im sure most of you already know that the only foods with the 8 essential amino acids needed in proteins are only found in meat , dairy / poultry if you are eating a meal which does not contain either you have to mix them up to get all the amino acids .. example , bread + peanut butter , beans + rice , pasta + cheese what i was wanting to know though , is how do the ratios work ? say i eat 10g of a copmlete protein with a food that has 30 grams of incomplete protein .. how would the amino acids with the 10g be enough to absorb the 30g in the incomplete protein? will the body absorb it all ? or will it absorb only a certain ammount? if i ate 200 g of pasta then drank a small glass of milk later on , would the body absorb all the protein in the pasta??? is there some kind of ratio of proteins that needs to be taken into consideration? not to sure how to word this question , im sure someone there knows what i am talking about.
