Complex dietary protein improves growth through a complex mechanism of intestinal peptide absorption and protein digestion.


BACKGROUND The small intestinal epithelium has an impressive ability to adapt to changes resulting from loss of length or alteration in dietary load. We sought to determine the potential influence of dietary protein absorption on growth and development. We hypothesized that a complex protein diet would improve growth over that of an elemental diet… (More)
