Dietary sources of taurine powder:

1. Marine Animals:

Fish, Shrimp, Crab, and Shellfish: These marine animals are one of the main sources of taurine. For instance, fish, shrimp, crab, and shellfish contain approximately 100-800 mg/100 g of taurine.

Specific Fish Species: Certain fish species such as mackerel, sardines, and horse mackerel also have high levels of taurine.

2. Mammals:

Meat: Meats from livestock and poultry, such as chicken, lamb, and pork, provide a certain amount of taurine, typically containing about 20-120 mg/100 g of taurine.

Hearts and Livers: The hearts and livers of mammals also contain higher amounts of taurine.

3. Other Foods:

Nuts: Although the content is lower, nuts like walnuts and almonds contain trace amounts of taurine, approximately 0.2-0.5 mg/100 g.

Legumes: Leguminous foods such as soybeans and black beans also contain trace amounts of taurine, about 0.1-0.2 mg/100 g.

Eggs and Milk: While eggs and milk have lower taurine content, they are still a part of the daily diet.

4. Processed Foods:

According to national food safety standards, taurine can be added as a nutritional fortifier in various foods such as formulated milk, formulated milk powder, flavored fermented milk, milk tablets, milk-containing beverages, soy milk/soy milk powder, special-purpose beverages, and jelly. These processed foods may contain added taurine powder.

Although some plant-based foods like nuts and legumes also contain trace amounts of taurine, the primary dietary sources of taurine are still animal-based foods, particularly marine animals and mammals. Additionally, the human body can synthesize taurine on its own, although the synthesis rate varies with age and physiological state.
