Abstract

The effects of protein ingestion on postprandial lipaemia and intravenous fat tolerance were examined in 15 normolipidaemic young men and women. Mean postprandial lipaemia was similar after meals containing 100 ml dairy cream (containing 40 g fat) and after meals containing 100 ml dairy cream and 23 g protein (in the form of casein). The rate of disappearance of an intravenous bolus of Intralipid was similar before and after the ingestion of 23 g casein. These findings indicate that dietary protein does not significantly affect postprandial lipaemia or chylomicron-triglyceride clearance.
