READING: As a class read page 35 titled 'Protein' and then copy the board notes below.
NOTES TO COPY: Protein
When you digest protein, it’s broken down into its component amino acids. Your body is not able to store amino acids and they therefore must be continually obtained from our diets.
There are 9 essential amino acids. They are classified as 'essential' because it is essential for us to EAT THEM because we cannot produce them ourselves. The foods that contain all 9 essential amino acids are called complete proteins.
Our bodies use 11 other amino acids as well, but we DO NOT need to obtain them from the food we eat because our bodies naturally produce them. For this reason, they are referred to as non essential amino acids. Foods that do not contain all 9 essential amino acids are called incomplete proteins.
