Hi, how is amino acids calculated, in what units? mg/kcal ?
Requirements for amino acids were determined based on body weight for different genders and age categories. What you are seeing in your Cronometer account is the number of grams of each of amino acid from various foods.
Please let me know if you'd like additional clarification!
