A single site, double-blind, randomized clinical trial designed to compare the effects of pea protein or whey protein or maltodextrin supplementation on muscle mass and functionality in males and females with obesity undertaking a weight loss regimen. Eligible participants will be randomized to one of the three groups (pea protein, whey protein, maltodextrin) and will be asked to attend 3 in-person clinic visits (0, 6, and 12 weeks) for blood and urine collection and assessments of muscle mass and muscle function. A separate visit for screening and for a fasting blood sample, as well as a Pre-Study visit and a meeting with a registered dietitian, will be required.

This research study is looking at the effects of a whey protein nutritional supplement on changes in muscle mass, strength and physical function in response to a 6 month program of strengt...
In a constant effort to find ways to make a quicker recovery between demanding workouts and football matches, this study is the first to investigate the benefits of protein supplementation...
Using stable isotope methodology, investigators will determine the postabsorptive and postprandial muscle protein synthetic response in 60 female adults (Age 50-64, BMI:
Sarcopenia, a progressive loss of muscle mass, strength and function, is an inevitable natural process of aging. While it may be impossible to completely reverse the progress of sarcopenia...
The aim of this study is to investigate potential protein synthesis effects of whey protein high in leucine compared to whey protein with normal leucin content in fragile elderly patients ...
Muscle protein synthesis (MPS) can be stimulated by ingestion of protein sources, such as whey, casein, or soy. Protein supplementation can enhance muscle protein synthesis after exercise and may pres...
Cancer remains a public health challenge in the identification and development of ideal pharmacological therapies and dietary strategies. The use of whey protein as a dietary strategy is widespread in...
In this study, a microbial electrochemical system (MES) was employed to investigate the effect of isoelectric point (IEP) on cheese whey wastewater treatment. The experiments were carried out in a bio...
The process of manufacturing infant milk formulas (IMFs) involves heat treatments that can lead to whey protein denaturation. The objective of the study was to determine how protein composition affect...
Acid whey resulting from the production of soft cheeses is a disposal problem for the dairy industry. Few uses have been found for acid whey because of its high ash content, low pH, and high organic a...
The protein components of milk obtained from the whey.
A major protein fraction of milk obtained from the WHEY.
A mitochondrial uncoupling protein that is expressed in heart and skeletal muscle tissues. It functions to regulate tissue respiration, energy balance, and THERMOGENESIS. Mutations in the UCP3 gene are associated with OBESITY.
A secreted protein of approximately 131 amino acids that is related to AGOUTI SIGNALING PROTEIN and is also an antagonist of MELANOCORTIN RECEPTOR activity. It is expressed primarily in the HYPOTHALAMUS and the ADRENAL GLAND. As a paracrine signaling molecule, AGRP is known to regulate food intake and body weight. Elevated AGRP has been associated with OBESITY.
A secreted protein of approximately 131 amino acids (depending on species) that regulates the synthesis of eumelanin (brown/black) pigments in MELANOCYTES. Agouti protein antagonizes the signaling of MELANOCORTIN RECEPTORS and has wide distribution including ADIPOSE TISSUE; GONADS; and HEART. Its overexpression in agouti mice results in uniform yellow coat color, OBESITY, and metabolic defects similar to type II diabetes in humans.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
