Footnotes:

This food, briefly described as ASPARAGUS,FRZ,UNPREP, 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 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
Fiber, total dietary Function: Adequate fiber improves laxation. Reduces the risk of coranary heart disease. Helps maintain normal blood glucose levels. Copper, Cu, is a component of enzymes in iron metabolism. Iron, Fe, prevents microcitic hypochromic anemia. Phosphorus, P, helps in the maintenance of PH, storage and transfer of energy and nucleotide synthesis. Potassium, K, maintains cell function. Potassium blunts the rise in blood pressure due to excess sodium intake and decrease recurrence of kidney stones 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. Vitamin B-6 is a coenzyme to metabolize amino acids, glycogen and sphingoid bases. Vitamin C, total ascorbic acid aka Dehydroascorbic Acid is a protective antioxidant. 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. Folate, total is a coenzyme in the metabolism of nucleic and amino acids. Folate prevents megaloblastic anemia.
