Dried skim or whole milk was used for manufacture of Domiati cheese, the popular soft white cheese in Egypt. Salted whey instead of water was used for reconstitution of non-fat dry milk and/or dried whole milk. Use of whey caused a decrease in curd firmness.

Salted whey gave the cheese a flavor of pickled cheese of 45 days of age.
