How does it work ?
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. They might also help to reduce blood pressure and blood fats.
Uses & Effectiveness
Possibly Effective for
Food allergies. Most infant formulas are made with protein that comes from cow’s milk. If an infant is allergic to cow’s milk, a special form of cow’s milk formula can be used instead. But this type of formula often tastes bitter. Most research shows that rice protein formulas can be a good protein replacement for these babies. When rice protein is used in formula, it is broken down into smaller pieces and some additional nutrients are added to make it a complete source of nutrition for infants.
Insufficient Evidence for
- Muscle soreness caused by exercise. Early research shows that taking rice protein in water immediately after exercise works as well as whey protein for reducing muscle soreness after exercise.
- Muscle strength. Early research shows that taking rice protein in water immediately after exercise works as well as whey protein for building muscle strength.
