The U.S. dairy community plays an essential role in ensuring a safe and consistent supply of nutritious and delicious dairy foods for people and communities across the globe.
We share a commitment – from the farm to the table – to responsibly producing the dairy foods we all enjoy and depend upon. U.S. dairy farmers are taking strong action, always innovating to produce milk and dairy products with fewer resources.

Dairy products and ingredients—such as U.S. whey and milk proteins—are a delicious way to enjoy the wonderful nutrition naturally found in cow’s milk.
While protein is naturally found in a variety of animal and plant foods, there is a wide variance in protein quality. U.S. dairy proteins stand out as a high quality, complete source of protein containing all the essential amino acids. Whey protein is also the leading source of the amino acid leucine, which is important for healthy aging by playing a central role in stimulating muscle protein synthesis.
