What is Organic Brown Rice Protein?

Organic brown rice protein is an incredibly popular protein supplement, particularly for people who suffer from food allergies and/or refuse to consume any form of produce that has been derived from an animal. As the name implies, brown rice protein is a protein that is derived from brown rice, which is actually packed full of protein. The proteins found in grains of brown rice are isolated, filtered, and processed, until you are left with a high protein powder that is ideal for anybody looking to increase their protein consumption. Brown rice contains natural proteins and starches, just like white rice. The added benefit associated with brown rice however, is that it is rich in numerous other healthy ingredients as well, including vitamins and minerals.

How does it work?

Organic brown rice protein works in virtually the same way as various other proteins you can expect to find in the supplement world. Protein is vital for the health function of our cells, which in itself, makes it hugely beneficial as, without it, our cells would break down and die. In terms of muscle growth and repair however, brown rice protein really comes into its own. Protein is vital for muscle function, growth, and repair, which basically means that, after we exercise and lift weights, in order for the body to rebuild and re-grow these muscle tissues even bigger and stronger than they were before, it would require the right nutrients and the right ingredients, which include proteins and amino acids. Brown rice proteins are relatively slow to be digested and broken down, making this a fantastic alternative to casein protein, which is also derived from dairy.

What are the main benefits of using Organic Brown Rice Protein supplements?

Some of the primary benefits associated with taking brown rice protein supplements, include:

Muscle growth and repair

As mentioned, when we exercise and lift weights, our existing muscle tissue is actually damaged and broken down. In order for the body to repair and rebuild it, it needs access to proteins and amino acids. Brown rice protein provides plenty of both, allowing the body to initiate protein synthesis, and begin to repair and rebuild damaged muscle tissue.

Slow release proteins

Brown rice protein is a slow release protein that is broken down and absorbed by the body much slower than other proteins. For this reason, it is ideal when combined with a quicker releasing protein, and it is also perfect for consuming right before bed, in order to keep your body in a constant anabolic state as you sleep.

Nutrient rich

Another great benefit associated with brown rice protein is the fact that it is packed full of healthy and beneficial nutrients, that the body absolutely thrives upon. Brown rice protein is rich in dietary fibre, that can help prevent cancer, can improve digestion, and can help suppress the appetite. It is also rich in B vitamins and minerals that strengthen the immune system, and provide numerous other health benefits in the process.

Other benefits include:

  • Great source of protein
  • Slow release protein
  • Rich in vitamins and minerals
  • Packed full of amino acids
  • Helps increase muscle mass
  • Increases muscle strength
  • Can help suppress the appetite
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Easy and convenient to consume
  • Vegan and vegetarian-friendly
  • Hypallergenic
  • And more...

How and when should it be consumed?

For optimal results, experts recommend consuming 1 – 3 brown rice protein shakes per day. As it is a slow-releasing protein source, experts recommend consuming a brown rice shake first thing in the morning, last thing at night, and if having one post-workout, combining it with a faster absorbing protein. Simply add one scoop to your beverage of choice, mix well, and enjoy.

Brown Rice Protein VS Pea Protein Isolate

Pea protein isolate is derived from peas, and again, is also vegan and vegetarian-friendly. As it is an isolate, that basically means that you get more protein per serving. Pea protein isolate is absorbed much quicker than brown rice protein, although it is often cheaper and therefore contains less nutrients. Pea protein contains less nutrients and different amino acids to brown rice proteins, with the main differences being the rates of absorption.

Nutrition facts

100% Brown Rice Protein

What can it be stacked with?

Brown rice protein is a popular vegan/vegetarian bodybuilding supplement, and as a result, it is often stacked with other supplements designed to increase muscle mass, including: BCAAs, Multi-vitamins, and L-Glutamine. Some users will also stack it with Pea Protein, or Hemp Protein, as they are absorbed at a different rate.

