#129 - "Protein Quality and the Food Matrix" with Nick Burd PhD

Episode 129 of the Institute of Performance Nutrition's "We Do Science" podcast! In this episode, I (Laurent Bannock) discuss "Protein Quality and the Food Matrix" with Dr Nick Burd PhD (Department of Kinesiology and Community Health, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA).

Discussion Topics Include:

  • Defining protein & diet quality
  • Defining optimal vs recommended intakes for protein
  • Reductionism & protein research
  • The Food matrix: A wholistic view of protein and exercise interactions and why whole protein is more than just the sum of its parts!
  • Why a "food-first" approach to post-exercise protein intake will be beneficial for both the skeletal muscle adaptive response and diet quality for most people
