Samenvatting

To preserve muscle mass in older adults high quality proteins are required. To create a plant based alternative that mirrors the anabolic potential of animal proteins in older adults, processing, blending and fortification seems to be required. In this proposal we assess post-prandial muscle protein synthesis rates in aged individuals in response to feeding a blend of plant protein fortified with free amino acids compared to gold standard whey protein and the plant protein blend.
