Usually, when you hear “rice” you think of carbs, not protein. But there’s enough protein in those little grains for anyone (vegetarian or otherwise) to boost lean muscle and strength. If you’ve been avoiding rice products because you think of them as “carb foods,” it’s time you tapped into the power of rice protein.

Rice protein provides the body with nutrients called amino acids. The kinds of amino acids in rice protein might help to protect the body from too much sugar in the blood. It has 'thermic effect', meaning that they create heat in the body through the process of digestion.
Rice protein is considered a medium-digesting protein. It absorbs more slowly than whey (which is the speediest one on the market), but it’s faster than casein (the slowest-digesting protein).
To get a little more technical, rice protein has greater than 90% digestibility and a relatively high bioavailability (how much of the protein is actually utilized by the body). For perspective, its ratings compare favorably to soy protein and are on par with pea protein, but rice protein isn’t quite as bioavailable as whey.
Rice protein is slightly sweet and mixes easily in liquids.
