Top 10 Raw Protein Foods! by
Below is a list of some of the most highest concentrated raw foods
in assimiable proteins!
2. Goji Berries
4. Spirulian/Blue Green Algae
5. Pure Synergy
9. Greens and veggies
10. Sprouted Nuts and Seeds
1. Hemp seeds contain all 8 essential amino acids for adults,
plus three other amino acids that are considered essential for
children and infants. Almost two-thirds of hemp protein is made
up of edestin, a globulin protein found only in hemp seeds. This
makes hemp the superior source for this protein in the plant kingdom.
Edestin is a type of plant protein that is similar to protein
found in the human body, and thus is perfectly suited to aid in
meeting the body’s cellular needs such as DNA repair. Read
Did you know? Hemp Protein Powder is produced when whole
hemp seeds are cold-pressed to expel the oil, leaving behind a
dry “cake.” This cake is then milled at low temperatures
to remove some of the fiber and produce a concentrated form of
protein. Cool, huh?
Goji berries, sometimes called wolfberries, are perhaps the most
nutritionally rich fruit on the planet. Goji berries contain 18
kinds of amino acids (six times higher than bee pollen) and contain
all 8 essential amino acids (such as isoleucine and tryptophan).
Goji berries also contain up to 21 trace minerals (the main ones
being zinc, iron, copper, calcium, germanium, selenium, and phosphorus).
3. Sprouts are living foods, easy to digest and filled with enzymes,
proteins, complex carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, fiber,
vitamins, and minerals. Everything your body needs in a form that
your body can use! Sprouts are economical, easy to make and nutritious.
Sunflower, kamut, hemp, quinoa, and bean sprouts are some of highest
4. Spirulina is a blue-green algae containing complete, balanced
protein and a wide range of valuable nutrients. Spirulina is approximately
70% easily digestible protein. It contains 18 out of 22 amino
acids and all of the essential amino acids, making it a unique
vegetarian source of complete protein. Better yet, Spirulina protein
is 95% digestible compared to meat sources, which are often difficult
for the body to break down. In fact, beef protein is estimated
to be only 20% digestible. Spirulina is a wonderful way to consume
high quality protein that's easy on the body. It contains enzymes,
which naturally assist in the digestion process.
Pure Synergy is a remarkable nutritional supplement for your vitality,
health, and total well-being blending Nature's finest and most
potent superfoods -- algaes and organic green juices, freeze dried
herbs, oriental therapeutic mushrooms, plant enzymes and phytonutrients,
and natural antioxidants. Very high in protein!
Did you know? Pure Synergy ingredients are organically
grown or wild crafted, seasonally harvested, fresh freeze-dried/
cold dried or cold ground, tested over 200 times for purity and
packaged in recyclable glass.
Maca has an amazing nutritional value. Its high protein content
excels those from other plants. For example it has 5 times more
proteins and 4 times more fibre than the potato, having less fat.
It has an excellent 0.76 ratio of saturated to unsaturated fat
(40.1% saturated fats, 52.7% unsaturated fat). Maca contains two
of three essential fatty acids (oleic and linoleic). It also has
a surprising amino acids profile, a total of 18 amino acids, including
7 of the 9 essential amino acids. Vitamin and mineral levels are
considerable and in some cases they represent 100% of the recommended
Avocados are bursting with nutrients--vitamins, A, B-complex,
C, E, H, K, and folic acid, plus the minerals magnesium, copper,
iron, calcium, potassium and many other trace elements. Avocados
provide all of the essential amino acids (those that must be provided
by our diet), with 18 amino acids in all, plus 7 fatty acids,
including Omega 3 and 6. Avocados contain more protein than cow’s
milk, about 2% per edible portion. Since rapidly growing nursing
infants obtain no more than 2% protein from mother’s milk,
we can safely assume that children and adults do not regularly
require foods richer in protein than avocado. Our bodies recycle
approximately 80% of our protein; cooked protein is denatured
and largely unusable, thus our protein need is far lower than
what is taught by conventional dietetics. A small avocado will
provide more usable protein then a huge steak because cooked protein
in meat is deranged and mostly unavailable to our liver, the organ
which makes all of our body’s protein.

8. Figs are loaded with nutritious protein, carbohydrates, essential
minerals and vitamins.
Did you know? The actual edible "fruit" of
a fig tree is called a syconium--a hollow structure lined on the
inside with hundreds of tiny unisexual flowers.
9. Greens are high in protein, especially wild greens. Eating
blending salads and juicing green veggies makes amino acids and
other nutrients more assimiable.
10. Most nuts contain complete and high-grade proteins. They rank
and even surpass, flesh foods in the quantity of their proteins.
Nut proteins are also free from pathogenic bacterial or parasitical
contamination. Almonds - their proteins have a high biological
value and some nutritionists say they are an excellent substitute
for meat; Almonds have 19% of protein. Coconut - is an excellent
and complete food; Coconut has 6% of protein.
