Metabolism of aspartame and its L-phenylalanine methyl ester decomposition product by the porcine gut.

Abstract

The intestinal metabolism of aspartame (N-L-alpha-aspartyl-L-phenylalanine methyl ester; APM) and its L-phenylalanine methyl ester (PME) decomposition product was evaluated in six young pigs. Equimolar doses (2.5 mmol/kg body weight) of APM, PME, and L-phenylalanine (PHE) administered to the proximal jejunum produced similar increases in portal blood PHE… (More)
