Industry Presented Webinar: A Tale of Two Proteins: Plant vs. Animal for Fitness

Sponsored by:   Egg Nutrition Center

There are different types of carbs, different types of fat, but not many people talk about the different types of protein vary. There’s been a lot of recent attention around plant-based proteins, but how do they differ from animal-based proteins and how do they impact health and physical performance? With the protein trend still going strong, it is likely that consumers and athletes will seek a deeper understanding of protein, beyond just how much they should eat.  This session will examine amino acids, explain how protein quality is determined, and look at differences in plant and animal proteins, including common misperceptions.  It will also provide practical recommendations for meeting clients’ dietary protein needs through foods.
