The protein committee looks to further the scientific understanding of the optimal distribution of protein intake in dietary patterns for different population subgroups, including examination of the health benefits and risks associated with various protein intakes and the timing of their intake to achieve desired health effects.

 

Why is this research valuable?

The committee is currently sponsoring research on long-term effects of protein at levels above DRIs in a long-term cohort on cardiometabolic health, inflammation, and performance/disability
