Sometimes my diet includes soups made with protein-rich ingredients such as beef or fish. Question: because soup is boiled in its preparation, is the protein in the beef or fish nutritionally worthless because it is broken down, or is the nutritional integrity of the protein maintained? :confused:

Not most of it. Meat is meat. Some of the protien is destroyed during cooking, but we are not savages. We don't eat slabs of frozen raw meat =). So enjoy!

I don't know how I got that idea meat would be useless after hours of boiling -- maybe because it turned into a slab of tasteless dry tard. Oh, but the soup would taste good!
