Wassup, to all you nutrition geeks!
Got another Q - Unfortunately, that gosh dang vegan author also made me question the efficiency at which animal vs. veggie protein is broken down. He said that our bodies can only get about 25% of the total amino acids out of animal flesh, versus 50% for veggies??!!
Also, speaking of amino acids, I have learned long ago in my first few months in fitness, that most veggies cannot provide complete proteins. Meaning, they do not have all the essencial amino acids like animal proteins do. But, I just read an interesting post that hemp protein IS a complete protein?! So, what gives???
Again, any and all feedback would be greatly appreciated!
[If nothing else, I want to have more firepower in the form of education fight the vegan movement!!!]
