About Us

The WPRC has been dedicated to discovering and sharing whey’s health benefits through scientific evidence since 2003. Through the support of our partners, the WPRC uniquely serves the dairy industry by expanding global usage of whey protein through the research and amplification of its health benefits.

Leveraging health benefits to grow the market

The goal of WPRC's integrated research efforts is to develop a body of knowledge that establishes measurable whey protein health and wellness benefits.
