Essential amino acids

Organic substances which are the building blocks of proteins and are necessary for growth and metabolism of food. They are called essential because they must be obtained from foods as they cannot be manufactured by the body. Several important protein foods, such as milk, cheese, eggs and meat, contain all the amino acids considered essential.

Vegans can get essential amino acids through a plant based diet. See more information here.
