NutriBiotic Vegan Rice Protein is produced by means of a unique enzyme process. A proprietary blend of organic plant enzymes are used to separate the fiber and carbohydrates from the protein portion of the whole grain brown rice. Low temperatures used during processing prevent denaturing of the amino acids. No chemicals are used at any time. Due to this enzyme process, color, taste, and texture may vary.
Why use NutriBiotic Rice Protein?
NutriBiotic's Rice Protein is an excellent source of vegan, hypo-allergenic 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, plus some folks simply don’t like the taste. Rice protein offers a vegan alternative to soy, without the animal products of whey. And rice protein actually is utilized more efficiently by the body than soy, too. Rice protein is suitable for use by those with food allergies and has even been used for gavage feeding (tube feeding) of infants, the elderly and the severely ill. It has a mild flavor similar to that of Cream of Rice cereal (remember back to your early childhood) and may be used in beverages, sprinkled on cereals and yogurt, and 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.
Is NutriBiotic Rice Protein made from genetically modified rice?
No, their rice protein is not made from genetically modified rice, furthermore, the enzymes and natural vanilla flavoring used in their rice protein are naturally occurring from organisms that have not been modified by recombinant DNA techniques.
Rice is a carbohydrate. How do you get protein from it?
All foods contain amino acids, which are the building blocks of what are collectively called protein. Broccoli contains protein, as do all fruits and vegetables and grain products. They have isolated the protein from the carbohydrate molecules in the rice to give you rice protein.
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 natural enzymes that digest the carbohydrate portion of the rice and leave the protein. The result is a very pure protein free of additives or chemicals, which could cause sensitivity. (Note: Occasionally individuals are sensitive to the enzymes used in processing. This is extremely rare - NutriBiotic has had only one report of such sensitivity on all the years that they have offered Rice Protein)
Is Rice Protein considered a complete protein? How does it compare to whey?
Yes. The term “complete protein” refers to the inclusion of all nine essential amino acids. Rice Protein contains these nine amino acids, plus all other non-essential amino’s. All ingredients in their rice protein are naturally occurring components of the actual rice. They have added nothing to their product. For individuals looking for specific rations of amino acids, the following chart will be helpful. Persons on restrictive diets would do well to consult their health care practitioner or nutritionist before adopting or rejecting use of the rice protein. They cannot recommend use of their product to treat conditions other than hunger.
The NutriBiotic Story
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., they began work on development of a variety of forms and dosages of Vitamin C and other nutrients. They felt that the public should have the best possible variety of the best possible nutrients at the best possible price, and their initial successes with their family of products showed that you thought so too.
Soon after NutriBiotic began filling the need for quality nutritional supplements, they found another need - the need for high quality, nutrient dense protein in a hypoallergenic form for the chemical and food sensitive individual. Their 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 their 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.
The folks at NutriBiotic 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.
