BackgroundBecause the source of protein may play a role in its satiating effect, we investigated the effect of different proteins on satiation and short-term satiety.

MethodsTwo randomized single-blind cross-over studies were completed. In the first study, we investigated the effect of a preload containing 20 g of casein, whey, pea protein, egg albumin or maltodextrin vs. water control on food intake 30 min later in 32 male volunteers 25 ± 4 yrs, BMI 24 ± 0.4 kg-m. Subjective appetite was assessed using visual analogue scales at 10 min intervals after the preload. Capillary blood glucose was measured every 30 min during 2 hrs before and after the ad libitum meal. In the second study, we compared the effect of 20 g of casein, pea protein or whey vs. water control on satiation in 32 male volunteers 25 ± 0.6 yrs, BMI 24 ± 0.5 kg-m. The preload was consumed as a starter during an ad libitum meal and food intake was measured. The preloads in both studies were in the form of a beverage.

ResultsIn the first study, food intake was significantly lower only after casein and pea protein compared to water control P = 0.02; 0.04 respectively. Caloric compensation was 110, 103, 62, 56 and 51% after casein, pea protein, whey, albumin and maltodextrin, respectively. Feelings of satiety were significantly higher after casein and pea protein compared to other preloads P < 0.05. Blood glucose response to the meal was significantly lower when whey protein was consumed as a preload compared to other groups P < 0.001. In the second study, results showed no difference between preloads on ad libitum intake. Total intake was significantly higher after caloric preloads compared to water control P < 0.05.

ConclusionCasein and pea protein showed a stronger effect on food intake compared to whey when consumed as a preload. However, consuming the protein preload as a starter of a meal decreased its impact on food intake as opposed to consuming it 30 min before the meal.
