Footnotes:

This food, briefly described as AMARANTH GRAIN,UNCKD, supplies an extra generous amount of the following vitamins, minerals and nutrients:


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 Methionine is the 5th of 9 essential amino acids Lysine is the 8th of 9 essential amino acids Tryptophan is the 9th of 9 essential amino acids
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 18:2 undifferentiated Ω6 Starch Iron, Fe, prevents microcitic hypochromic anemia. Magnesium, Mg, is a cofactor for enzyme systems. Manganese, Mn, is involved in formation of bone, as well as enzymes involved in amino acid, cholsterol and carbohydrate metabolism. 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. Zinc, Zn, is a component of multiple enzymes and proteins; involved in the regulation of gene expression. Betaine is present in a significant amount.
