Treść
The ever-increasing growth in the size of the human population is causing a growing demand for animal protein. This demand has spurred an interest in cheaper, plant-derived proteins that have an equally rich protein composition as alternatives to proteins of animal origin. A long record of attempts to substitute proteins originating primarily from legumes, cereals, cassava, leaf proteins and whole plant lucerne proteins for animal proteins in the human diet exists. Lucerne Medicago (L.) is the most popular and widespread protein-yielding crop which is grown in cool-climate regions. Extracts and concentrates of lucerne contain, along with proteins, also many vitamins, nutritive substances and secondary metabolites. Due to valuable chemical constituents which show phytobiotic action on humans lucerne is used in folk medicine and phytotherapy. The health-promoting impact of a lucerne-derived protein extract in animals is well-known and well-documented. It is interesting therefore to describe the human body’s response to protein supplementation of lucerne.
