We know that proteins are an essential and indispensable for most vital functions of the organism. However, proteins are a very complex nutrient in its assimilation and use, being a food very difficult for the digestive process; it requires good information to make a proper decision regarding the proper consumption and take advantage positively of food in our diet.
It must first be noted that:
As mentioned in the box above, the proteins are difficult to digest. They are the one that use most energy for decomposition and assimilation, so if there is a surplus, instead of being carriers, they consume energy. In the daily requirement, you must consider many issues, such as age, if in this period of growth, lactation, or the daily energy expenditure, as if you are sedentary or athlete. In childhood are required generous amounts of protein, however, it is important to find a good balance for the feeding of children: no excess or missing. In the case of a sedentary adult, for example, needs much less protein.
It is said that, in general, an adult requires 30 daily grams of protein and good ration. An athlete, for example, needs between 40 and 50 grams. However, consider an interesting issue, consumption of animal protein and vegetables.
It has been long believed that animal protein is complete: the meat, egg, milk, butter and all foods derived from animals are the preferred food for a long time if we talked about protein. On the contrary, many feel that the plant proteins are incomplete and lacking. This is wrong. Many current studies have shown that animal products are not needed, and it has been shown that many fruits, vegetables, grains and seeds are powerful sources of protein.
It is true that meat contains animal proteins. But this only means that the animal already developed their own proteins from amino acids that have eaten plants. However, in the process of preparing protein, animal protein has been charged with their genetic code, i.e., their animal instincts, its corpulence information, energy, brute force and instinctive.
Following is a list of advantages and disadvantages between the animal and plant proteins:
