Hi all,

I have read this in numerous sources on the internet....many from high renown nutrition experts.

"Protein

Avocados are a low protein food, having 1.3 percent protein in Florida varieties and 2.2 percent protein in those grown in California. Though avocados are low in protein, they have more protein than milk and more usable protein than a huge steak. Unlike a raw avocado, the protein in cooked meat is mostly unavailable to your liver, the organ that makes our body's protein. Various proteins will differ in type, gastric acidity and timing of secretions for digestion. For this reason and better digestion, you should not combine avocados with other proteins.
"

Now please could someone enlighten me, how is it possible that avo has more 'usable' protein than a steak. Even if its measured by weight, an entire avo maybe has 3g to 4g of protein, how is it possible that a 200g lean steak with over 30g protein has less usable protein than avo?

And seriously, just how much of the protein in the steak would actually become unusable once cooked....

Wow keep your underwear on ladies

I thought id put it out there as Ive read that in numerous sources. I am well aware of the quantities of protein in avo vs meat hence me asking as I have read it in numerous sources.

Now without developing a fanny rash, could someone knowledgeable at least comment on the idea of a certain amount of protein in meat becoming unusable (or denatured) once cooked? (if this is even the case...and please by all means, quote your sources ;)
