    Below you can see the link to the Google Spreadsheet that I created containing 318 foods (as of 5th Sept. 2015) which shows the following:

    Column Title Meaning
    A P%Cal Rank Ranking of food by Protein Kcal / Total Cals (Highest is ranked 1st)
    B Food Food Name
    C Food Category 1 of 12 food categories
    D Kcal Caloric content of 100g of food (EU standard)
    E Protein Protein content per 100g of food (also doubles as a percentage)
    F Carb Carb content per 100g of food (also doubles as a percentage)
    G Fat Fat content per 100g of food (also doubles as a percentage)
    H Fiber Fiber content per 100g of food (also doubles as a percentage)
    I Grams Fiber/100kcal This is the fiber bang for your caloric buck information. Especially good for calorie restricted diets

    J Protein Quality This info is taken from the nutritiondata.self.com site. More info here: http://nutritiondata.self.com/help/analysis-help#protein-quality

    K Nutrient Completeness info
    This info is taken from the nutritiondata.self.com site. More info here: http://nutritiondata.self.com/help/analysis-help#nutrient-balance-indicator
    uvs366ipki5d.jpg

    L P%Cal Percentage of how many calories of protein as compared to the total calories of the food. In essence this is the reason this spreadsheet exists.

    M-U Hidden columns. They contain all the ranking of columns B-K above and are used to calculate the overall ranking of the foodlist.

    V Rank of Rankings Takes all the rankings above (M-U) and averages the rankings. Highest average ranking (lowest number) is the top food based on the above criteria (Seafood, tuna) and bottom has the lowest (Food, Chocolate Dark 45-59% cacao). It doesn't mean that the bottom ranked food is "bad", it just means that it's not best bank for the buck in regards to the above criteria.

    There you have it.
    Have fun browsing the list.

    PS If anyone wants to add more info, please let me know and I can provide you with editing privileges.

    This is such great information. Thanks

    @andrikosDE Not sure if you noticed this so thought I should alert you.

    OK, I know this is an antiquated post by now. But you know that if you save a copy of the spreadsheet into google drive I can see all your other sheets. I see some sort of Budget on Sheet 3, a sheet called "run", and a fourth sheet called "copy_20150904". Just letting you know that there is some personal information here.

    Time for a bump.
  • joinn68joinn68 Member Posts: 481 Member Member Posts: 481 Member
    Thanks @amusedmonkey for the bump.
    I am reading the list and remember that grains are a source of protein! What with trying to limit carbs - not on a low carb diet just trying to consume more protein proportionnally without eating meats - I completely forgot that gluten IS a protein!

    Another week, more protein questions on the site ==> another bump.

    IKR??? What's with that? I mean, awesome that people are paying attention to their protein intake, but there certainly seems to have been an upswing in posts about it lately.

    A new challenge just started that rewards you for hitting your protein goals. It probably has people thinking about.

    Ohhhh, that would explain it!

    No one reads the stickies. I turned one of mine into a Dwayne Johnson appreciation thread a couple of months ago and I've yet to have more than two comments about it. Maybe bumps will help, but probably not.

    Dang, I missed it! Guess I don't read the stickies, either. ;)

    But I did when I first joined. So good, so useful!
