SWEET WHEY POWDER: 

       Western Europe whey prices weakened, continuing a trend over the 
last several reporting periods. Supplies of whey are higher than some 
manufacturers prefer. This gives buyers greater bargaining leverage, 
which is a big factor in weaker prices. It is expected this situation 
will continue into coming weeks.
       The Dairy Market News international monthly average price in 
dollars /metric ton for Western Europe whey powder prices in 
September, 2017, $979, compares with $935 one year earlier.                                               
                                                                 
NONHYGROSCOPIC:                            750 - 975
