Bottom Line: Studies on the postprandial effects of enzymatic crosslinking of milk proteins are sparse.Appetite ratings or subsequent energy intake did not differ among the protein beverages.Our results indicate that the metabolic responses of enzymatically crosslinked and native sodium caseinate in a liquid matrix are comparable, suggesting similar digestion and absorption rates and first pass metabolism despite the structural modification of Cas-TG.

ABSTRACT

Background: Postprandial metabolic and appetitive responses of proteins are dependent on protein source and processing technique prior to ingestion. Studies on the postprandial effects of enzymatic crosslinking of milk proteins are sparse. Our aim was to study the effect of transglutaminase (TG)-induced crosslinking of sodium caseinate on postprandial metabolic and appetite responses. Whey protein was included as reference protein.

Methods: Thirteen healthy individuals (23.3 ± 1.1 y, BMI 21.7 ± 0.4 kg/m2) participated in a single-blind crossover design experiment in which the subjects consumed three different isovolumic (500 g) pourable beverages containing either sodium caseinate (Cas, 29 g), TG-treated sodium caseinate (Cas-TG, 29 g) or whey protein (Wh, 30 g) in a randomized order. Blood samples were collected at baseline and for 4 h postprandially for the determination of plasma glucose, insulin and amino acid (AA) concentrations. Gastric emptying (GE) was measured using the 13 C-breath test method. Appetite was assessed using visual analogue scales.

Results: All examined postprandial responses were comparable with Cas and Cas-TG. The protein type used in the beverages was reflected as differences in plasma AA concentrations between Wh and Cas, but there were no differences in plasma glucose or insulin responses. A tendency for faster GE rate after Wh was detected. Appetite ratings or subsequent energy intake did not differ among the protein beverages.

Conclusions: Our results indicate that the metabolic responses of enzymatically crosslinked and native sodium caseinate in a liquid matrix are comparable, suggesting similar digestion and absorption rates and first pass metabolism despite the structural modification of Cas-TG.

Changes in the concentration of plasma glucose (A) and plasma insulin (B) during the 240 min postprandial period in young individuals consuming beverages composed of caseinate (−−○−−), transglutaminase-treated caseinate (−●–) or whey protein (··▽··). Values are means ± SEM, n = 13.

Figure 2: Changes in the concentration of plasma glucose (A) and plasma insulin (B) during the 240 min postprandial period in young individuals consuming beverages composed of caseinate (−−○−−), transglutaminase-treated caseinate (−●–) or whey protein (··▽··). Values are means ± SEM, n = 13.

Mentions: After all test beverages plasma glucose responses increased initially from baseline up to 15 min, declined thereafter towards the nadir at 90 min and returned close to the baseline at 240 min (Figure 2A). Postmeal insulin responses increased similarly after all test beverages and peaked at 30 min after which the concentrations returned towards the baseline (Figure 2B). No significant differences were detected in postmeal glucose and insulin responses between Cas and Cas-TG or between Cas/Cas-TG and Wh beverages (P > 0.05).
