Casein glycomacropeptide - Medical Nutrition

Product description

Casein glycomacropeptide for medical nutritionLacprodan® CGMP-20 is a highly purified casein glycomacropeptide product with a very low level of the amino acid phenylalanine. Lacprodan® CGMP-20 furthermore contains a very high level of large neutral amino acids, such as threonine and isoleucine, which compete for uptake into the brain with phenylalanine. Lacprodan® CGMP-20 is therefore an outstanding protein source for people with phenylketonuria (PKU) since these patients are not able to metabolize phenylalanine efficiently. CGMP for PKU nutritionThe current PKU diet consists of a low protein diet and free amino acids supplements to limit the patient’s intake of phenylalanine. Partial substitution of free amino acids with Lacprodan® CGMP-20 provides additional benefits, such as: - Improved compliance due to better palatability - Improved satiety - Potentially improved bone health - Potentially improved gut health Due to its low content of aromatic amino acids, casein glycomacropeptide is also a suitable dietary supplement for patients with hepatic diseases and tyrosinemia. Highly concentrated dairy source of threonine Lacprodan® CGMP-10 contains about 18% threonine – three times more than a standard whey protein concentrate. This makes it a highly concentrated dairy source of threonine. Threonine constitutes about 22% of the peptide core. This indicates a potential beneficial effect on gut health, by ensuring enough threonine is available for mucin synthesis. Lacprodan® may reduce bowel disease symptoms Results from a human pilot study of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) patients suffering active distal ulcerative colitis indicate that nutritional supplementation with Lacprodan® CGMP is safe, well tolerated and may help reduce disease activity. This is also supported by animal studies.
