Soya bean has the highest protein content amongst plant products. It has 43 percent protein. It is the only vegetable food that contains all 8 essential amino acids. The World Health Organization (WH0) and the US Food and Drug administration use an alternative method for evaluating protein quality called the protein digestibility corrected amino acid score (PDCAAS). The PDCAAS of soy protein isolate is 1.0 which makes soya protein equivalent to animal protein in quality and higher than other plant protein foods.
