Your DI for protein

Protein is used in both functional and structural activities by the body. In the form of enzymes and hormones, it works with the body's defence mechanisms, carries substances around the body and contributes to the structure of muscles and skin.

Excellent sources of protein are fish, meat, chicken, eggs, milk, cheese and yoghurt. Legumes - soybeans, baked beans, kidney beans, chickpeas and lentils - nuts and seeds are good sources of protein. Grain-based foods - bread, cereal, rice, pasta - also contribute some protein to the diet.

Based on the 8700kJ average adult diet, the daily intake for protein is 50g.
