Table-2: Amino acid profile of biomass protein produced on banana peels by Arachniotus ruber.
The amino acid profile of Moringa oleifera leaf meal (Table 2) showed presence of essential amino acids such as methionine (0.37%), lysine (1.32%), leucine (1.95%) and iso-leucine (0.825%) which are lower than that reported by Moyo et al.
Essential amino acid requirements of an organism can be approximated from its body tissue amino acid profile (De Silva & Anderson 1995) because dietary amino acids are used for protein synthesis, and the concentration of amino acids in the lean tissues of an animal should indicate the balance of amino acids required in its diet (Bautista-Teruel & Millamena 1999).
Soybean possess an amino acid profile that implies a potential suitability as a partial substitute for animal-based meals, although it would be necessary to establish an optimal level.
Kura brings its clean label, true-to-nature philosophy to this growing category with a plant-based vegan protein that contains a complete amino acid profile derived from an organic pea, organic sunflower and oat protein blend that is rich in prebiotic beta glucan fibers.
Both sub-samples were then analyzed for amino acid profile using Hitachi 835-50 amino acid analyser (Hitachi, Tokyo, Japan).
Diagnosis of CTLN1 is based on clinical suspicion and laboratory evaluation (plasma ammonia >150 [micro]mol/L, plasma citrulline >1000 [micro]mol/L, and absence of arginosuccinic acid in the amino acid profile).
The method was tested also on reference materials for the identification of proteinaceous binders on the basis of the quantitative determination of the amino acid profile. Whole egg (We), animal glue (Ag), and whole milk (Wm) were applied on untreated wood specimens (Table 1); whole egg was slightly beaten to obtain a homogeneous mixture, animal glue was dissolved in warm water, and whole milk was used without any treatment.
The amino acid profile of protein hydrolysates was determined by an L-8800 amino acid analyser (Hitachi, Tokyo, Japan) with an electronic heating bath and two single-channel colorimeters according to the manufacturer's user manual (Hitachi High-Technologies Corporation, Japan, 1998).
Comparing the amino acid profile of all meals to the FAO standard (Food and Agriculture Organization) (WHO, 2007) in Table 4, it is verified that the produced meals showed higher values than the required, which highlights the quality of proteins found in tilapia, salmon, sardine and tuna meals.
The approach relies on analyzing skin secretions - or sweat - to build an amino acid profile that is unique to the devices' owner.
The ingredient delivers complementary combinations of plant proteins, including pea, rice, and oats to improve the protein quality by delivering an amino acid profile closer to that of animal protein.
The amino acid profile revealed an isoleucine level of 5.9 [micro]mol/L, leucine of 1166 [micro]mol/L, and valine of 159 [micro]mol/L.
