You are referring to a complete protein. Those are generally found in meat, fish, chicken, cheese, yogurt, milk and eggs. Usually, the proteins in plants are usually missing some essential amino acids and therefore, you must mix various plant proteins to get a complete protein. Essential amino acids are those that cannot be synthesized by humans and must be consumed in our diet. A complete protein has those in the correct proportion as well as all the other amino acids needed by the body. Essential amino acids are histidine, valine, tryptophan, threonine, phenylalanine, methionine, lysine, leucine and isoleucine.
