BCAAs stands for branched-chain amino acids
. It's a group of three essential amino acids: leucine, isoleucine and valine, and are most commonly found in red meat and dairy.
Toopcham et al  reported that the tripeptide Met-CysSer, containing the branched-chain amino acid
Met at the Nterminus, exhibited higher ACE inhibitory activity than that of tetrapeptide Ala-Leu-Ser-Cys.
In conclusion, it was shown that the plasma levels of branched-chain amino acids
remained within normal limits and cognitive functions did not deteriorate following liver transplantation despite a free diet in our patients with classic-type MSUD in our case presentation.

The amino acids in whey include a high proportion of the muscle-building branched-chain amino acids
Whey contains high quality and nutritious dairy proteins like alpha-lactoglobulins, beta-lactoglobulins, bovine serum albumin, and immunoglobulins and is good for healthy living due to its richness in the essential amino acids especially the branched-chain amino acids
which include leucine, isoleucine, and valine .
