what is the difference between animal and vegetable protein?

Jan 5th, 2015

Animal based proteins are much more similar to our proteins, thus are used more readily and rapidly than plant proteins. In animal based proteins, ‘substrate’ amino acids are more readily available for our own protein synthesizing reactions which allows them to operate at full tilt.

On the other hand, animal proteins have a higher concentration of sulphur containing amino acids that get metabolized to acid-generating metabolites. As a result, a slightly lower physiological pH must be corrected and buffers like calcium are used to attenuate these adverse acid effects–to the disadvantage of the host.

Plant proteins, however, are somewhat compromised by their limitation of one or more amino acids. Thus, people on vegetarian diets must consume extra vitamins, for example, B12.
