Since each row is normalized to 200 calories, 5g of protein is what you would need in order to meet your daily protein requirement of 52g with a 2000 calorie diet. 5 to 10g of protein would be considered high. Over 10g would be considered a very high protein source, as this would get you to 100g+ of protein per day. As you can see, there are plenty of high protein choices available for vegans. Not all nuts were created equal: peanuts are relatively high in protein and pecans are relatively low.
