ALANA CLINE: The data that I used for that study actually were from the control group that did not have the higher carbohydrate intake. The protein intake was even lower with the test group. So I went ahead and just used the control group for that and it is still a little bit lower.

DOUGLAS WILMORE: Thank you for the presentation. Do you have information on the source of the dietary protein over the period of 30 years or so?

ALANA CLINE: I do not have the historical data on the source of the protein. Some of our more recent studies are showing that there is a higher intake now of protein from non-meat sources. That is something that we would want to consider because there is a difference in the quality of the protein that is being consumed. That is something that we do need to look at more closely.

DOUGLAS WILMORE: So we have no idea about protein efficiency?

ALANA CLINE: Not for the historical data.

ROBERT NESHEIM: One last question.

ROBERT WOLFE: On that slide showing. voluntary intake of supplements you had two columns, amino acids and protein, and one was like 36 percent and the other was 30. Does that mean that 36 percent were taking amino acids and a separate 30 percent were taking protein.

ALANA CLINE: Yes. There were two separate questions.

ROBERT WOLFE: So that was the total of the two things they were taking in terms of dietary supplements?

ALANA CLINE: No, I am sorry. It was either one or the other. So it would be about 30 percent. They could be taking both, We were not able to really clarify that with the questionnaire that we had.
