The Nutritionist 2017 Webinar Series
Dr. Mark Hanigan: Is there really a single limiting amino acid? April 5, 2017
Dr. Mark Hanigan’s talk centered around the new Dairy NRC recommendations for amino acids.
Dr Hanigan presented an argument against considering amino acid and protein in the traditional weakest link or single limiting aa hypothesis. He proposed that we consider it rather a leaky bucket with, perhaps, multiple aa shortfalls limiting efficiency and productivity.
