Why would you consume protein that come from a plant?

My 2 cents. There are many research that talks about how soy protein and all isn't healthy for you and there are also alot of research on how a lot of meat consumption is bad for you. There's different sides to both views. I know guys who consume soy and are still big and strong and vice versa. I have no problem with soy, it's an individual choice.

I think it tastes bad. Therefore, I don't eat it.

It is included in the same food group as squash, zucchini, raw spinach, and that horrible red-powder candy stuff, as far as I'm concerned. haha

There's an interesting bit of Muscle, Smoke & Mirrors where the authour describes how the makers of early protein powders found it hard to come up with a digestible formula, much easier with milk proteins.

I dunno, I'm no soy hater. I'm just generally scornful of protein powders. Many people consume them with dextrose, and are careful to get animal fats from meat. So with milk protein powders... we pay the protein powder company to remove the water, remove the carbohydrates, remove the fats... then we add water, add carbs, have some animal fats from steak and...

... wouldn't it be easier to just drink the damn milk?

Or in your case, just eat the damn tofu?

Either way, if you're scarfing down all that protein powder, someone open a damn window in this gym.

^Not to mention, straight statistical facts concerning meat overconsumption and bowel/colon cancer, leading to early death... is it just me, or are people generally forgetting that cave men didn't live all that long??

I have no idea what that is, but I agree - it don't taste that great. Neither does broccoli and cauliflower, but these things are (at least, this month) still considered good for you. Sometimes it's a paradox.

This is especially poignant, as I do not suffer flatulence from taking soy, extreme or mild... at least, no more so than anyone with a typical high protein diet.
I can take whey, and fart all day, and shit water too. Soy? Nothing. Just solid muscle gains.
Go figure.

I love it when white americans lecture on the eating habits of other cultures. It convinces me I should ignore them.
Enerex.ca | Soy Protein V Hemp Protein
Quote:
Traditionally, Protein Efficiency Ratio (PER) was used to evaluate the quality of proteins. The PER method reflects the amino acid requirements of young growing rats, and not humans. A report was published in 1991, by the Food and Agricultural Organization/World Health Organization (FAO/ WHO) Joint Expert Consultation which called for a more acceptable and validated procedure for protein quality evaluation. The recommended method, called Protein Digestibility-Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS), was adopted by regulatory bodies in most countries including the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for protein quality evaluation and nutrition labeling purposes for products intended for children over the age of two and adults.

The PDCAAS method is based on an amino acid scoring method, comparing the amino acid profile of the test protein food to the FAO/WHO two- to five-year-old amino acid pattern. The two- to five-year-old pattern is used because it exceeds the amino acid requirement patterns of older children and adults. The most limiting amino acid is used to determine the uncorrected amino acid score and that number multiplied by the food's digestibility is the PDCAAS. Using this method, Isolated Soy Proteins have the highest obtainable score (1.0) for calculating the corrected protein value. No protein can have a PDCAAS greater than 1.0. Soy Proteins are highly digestible, complete proteins containing all the essential amino acids in the reference pattern in the correct proportion. By contrast, Hemp protein scores very low on the PDCAAS with a value of less than .5 and with 5 essential amino acids below the minimum reference pattern.

Some info on Mary Enig PHd.

Mary Enig was a lone whistle blower drawing attention to the dangers of trans fats during the late 1970s and 1980s. It is only now that her research findings are gaining acceptance.
