Hi all! I'm glutenfree vegan and tracking my nutrition in Cron-o-meter, and amongst a few other deficiencies I've noticed, is a deficiency in the amino acid Methionine. Does anyone else notice this?
It looks like vegan sources where it's available are pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, and brazilnuts. I try not to eat to much nuts and seeds because of the omega-6's, but maybe I should still eat more? Or should I just take a Methionine supplement?
make sure you don't get too much, it's not good for you. a lot of the studies that have talked about high protein and life expectancy found methionine as the culprit.
If sesames seeds are high in it, you can make your own hummus with tahini and I think you'll be covered.
Cron-o-meter must be really accurate to give you that much detail. One problem I've had with such things is that vegan food like seitan, tempeh and quinoa weren't on them, but I haven't tried one in many years.
Who eats just a tablespoon of tahini???? LOL
