Why use the AkuWM Healthy Snack?
Amino acids are the basic building blocks of protein, these include the essential or nonessential. Non-essential amino acids are produced in the human body from other proteins and carbohydrates. Essential amino acids are not produced in the human body and must therefore be obtained from the diet. There are eight main essential amino acids for the adult human body - leucine, isoleucine, valine, threonine, methionine, phenylalanine, tryptophan and lysine. When a protein contains the correct ratio of essential amino for a human being, we consider it to have a high biological value. If one or more of the essential amino acids are rare, we consider the protein to have a low biological value. High-biological value proteins are obtained from animal sources such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs, milk, cheese and yogurt. Low biological value proteins are found in plants such as legumes, grains, nuts, seeds and vegetables.
