Whey mineral complex is a concentrated source of calcium and other minerals obtained from filtering whey. Besides calcium, it includes essential minerals such as phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, sodium and iron. It can be used as an additive for various foods such as drinks for the purpose of providing nutrition. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been notified that industry considers whey mineral concentrate to be generally recognized as safe (GRAS) for its intended use and has not objected to its use for this purpose (GRN No. 52).
