I'm trying to write a little application calculating the biological value of protein content of different meals using the amino acid frequency of different foods.
The idea is that the user can choose amount and type of different ingredients and finally obtains the biological value index for the meal.
For this calculation I'd need a list of amino acid frequencies of the different foods.
Any idea how I could obtain this?
My first idea was to just use the DNA of the different plants to extrapolate the proteins synthesized and then obtain the amino acid frequency from there but I know that genome and proteome is not correlating.
Any ideas / thoughts?
