Protein was an organic chemical compound. It was a food source for many types of life forms.
On Necros, Davros produced protein from the bodies preserved in Tranquil Repose and sold it across the galaxy as food. After Davros was arrested by the Renegade Daleks, the Sixth Doctor suggested that the inhabitants cultivate the weed plant for protein. (TV: Revelation of the Daleks)
Daleks fed on protein, occasionally harvesting it from their victims. Each Dalek was equipped with internal feeding tubes leading to an organic refuse disposal. While miniaturised inside a Dalek, the Twelfth Doctor revealed this process to Clara Oswald and a Combined Galactic Resistance squad after one of their own had been "hoovered" by a Dalek antibody, grimly pointing out that his remains constituted the top layer of the pool of liquified protein they had landed in.
