† The World Health Organization provides a single recommended daily intake for the combinations of Methionine and Cysteine and the combination of Phenylalanine and Tyrosine.

Arginine, Cystine and Tyrosine are required by infants and growing children and we have therefore included them in the list of essential amino acids. [Imura K, Okada A (1998). "Amino acid metabolism in pediatric patients"]

~Data not available for tilde (~) items.
Proteins are made up of chains of amino acids. A complete protein contains all essential amino acids. We are currently compiling pages describing the benefits of nutrients and recently wrote about the benefits of Arginine. We only have basic data on the amount of protein contained in Capers, canned and not the breakdown of amino acid content.

Good Fat and Bad Fat comparison for 8.6 grams of Capers, canned
Polyunsaturated Fats: Polyunsaturated fat can be found mostly in nuts, seeds, fish, algae, leafy greens, and krill. Whole food sources are always best, as processing and heating may damage polyunsaturated fats.

Monounsaturated Fats: Foods containing monounsaturated fats reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol, while possibly increasing HDL (good) cholesterol. ["You Can Control Your Cholesterol: A Guide to Low-Cholesterol Living". Merck & Co. Inc.]


Trans Fatty Acids: The National Academy of Sciences has concluded there is no safe level of trans fat consumption. This is because any incremental increase in trans fat intake increases the risk of coronary heart disease. [Dietary Reference Intakes for Energy, Carbohydrate, Fiber, Fat, Fatty Acids, Cholesterol, Protein, and Amino Acids (Macronutrients). National Academies Press. p. 504]

Saturated Fats: Consumption of saturated fat is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease in the view of the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation, the American Heart Association, the British Heart Foundation, the National Heart Foundation of Australia, the National Heart Foundation of New Zealand and the World Heart Federation.

In children, consumption of monounsaturated oils is associated with healthier serum lipid profiles (a group of tests that are often ordered together to determine risk of coronary heart disease.). ["A cross-sectional study of dietary habits and lipid profiles. The Rivas-Vaciamadrid study". Eur. J. Pediatr.].

Omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil, fish and seafood have been shown to lower the risk of heart attacks. [National Institute of Health (August 1, 2005). "Omega-3 fatty acids, fish oil, alpha-linolenic acid"].

Omega-6 fatty acids in sunflower oil and safflower oil may also reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. [Willett WC (September 2007). "The role of dietary n-6 fatty acids in the prevention of cardiovascular disease". Journal of Cardiovascular Medicine].

In one study, Omega-3 fatty acids reduced prostate tumor growth, slowed histopathological progression, and increased survival. [Mihelin M, Trontelj JV, Stålberg E (August 1991). "Muscle fiber recovery functions studied with double pulse stimulation". Muscle & Nerve 1].

A study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute showed that High levels of docosahexaenoic acid were associated with a reduced risk of breast cancer. [Pala V, Krogh V, Muti P, et al. (July 2001). "Erythrocyte membrane fatty acids and subsequent breast cancer: a prospective Italian study". Journal of the National Cancer Institute 93]
