What Percent of Protein in Nuts "Count"?

jon44 | Aug 8, 2012 07:22 AM

I've read in various sources that only a certain percent of the protein in nuts and vegetables is absorbed by your body, even in the best of circumstances (something to do with it being bound up in a vegetable fiber matrix.).

Can anyone point to data saying what percent this is?
