In order to be classified as a complete protein, a certain food must contain all the essential amino acids necessary for human consumption. Spinach, oats, beans, etc. do NOT contain all the essential amino acids, and therefore do not qualify as complete proteins.

I was sure most fruits had a negligible amount of protein, be it complete or not.Originally Posted by veg*nrunner
hehe, im going to school to become a registered dietitian. actually most plants/legumes/nuts are complete protein although there are exceptions. right now i cant really think of any that arent complete. every single fruit ive come across isnt a complete protein though
