It is the lack of protein that causes a craving for sugar. And with out adequate protein your muscles can wear out much faster. I ride a heavy cargo bicycle for transportation and have not been eating 50 to 60 grams of protein, it started catching up with me. I ate meat for a while, and the pains subsided.
3 oz of meat has about 22 grams of protein but takes so much more energy to produce than Tempeh.
39.6g protein per 100g weight. Seems
to have the most protein.
16.6g @100g, but
the roasted beans are not very indigestible; they take some strong
teeth to chew.
(Cooked) 9.7g @ 100g is
good (pork 'n beans).
9g @ 100g with
1g protein per 12.9 calories is the easiest & best for home
7.9g @ 100g most
easy to ingest.
24.4g @ 100g is the best,
but hey have almost the same amount of fat.
- Soy Tempeh 18.5g @100g has the best all-round ingestability verses digestibility and the Protein to Calorie Ratio is better than most beans: 1g protein per 10.4 calories .
- Seitan 75 g @ 100g this beats every thing, (if you can make it with out much sodium. Seitan isn’t a complete protein on its own—it needs to be cooked in a soy sauce-rich broth to add gluten’s missing amino acid (lysine). )
- Textured Soy Protein 50 g protein @100g weight (not so ingestable)
