Low Temperature Enzyme Process
The whole brown rice is first ground into a fine flour. Pure filtered water is then added, forming a thick slurry (called liquefaction) Natural enzymes are added in at different stages to break down and separate the carbohydrate and fiber from the protein portion of the whole grain. All processing temperatures are kept below 90 degrees F. The low temperature and chemical free processing prevents denaturing of the amino acids. The final stage involves filtering, drying and low temperature milling.
NutriBiotic Rice Protein is free of the common food allergens normally associated with soy, milk and egg proteins. GMO & GLUTEN FREE!

NutriBiotic Rice Protein Frequently Asked Questions
Why would I want to use rice protein?
NutriBiotic Organic Rice Protein is an excellent source of vegan protein. Most people are familiar with soy and whey protein, and while they each provide sound nutrition, rice protein offers additional benefits. Whey protein comes from milk, and some people either cannot or do not wish to use animal-based protein. Soy protein often is difficult for people to digest and may pose allergy risks. NutriBiotic Organic Rice Protein offers an alternative to soy without the animal products of whey. And, rice protein is utilized more efficiently by the body than soy. Rice protein is suitable for use by those with food allergies. It has a mild flavor similar to that of Cream of Rice cereal and may be used in beverages, sprinkled on cereals and yogurt, and added to cooked dishes to boost the protein content without adding a lot of fat or calories.
Rice is a carbohydrate. How do you get protein from it?
All foods contain amino acids, which are the building blocks of what they collectively call protein. For instance, broccoli contains protein, as do all fruits and vegetables and grain products. NutriBiotic's uses a unique process that allows us to isolate the protein from the carbohydrate portion of the rice. The end result is an extensive amino acid profile that includes 19 amino acids including all 9 essential amino acids.
Does that mean the rice protein is chemically derived? I'm chemically intolerant and have to avoid food additives.
NutriBiotic Rice Protein is not chemically processed. They use organic plant enzymes that are GMO free to break down and digest the carbohydrate portion of the rice, leaving behind the protein. Their method of extraction leaves a very pure protein, free of additives or chemicals that can cause sensitivities.
Who certifies the Organic Rice Protein is organic?
NutriBiotic Organic Rice Protein is USDA Organic and is certified organic by CCOF.
Is the Organic Rice Protein Kosher?
NutriBiotic Organic Rice Protein is Certified Kosher.
I noticed your label gives a standard nutritional breakdown, which includes carbohydrate. What form is this carbohydrate in, and why is it there if I am buying rice protein?
The carbohydrate in the Rice Protein is a complex carbohydrate, a natural component of the product. This amount is very minimal. No sugars have been added.
Is the Organic Rice Protein considered a complete protein?
The term "complete protein" refers to a source of protein that contains all nine essential amino acids in adequate proportions. NutriBiotic Organic Rice Protein contains these nine amino acids, plus many other nonessential amino acids, but does not meet the required proportions of Lysine or Histidine. All of the amino acids in NutriBiotic's Rice Protein are naturally occurring components of the rice. They have added nothing to their product. Persons on restrictive diets would do well to consult their health care practitioner or nutritionist before adopting or rejecting the use of Rice Protein. NutriBiotics cannot recommend the use of their product to treat conditions other than hunger.
For individuals looking for specific ratios of amino acids, the following charts will be helpful:
|Naturally Occurring Amino Acids per 15 Gram Serving of Plain or Mixed Berry |

Which amino acids have you added, and are they from natural or artificial sources?
All amino acids in NutriBiotic's Organic Rice Protein are naturally occurring components of the organic, whole grain, sprouted brown rice.
Can children take the Rice Protein?
The Rice Protein is safe for all ages. Please consult a physician or nutritionist for individual dietary needs.
What is the Protein Efficiency Ratio (PER) of NutriBiotic Rice Protein?
The Protein Efficiency Ratio (PER) is the measure of actual protein available for the body to use. This PER is related to the percentage of the protein digested by the body. With Rice Protein, after 4 hours better than 80% of the protein has been digested, compared to only about 57% for soy. The actual PER number of Rice Protein is 2.75. Egg is the highest at 3.99, milk is second with 3.45, rice third, and soy is last with a PER of 2.32.
Is your Rice Protein gluten free?
Yes, NutriBiotic Rice Protein is made from gluten free, whole grain, sprouted brown rice and is processed using organic plant enzymes that are not related to wheat or any of its relatives. Therefore, processing of the rice does not contaminate the rice protein with gluten in any way. It is recommended that further concerns regarding the Rice Protein for those with severe food sensitivities should consult their doctor or dietician.
In 1980, after nearly ten years in the nutritional supplement industry, NutriBiotic was founded based on the principle that everyone deserves good health. Inspired by the research and recommendations of the world's only two-time Nobel Laureate, Linus Pauling, Ph.D., NutriBiotic began work on development of a variety of forms and dosages of Vitamin C and other nutrients. NutriBiotic felt that the public should have the best possible variety of the best possible nutrients at the best possible price, and our initial successes with our family of products showed that you thought so too.
Soon after NutriBiotic began filling the need for quality nutritional supplements, NutriBiotic found another need - the need for high quality, nutrient dense protein in a hypoallergenic form for the chemical and food sensitive individual. NutriBiotic Rice Protein powder meets that need without soy, milk, egg, wheat or yeast.
In 1987 NutriBiotic pioneered the process and use of grapefruit seed extract. You will find the fruits of our labors in their range of products containing Citricidal, including their skin cleansers, shower gel and bubble bath, dental gel, deodorant stick, foot powder, multi-purpose liquid concentrate, CapsulesPlus, and more.
At NutriBiotic they stand committed to providing the very best for you and your family and are pleased to be able to offer you an ever-expanding range of quality nutritional supplements and personal care formulas developed with the intent of protecting and enhancing your health.
