Protein Intake Calculator
During digestion in the stomach, proteins are broken down into tinier bits by enzymes known as proteases into smaller polypeptides; the purpose is to provide amino acids for our body. Protein consist of 16.8 kilojoules or 4 calories per gram. These are important especially for children growing up and their development, during the pregnancy period of the woman or the breast feeding period and more importantly for men who want to enhance their physical activities, muscular mass and body structure.
