Those from animals are sorta similar to the proteins in our bodies and are used more easily and rapidly. Those from plants, typically lack one of two essential amino acids and so have to properly combined in order to make up for the deficient amino acids.

Here are complementary protein groups with examples:
• Seeds – pumpkin (Egusi) seeds, sunflower…
