    This is something that has confused me for sometime. Seems everybody has different values for different foods. According to www.calorieking.com a 5oz Chicken breast has 43 grams of protein. Yet I see people often giving different values... what gives here?

    After whey protien eggs have the highest BV. Infact the BV is based off of eggs. See below



    Biological Value

    The Biological Value (BV) is a scale of measurement used to determine what percentage of a given nutrient source is utilized by the body. The scale is most frequently applied to protein sources, particularly whey protein. Biological Value is derived from providing a measure intake of protein, then determining the nitrogen uptake versus nitrogen excretion. The theoretical highest BV of any food source is 100%. In short - BV refers to how well and how quickly your body can actually use the protein you consume.

    Below is a list of various sources of protein and their respective ratings.


    Protein Ratings FOOD PROTEIN RATING
    Eggs (whole) 100
    Eggs (whites) 88
    Chicken / Turkey 79
    Fish 70
    Lean Beef 69
    Cow's Milk 60
    Unpolished Rice 59
    Brown Rice 57
    White Rice 56
    Peanuts 55
    Peas 55
    Whole Wheat 49
    Soy beans 47
    Whole-grain Wheat 44
    Peanuts 43
    Corn 36
    Dry Beans 34
    White Potato 34

    As far as sources of protein created in the lab are concerned, here is a short list of some protein sources you can find in supplements common today. See how they compare to the natural sources listed above:


    Protein Ratings PROTEIN SUPPLEMENT PROTEIN RATING
    Whey Protein Isolate 159
    Whey Protein Concentrate 104
    Casein 77
    Soy 74

    Its not so much what has the most protien, but what has the most protien taht your body can ustilize. Hence the BV measurement for protien.
