Is a protein a protein?

Is a carbohydrate a carbohydrate? no. Is a calorie a calorie? no. So how important is the quality of protein we use. Some one may be getting 400g.(2g. per lb) of protein a day from a bean or vegetable source. If I am getting only 200g(1 g. per lb) of protein from CFM whey isolate are we both giving ourselves plenty of protein to support new growth. Is quality as important as quantity?

A protein is not protein. See “The Protein Insider”, “Lean Eatin’” and “Battle of the Proteins”, all articles at T-mag. And of course soy sucks, at least three articles on that topic at T-mag.
