Project title: Milk Proteins and Risk of Type 2 Diabetes
Department/School: Food and Nutritional Sciences
Supervisors: Professor Julie Lovegrove, Dr Les Crompton, Dr Kim Jackson and Professor Ian Givens
Project Overview: Evidence from long-term prospective studies indicates that high consumption of some dairy products, a rich source of branched chain amino acids (BCAA) is associated with a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes. Despite this, higher circulating BCAA concentrations have been associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. This project aims to rationalise this apparent conflict of evidence using human randomised controlled trials and associated biochemistry.
