Episode 174: Researcher from Maastrict University, Jorn Trommelen is on the show to discuss his research on the effect of glucose/fructose on carbohydrate oxidation during exercise and the effect of pre-sleep protein on muscle protein balance.
Jorn earned his MSc in Nutrition and Health with top honors at Wageningen University & Research Centre. He is now pursuing a PhD in Muscle Metabolism at Maastricht University, at one of the leading laboratories in that field.
His research focusses on protein ingestion to optimize post-exercise muscle protein synthesis. In addition, he investigates carbohydrate metabolism during and after exercise.
Jorn won several awards for his research including:
- A Young Investigator Award at the European College of Sport Science Congress in 2015
- The GSSI Sport Nutrition Award at the American College of Sports Medicine in 2016
- The Gail E. Butterfield Nutrition Travel Award at the American College of Sports Medicine in 2016
- A GSSI Nutrition Award at the European College of Sport Science Congress in 2016
In This Episode We Discuss:
- Jorn’s study: ‘Fructose and Sucrose Intake Increase Exogenous Carbohydrate Oxidation during Exercise’
- Exogenous carbohydrate oxidation: why is it important for this to be as high as possible?
- Distinguishing between the amount of exogenous carbohydrates oxidized versus simply the total carbohydrate oxidized in the lab
- Does pre-sleep protein ingestion impart a benefit?
- Resistance training performed in the evening could augment the overnight muscle protein synthetic response to pre-sleep protein ingestion
