  • Here is a table of essential amino acids from the category "nobody will believe you anyway."
  • It shows that there are no "essential animal proteins". All amino acids are in every food, and if their share is small, you can eat more food. Legumes contain everything and a lot. Peanuts and lentils allow you to cheaply stuff yourself with amino acids. Soy, of course, is in the lead, but the method of its cultivation is based on the poisoning of all living things, so it is boycotted.
  • You need to look from a computer, the full version of the site, it is convenient to arrange there by clicking on the column headings. I give the link to the old version, which has a column "average value".

  • Personally, I'm not chasing amino acids. According to the experiments of Max Rubner, only 4% of food goes to building material, and the rest of the protein has to be hard to fight. (I assume that he tested gluten, there are only references to his experiments in a book by Max Bircher-Benner a century ago)
  • Ask in as much detail as possible what a "pathogenic microflora" is, what food it eats, and what waste it emits, then you will understand the effect of proteins on health.
  • If amino acids are collected in a whole set, then the pathogen will build its own organism from this set, and only its poisonous waste will be absorbed into our intestines. That is why it is better to take incomplete sets of amino acids so that the assembly of proteins takes place after leaking into the intestine.
  • Colin Campbell goes on to say:
    "Quality refers to the efficiency with which dietary proteins are used in the tissue formation process. It would be great if maximum efficiency matched better health, but it is not. This is why the term" efficiency " and “quality” is misleading. Looking ahead, there is a large body of research that convincingly demonstrates that “low-quality” plant proteins, which provide slow but steady synthesis of new proteins, are the healthiest. what is contained in a particular food is determined by observing the growth rate of the animals that consume it. Some foods, namely animal foods, provide very high levels of protein efficiency and value.
    Emphasis on the growth rate of the body as if it were an indicator of good health , stimulates the consumption of "highest quality" protein. any marketer, a product that is said to be of good quality, immediately gains consumer confidence. For more than 100 years we have been misled by incorrect terminology, and often we began to think that higher quality means better health.
    The concept of "quality protein" was not widely known to the public, but the influence of this idea was - and remains - very significant. Those who, for example, decide to switch to plant foods, even today ask themselves the question: "Where will I get my proteins from?" - kaas if in plants they are not. Even though people know that plants contain protein, they are still concerned about its "poor quality". This led them to believe that they must carefully select the combination of proteins from various plant foods with each meal so that these proteins can mutually compensate for each other's amino acid deficiencies. However, this is an exaggeration. Today we know that using its incredibly complex metabolic system, the human body is able to generate all the vital amino acids from the natural set of plant proteins found in the foods we consume daily. There is no need to consume high amounts of plant proteins or carefully plan the menu for each meal. Unfortunately, the deeply ingrained concept of protein quality largely obscures this information. "
  • These are not all my trump cards, I just show that vegetable proteins are no worse than animals. If I begin to prove that they are better, the answer will be blocked, so I will limit myself to what I have just said.

In the amino acid composition and the ratio of our digestive tract to the digested food. Plant food is more scarce in terms of the set of amino acids, unlike animal food. It is necessary to search for 100% of the amino acid composition in animal food, and in plant food only soybeans reach 70-80%. This is why vegetarians need to carefully plan their diet.

Dietary proteins can be categorized into animal and vegetable proteins. Animal proteins are found in meat and poultry, fish and seafood, eggs and dairy products, and vegetable proteins are found in soybeans, cereals, legumes and nuts.

Unlike animal proteins, vegetable proteins have an incomplete set of essential the human body of essential amino acids (isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, valine, histidine), i.e. are defective.
