Tracking proteins?

Does anyone have any experience (or suggestions) on how to track proteins
and pepidoglycans as they move through a food chain?   E.g., Biological
transport and fate of nutrients from speciefic sources.  We want to know
which critters in
a mixed culture are actually using the proteins (or energy from the
proteins)  from the specific nutrient source as opposed to metabolizing
other organic material in the microcosm.

The only technology we can think of is C-14 labeling.
