Q. Does the software differentiate between plant and animal protein?
A. ESHA software reports edible portion for all meat products, so the protein value that is reported for meat is the meat protein (ie: it does not contain protein from bone, tendons, etc. that are not consumed). The software tracks one protein field (total protein) and does not differentiate between animal protein and plant protein. MyPlates also report total protein and do not list the subgroup.
