Proteins: an Excellent Appetite Suppressor
Proteins are your body’s building blocks – they are essential for life. Protein sources are the lowest in calories and, as opposed to sugars and lipids (fats), they never converted to fat and stored in fat cells.
Also, a dietary protein will stimulate serotonin synthesis (which acts on the sensation of satiety and reduce appetite.
In 1997, Bernard Beaufrère’s team, from the Laboratory for Human Nutrition Research of Clermont-Ferrand (France), established a distinction between “slow” proteins, acting on metabolism, and “fast” proteins.
Slow-digesting proteins, such as casein – mostly containing in Inovacure proteins – contribute to metabolic functioning, a successful protein synthesis and muscle mass protection.
Our products contain all of the required 22 amino acids and 9 essential amino acids. Inovacure mainly uses milk proteins (milk proteins contrite, milk proteins isolate, whey protein concentrate, sodium caseinate, calcium caseinate), and according to Canadian Food Inspection Agency, these are the most complete proteins.
Other animal proteins (egg whites) as well as plant-based proteins (soya protein isolate) are added to some products. Bovine proteins in the form of hydrolyzed gelatin are sometimes used to give a more pleasant texture to products.
Proteins are extracted through microfiltration.
