The benefits of whey was the focus of the world's top dairy researchers and processors as they came together with the country's leading nutrition professionals, whey and whey product users, food and beverage marketers, manufacturers and suppliers to attend the 6th International Whey Conference, Sept. 18-21 in Chicago.

More than 425 attendees from 25 countries attended the event, which provided unparalleled opportunities to learn about the power of whey, one of nature's most valuable biological resources for human nutrition and perhaps the most multi-functional protein available.

Internationally renowned experts ranging from top dairy researchers and processors to leading health and nutritional specialists presented cutting-edge nutritional and functional benefits of whey proteins.
For the first time, Demonstration Stations allowed end users and other IWC attendees to experience "The Power of Whey" through live demonstrations of the applications and functional properties of whey, whey components and whey by-products. These stations took participants "whey" beyond the basic research and PowerPoint slides and featured live interactive demonstrations that allowed "up close and personal" examples of what whey and whey products can actually do.

IWC 2011 was co-hosted by the American Dairy Products Institute (ADPI), Elmhurst, Ill., and the European Whey Products Association (EWPA) in partnership with gold sponsor support from Davisco Foods International, Inc., Glanbia Nutritionals and the U.S. Dairy Export Council.
