Brown rice protein powder is also one of the common vegetable protein powders on the market. Rice protein is similar to pea protein and slightly worse than whey protein.
Let’s take a look at the comparative study of rice protein and animal protein. The scientists recruited 24 college students with resistance training experience. They were divided into two groups, one group was supplemented with 48 grams of whey protein after training, and the other group was rice protein. 8 weeks of strength training, 3 times a week. The results showed that the lean body mass, body fat, biceps and quadriceps size of the two groups were improved, but there was no obvious difference between the two groups.
Therefore, brown rice protein can also be used to replace animal protein.
In other words, plant protein not only has similar muscle-increasing and fat-reducing effects, but also does not cause digestive problems. Isn’t it better than animal protein? Why continue to drink animal protein?
I think the disadvantage of plant protein powder is its taste and texture. First, it may be because plant protein has only been sold in recent years, and the choice of flavors is far less than that of whey protein. Second, I don’t know why, but it tastes better than whey protein powder. Third, plant protein powder needs more liquid to mix, otherwise it will easily become a milkshake form.
