Methionine content of food items

To facilitate following a methionine restriction diet, I’ve put together a Filemaker solution¬†which will provide you with the methionine content for the majority of the items in the USDA nutrients database, version SR27. The solution also includes the content of cysteine, leucine, glycine, and choline. The Predicted Renal Acid Load (PRAL) is also calculated, using two different formulas: the usual traditional formula which uses average values for sulphur-containing amino acid content, and a more refined formula which uses the actual contents of the sulphur amino acids methionine and cysteine.

The solution is optimized for iPad tablets, although it will run on other iOS devices. You will need to install the free Filemaker Go app to use the solution. The solution, as a Filemaker file, can also be used on Windows or Mac computers which have Filemaker Pro or Filemaker Pro Advanced applications installed.
