Calcium-Fortified Whey Drink Lowers Bad Cholesterol

December 25, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Lithuanian researchers tested two versions of a functional whey-based beverage they developed that contained vitamin D and prebiotic fiber. One of the versions contained calcium phosphate, the other calcium lactate. The drink containing calcium phosphate was eventually discarded because it just didn’t taste well. Participants in the study drank the calcium lactate whey beverage for 21 days, after which it was found that their blood showed a significant drop in LDL (“bad”) cholesterol (P < 0.01) and triglyceride (P < 0.01) (fat) concentrations, “changes which would be likely to have a beneficial impact on their lives,” the researchers concluded.
