Protein is a vital macronutrient – essential for the sustenance of life, and next to water, makes up the largest portion of our body weight. The liver manufactures about 80% of these amino acids, but the remaining 20% of such amino acids must be supplied directly by diet, and these amino acids are referred to as the essential amino acids.
Unlike fat and carbohydrates that can be stored in the body and used as required, protein cannot be stored; so it is vital to consume the appropriate amount of protein on a daily basis.
Protein quality is dependent on having all the essential amino acids in the proper proportion. If one or more amino acids are not present in sufficient amounts, the protein in a food is considered incomplete. Diets that are very low in protein or that are very restrictive in the types of protein consumed (e.g., vegetarian diets) may not provide complete protein.
Our bodies use amino acids in a specific ratio to each other. If we don't get enough of one of them to match with the others, they can only be utilised at the level of the lowest (limiting) one.
These are called limiting amino acids, because if our diet is deficient in one of them, this will limit the usefulness of the others, even if they are eaten in large quantities.
The amount of protein you need in your diet depends on your gender, weight, age and health. The recommended requirement is between 800mg/kg – 1800mg/kg depending on activity levels (intense resistance and endurance athletes need 1300-1800mg/kg).
As a rough guide, the recommended dietary intake (RDI) for protein (measured in grams per kilogram of bodyweight) is 0.8g/kg. So, a 70kg person needs 56g of protein (0.8 x 70) per day.
Add 25g into a shaker jar or blender with 250ml of cold water. Shake vigorously until smooth and frothy. One 25g serving of Complete Protein Powder provides 19.7g of complete protein and 2/3 of the daily Essential Amino Acid requirement for a 70kg person!

Essential Vegan Protein Powder Blends well with water, juice, any milk of choice and yoghurt, or it can be added to your smoothie. It can also be mixed into your homemade energy bars, balls, muffins, pancakes, desserts, and baked goods and stirred into hot cereals after cooking. While you can add this powder to a variety of recipes, raw food enthusiasts will want to avoid cooking or heating it in order to preserve its nutritional value.
