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 Crystalline amino acids and nitrogen emission.

Aspects of the use of crystalline amino acids in the feed to influence nitrogen excretion and nitrogen emission are discussed. To make use of amino acids in addition to feed protein, both animal and dietary factors must be considered. Possible feeding and feeding strategies including the reduction...
