Hi.
Is there any difference between curd and whey? are they synonymous?
They are used one after each other in the little Miss Muffet song.
I have a impression that whey is the powder and curd is the watery one.
Thank you

Whey is a watery milky liquid; curd is semi-solid. Both are present when milk curdles.

They aren't synonymous. Adding to what Alphecca said, whey is the watery part that remains after the formation of curds.

Google says that they make whey as a protein-rich powder and sell it commercially.

Thank you very much for your great explanation.
Whey-The thin, watery part of milk, that separates from the thicker part (curds) after coagulation, as in cheese making
