What is the biological value of proteins? Which protein sources have the best biological value?

The biological value of proteins is a scientific method of calculating the quality of proteins, taking into account the concentrations of the essential amino acids. Proteins with high amounts of essential amino acids present in the same proportions as in the body tissues have a high biological value. Proteins with low concentrations of essential amino acids or with essential amino acids in the wrong proportions will have a low biological value.

As far as my own pet dogs go I have done much the same and never bought a pedigree dog but just kept strays and ones that needed a home. I have always said though if I could choose a pedigree dog for myself it would be a Shiba Inu no doubt because they look just like little foxes.
