Proteins from plants are as nutritious as animal proteins. A normal diet should contain 15-20% of protein and should not exceed 20 percent as suggested by new researches. Proteins are made of essential and non-essential amino acids. Protein foods contribute 4 calories of every gram consumed by the body.

The right combination of essential amino acids as per the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) 1989 is: Isoleucine (10 mg), Lysine (12mg), Leucine (14 mg), Phenylalanine (14 mg), Methionine (13 mg), Threonine (7mg), Valine (10 mg) and Tryptophan (3.5 mg).

These are the amino acids which the body needs but cannot make them and are thus only made available to the body from foods taken in comprising of these amino acids. And the protein needed by an infant is Histidine (28 mg). These amounts of proteins are taken in accordance with the body weight, per kilogram of it per day, by the body.
