What is Protein?
Proteins are biochemical compounds that are made up of combinations of various essential amino acids. Our bodies absorb protein from the foods we eat, and as we digest them, they’re broken back down into free amino acids to fuel our metabolism.
Complete proteins—those containing all of the essential amino acids—are found in animal foods such as meat, fish, poultry, eggs, and milk. Soybeans are the only plant protein considered to be a complete protein.
