Why are plant-based proteins important?

Proteins are essential, both in human and animal diets. They are an important component of every cell in the body. Proteins contain essential amino acids which, after water, form the second-largest component of human muscles and other tissues, used to build and repair them.

Plant-based protein products can complement or be an alternative to animal proteins for consumers who seek to diversify their diets.
