Rice Protein for Weight Management
Also indexed as:Protein (Rice)
Why Do Dieters Use It?*
While no human studies have been done to test the effectiveness of rice protein for muscle growth and repair, athletes sometimes include 10 to 15 grams of rice protein in their daily protein supplement.
What Do the Advocates Say?*
High-protein diets may be effective for weight loss, but some dieters are vegetarian and others may be sensitive to dairy or gluten. Since rice protein is plant-based and gluten-free, it can be a convenient source of protein for these dieters.
*Dieters and weight-management advocates may claim benefits for this supplement based on their personal or professional experience. These are individual opinions and testimonials that may or may not be supported by controlled clinical studies or published scientific articles.
