The effects of alpha-lactabumin and whey protein concentrate on dry matter recovery, TCA soluble protein levels, and peptide distribution in the rat gastrointestinal tract.

The effects of alpha-lactabumin and whey protein concentrate on dry matter recovery, TCA soluble... The effects of two dietary proteins on dry matter recovery, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) soluble protein concentration, and peptide distribution in gastrointestinal contents were investigated in rats trained to consume, in a single 2-hour daily meal, diets containing alpha-lactalbumin (alpha-LA) or whey protein concentrate (WPC) for two weeks. Compared with the WPC diet, the alpha-LA diet emptied faster from the stomach. Dry matter recovery was higher in the stomach contents of rats fed the WPC diet than in those given the alpha-LA diet, but dry matter content in the small intestine was comparable. TCA soluble protein levels in the stomach and the small intestinal contents were also significantly (P < 0.001) higher in rats fed the WPC diet. The concentration of peptides having molecular weights (MW) ranging from 12,500-30,000 daltons (Da) was higher in the stomach contents of rats fed the WPC diet. Conversely, the level of peptides ranging from 5000-12,500 Da was higher in the stomach contents of rats fed the alpha-LA diet. For both diets, the small intestinal contents were characterized by high levels of amino acids and small peptides. These results suggest that the hydrolysis and absorption of alpha-LA is faster than that of WPC. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Canadian journal of physiology and pharmacology Pubmed

Compared with the WPC diet, the alpha-LA diet emptied faster from the stomach. Dry matter recovery was higher in the stomach contents of rats fed the WPC diet than in those given the alpha-LA diet, but dry matter content in the small intestine was comparable. TCA soluble protein levels in the stomach and the small intestinal contents were also significantly (P < 0.001) higher in rats fed the WPC diet. The concentration of peptides having molecular weights (MW) ranging from 12,500-30,000 daltons (Da) was higher in the stomach contents of rats fed the WPC diet. Conversely, the level of peptides ranging from 5000-12,500 Da was higher in the stomach contents of rats fed the alpha-LA diet. For both diets, the small intestinal contents were characterized by high levels of amino acids and small peptides. These results suggest that the hydrolysis and absorption of alpha-LA is faster than that of WPC.

Abstract

The effects of two dietary proteins on dry matter recovery, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) soluble protein concentration, and peptide distribution in gastrointestinal contents were investigated in rats trained to consume, in a single 2-hour daily meal, diets containing alpha-lactalbumin (alpha-LA) or whey protein concentrate (WPC) for two weeks. Compared with the WPC diet, the alpha-LA diet emptied faster from the stomach. Dry matter recovery was higher in the stomach contents of rats fed the WPC diet than in those given the alpha-LA diet, but dry matter content in the small intestine was comparable. TCA soluble protein levels in the stomach and the small intestinal contents were also significantly (P < 0.001) higher in rats fed the WPC diet. The concentration of peptides having molecular weights (MW) ranging from 12,500-30,000 daltons (Da) was higher in the stomach contents of rats fed the WPC diet. Conversely, the level of peptides ranging from 5000-12,500 Da was higher in the stomach contents of rats fed the alpha-LA diet.
