There is growing interest in defining the dietary approaches for the
management of lipid disorders. This review focuses on dietary proteins.
According to the study by the University of Toronto, posted in PubMed, soy
protein was investigated the most, and many studies show that its
consumption reduces blood cholesterol. The role of other constituents
including isoflavones is debated.
Short-term studies are consistent in showing lipid-lowering properties
of whey proteins, attributed to their relative high content in branched
chain amino acids. A limited number of studies, the majority being on
animals, have shown hypocholesterolemic activities of fish proteins. The
benefits of dietary proteins remain to be confirmed in individuals with
lipid abnormalities, for formulation of optimal dietary alternatives
for the management of lipid disturbances.
