Proteins in food, and the trick of complementarity

Proteins in food, and the trick of complementarity

Animal food in general is a good source of protein because it has a lot of highly bioavailable proteins and it also has a very high protein quality, all the essential amino acids we need, and in the right proportions. If you think about it, our requirement for amino acids roughly reflects the amino acidic […]

Building Blocks of Protein

[Buidling Blocks of Protein] Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. They contain carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen. Some amino acids also contain sulfur. These elements come together to form amino acids. All amino acids have tetrahedral carbon, which is bonded by an amino group, a carboxyl group, a hydrogen group, and an R […]
