Influence of Carbohydrate on Amino Acid Absorption From Dietary Protein (ICADP)

2017-10-15 17:29:13 | BioPortfolio


10 young males will be recruited to participate in a randomized double blinded crossover study to investigate the influence of concomitant intake of two different types of carbohydrate with protein hydrolysate on the absorption kinetics of protein-derived amino acids and the impact on myofibrillar protein synthesis. During the trial days the subjects will perform a bout of whole body resistance exercise and ingest a supplement of meat hydrolysate labeled with D5-phenylalanine together with randomized and double blinded type of carbohydrate consisting of either glucose or cluster dextrin.

The primary outcome is the time to obtain peak concentration of D5-phenylalanine after intake of meat hydrolysate with either glucose or cluster dextrin.


I) The cluster dextrin will increase the absorption of the amino acids from the meat hydrolysate, and thereby result in a faster rise and a higher peak in plasma amino acid concentration in the postprandial period.

II) The meat hydrolysate will increase the protein synthesis rate to a higher extent when combined with cluster dextrin than with glucose.

The Effect of a Protein Hydrolysate on Muscle Strength Recovery

Overtraining is a real problem for (semi-)professional athletes. Overtraining is often caused by the bodies' lack of ability to recover between training. In addition, during high intensity...

Effect of Whey Protein Hydrolysate on Human Muscle Protein Synthesis

Muscle protein synthesis can be stimulated by ingestion of protein sources, such as whey, casein or soy. Protein supplementation can be useful to restore protein turnover after exercise bu...

Effect of Nutrition on Muscle Protein Synthesis

The present proposal is designed to examine the effect of carbohydrate and protein co-ingestion on muscle protein synthesis during endurance type exercise activities. We hypothesize that m...

The purpose of the project is to provide evidence for the use of hydrolysed meat protein (HMP) as a protein supplement for elderly who has difficulty meeting the recommended daily protein ...

Skeletal Muscle Protein Synthesis: Traditional and Cluster Sets

Traditionally, when performing resistance exercise, repetitions are performed in a continuous manner resulting in a decrease in velocity, and thus power output. "Cluster" set is an alterna...
