  • Whey Protein Research Points to Satiety Links

    February 1, 2015 by USDEC Staff

    Recently published nutrition study shows the impact of whey protein compared to carbohydrate on the satiety regulating hormone response and changes in plasma amino acids in normal-weight adult women.This research is a follow-up to previously published data by the same authors(same subjects/data set:Chungchunlam SMS et al. (2012). Appetite; 52:281-288) where the whey protein preload significantly reduced food intake at the test meal compared to the carbohydrate preload. It provides possible mechanistic support (favorable changes in various satiety regulating hormones)for the differences in energy intake reported previously. It adds to the growing body of evidence of how whey proteins may influence satiety responses and subsequent energy intake. The research from the Riddet Institute, Massey University by SMS Chungchunlam is titled "Dietary whey protein influences plasma satiety-related hormones and plasma amino acids in normal-weight adult women." It was published online January 7, 2015 and can be found in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition (2015) 69, 179-186.
