Which whey is it?
Like many people, I make homemade greek yogurt. Mine is made from two ingredients.
- Two quarts 2% milk
- About 1.5 ounces of greek yogurt from my previous batch.
This yields approximately one-quart greek yogurt and one-quart whey.
I log yogurt into the diary as Greek Yogurt, Plain, Lowfat Food #458233, Data Source: NCCDB.
I log the whey as Whey, sweet, fluid Food #986, Data Source: USDAsr28:01114, but that is just a guess. Is there a better, more accurate database item I should use instead?
It seems like there should be someplace to look an item up to find out what the heck it is in addition to its nutritional data.
How can I find out what the USDA means by "Whey, sweet, fluid"?
