    cooking and cheese (whey): lower protein content?

    i've heard a few times, and again today, that applying heat to whey will cancel out it's protein content. unfortunately i have never been able to uncover any studies.

    to vary up my diet, i eat protein pancakes regularly - these are made from primarily from cottage cheese. i suppose if the above statement is true, then some protein content of regular cheese (mont jack, etc) is affected as well.

    if protein is lost, what % of it is lost?

    i do believe heating whey will damage it. but i think you would have to heat it a lot more then it gets heated by making the pancakes.

    The protein will be denatured by the body anyway, so I would not worry about it unless you burn it
