Post Protein digestion of blood fractions.

Hello, all;

(If this is the wrong forum for this question, I apologize.)

I am currently researching protein digestion and I would like to ask some questions on this issue.

Is it true that blood fractions such as albumin can be metabolized? By which I mean, are such proteins, when ingested, catabolized into their constiuent amino acids in the digestive tract to supply energy?

I have read conflicting information on this issue. One person suggests that albumin would either be reabsorbed or eliminated, as is bilirubin when it is processed from red blood cells in the liver. And since albumin and other blood proteins are already the product of food digestion, it seems doubtful that they can properly be said to be metabolized like "food" themselves.

Any information would be helpful, as is any resources (websites, articles, etc., on protein digestion, especially partaining to proteins derived from blood components) to help me with my quest.

-M. Davis.
