Soy, Quinoa, and Pumpkin seeds. Why do you need these complete protein foods? What protein combos don’t work?

It’s important to eat enough protein throughout the day as part of a well-balanced lifestyle. But how much protein you need, and the best times to eat it, definitely vary from person to person. Factors that influence how much you might need include how often you exercise, whether or not you have certain health conditions, … Read more

Enjoy holiday treats with moderation in mind

I had the opportunity to take part in a holiday tradition in another state. All the downtown stores with many locally made products stayed open late. They had special sales to launch the holiday season. I was looking forward to the evening. The stores offered treats including cookies, candy, cocoa and apple cider. As fate … Read more

Meiji’s subsidiary develops algorithm for personalized protein intake

In the lead-up to the creation of the algorithm, the firm had referenced data, including body weight, purpose of protein intake, and amount of exercise from research papers. It also conducted a survey among 869 consumers mostly between 20s and 70s to find out their demand for protein products to develop the algorithm. The effect … Read more

Personalized protein requirements for an aging population

Protein intake requirements increase with age (1.0–1.2 g/kg/day) due to anabolic resistance (blunted muscle protein synthesis response) and increased metabolism resulting from inflammatory conditions. However, older adults can often struggle to consume adequate quantities of protein and this prevalence is relatively widespread given that 65–67% of community based older adults are below the suggested 1.2 … Read more

Novel prefusion S antigen designed by the mutation of the SARS-CoV-2 Spike protein’s trimeric structure

In a recent study posted to the bioRxiv* server, researchers mutated the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) spike (S) protein’s trimeric structure to design a novel prefusion S antigen, S2D14. Study: Structural and Computational Design of a SARS-2 Spike Antigen with Increased Receptor Binding Domain Exposure and Improved Immunogenicity.
