be one culprit.

Peanuts are beans, a different kind of protein.

I hope you get it figured out. I know protein drinks can be expensive....if you do an ingredients comparison, it may not even be the whey.

Keep us posted,

Hi Quincy. I am drinking GNC 100% Whey Protein. Here are the ingredients:

Proprietary protein blend (whey protein concentrate, ion-exchange whey protein isolate, hydrolyzed whey peptides) cocoa, artificial flavor, lecithin, salt, acesulfame potassium, cellulose gum, xanthan gum.

I am not allergic to milk. I can eat peanuts. I eat cashews all the time, and I can eat snickers or candy w/ nuts in them, but i never eat nuts plain. All I get is a sore throat, tonsil problems. I am still nto sure if its the protein or not. It has gone away, and colds are going around campus here. I just wish I knew, because this stuff works and it was expensive.
