Fresh whey is naturally packed with full-spectrum electrolytes (sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and zinc), is a great source of B-vitamins, and has gut-beneficial acids. All these things work together to keep you healthy and happy.
Fresh whey is beloved as a drink in many countries. But in the US, we throw it out or feed it to livestock.
Superfrau rescues surplus whey at the source, infuses it with unique flavors, and upcycles it into nourishing and refreshing drinks.
Good for the planet and good for you.
Pronounced: “supa-frow”. Superfrau means Superwoman in German. It's a tribute to our Alpine roots and all of the super benefits derived from the milk of a female cow. We think drinking fresh whey is super and makes you feel super too!
Drinking + Tasting
When you first open the can, you may get a hint of yogurt fragrance. This is totally normal. We start with the surplus liquid from yogurt straining. But it’s not yogurt. And it’s not creamy. It’s fizzy and lightly colored. All natural.
And the taste is super delicious.
Try it! If you don't like it, let us know.
I wanna try it!
Nope. But, it tastes whey better cold. It doesn't need to be refrigerated until after it’s opened. And once opened, best to drink within 3 days.
Fresh whey is the liquid that’s strained during the process of yogurt and cheese fermentation. This liquid whey is often discarded or fed to livestock, but Superfrau recognizes how nourishing and delicious it is, so we rescue and upcycle it. Good for the planet. Good for your body and mind. And tastes super!
Natural flavors come from plant or animal sources like a fruit, vegetable, meat, fish, dairy product, herb, spice, leaf, root, bark or bud. Then fermented or distilled to create specific flavors. We source high quality natural flavors from reputable manufacturers with transparent supply chains and verifiable health and safety certifications.

Electrolytes are minerals that carry an electric charge when they are dissolved in a liquid such as blood. These electric charges help our muscles contract, regulate our pH levels, and keep us hydrated, among many other things for maintaining a healthy nervous system.
Fresh whey naturally contains the full spectrum of electrolytes (sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium and zinc (see our Nutrition Facts Panel for the exact values per 12oz can of Superfrau)) needed to replenish our body’s naturally occurring electrolytes
Both fresh whey and whey protein powder are derived from the fermentation of milk during cheese and yogurt production. During production of cheese and yogurt, the milk is heated, a culture is added, and the milk then separates into curds and liquid whey during fermentation. The difference between fresh whey and whey protein powder is that whey protein powder is further processed. It is dried and concentrated to maximize the protein content. Superfrau recognizes the benefits of whey beyond protein. We do not dry and concentrate the whey. We rescue the liquid from the supply chain, where it may otherwise be wasted, and we upcycle it by infusing the liquid with unique flavors. Fresh, liquid whey contains a small amount of protein. The main benefits include: full spectrum electrolytes, B vitamins, and lactic acid (which is known to support your gut!).
Superfrau is pasteurized so it is safe to consume while pregnant. Any further questions should be directed to your primary care physician.
Yep! Superfrau uses a lactase enzyme to break up the lactose, thus making the whey virtually lactose-free. If you have a lactose intolerance, best to consult your physician before drinking Superfrau.
Yep, it's pasteurized.
