Vegetarians encounter a lot of problems while searching for products with the necessary quantity of fibers and nutrition. Wheyste wants to solve this. With the creation of WheyMore Wheyste offers a sustainable product that can be used as a spread, sauce or dip. We created two basic recipes by using whey. Whey is a product declared as waste by the cheese making industry although it contains a lot of proteins. It comes from the rennet from thistles. Together with whey our two basic recipes are made with seasonal ingredients and therefore each one is only available during a certain time of year. Besides the two basic recipes we created a third one, greenverse, using whey and ingredients from our own waste streams. Most spreads contain may while WheyMore does not. This increases our nutrious and healthy character. Creating these vegetarian products led to a sustainable product where people, planet and profit are balanced. All thanks to using locally grown ingredients, wastestreams and recycled products. Wheyste hopes that their processes and ways of working can also convince non vegetarians to choose their sustainable option.
