Proteins are macronutrients that are essential for the human body. They are one of the building blocks of body tissue and can also serve as a fuel source. They are needed for building muscle mass. Protein is found throughout the body - in muscle, bone, skin, hair, and virtually every other body part or tissue. It makes up the enzymes that power many chemical reactions and the haemoglobin that carries oxygen in your blood. Protein is commonly found in animal products, though is also present in other sources, such as nuts, seeds and legumes.
Chemically, Protein is made up of amino acids, which are organic compounds made of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen or sulphur. We don’t store amino acids, so our bodies make them in two different ways: either from scratch, or by modifying others. The nine essential amino acids (histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine) are ones that we must get from food.
Rice has been a staple of the human diet for thousands of years. Some rice farming tools from China date back 8,000 years, and some remains of ancient rice are up to 2,000 years older than that. Arab traders introduced rice to ancient Greece, and Alexander the Great (356-323 B.C.) brought it to India. The Moors brought rice to Spain in the eighth century, and the Spanish introduced it into South America in the 17th century.
Brown Rice has the outer husk removed, as that part is inedible, but it still has the bran and wheat germ layers, which white rice does not (as they are removed). Because of this, brown rice has quite a lot more nutrients and features that are beneficial to the body, particularly fibre and some vitamins and minerals.
Rice protein powder is made by grinding up rice grains and treating them with an enzyme that separates the starch (carbohydrate) from the protein. Our Brown Rice Protein Powder is a great alternative to common sources of protein such as meat and dairy, particularly for those who have food intolerances or a restricted diet.
