Foods Highest in protein

List of High Protein Foods

These foods have the highest protein content value per unit. This is an excellent reference to find out which foods are rich in protein as an alternate to the plain chicken breast and eggs. If you are unclear of exactly how protein affects your body, please review the protein page. Remember that not all proteins are made equal. Some foods contain 'imcomplete' proteins which do not absorb easily into your body because not all the amino acids are present.
