vegetarian protein, augmentable?

hello. I have read that soy protein is lower BV than animal protein sources because of a lack of Methionine.

Can we assume the same to be true for rice? If so, would taking a Methionine supplement with your rice/soy protein supplement make it better? Could it actually increase the BV if we took EAAs that the plant proteins are low in, in a pill form? Or could we even crush up the pills into powder, and drop it in our protein?

Im just trying to work with vegetarian protein here.

Comments, thoughts?

Thanks, Sam

soy is a complete protein, so no supplementation should be necessary. with other vegetable protein sources, combining at meals is not necessary as long as a variety of foods is consumed.

I agree it is a complete protein, no substitutes needed.
