High Protein Foods For Vegetarians

Proteins, an essential nutrient for the human body. They are one of the building blocks of human body, which serve as a fuel also. We can see plenty of Non-veg protein foods but vegetarians always have question that do we have high protein foods? Obviously yes, nature gives us everything. We have seen high protein percentage in dairy products but they are loaded with extra fat and carbs also but today we shall move to other veg-protein sources with low fat percentage.


>Soy Bean and Processed Soy Supplement: Soy is the first known Non-processed beans with higher protein percentage. You can choose soy supplement as powder where isolate soy can give you upto 90 percent protein by weight.

>Whey Protein: Whey is also a veg protein supplement which is developed from cheese. It is basically found in three forms concentrate, isolate, hydrolysate. Most popular whey protein form is isolate. It can also give you upto 90 percent protein by weight in it's purest form.

>Non fat mozzarella cheese: Non fat mozzarella cheese is a veg protein food which gives you upto 33 gram of protein per 100 gram. Reduced-fat mozzarella cheese can be part of a healthy weight-loss diet, especially when used to replace whole-milk cheeses.
    NOTE: Eating too much cheese may be harmful to your health. Mozzarella cheeses, even reduced-fat varieties, contain saturated fat and sodium.

>Nuts(Walnuts, Peanuts, Almonds, Pistachio, Cashew): Nutritious food list can't be prepared without nuts, nuts have everything from heart-healthy fats, protein, vitamins to minerals. Nuts offer you high protein ranging from 16- 24 gram protein per 100 gram.
