Diet & Nutrition > Foods > Protein

Proteins are essential nutrients for the human body

Proteins are one of the building blocks of body tissue, and it can also serve as a fuel source.

Protein requirements are complicated because the amount we need changes with age and our protein needs also change according to our lifestyle and activities, but a general rule of thumb (approximate calculation) is that:

Infants require about 10 grams a day.
Teenage boys need about 52 grams a day.
Teenage girls and women need about 46 grams a day.
Adult men need about 56 grams a day.

Animal protein

Although there are no nutrients in animal food that cannot be found in the plant world uncooked meat, fish, eggs and dairy products are not harmful to the body. The problem with cooked animal protein is that it is a pre-formed protein chain of amino acids that are then brought to high temperatures during the cooking process.

The higher the temperature and the longer the animal protein is cooked at these temperatures, the more harmful the animal protein becomes to our health. Although it is not desirable, exposing plant proteins (unstructured amino acids) to high temperatures does not have the same deleterious effects on our health.
