Greek yogurt manufacturing produces millions of pounds of toxic acid whey waste every year.
The sad part is – no one knows what they do with it! “For every three or four ounces of milk, Chobani and other companies can produce only one ounce of creamy Greek yogurt. The rest becomes acid whey. It’s a thin, runny waste product that can’t simply be dumped. Not only would that be illegal, but whey decomposition is toxic to the natural environment, robbing oxygen from streams and rivers.” via Modern Farmers.
