Term Definition
Amino Acids

When proteins are digested in the diet, amino acids remain - amino acids are either essential (obtained through diet) or non-essential (made by the body from the essential amino acids). Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, which are formed by linking amino acids together in chains. Amino acids are either essential (must be consumed through the diet) or nonessential (made by the body from the essential amino acids). There are eight essential amino acids and twelve non-essential amino acids.
