Hi SravanthiR1088,

Whey protein is the protein contained in whey, the watery portion of milk that separates from the curds when making cheese. It is a source of protein that might improve the nutrient content of the diet. and might also have effects on the immune system.

Whey protein is used for improving athletic performance, as a food supplement, as an alternative to milk for people with lactose intolerance, for replacing or supplementing milk-based infant formulas, and for reversing weight loss and increasing glutathione (GSH) in people with HIV disease.

Whey protein is also used for protein allergy, asthma, high cholesterol, obesity and weight loss, preventing allergies in infants, late-stage cancer, and colon cancer.

Whether it is good or bad depends on who is using it. Any one with concerns should talk with his or her primary care physician before using a whey protein product.
