PROTEIN BIO AVAILABILITY

This Cinnamon Roll Protein Smoothie tastes like a Cinnabon cinnamon roll but it's good for you--perfect for that post workout treat!

Do we adsorb the same amount of protein For the amount of protein we consume, for example if we consume 10 gram protein then it is not sure that our body will adsorb 10 gm protein, the adsorption of protein in our body depends upon bio availability of the protein  source.

Bio availability is the percentage of protein digested in our body. The protein from animal source has more bio availability then plant source. It can be measured on a scale of 0%-100%

As we can see from above table the whey has more bio availability and therefore is used as foremost protein source as compared to plant protein
