Pennings, B., Groen, B. B, van Dijk, J. W, Lange, A. D, Kiskini, A., Kuklinski, M., Senden, J. M & Van Loon, LJ. (2013). Minced beef is more rapidly digested and absorbed than beef steak, resulting in greater postprandial protein retention in older men. American Journal of Clinical Nutrition,98(1), 121-128. United States: American Society for Nutrition. Retrieved from https://doi.org/10.3945/ajcn.112.051201
Older individuals generally experience a reduced food-chewing efficiency. As a consequence, food texture may represent an important factor that modulates dietary protein digestion and absorption kinetics and the subsequent postprandial protein balance.
