  • High-protein diet

    serch.it?q=High-protein-diet

    Examples of high-protein foods are tofu (shown above), dairy products, fish, and meat. A high-protein diet is low in fat or carbohydrate consumption, and is not the same as a low-carbohydrate diet which may not be food-energy–controlled and may include fat. Example foods in a high-protein diet include lean beef, chicken or poultry, pork, salmon and tuna, eggs, and soy. A diet is considered "high in protein" if daily protein consumption exceeds 15% of total energy intake.

  • List of foods by protein content

    serch.it?q=List-of-foods-by-protein-content

    Below is a list of protein content in foods, organised by food group and given in measurements of grams of protein per 100 grams of food portion. Most natural foods are composed largely of water. The reduction of water content has the greatest effect of increasing protein as a proportion of the overall mass of the foodstuff in question. It is to be noted that not all protein is equally digestible. Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS) is a method of evaluating the protein quality based on the amino acid requirements of humans.

  • Low-protein diet

    serch.it?q=Low-protein-diet

    A low-protein diet is a diet in which people reduce their intake of protein. A low-protein diet is prescribed for those with inherited metabolic disorders, such as Phenylketonuria and Homocystinuria and reduced protein levels have been used by people with kidney or liver disease. Low protein consumption appears to reduce the risk of bone breakage, presumably through changes in calcium homeostasis. Consequently, there is no uniform definition of what constitutes low-protein, because the amount and composition of protein for an individual suffering from phenylketonuria would differ substantially from one suffering homocystinuria. The amount used by those with liver disease would still result in individuals being in nitrogen balance. Amino acids that are excess to requirement cannot be stored, but must be modified by deamination (removal of the amine group). As this occurs in the liver and kidneys, some individuals with damaged livers or kidneys may be advised to eat less protein. Due to the sulphur content of the amino acids methionine and cysteine, excess of these amino acids leads to the production of acid through sulphate ions.
