When It comes to protein in a vegan diet, we really have to look at the quality as well as the quantity.
Out of the 22 amino acid building blocks, 9 are essential amino acids. These are tryptophan, histidine, methionine + cysteine (either can fill for the other’s role as amino acids), isoleucine, threonine, valine, lysine, phenylalanine + tyrosine (either), and leucine. As I already posted before about tofu, I am providing more information that it’s possible for one to live on a vegan diet.
So hopefully when someone asks about where proteins are from again, we are all informed about how much protein we get from different sources!
