Whey, the serum or liquid part of milk remaining after separation of the curd, results from the coagulation of milk by acid or proteolytic enzymes. Whey proteins have a relevant nutritional value, and several commercial uses have been developed by the dairy industry.Whey is a satietogenic food. Yes as other proteins but is whey a better satietogenic food than muscle protein either from animals or seafood?
It is not clear (

different effects on plasma amino acid profiles, gastrointestinal hormone
secretion and appetite. Br J Nutr 2003;89(2):239–48).
So whey should be a major component of weight loss program.
interestingly a peptide from casein collected in the whey fraction during cheese making by acidification of milk is a potent factor of satiety.
