BACKGROUND & AIMS Irreversible amino acid losses at the human ileum are not taken into account when tracer-derived amino acid requirements are calculated because the data available are scarce. We have investigated amino acid losses at the ileal level in humans after ingestion of a protein meal. METHODS Thirteen volunteers ingested a single meal of 15N milk or soy proteins. The appearance of 15N and 15N amino acids in the ileal effluents collected using an ileal tube was monitored for 8 hours… CONTINUE READING
