Complete, RAW protein, enzymatically extracted from sprouted, whole brown rice. Not only is it Organic, Hexane-free, and non-GMO, this complete protein is gluten-free and hypo-allergenic (unlike many protein powders derived from soy, wheat, or dairy). Also unlike most other rice proteins available, this one is fully compliant with California's Prop 65 purity standards, the most stringent in the world.
Enjoy it in smoothies, sauces, desserts and more!
We use unique, enzymatic extraction process to separate and concentrate the protein from the fats and carbohydrates in rice, to produce a complete, wholesome protein source.
Hexane, Pesticides & Heavy Metals
Many protein powders are really a by-product of the production of other items. Most brown rice protein is the left-over material after creating MSG or rice starch in large Chinese industrial plants. Although this is convenient for the manufacturer, it is anything but healthy for you (and often contributes to high levels of heavy metals, even in organic protein powders!).
Not only is our California rice in harmony with the heavy metals standards of California's Prop 65 (the most stringent standards in the world), our enzymatic process uses absolutely no hexane or heat.
Many food processors use hexane to extract oils and protein from plants like soy and rice. We don't.
Even though the FDA has not labeled hexane as a carcinogen and does not establish testing requirements for its residue in protein powders and oils, it is known to have serious, damaging side effects, particularly to the people exposed in high doses — primarily the workers at factories where hexane is used. Hexane is also a hazardous air pollutant, contributing to smog.
Truly Raw Brown Rice Protein
We also use sprouted whole-grain rice, which adds more complexity to the process but results in a nutritionally superior product. Sprouting activates the enzymes and life-enabling process locked up in grains, nuts and seeds. Sprouting also de-activates many of the anti-nutrients and enzyme inhibitors typically found in grains, nuts, and seeds, ensuring that their rich nutrient profile is actually available.
