Rice protein is a natural tasting grain protein derived from non-genetically modified grown brown rice. Free of the common food allergens sometimes associated with products such as soy, milk, egg, wheat & yeast, this highly soluble powdered formula mixes easily into water, juice or meals for an extra protein boost. Chemical processing is avoided by using a purified water & natural enzyme procedure. Rice protein is a mostly complete protein source which contains all the essential amino acids & nonessential amino acids, however is slightly lower in lysine. However, some commercial rice protein powders tend to fortify with additional amino acids to ensure a complete and balanced protein profile. Some other Rice Protein formulation add in additional Pea Protein as they are complementary. That is, Rice Protein’s deficiencies are corrected for with Pea Protein and vice versa1. Rice Protein is also hypoallergenic, making it suitable for a wide range of users, & is particularly popular with vegans. Rice Protein pairs well with other supplements such as plant derived BCAA supplements and a daily multi.
