    I didn’t think that sounded right. Put it into myfitnesspal and 100 calories of steak came out to 15g protein and broccoli comes to 8g.

    Is there anything to be said about the bio-availability of these proteins? (no agenda to this question, I'm just curious)

    This image is completely BS.

    1 cup of raw broccoli has 30 calories and only 2.6g of protein. You would need to eat 3.3 cups of raw broccoli to make that 100 calorie count and that’s only 7.7g of protein. If you cook the broccoli it loses half of its nutritional content. So this image is BS in that the numbers aren’t even accurate.

    Now, looking at the cooked beef steak: a normal 4oz portion of cooked trimmed lean beef has just over 200 calories so a 2oz portion. Would have appx 100 calories. That 1/2 portion contains

    Tom F This is so misleading…
    In order to get the same amount of protein to a normal portion of cooked beef you would need to eat a few pounds of uncooked broccoli.
    1 cup of raw broccoli has 30 calories and only 2.6g of protein. You would need to eat 3.3 cups of raw broccoli to make that 100 calorie count and that's only 7.8g of protein. If you cook the broccoli it loses half of its nutritional content. So this image is BS in that the numbers aren't even accurate.

    In order to get the same amount of protein as 1/2 of a serving of steak, you would need to eat nearly 7 cups of raw broccoli.

    Vegan propaganda = fail.
