Session Number and Title: 020.Rethinking protein requirements and recommendations: Beyond muscle.
Session Type: SYMPOSIUM

Primary Track: Food, Health & Nutrition
Secondary Track: Product Development & Ingredient Innovations
Session Room: Room 287
Session Description: Protein has been considered a muscle-building macronutrient—particularly important for strength-building and endurance athletes. New research differentiates types of protein and identifies benefits beyond its effect on muscle (e.g., bone health, weight management, blood glucose control, heart health, facilitating the aging process, and post-exercise rehydration and recovery beverages); thus, it is time to reconsider optimal protein intakes. The distribution of protein ingestion throughout the day and the appropriate ratio of amino acids are needed to optimize protein’s physiological effect. This session summarizes recent research on benefits of protein and provides guidance on possible future recommendations. In addition, the session provides a perspective of consumer knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs, which will allow food professionals to gauge demand for amounts and types of protein in products and plan strategic marketing and promotional efforts for their products.
