Apart from featuring how much protein there is in a specific amount of food, protein charts vary in terms of other information given. The number of calories, carbohydrate count or amount of fat in a portion of food may also be listed.
Foods derived from meats, eggs, seafood, peas and beans are usually analyzed on protein charts. Other excellent sources of protein listed on these charts include poultry, processed soy products, nuts and seeds. All of the above belong to the Protein Foods Group as discussed on the USDA MyPlate website.
Vegans, who are more limited in consuming foods naturally high in protein, obtain it from other sources, such as brown rice, broccoli and wheat products.
