What is Vegan protein?

One of the most commonly asked questions, when people are considering a vegan lifestyle, is "Can I get enough protein from a vegan diet?"

According to the British Nutrition Foundation, protein is a macronutrient made up of amino acids. It is essential for the growth and repair of the body, allowing for the maintenance of good health.

Protein foods break down into 22 naturally occurring amino acids, which are known as the building blocks of protein. Of these, nine are known as essential amino acids, which means we must get them from food, as the body cannot make them itself.
