Incomplete proteins don’t have all or adequate amounts of EAAs (Essential Amino Acids) and generally include vegetables, beans, legumes, fruits, grains, seeds, and nuts. Most vegetable-source proteins are extremely low in protein and contain significant amounts of carbohydrates and fats. Soy has an impressive amino acids profile, but is controversial as a health food due to its estrogen-mimicking effects and because it contains anti-digestion factors, including an enzyme inhibitor that blocks the action of trypsin and other enzymes needed for protein digestion. Fermented non-GMO soy products, such as tempi, miso, and soy sauces, help overcome the digestive issues related to soy and can be a healthy addition to one’s diet. It is important to note that the vast majority of soy produced in the world today is genetically modified (GMO) and should be avoided.
