Experimental: Lysine metabolic availability
Lysine metabolism from pure amino acids and cereal foods in children.
Dietary Supplement: L-Amino Acid
8 different lysine intakes (L-Amino Acid and food) will be tested for 8 hours each.
- 13 CO2 production [ Time Frame: 8 hours (1 study day) ]Breath samples will be collected during the study day, to measure the rate of oxidation of tracer phenylalanine in the expired breath.
- Urinary lysine [ Time Frame: 8 hours, 2 samples at the beginning and end of the study day. ]Urine will be collected during the study day to measure urinary excretion of lysine.