Potential side effects

When using any new supplements, always speak to your doctor and discontinue usage if you experience any adverse side effects. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should speak to their doctor before using brown rice protein supplements. Although very safe and very healthy, potential side effects associated with brown rice protein, include:

  • Stomach cramps
  • Flatulence
  • Bloating
  • Constipation

5/5 For sure
Mehran P. on 13/10/2016

I had gotten the Mass Gainer before but it wasn't for me, just made my stomach all bloated unfortunately and could barely workout even which is vital to me having a shake before a workout. Sent it back and picked up this baby with the pea protein isolate, and after having just one shake with all my veges/fruits etc, I can already feel how amazing it feels. Can literally feel my muscles growing from the surplus in protein lol. And having a mostly meatless diet with not much animal by-products, I wasn't getting enough protein so this should fill that role nicely! Especially since the brown rice protein powder has a different amino acid profile so they cover each others weaknesses, making it a GRADE A COMBINATION! Thank you again Canadian Protein for the AMAZING deals and supplements!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't get over it!

Organic Brown Rice Protein - Great Clean Product
Shelley K. on 06/10/2016
Guelph, Ontario, Canada
As a person from the WLS (weight-loss surgery) community with an altered physiology, protein supplementation is essential to not only success but meeting nutritional goals in losing excess weight and maintaining and healing a healthy body. Finding a clean protein that is not soy or have any other additives can be a challenge. I was very excited to have found this product as well other the other veg proteins (hemp and pea). I mix all three to make sure I get a good cross-section of amino acid profile. The bland taste is perfect on its own or adding to a blending veg and/or fruit smoothie. Excellent!! Please use my code when ordering to support me meeting my goals! 284955009

Getting use to the taste but glad it isn't nearly as costly as the whey, making sure to use cold water makes it much better

Good price on a Top Quality Protein

Can't find this quality protein (slow absorption) at anywhere near this price. Normally don't spend money on this type of protein but at this price it is well worth it.

Very Nice

Brown Rice Protein on the Island is close to 40 bucks for 908mg so getting 5kg for $100 is 1/2 the price. We get screwed on the Island for everything. I dont have much money so when I see them jack up yellow pea protein by 8 bucks last month at the grocery store its hard to swallow. 6 or 8 months ago pumpkin seed protein powder went up by 1/3 in one go. Im so glad I found this website by chance. Nice to finally get to pay less now that the avg local whey protein person pays on the island. I also plan to buy a 5kg bag of brown rice since I try to mix them both to mix up the amino acid profile numbers. Thanks very much. Shipping was great too.

Pea Protein Isolate and Organic Brown Rice Protein
Ali K. on 27/07/2016
Toronto, Canada
I ordered both the pea protein and brown rice protein. I am extremely happy with my purchase. I have always used Whey proteins, but never felt comfortable consuming so much dairy based product. The plant base component of these proteins are a much guilt free habit. I think most people can agree that plant based foods are always better for you then dairy and meat (and I'm no vegetarian). The first few times it was definitely an un-easy taste, especially coming from flavored milk based proteins. It gets better as you get used to it, especially if you’re mixing a little cinnamon and/or fruiets into your shake. These proteins have a sort of flour and water taste. We got to remember were not drinking these for leisure, rather for specific physical and health results. The brown rice is a little grainy (micro and nothing to crazy), but eh it’s based from rice what can we expect. I shopped around everywhere and both the pea and rice proteins are priced the lowest here than anywhere else. You may want to get a container to transfer the powder to as the bags aren't the best for everyday use. Shipping was super fast.

Fantastic for the fitness fanatic!
WILLIAM M. on 22/07/2016

This stuff is fantastic hands down. As a martial artist and up and coming bodybuilder, I found this protein helps even the hard gainer.
The taste is slightly nutty, I find a little almond or cashew milk blends the flavor better.
I have been mixing the Rice Protein with Pea Protein daily which gives you your full Amino profile, and a total of almost 50 grams of protein.
If you are a vegan, light on meats, or just looking for something different, this is a go!
I recommend this, and am recommending it to sports & medical therapy clinics as well.

