Looking forward to add some proteins to your diet? Here’s the list of 3 protein rich foods other than dietary products:
Isolated from Soybean, Soy protein is the most potential protein one can inhibit. And the most interesting fact about Soy Protein is that it has been proven and accepted scientifically to carry all the essential protein types. It has been called as complete protein since it carry all the essential amino acids required by the human body.
Pea is the next best source of protein. If you do not like dairy products or eggs or even soy, Pea Protein is a complete replacement to all these stuffs. Since we all are familiar to Peas in food such as Pasta, and sometimes in Burgers too, there’s no more need to explain in depth about it. Similar to Soy, Pea protein also provide essential amino acids.
Rice protein is the alternate to the vegetarian proteins such as Soy and Pea. It is known to be high in amino acids containing sulfur, methionine, cysteine, and more.
However, most rice protein supplements or products present out there are made up of a combination of soy protein or pea protein along with rice protein. Since rice protein is known to carry lesser amount of lysine (an essential amino acid for humans), and pea protein is known to carry certainly more of lysine, a combination of these two has been included in supplements or foods in order to balance the amount of essential amino acids in the human body.
