This food, briefly described as MAC & CHS,DRY MIX,PREP W/ 2 pct MILK & 80 pct STK MARGARINE DRY MX, 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 monounsaturated Fatty acids, total polyunsaturated Fatty acids, total trans-monoenoic Fatty acids, total trans-polyenoic 18:3 undifferentiated Ω3 18:3 n-3 c,c,c (ALA) Ω3 18:2 undifferentiated Ω6 18:2 n-6 c,c Ω6 18:3 n-6 c,c,c Ω6 20:3 n-6 Ω6
Carbohydrate, by difference The RDA for carbohydrates is based on its role as the primary energy source for the brain. The AMDR is based on its role as a source of Calories (kcal) while maintaining body weight. Starch Lactose Maltose
Calcium, Ca, is the essential role in blood clotting, muscle contraction, nerve transmission, bone and tooth formation 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-12 prevents megabolastic anemia. Coenzyme in nucleic acid metabolism. Thiamin aka Vitamin B-1 Riboflavin aka Vitamin B-2 is a conenzyme in numerous redux reactions. Niacin is a coenzyme in metabolism of Carbohydrates and branched amino acids. Pantothenic acid is a coenzyme in fatty acid metabolism. Folate, total is a coenzyme in the metabolism of nucleic and amino acids. Folate prevents megaloblastic anemia. Choline, total is a precursor for acetylcholine, phospholipids and betaine. Betaine is present in a significant amount. Dihydrophylloquinone Folic acid Folate, DFE Arginine Alanine Aspartic acid Glutamic acid Glycine Proline Serine Fatty acids, total trans Fatty acids, total saturated Cholesterol
