Revisiting the role of protein-induced satiation and satiety

Revisiting the role of protein-induced satiation and satiety

‘Satiation’ and ‘satiety’ are key terms that have come to be widely used to help understand processes involved in appetite control. Mechanisms explaining protein-induced satiety are primarily nutrient-specific, but they are of course not mathematically related to satiety. Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) release evoked by a high protein meal is stimulated by the carbohydrate content. Sensory, cognitive, post-ingestive and post-absorptive signals will determine jointly the feeling of satiation and satiety. In the present review, the authors want to obtain an overview of the satiating ability of dietary protein and its role in satiation and satiety.
