I have read in various places that black-beans/beans + brown-rice/rice complement the aminoacids (incomplete protein) each contains to give a complete protein.<br><br>
My question is how many grams of complete protein are contained in a dish composed of 100 grams of black beans + 100 grams of brown rice?<br><br>
100 grams of black beans have about 24 grams of protein and 100 grams of brown rice about 8 grams of protein, but adding them together doesnt give the amount of complete protein, cause they also contain non-essential aminoacids etc.<br><br>
It would be nice if someone knew the answer.<br><br>
Thanks in advance!

The best website I know of is Nutritional Data. I don't know all the facts, but maybe you can figure them out from their data.<br><br>

Just so you know, you don't have to eat them together to get the complete protein. That myth was debunked awhile ago.

Yeah i know. I just have to have all aminoacids in my system at the end of the day.<br>
The thing is i have a specific protein goal everday (151g of complete protein) cause i try to do some bodybuilding, and so i need to know where i am at.<br>
For example if i get from rice + beans 10g of protein and i think i have 30g so i add it this way, i will be everyday very far from my protein goal so its hard to gain muscle and its ineffective.

Exceptional site man. Just what i needed. It analyses how many miligrams of each aminoacid are contained in 100g of brown rice, so i can calculate a mix of brown rice and beans how many aminoacids contain together and come up with how many grams of complete protein.
