Default Protein in carb sources

When counting protein in a meal do you include the protein that is in your carb source (e.g., protein in bread, oats,pasta, etc.) ?

Generally, two exceptions:

1) If you're eating a weird vegan diet and eating lots of "incomplete proteins" then you might have an issue.
2) If you just don't want to screw with tracking everything (you're not using software that does it all automatically)

I'm not a vegan nor a vegetarian, I'm currently on 350 g/d of carbs, mostly oats and oats have about 15 g of protein per 100 g. I never eat oats only meal, I put oat flakes in milk and whey shakes.

laziness?

I'm not really tracking calories right now, but I'm trying to eat a lot of protein. So I'll guesstimate that the chicken breast I'm eating has 40g of protein, but I'll ignore the bread because I'm too lazy.

I too wonder if we should count it for it's full amount, since it's absorption is lower and i'd imagine a too unbalanced AA profile would cause part of it to be burnt for glucose, but idk

I've read almost everything and there is nothing specific about "counting protein from carb sources" except this :

Does Protein Quality Matter?

Which brings me to my major commentary about the issue of protein quality: I consider it essentially irrelevant. I noted above that BV, for example, is measured at very low levels of protein intake and this tends to hold true for many of the other methods. Protein quality is measured under conditions of low intake because the primary application of protein quality has to do with ensuring adequate nutrition for people who donít have enough food. Which means that it stops having much relevance at high intakes.


Vegetable source proteins also have their own benefits, the fats in nuts are excellent, the fiber content of beans is important to protein nutrition; thatís along with being a decent source of quality protein. Nuts seem to blunt appetite and might be useful for individuals involved in active fat loss. In combination with other high quality sources, vegetable source proteins can add both protein and other important nutrients to the diet.
