Egg white proteins are an alternative to whey proteins. In fact, they have biological value, protein efficiency and other very similar protein quality indexes. With regard to plant sources, they have a better amino acid profile due to the superb balance of essential amino acids. Important indexes such as the chemical score and biological value (BV) use egg as a reference protein. As a matter of fact, the whole egg is given the highest value (100). Digestion time of egg proteins is intermediate between the quicker whey protein and slower caseins, giving a good satisfying power. Egg albumins are a good solution for those who wish to increase the protein intake in their diets without introducing excessive lipids.
Oatmeal comes from the Avena sativa cereal, of the Graminaceae family, by grinding the seeds. It contains mainly starch (70%), proteins (17%), fat (7%) and fibre apart from vitamins and mineral salts. The percentage of proteins is high if we consider they are 50% more than the proteins in wheat flour and contain a good amino acid profile. They are a superb alternative, above all for their high content of the Lysine amino acid, which cereal often lacks. Moreover, oatmeal is rich in fibre that helps the bowel and digestion to function correctly. Starch is digested and absorbed slowly to the benefit of the glycaemic index that shows no peaks and it can be used by diabetics. The fibre part contains high percentages of beta-glucans, beneficial molecules for some metabolic therapies. When they deposit in the bowel, beta-glucans trap food cholesterol in a gel that cannot be absorbed and crosses the bowel taking cholesterol away. This is their cholesterol-lowering property. Finally, oats contain nitrogenous phenolic compounds, the avenanthramides, which are powerful anti-inflammatories capable of protecting from cancers and inhibiting cell proliferation.
Vitamin B1 contributes to maintain the normal energy metabolism while vitamins B2 and B6 contribute to reduce tiredness and fatigue.
