Are you vegan/vegetarian or lactose intolerant? All of the gluten-free holiday recipes featured in this month's newsletter include brown rice protein. Often, in health circles, you hear a lot about whey protein, but brown rice protein can be an excellent alternative if you are vegetarian or unable to consume dairy/lactose products. Both supplements contain nearly an identical amount of protein. The only major difference is that rice protein is higher in carbohydrates.
Progressive Organics Brown Rice Protein is made entirely from certified organic, non-GMO ingredients. The protein is derived from sprouted brown rice. Typical rice proteins are made from white rice, which offers an incomplete amino acid profile and a poor protein efficiency ratio.
Sprouted brown rice, on the other hand, has a complete array of amino acids, which are essential for the maintenance of good health. It also has a net protein utilization score of 98.8% and is vegan, hypoallergenic and gluten free.