Coming from Vega brand, I was a bit skeptical, but ordered it anyways. First of all, shipping was way too fast, and constant notifications of the status. Finally, the Brown rice protein - it tasted really bad the first couple of days, but then I got used to it so much that I can't drink Vega anymore as it way too sweet to me. Great product, thank you.

Great Item
Daniel on 25/01/2016
I really like this stuff. I find if I have a few scoops every day, I am a lot more alert and have more energy. The taste is obviously bland, so you need to mix it with the right stuff. My favourite recipe makes a kind of cookie-dough like texture. Mix 2-3 scoops with 2-3 tbsp of honey, 2 squares (20g) of one of those dark chocolate bars, a little salt, a little veg oil, 1 tsp cinnamon, and enough water to give it a doughy texture but not so much that it's like pancake batter. Use really hot water so it melts the chocolate a bit. Add honey if it still tastes too bland.

Great product
Thomas on 09/01/2016
Personally, I prefer the pea protein isolate to the brown rice protein. The grit of the rice protein just gets to me and pea protein is cheaper. Buuuut, pea protein is low in the sulfur-containing amino acids, cysteine and methionine. Rice protein, as you can see from the nutrition facts section canadianprotein has graciously provided, is high in cysteine and methionine. In order to get that balanced amino acid profile, it's a good idea to purchase and be consuming both. Both are great products. No problems during the shipping process.

Very inexpensive, and does the job.

It's really hard to find vegan protein at these prices. The texture isn't great, but that's par for the course with rice protein. I plan to buy more.

Great, but grainy, protein
Ben on 01/10/2015

Like another review said, it is pretty grainy, but that can be solved by letting it sit for a few minutes. I recommend for making smoothies, rather than mixing with just water. Great product!

Good value

I can only compare this to TP rice protein - same gritty taste, which anybody taking rice protein should be used to; decent taste. Great value. It would be a huge plus if company could post a third party (purity?) test results on the product page.

Unlike whey protein this product stays gritty in a smoothie. The grit goes away after about 4 to 5 minutes but then the smoothie is so thick it is like pudding. My advice is to make your smoothie VERY thin and let it stand for a few minutes.

Best Rice Protein!

This is a top quality product. It is the least chalky brown rice protein I've had yet. Great price and great taste, even if it's unflavored.

Speaking as someone who has both dairy, gluten and egg allergies, let me first of all say a big thank you to Canadian Protein for stocking this item! In addition it is organic and non-GMO which is fantastic for those of us who are health conscious. The taste is pretty bland and the texture is a little gritty, but that is to be expected from an unflavoured rice protein. It does however mix very well. Thanks CP for stocking this item!

Great product and great price
Crandall on 31/03/2015

I've been using this for 1-2 weeks and I'm very satisfied. The price is fantastic compared to what others charge for their 1kg retail package. It is super-fine and dusts up easily. It is gritty, but this is expected with rice protein. It mixes very well. For those that absolutely have to have flavour, it's great for shakes/smoothies, but I drink it with water and it's fine. Will definitely buy more when I run out.

PETER on 20/03/2015
I bought the unsweetened version of the product and as expected it was grainy. It will not have a shake-like consistency of whey. But this product is great for fruit smoothies. It also does well when mixed with things like chocolate pudding and in egg whites. I heard this product lends well when baking but I have not personally tried baking with this product yet. I use this product because Im a lacto-ovo vegetarian.

Great Protein Content but too Chalky
Tamara on 31/08/2015
I've been using this product for my daily vegan protein shakes because of the high protein content. However, there's a chalky texture and taste That I haven't been able to mask despite the variation of recipes I've tried. I will continue to purchase other products from Canadian Protein. Likely not this product unless there's an improvement.

Healthy Choice
Jon on 13/06/2015
This brown rice protein is very healthy. I mix this into pasta, vegetables, and other watery foods to add extra protein and make it extra filling. This has no flavour so it does not interfere with the other foods and spices.
