Is there protein loss when meat is cooked? Thanks.

only if it is burned, charred, or overly fried
you always lose proteins.
but u really only need the amino acids. and you only lose those by burning as the doc said.
How do you lose protein.
I guess as long as you measure and count the cooked amounts then this wont effect your diet anyway.
u lose proteins cuz u denature them. they're not proteins anymore.
and if u dont denature them, ur stomach breaks them down into individual amino acids anyway. u never absorb a whole protein. only babies in a mother's stomach can intake entire proteins (i.e. antibodies).
