Footnotes:

This food, briefly described as FISH,TUNA,LT,CND IN H2O,DRND SOL, supplies an extra generous amount of the following vitamins, minerals and nutrients:
Energy This food has a high source of energy. The amount of energy is measured in joules or Calories (kilocals).


Protein is the major structural component of all cells in the body and function as enzymes in membranes as transport carriers and as some hormones. During digestion and absorption, dietary proteins are broken down into amino acids which become building blocks of these fuctional and structural compounds. Histidine is the 1st of 9 essential amino acids Isoleucine is the 2nd of 9 essential amino acids Threonine is the 3rd of 9 essential amino acids Valine is the 4th of 9 essential amino acids Methionine is the 5th of 9 essential amino acids Tyrosine is the 6th of 9 essential amino acids Leucine is the 7th of 9 essential amino acids Lysine is the 8th of 9 essential amino acids Tryptophan is the 9th of 9 essential amino acids Cystine Phenylalanine
Total lipid (fat) This food has a higher than average amount of lipids (fat). Fat is required by the body, but some sources of fat are better than others. The fat types that are present in generous amounts (if any) are as follows: Fatty acids, total polyunsaturated 22:6 n-3 (DHA) Ω3 20:5 n-3 (EPA) Ω3 22:5 n-3 (DPA) Ω3 Iron, Fe, prevents microcitic hypochromic anemia. Magnesium, Mg, is a cofactor for enzyme systems. Phosphorus, P, helps in the maintenance of PH, storage and transfer of energy and nucleotide synthesis. Selenium, Se, provides defense against oxidative stress and regulation of thyroid hormone action, and reduction and oxidation. Sodium, Na, and chloride, in excessive amounts, increase blood pressure, heart disease, hypertension and stroke. Zinc, Zn, is a component of multiple enzymes and proteins; involved in the regulation of gene expression. Vitamin B-6 is a coenzyme to metabolize amino acids, glycogen and sphingoid bases. Vitamin B-12 prevents megabolastic anemia. Coenzyme in nucleic acid metabolism. Vitamin D aka Calciferol maintains serum calcium and phosphorus for bone health. Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is also included. Vitamin D (D2 + D3) is included also. Riboflavin aka Vitamin B-2 is a conenzyme in numerous redux reactions. Niacin is a coenzyme in metabolism of Carbohydrates and branched amino acids. Choline, total is a precursor for acetylcholine, phospholipids and betaine. Retinol is present in a significant amount. Tocotrienol, alpha Arginine Alanine Aspartic acid Glutamic acid Glycine Proline Serine Cholesterol
