Protein is an essential macronutrient in the human diet. In addition to providing essential amino acids to the body, protein has also been linked to inducing the feeling of fullness and satiety. Different sources of protein are traditionally used in the human diet and offer varying amino acid composition. This book discusses the nutritional sources of protein, as well as its health benefits and intake recommendations.
