A proteinaceous material is any material, which has a protein base. Materials containing a protein base include animal glue, casein and soya.

Protein is required for a good diet and is one of the five kingdoms and can be obtained from meat, fish, eggs, milk and legumes. Protein is essential for the growth and repair of tissue. All living cells are largely made up of protein as many of their substances like, hormones, antibodies and enzymes are created from it and of course, their muscles also completely depends on it. Enzymes are used as catalysts to speed up the rate of a chemical reaction, hormones send chemical messages and antibodies bind to foreign particles as an immune response. Haemoglobin is also formed by protein, and these, from the respiratory organs carry round oxygen in the blood to other parts of the body, mainly to the tissues where oxygen is released to burn nutrients. This subsequently provides energy to complete actions (i.e. Move). Carbon dioxide is then collected, which is taken back to the respiratory organs.

You can also get structural proteins, which are used to keep the structure of the cells within an organism intact. Transport proteins help carry important materials around the organism.

Many people choose to consume protein shakes to repair the micro tears (tiny tears apparent in the muscle tissue, caused by frequent and forceful tension of the muscle during exercise) in the muscle. Also, in solid food it takes longer to break down protein in order to send them to the muscles, whereas protein shakes only takes 30 minutes to reach the muscles.

Protein is an -amine material. To produce protein, the chemical mechanism "nucleophilic substitution" occurs in which an alkane will react with ammonia. For example, methanol can react with ammonia to form methylamine, a protein and water. A protein is actually made up of amino acids, and this is where the 'amine' comes from.
