Mean (±SEM) plasma phenylalanine (A), leucine (B), total branched chain amino acids (BCAA; C), total essential amino acids (EAA; D), total non-essential amino acids (NEAA; E) and total amino acid (AA; F) concentrations following ingestion of 20 g casein with (PRO-CHO; n=12) or without (PRO; n=12) 40 g carbohydrate in healthy older men. Phenylalanine: significant time (P<0.0001) and interaction (P=0.0441) effect. Leucine: significant time (P<0.0001), treatment (P<0.0001) and interaction (P<0.0001) effect. Total BCAA: significant time (P<0.0001), treatment (P=0.0006) and interaction (P<0.0001) effect. Total EAA: significant time (P<0.0001), treatment (P=0.0182) and interaction (P=0.0028) effect. Total NEAA: significant time (P<0.0001) and interaction (P=0.0004) effect. Total AA: significant time (P<0.0001) and interaction (P<0.0012) effect. *= significantly lower when compared with the PRO experiment (P<0.05).
