You might find this fact interesting Leo. Here is a quote from the book "Becoming Vegan".

"the amino acids from all animal protein is derived from plants, whether they originated from a cow that ate beans and grain, or from a fish that ate a smaller fish that ate seaweed. People often assume that plants are lacking in some amino acids because that is what they have been told for years. It comes as a surprise to some that plants are the source of all EAAs [essential amino acids]."
