    However, this really not much different to the info you can get from any nutrient database like the USDA or the one 43 posted a link to. Although it highlights which are the limiting aminos [the last column under 'chemical score'] it doesn't indicate by how much you would have to supplement it to make up any shortfall. So, as I said originally, time-consuming, impractical and totally unnecessary.

    The fact of the matter is that aminos from digested proteins [whether complete or incomplete] are held in an amino acid pool within the body so that as long as different protein sources are consumed throughout the day, there should not be any shortages. It would appear that the purpose of this table is to aid in supplementing the diet of third world countries where their choice of protein source is limited and their intake is meagre. Well found, though!

    Thank you cleaver that was exactly the sort of thing I was looking for. I would imagine this would be very helpful to the vegan bodybuilding community.
