The power of proteins
Protein as a macronutrient has a recent rise in popularity thanks to low-carbohydrate diets, weight loss and fitness trends. But the truth is that it has always been an essential and indispensable nutrient for our health.
Protein can be found in a wide variety of foods, from animal products such as meat, eggs and dairy products, to more affordable plant products such as quinoa, buckwheat, soybean and legumes. While most of these products are the main food category, the fact that they act as superfoods is indisputable.
