I am fully aware of how much whey protein is being pushed (hyped). I spent considerable time a few years ago corresponding by snail mail with the HIV and AIDS organizations in New York City when they asked me about it. I told them the little that I know and that is that through the years, the protein in whey has always been considered to be an inferior protein for human consumption. Years ago, we knew it contained the more antigenic proteins in the milk and we also knew that Depts of Agriculture were promoting that whey (a waste product from cheese manufacture) be turned into a moneymaking commodity.

More recently, whey protein hypers claim that whey protein contains a factor that has to do with insulin but I have forgotten the details except to read in literature that these very factors being hyped are, in fact, having a negative effect on sick people.
So my answer to you is that I do not like it.

The book should be required reading for anyone with Crohn's disease and we wish gastroenterologists would read it as well. The diet is a real alternative to the drug based therapy from the medical community.
