There 20 different amino acids, 9 of which the body cannot produce on its own. These are called essential amino acids, and we need to eat them. In order to be considered “complete,” a protein must contain all nine of these essential amino acids in roughly equal amounts.
Most nutritionists believe that plant-based diets contain such a wide variety of amino acid profiles that vegans require very little effort to obtain them.
