The Amino Acid Song (to the tune of Old McDonald) Tracey Tripp, Nell Ditch, Julie Milam and Frances Jenkins Amino acids are the building blocks of protein And there are 20 of them. Nine of them we call essential Our body cannot make them. They are histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan and valine. The other 11 are non-essential Our body can produce them. They are alanine, arginine, asparagine, aspartic acid, cysteine, glutamine, glutamic acid, glycine, proline, serine, and tyrosine. A complete protein source provides all 9 essential amino acids. Meat and dairy products do this Most vegetable sources don’t. Complementary proteins put together All 9 essential amino acids. Like rice and lentils, tortillas and beans, peanut butter and bread. Our amino acid song is done And it’s been lots of fun!
