Objectives A breakfast containing eggs (EB) can potentially provide a greater quantity of high quality protein. We previously reported (Study 1) that EB induces greater satiety and reduces lunch time energy intake (LTEI) compared to a breakfast without eggs (CB), but of equal energy density. However, this EB had a greater amount of protein. Hence, in Study 2 we compared EB and CB with equal energy density and protein quantity, but of differing protein quality. EB (higher protein quality… CONTINUE READING
