Salta's Salbumin

Salbumin (De Sugared Spray Dried Egg Albumen Powder)

Salbumin - Egg Albumen 100%, egg white protein is a pure ingredient. All you get are the benefits of liquid egg Albumen; a high quality protein that contains all the essential amino acids needed by the body for tissue growth and repair, while being cholesterol, lactose and fat free.Egg Albumen is nature’s best source of protein, resembles to Serum Albumen so gets easily absorbed and utilized for muscle building.Highest PER(3.9), ensures more muscle building compared to other protein sources. Provides 80% protein, one serving(about 80g) of Albumen supplies 24 grams of 100% bio available pure protein.Offers best BCAA (5022mg/100g.) profile that stimulates protein synthesis in the muscles as well as release mental fatigue during performance.Glows prolonged absorption and has the best anabolic activity throughout the day and even at night considered the good standard of protein supplements. Salbumin - is an excellent protein source for people who can’t or don’t wish to eat meat or dairy products. It can also be used to replace fresh liquid egg whites in recipes such as baked goods.

Abstract

Background/ Aim : Malnutrition is highly prevalent in patients Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis(CAPD) and is a strong predictor of increased morbidity and mortality. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of oral administration of an egg Albumen-based protein supplement on the nutritional status of CAPD patients.

Methods

In this randomized, open label, controlled clinical trial, 28 CAPD patients were allocated to a study(n=13) or a control(n=15) group. Both groups received conventional nutritional counselling; the study groups received, additionally, an oral egg Albumen-based supplements. During a 6 months follow up, all patients had monthly clinical and biochemical evaluations and quarterly assessments of adequacy of dialysis and nutrition.

Results

Serum egg Albumen levels were not different between groups; however, a significant increase(baseline vs final) was observed in the study groups(2.64+/-0.35 vs 3.05 +/-0.72 g/dL) but not in the control group(2.66+/-0.56 vs 2.80+/-0.54 mg/dL). Calorie and protein intake increased more in the study group(calories 1331+/-432 vs 1872+/-698 kcal; proteins 1.0+/-0.3 vs 1.7+/-0.7 g/kg), then in the control group (calories 1423+/- 410 vs 1567 +/- 381 kCal; protein 1.0 +/- 0.4 vs 1.0 +/- 0.3 g/Kg). Similarly, non-protein nitrogen appearance rate (nPNA) increased significantly more in the study(1.00 +/- 0.23 vs 1.18 +/- 0.35 g/Kg/day). Then in the control group (0.91 +/- 0.11 vs 0.97 +/- 0.14 g/Kg/day). Triceps Skinfold Thickness (TSF) and Midarm Muscle Area (MAMA) displayed a non significant trend to a greater increase in the study group (TSF 16.7 +/- 8.7 vs 18.3 +/- 10.7 mm; MAMA 23.8 +/- 6.2 vs 25.8 +/- 5.9 cm2) then in control (TSF 16.4 +/- 5.7 vs 16.9 +/- 7.0 mm; MAMA 28.7 +/- 7.8 vs 30.0 +/- 7.9 cm2). At the end of follow-up, the frequency of patients with moderate or severe malnutrition decreased 6% in the control group and decreased 28% in the study group. At the final evaluation, the most important predictor of serum albumen were the oral egg albumen-based supplement administration and protein intake (p < 0.05); secondary predictor(p = 0.06) were peritoneal transport rate and MAMA.

Conclusions

In the study group, oral administration of the egg Albumen-based supplement significantly improved serum Albumen, calorie and protein intake, and nPNA, and, compared to controls, this maneuver was associated with a trend to increase anphropometric parameters and improved subjective global assessments evaluation, oral administration of the Albumen supplements and protein intake were the most significant predictors of serum Albumen at the end of follow-up. This oral supplement may be a safe, effective, and cheap method to improve nutritional status in peritoneal dialysis patience.

Oral Egg-Albumen-Based Protein Supplement

Improved Nutritional Status in CAPD Patients



Randomized Open-Label Trial

The study was done as a randomized, open-label controlled trial involving 30 CAPD patients, equally divided into study and controlled groups. All patients had been on CAPD for atleast 1 month and had associated malnutrition.

Patients in the study group received the oral egg Albumen based supplement at dose of 15gm. twice a day #151, the equivalent of about six to eight egg whites. The supplement was prepared as a powder and added to milkshakes or sprinkled on meals.

Both groups received conventional nutritional counselling provided by single expert renal nutritionist, del Campo said, and the counselling included a dietary prescription of 1.3 to 1.5 grams of protein in per kg per day and 30 to 35 calories per kg per day, as is usually recommended for CAPD patients. Patients were followed for 6 months, and 90% of patients remained compliant at follow-up. At baseline, there were no differences in age, sex, cause of End-Stage Renal Disease(ESRD), or time on dialysis.

Renal function was already low at the beginning of the study and declined further by study end, but it did not differs between the two groups, del Campo noted. In contrast, serum Albumen was significantly increased over baselines in study patients, but not in controls, among whom serum Albumen remained relatively stable throughout the study. Calorie intake was also similar between groups at baseline at approximately 1400-1500 calories a day, but by study end, daily calorie intake had increased some 400 calories in the study group, more than in controls.

Similarly, protein intake increased from 1 gram per kg at baseline to 1.7 gram/kg in study patients. Among controls, protein intake remained virtually unchanged by study end. He noted that calorie intake, though higher in the study group, was still low in both groups when compared with recommendations made for CAPD patients. Protein equivalent of nitrogen appearance normalized by standard weight(lTNA), also increased significantly in the study group but not in controls. Triceps skinfold thickness and midarm muscle area showed a non significant trend toward an increase in both groups, but more important increases were observed in the study group, she added.

Reduction in malnutrition

Patients were subdivided into groups according to the degree of malnutrition-minor, moderate, or severe. Although most had only mild malnutrition at baseline, “the nutritional status seemed to improve more markedly in the study group then in the control group.” del Campo said, “and at follow-up, the frequency of patients with moderate or severe supplements was also well tolerated, and no side-effects were reported.” There were 19 hospitalizations during the study interval- eight for peritonitis- but no significant difference were documented between the two groups.

“In conclusion, this oral egg Albumen based supplement significantly improved serum Albumen, calorie, and protein intake as well as nPNA , and it was associated with a trend toward an increased in anthropometric parameters,” del Campo said, adding that at approximately US 70¿ a day,the supplement is also a very inexpensive way to improve nutritional status in CAPD patients.
