How to Use It

While rice protein’s effectiveness has not been tested in human studies, athletes sometimes include 10 to 15 grams of rice protein in their daily protein supplement.

Where to Find It

Cooked rice contains about 8 to 11% protein, or 2 to 3 grams per ½ cup serving. Concentrated rice protein is available as a supplement.

Possible Deficiencies

Deficiencies of rice protein are not important, since most diets provide many other sources of protein and Western diets are typically abundant.
