Cover for Metabolic amino acid availability in foods of plant origin: implications for human and livestock nutrition.

The bioavailability of amino acids is the proportion of ingested amino acids that are digested and absorbed in a form suitable for protein synthesis. However, it cannot be measured directly, so various methods have been developed to estimate the bioavailability of amino acids and protein in food of ...

Cover for Modelling amino acid metabolism in ruminants.

Models of ruminant digestive processes which vary in complexity but lead to estimates of protein availability (to the ruminant) are presented. Potential sources of error in the estimates of protein synthesis and the complexity of data and analytical models required to overcome these problems are...
