Determination of amino acids - Food and Beverage - Food

The method enables fast quantitative determination in feeds, mixed fodders, and raw materials of the following amino acids: arginine, lysine, tyro sine, phenylalanine, histidine, leucine and iso -leucine (total), methionine, valine, proline, alanine, glycine, cystine, tryptophan, aspartic and glutamic acids.

Since during the sample decomposition asparagine and glutamine are hydrolyzed to aspartic and glutamic acids, respectively, the content of these two acids represents the total content of both the acids and the amides.
