    Hi Everyone!

    Can anybody tell me what is the difference between "Whey" and "Buttermilk"
    I have a list of Ingredients where both words are listed and according to WordReference the translation in Spanish is Suero de Leche for both terms.
    Thank you all in advance! :)

    I'd use 'suero de leche' for whey, the liquid poured away from curdled milk in cheesemaking.
    And 'suero de mantequilla' for buttermilk, the liquid that is poured off in buttermaking.

    It makes perfect sense to me...

    Thank you so, so much!

    Buttermilk, es el que se usa en la cocina y que sería el suero obtenido en la fabricación de la mantequilla
    Whey es el suero obtenido en la fabricación del queso, que es el suero que se suele tomar en las dietas o como bebida, incluso se vende en el super mezclado con zumos.
