Whey At Breakfast Can Reduce Appetite At Lunch
The milk you pour over breakfast cereal contains both whey and casein proteins. A University of Guelph study published in the Journal of Dairy Science found that milk with breakfast can reduce concentrations of blood sugars after consuming the lunchtime meal.
Thirty-two subjects had milk, high-protein whey or water as part of a high-carbohydrate breakfast. All ate pizza for lunch. Milk consumption helped reduce blood sugar levels after the lunchtime pizza, and the effect was greater with whey protein at breakfast. There was also a modest decrease in pizza consumption when whey was consumed at breakfast.
