Why do we dislike Whey?

Chemicalkinetics | | Feb 11, 2013 10:32 AM

Hi all,

I have read many negative statements about using whey as an ingredient for foods (like ice cream or fruit drinks...etc). See the first ingredient:

or the fifth ingredient from this:

So why do we dislike whey? Is it because
a) whey tastes bad.
b) whey is unhealthy (or less healthy).
c) whey is just "cheap" or "uncivilized".
d) whatever your reason may be.
I am not expert in whey, so I don't understand the negative attitude toward whey. Please share your feeling on whey. Thanks.
