Brown Rice Protein Powder

Short Description

Our brown rice protein is sourced from organically grown rice throughout China where it has been domesticated for thousands of years. The rice is grown until it’s protein content is high, then harvested, extracted at low temperatures and milled into a fine powder. The result is a plant based, amino acid rich protein powder that is easy to incorporate into drinks and baked goods.

Process

The quality of rice is determined by when it’s harvested, and the people that tend to our rice have generations of experience. While the rice matures and develops there are many changes in the bioactive compounds, some of these changes include moisture content, taste and protein content. We harvest the rice when its protein content is high and send the kernels to be milled. Milling the rice removes the inedible husk which is least detrimental to the nutritional profile. The resulting brown rice is much more nutrient rich than its more processed counterpart, white rice. We then extract the protein with enzymes from multiple layers of the whole grain at low temperatures. No hexanes, synthetic chemicals or GMO's. Amino acids are recognized and absorbed by the body in any form and digested as easily if not better than a whole food protein. Since there are little carbohydrates and fiber for the body to break down, it can utilize the proteins more efficiently. While brown rice protein is a great source of amino acids, it does not offer a full profile and is best taken with another plant-based protein such as hemp or pea protein.

Use

Use brown rice protein powder in smoothies, shakes and baked goods for a slightly sweet, healthy dose of protein, manganese and iron.

Source

Our brown rice is grown throughout Asia where it has been domesticated for thousands of years. The plants grow in small patches of upright stems that can reach up to 2 meters in height. The leaves that sprout from the plant are long, flat and straight, while the stems produce small flowers. The flowers are sparse along the stem, resemble a braided arch and turn into kernels containing rice when fully grown.
