It is really important to find source materials rather than 'blogging for profit' articles when planning a healthy diet ...
"vegetarian foods are not a great source of protein."
I'm not a vegetarian, but the 2 most concentrated forms of protein in my kitchen are both vegetarian:
Textured soya protein: 50% protein
Wheat gluten: 80% protein.
Some conclusions from a scientific study
vegetable-based meat substitutes might be generally accepted as meat
alternatives for individuals on special diets.
The type of protein used
to manufacture these products determines the total content of purines,
which is relatively higher in the case of mycoprotein or soybean
protein, while appearing lower in wheat protein and egg white-based
These are therefore more suitable for dietary considerations
in a low-purine diet for hyperuricaemic subjects.
If you have been misled by 'advice' on the internet, social media is a powerful tool for alerting others to the danger.
