    I've been using the cronometer (I don't know how accurate that thing is) and for 30g of protein, I always get far higher readings for tryptophan in cheeses than I do for milks.

    I was always under the impression that because the whey is taken away, cheeses are a lot lower in tryptophan?

    I'm obviously doing something wrong or the cronometer isn't correct.

    Anyone know why this is?

    Maybe compare it with another nutritional tool? Nutritiondata.com

    Thanks. I will have a look, as not aware of that website.

    Perhaps one quart of milk yielding 30g of protein (just an example) gives a lower amount of protein in the cheese? So you have to eat more of the cheese to make it up to the 30g mark and in the process you end up eating more tryptophan, fat, etc?
