Soy Versus Beef For Protein

You have plenty of food options for getting complete proteins including dairy, eggs, poultry, fish and beef. Then there’s soy. It’s one of the few vegetables that contain all of the essential amino acids critical for muscle growth. Let compare marcos using the USDA’s National Nutrient Database.
Based on a 100 gram serving, soy weighs in at 337 calories and packs an impressive 49.2 grams of protein with 35.9 grams of carbs. An equivalent 100 gram serving of strip steak amounts to 117 calories with 23 grams of protein and no carbs. Fat was about the same with 2.4 grams for soy and 2.7 for steak.
