There are eight essential amino acids that we cannot manufacture in our own bodies. They occur in sources of "complete" protein in various proportions relative to the ideal for humans. By combining sources over a 24 hour period, the all of the essntial amino acids will be available.For a single source, eggs are the best in nature, corresponding 98% with the amino acid proportions that we need.Seems like I read that some amino acids are so out of balance that they don't count as protein at all. I think was said to be true of gelatin.
