I need protein

Proteins are an absolutely irreplaceable nutritional factor, they are the main plastic material in the construction and renewal of all cells and tissues of the body, are indispensable in the immune status and energy balance. All enzymes that play a major role in metabolism are proteins. About 450 g of protein are involved in metabolism daily. About ¾ of them return again – to the synthesis of their own tissues and substances of protein nature, but ¼ part is lost during this exchange. It is this loss that determines the magnitude of a person’s need for protein replenishment.

The daily protein intake is 0.8 g per 1 kg of body weight, i.e. on average, it is from 50 to 120 g of protein per day. With an active lifestyle, it is necessary to consume 1-2.5 grams of protein per day per 1 kg of body weight. It is believed that people who are professionally involved in certain sports (bodybuilding, long-distance running) get a positive effect if they use an additional amount of protein. With a small sports load (swimming, aerobics), it is enough to use the daily protein intake. In this case, at least half of this daily allowance should be made up of complete proteins, which include all 9 essential amino acids. There is also an upper level – this is 2.5 g of protein per 1 kg of body weight – the body simply cannot absorb a larger amount, and undigested proteins are toxic. In addition, excessive consumption of proteins (especially of animal origin) causes a significant load on the liver, kidneys and metabolism in general.

A lack of protein in the diet is fraught with a lot more negative consequences. Unlike glucose and fat, a small reserve of protein is possible in the body, and if it is supplied with insufficient amounts of food, in a day the body will use protein from muscle tissue, thereby destroying it. Lack of protein leads to pathological conditions associated with hormonal imbalance, deficiency of enzymatic systems; food dystrophy develops, a violation of brain activity, a violation of the functions of other systems and organs. Protein deficiency adversely affects the body of children, they lag behind in physical and mental development.

Increased protein intake is needed by many consumer groups. These are primarily children, especially during periods of intensive growth, professional athletes and amateur athletes (see the article I am an athlete), postoperative patients during the rehabilitation period, as well as elderly people whose diet is low in protein.

Any source of protein has its drawbacks. For example, all types of animal meat and dairy products, as well as eggs, contain a rather large amount of low-useful saturated fats and cholesterol, the protein of cereal crops is mostly not complete, legumes are rich in high-grade protein, but contain many oligosugars, causing some discomfort in the digestive tract. That is why an ideal additional source of complete protein, in addition to the main diet, is isolated proteins (proteins) containing more than 90% protein and obtained by the methods of deep processing of raw materials.

Currently, the industry has mastered the commercial production of several types of isolated proteins from animal and vegetable raw materials. The main ones are sodium caseinate (the main protein of milk), gluten (wheat protein) and soy protein. All of them are almost complete proteins, which are very widely used in absolutely all sectors of the food industry. But competent consumers can certainly use these proteins to adjust their own diet, as well as the level of protein intake in the menu of their children and elderly parents. Protein can be added to any cereal, drink or cocktail. Protein shakes based on vegetable milk or juices with the addition of soft fruits (banana, kiwi, mango, apricot) or berries (strawberries, blueberries, blueberries) are especially good.

The following types of proteins are presented in our catalog:

Soy Protein “Jay”

Sunflower protein

Organic Hemp Protein

You should also pay special attention to such sources of high-grade soy protein, containing the minimum amount of fat, like all types of Tofu and all types of soy meat (Soy goulash, Soy minced meat and Soy schnitzel). They can not only diversify your diet, but also significantly enrich it with a complete protein.
