Protein is a hot topic when it comes to food. It often gets associated with high level athletes or praised by those looking to lose weight. On the other end of the spectrum, it often gets vilified by some who advocate for strict plant-based diets.
But the reality is, protein is absolutely essential for human health, and it is estimated that a large portion of the population are deficient. In fact, The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations estimated that approximately one billion people worldwide have inadequate protein intake which contributes to impaired growth and suboptimal health.
That estimate might seem high, given that it includes approximately one-seventh of the world’s population, but actually, it is likely understated. As we will discuss, new research is showing that the benchmarks on which these estimates are based – recommended daily intakes or dietary reference intakes established by government organizations – are set far too low for most individuals.
The truth is, protein deficiency isn’t a condition confined only to third world countries. It is becoming increasingly common among the general population. This is due in part to an increase in processed, nutrient-devoid food that consists primarily of refined carbohydrates and fills a large portion of calories for the day. But it is also due to an increase in certain disease conditions that impair the body’s ability to absorb protein.
