I bought this large bag of soy chips recently. They are amazing!

The bag is 100 grams, 410 calories, and 26 grams of protein!

And only 10 grams of fat, no saturated fat!

I got honey BBQ, theyre awsome! Get them!

I'm not a HUGE fan of soy. Phytoestrogens. Your call.

Not too mention an incomplete protein profile which means it can't be made in to muscle tissue until it gets additional amino acids.

Hahha of course its not going to be my main source of protein, buts its good to know that when you have a snack that there is some benefit to it.

Wrong on so many levels.

It would appear that CrazyK hasn't kept up on the "protein combining" research.

How so?
Ive also learnt that soy doesnt contain all the essential amino acids.
Someone care to correct me?

There are very few truly incomplete proteins (gelatine would be an example). The vast majority contain all amino acids, it's simply the amount of them that is a concern.

In the case of soy it's low in methionine. Tests done on rats that conclude soy is a poor quality protein source have failed to take into account that rats, due to having fur, have a greater requirement for methionine than humans.

Furthermore, eating two low quality protein sources that contain complementary levels of amino acids results in a high quality protein source. I'm guessing your soy chips contain some kind of rice flour?

You shouldn't eat processed soy products.

Adding to thegimp's post, these complementary amino acids need not be consumed together - your body will manage even if you eat them in different meals.

1) Whats better for you when you want an occasional snack? A bag of potato chips or a bag of soy chips?

2) Its also made with potato flakes. Theyre baked not fried

If you like them they taste good and your still achieving your physique goals, then keep eating them, if it's ****ing with your goals, stop eating them!

Personally I just prefer a regular potato over chips or making baked homemade french fries to go along with some chicken or steak. Much more satisfying to me and makes for a good big muscle building meal! Especially that after workout meal where you can really put those extra carbs to use.

I'm not a chip fan, actually. I eat a few chips maybe once or twice a year, if I'm at a house party or something.

Now chocolate ...
