Also know, is Greek yogurt a whey protein?
The protein in Greek yogurt isalmostentirely casein, which is slow to digest. But mix yourfavoriteflavor of whey protein powder into youryogurt, andsuddenly you've got a perfect blend of fast- andslow-digestingproteins. Mix one scoop of your favoritewhey proteinpowder into 1 cup reduced-fat Greekyogurt.
Subsequently, question is, how long is whey good for after making yogurt? After ~4 hours or whenever youryogurtstops dripping, that's it! You have about 3 cups ofwhey inthe bowl and 1 cup of yogurt cheese in thetowel.Yogurt cheese lasts 1-4 weeks (you'll know whenitgoes bad) and the whey lasts up to 6 months.
Also asked, how do you get whey out of yogurt?
To obtain whey, you can strainyogurt,kefir, cultured buttermilk, clabbered milk, and somecheeses.Whey is full of the beneficial bacteria and enzymesfound inthese cultured dairy products.

When the liquid whey is strained out ofregularyogurt, the consistency of the yogurt becomesthickerand creamier. Also, the flavor changes because thewheycontains sodium and sugar (from lactose). So, regularyogurtis saltier and sweeter than strained(Greek)yogurt.
