Could a Yogurt Production By-Product Pollute New York Water?

Hemera

Industry officials and agriculture experts are taking issue with recent reports concerning yogurt production, an industry that has taken off in several farming areas of New York, including Chenango County.

There had been some media reports of acidic whey’s potential to contaminate waterways.

Agriculture economics experts say the industry knows it would kill their future to dump mass amounts of the protein-high whey into the environment.

The by-product is actually used in animal feed and can be used in some food products for human consumption.

Any milk or milk product is hazardous to waterways and aquatic life, should it enter a creek, stream or river.
