Amino Acid Finder

complete proteins and bodybuildi

With this tool you can sort thru a database of thousands of foods and sort them by the desired amino acid content. This is a preliminary tool which is a stepping stone to my complimentary protein finder software. When you are combining plant based foods to get as high protein quality as possible, you need to be able to find specific foods that are high in particular amino acids, hence this tool. For vegetarians, the typical problem is lysine and tryptophan. To find foods that are high in these, select the amino acid you desire and then click on the sort button.

Choose the following
Step 1: Amino Acid:
Step 2: To sort, click this button —>

 

The following list shows all top 100 sources of the selected amino acid. Only plant based food sources are shown. The food with the highest percentage of this amino acid is shown at the top of the list.

This software is still under development!
