Q: Is whey gluten-free?


Yes, whey is a milk protein and is naturally gluten-free. Pure whey should be safe on the gluten-free diet. However, always read the label and confirm GF status on whey powders as other ingredients are often added.

Another thing to note is that whey is not suitable for those who have a sensitivity to dairy or a milk allergy.
