NutriBiotic Rice Protein is a great tasting vegetable protein made from non-genetically modified California grown brown rice. Free of the common food allergens normally associated with products such as soy, milk, egg, wheat and yeast.
Rice protein is suitable for use by those with food allergies and has even been tube feeding of infants, the elderly and the severely ill. It has a mild flavor similar to that of Cream of Rice cereal and may be used in beverages, sprinkled on cereals and yogurt, added to cooked dishes to boost the protein content without adding fat or a lot of calories. At about 58 calories per tablespoon (or 15 gram serving), rice protein is one of the lightest protein sources around. This highly soluble powdered formula mixes easily into water, juice or meals for an extra protein boost.
Although rice is a carbohydrate, all foods contain amino acids, which are the building blocks of what we collectively call protein. A unique process is used to isolate the protein from the carbohydrate portion of the rice, which results in an extensive amino acid profile that includes 19 amino acids including all 9 essential amino acids making a “complete” protein (see amino acid profile below). Chemical processing is avoided by using a purified water and natural enzyme procedure. NutriBiotic Rice Protein is free of the common food allergens normally associated with soy, milk and egg. proteins.
Directions for use: As a protein source, mix one or more servings into a glass of water or juice, or add to your favorite recipes. Use one to three times daily or as directed by a health-care practitioner.
