Podcast: Isotope labelling to measure protein digestion

 AnuraBy using isotope-labelled proteins, researchers at St. John’s Research Institute, Bengaluru have developed a novel method to accurately measure the digestibility of dietary proteins. Prof. Anura Kurpad explains how the new method is non-invasive and easy to perform.
