    soy and protein requirements


    i stumbled across a product called 'soy crunch'..

    Its nutritional content is something like the following:

    per 100g

    375 cals, 50P/30C/2F

    i have read that not all protein is equal. ie some people dont include the protein from oats when calculating their daily protein requirements...

    so im just wandernig... is protein from soy as good as say protein from chicken/meat/fish/cottage cheese?

    Thanks

    NO! Soy protein has a lower biological value than meat, eggs, whey, etc... It also has some estrogenic properties, not good if you are trying to build muscle. There is a lot of conflicting evidence on this subject, but I would just stay away from anything soy based.
