    Milk proteins are excellent sources of sulfur-containing amino acids methionine and cysteine, in particular whey proteins. Cysteine is synthesized from methionine by γ-cystathionase. However, cysteine has to be included ...

    Holstein steers were used in two 5 × 5 Latin square experiments to evaluate the sparing of methionine by alternative sources of methyl groups (betaine or choline). Steers were housed in metabolism crates and limit fed ...
  • Campbell, C.G.; St Jean, G.; Titgemeyer, Evan C. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    Two studies were conducted to evaluate sulfur amino acid requirements of growing steers. In trial 1, six ruminally cannulated steers (352 lb) were used to determine methionine requirements . Treatments were abomasal infusions ...

    Texturized vegetable protein (TVP) based foods offer several advantages compared to animal protein, including lower costs and improved health benefits. Wheat gluten is often processed using extrusion to produce TVP. ...
