BBC Challenged over Protein used in Vegan Diet experiment

In the Truth About Food on BBC2 they fed elete athlete Colin Jackson a vegetarian diet and vegetarians meat and monitored the outcome. The trouble was they cheated - many foods from Vegan specialist Redwoods Foods have more protein than all the protein sources the BBC used - even the meat they fed to the vegetarians!

Shelled Hempseeds have over 30% protein , Redwoods mince has 25% Protein, some types of Quinoa are 20% protein.

Had meat lover Colin been fed some hemp and some nuts and seeds he may have become more powerfull not less.
