The aim of the present study was to evaluate postprandial absorption of pea protein as well as exogenous nitrogen retention in humans. For this purpose, after fasting overnight, seven healthy adults (4 males and 3 females) ingested [15N]-labeled pea protein (195 mmol N). Ileal effluents were collected for 8 h at 30-min intervals using a nasointestinal intubation technique. Urine and plasma samples were collected for 24 h. The [15N]-enrichment was determined in the intestinal samples, in the… CONTINUE READING
