Yes, of course. But I read it in English. I even have a free computer program that will calculate your requirements down to the individual essential or slightly essential amino acid levels. And if deficient, will suggest which foods you might want to use to make the daily requirements. I guess the program tracks about 30 well-known nutrients that we need. For certain medium-chain fatty acids, you'll need to look that up directly from the USDA which now tracks a large number of different types of fatty acids, the Omega-3's, the Omega-6's, and even the DHA and EPA in them. Very impressive of our government.
