Around the world, millions of people don’t get enough protein. Protein malnutrition leads to the condition known as kwashiorkor. Lack of protein can cause growth failure, loss of muscle mass, decreased immunity, weakening of the heart and respiratory system, and death.
Protein is the single most important food we eat. The name comes form the Greek “protos,” meaning “first place” or “takes first place.” Every cell in our body contains and needs protein to survive!
All Protein Isn't Alike!
The quality of protein is measured by the balance and amounts of the essential amino acids it contains. If the protein contains all nine essential amino acids in proper amounts to support your body’s health, it is called a complete protein.
