    Bridging Protein Gaps With Freeform Amino Acids


    I would like to get some opinions on my theories about protein consumption. My personal opinion is that alot of the protein we eat does not get absorbed because of incomplete amino acid chains. For example, most people eat alot of grains in their diet. Bread, rice, pasta, etc...and all provide incomplete amino acid profiles, specifically Lysine. I often hear it suggested that eating combinations of foods will solve this issue, which makes no sense to me. For example, if you eat meat with rice, the Lysine in meat may cover the gap in the rice...but then the meat would be short of Lysine! (does that make sense?) Basically you cannot get something from nothing. I think supplementation of Lysine anytime you consume grains is a wise move.

    Any comments?

    I don't think so. Supplementing with free forms aminos in this case would only be useful if consuming the same incomplete grains for a long period of time.
