So, how do you decide which high protein foods are the best? Simple. You see how much protein the body can absorb from that food. This is called ‘Biological Value’ or BV for short. Every protein food has a BV, each score is out of 100 and the higher the score the better. So, lets see which ones rank the highest.
1. Whole Eggs
Eggs contain approximately 7 grams of protein per medium egg. Eggs can also increase HDL (good) cholesterol levels and lower LDL (bad) levels, resulting in decreased blood pressure – contrary to the belief that they raise bad cholesterol. Eggs are also packed with vitamins and minerals which add to their health benefits.
