Postprandial Effects of a Proprietary Milk Protein Hydrolysate Containing Bioactive Peptides in Prediabetic Subjects: A Recent Study

Milk proteins are thought to protect against type 2 diabetes (T2DM) through regulating the glycemic response, particularly in the postprandial state. The high content of whey proteins, which are usually a byproduct of cheese production, is one reason for this possibility. Milk contains two protein fractions: casein, which is slowly digesting, and whey, which is quickly digestible. However, because of its increased leucine content, native whey has gotten a lot of attention, and its postprandial glycemic effect in prediabetes has yet to be determined. In this study, prediabetics were given a randomised, cross-over trial to see how effective a milk protein hydrolysate of native whey origin with alpha-glucosidase inhibitory capabilities was. Prior to a high-carbohydrate challenge meal, subjects were given a single dosage of placebo, low-dosed milk protein hydrolysate, or high-dosed milk protein hydrolysate. Glucose and insulin concentration-time curves were examined. Low-dosed milk peptides significantly reduced incremental areas under the curve (iAUC) of glucose as the primary endpoint compared to placebo (P = 0.0472), and a slight insulinotropic effect was observed. A longer intervention period with the low-dosed product did not improve glucose response but did reduce HbA1c levels significantly (P = 0.0244). To summarise, the current milk protein hydrolysate of native whey origin has the potential to modify postprandial hyperglycemia and hence may help to reduce the risk of developing T2DM in the future.
