Protein comes from the food we eat and are classed as either complete or incomplete proteins, complete proteins come from animal products such as chicken, fish and dairy products and they contain all the essential amino acids which are needed to help keep our body fit and healthy. Incomplete protein are found in plant foots such as grains, nuts, beans and vegetables and provide a limited array of amino acids. Incomplete proteins must be eaten in a vast amount to enable us to receive all that is needed for protein building. Incomplete and complete proteins can be combined together to compliment each other, for example many cereals are low in lysine but high in cystine, kidney beans are high in lysine but low in cystine. Examples of combining proteins are, rice and beans, bread and cheese and cereal and milk. Recent studies have shown that the combinations don’t have to be eaten at the same time, the necessary building of muscle and tissue is still done providing they are eaten during the course of the day. Where do we get protein from?
What is the purpose of protein? Approximately 15% of the average person's body's mass is made up of proteins. Protein molecules make up much of the fabric of the human body, including muscle, ligaments, skin, cartilage and hair. Proteins, and the different amino acids that make them up, are important for human growth, tissue repair and replacement Your bones, muscles, even your hair and nails, depend on your consuming enough protein. Proteins are essential to the structure of your red blood cells and important to your body in building its immune system in order to resist infection, regulate hormones and enzymes and the reparation of the body's tissue. 10 to 20% of the calories that you consume each day should be protein.
