The truncation of PDCAAS values to 100% can be defended only for the limited number of situations in which the protein is to be used as the sole source of protein in the diet.
Ademas, proporciono un PDCAAS (protein digestibility corrected amino acid score) de 0,9, a los 90 dias de elaborada, pues los aminoacidos esenciales, triptofano y el conjunto, metionina + cistina, no lograron cumplir con el patron establecido por la FAO.
The two most widely accepted measures of protein quality, which focus on digestibility, are the True Protein Digestibility (TPD) and the Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS).
The new method, called the "protein digestibility corrected amino acid score" (PDCAAS), is based on human dietary amino acid requirements.

The protein content of the chicken powder by weight is far higher (72-75% versus 17%) compared to the corn-soy blend, although the Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS) values are similar.
