Product Overview

What is Brown Rice Protein?

Brown Rice Protein is the concentrated fraction of the whole rice grain which is produced through a wet milling and all natural proprietary process. It is produced by various steps of fermentation, filtration processing and enzymatic processing to remove the protein and fiber from whole grain brown rice. The basis for this process is sprouted whole grain brown rice which is the raw material for production. Brown Rice Protein uses non-GMO sprouted brown rice and it is hypo-allergenic and completely dairy and lactose free.

does its job

Wanted to try different non-dairy, non-soy protein powders, and apart from pea protein powder this is the best alternative. May not taste that great when used on its own, but when mixed with porridge, soup, or just generally put into any food you make, the taste isn't that noticable. As a pre/post workout shake it's best mixed with other protein powders, because on its own it is rather gritty and doesn't mix that well.

If you're after non a non dairy protein source then this is it, mixes well and with around 24g protein with each 30g scoop you can't go to wrong. The taste however is something else, some people comparing it to cardboard are not far off, but it has to be one of the most disgusting tastes ever. It's taste is so over powering, I've tried to make protein pancakes, protein flapjacks etc. using this protein as opposed to whey but you can't escape the gritty nature and vile taste. When it comes to shakes I've tried to mix it with cinnamon, cocoa powder, honey, chia seeds and a range of others just to try and partly remove the taste but I simply cannot. I've literally just purchased a smoothie maker, so will try and mix fruits etc. with the protein to see if I can get away from the horrible taste. I'm not actually lactose intolerant like some people are, I choose not to take whey protein as I'm a sufferer of acne, and if any of you do any research with regards to whey protein and acne, then you will understand the situation I'm in. I stopped taking whey about 2/3 months back, but it's so hard to get the right amount of proteins in my diet to hit my macros without the odd shake or two during the day, hence why I searched for non-dairy protein shake source. If anyone is looking to take this as a whey alternative due to acne like myself, so far I can tell you I've had no adverse effects so far, just the taste makes it so hard to bare. All I can say is grit your teeth and drink this as fast as you can, have water next to use each time as after every mouthful your mouth becomes dry as if you've just swallowed some chalk. I've given this 4 stars purely based on the reason why we take this - to add protein to our diets to compliment our training and it does that. Good luck!

The taste and textureof this drink took some getting used to. I tried mixing it in smoothies and everything and still found it a little chalky and grim. However keep a glass of water to hand and you will get used to it quite quickly, and its not that bad after that. It has however produced some good results in terms of building muscle and definition, I'm not using this to bulk up, Im more interested in dropping fat and toning up. On that front this has worked well and i feel energetic and good in general whilst using it. It hasn't supressed my hunger as much as the Whey Isolate did in the past though, but that is no big thing

I'm not sure I would use this as my only source of protein. I use it as a cheaper alternative to whey isolate and use whey isolate after training.

Brown rice protein

Been using the pea protein for a while with good results, so decided to try the brown rice protein as it's amino acid profile complements the profile of pea protein. I've been using half a scoop of each powder and whacked it down in a shaker with a good amount of water...the less water in the shaker the harder it is to mix I found. Taste wise it's a bit weird, not particularly nice but mixed with the pea protein it's a lot better. I can definitely identify with the gritty texture it leaves on your teeth afterwards which isn't pleasant, but it's good protein when all said and done and it definitely helps feed my muscles with good stuff to help repair and recover. My advice is man up, and get it down, for a non dairy protein coupled with pea protein you can't go far wrong with this product.

After reading the reviews I was a bit confused but decided to give it a go as I was annoyed how whey protein made me feel. Being bloated is not fun and looking 4 months pregnant is not so enjoyable either. All the negativity was directed mostly towards the taste. Not exactly sure how brown rice protein tastes on it's own because I took advice from a friend and I mixed the brown rice protein with pea protein and mix it just with water without adding flavourings and I must be weird because I totally don't mind the taste. You definitely wont go "mmm that's soo good" but it's not the worst tasting thing that I've drank or eaten for sure. For those really fussy ones if you mix it with juice you wont be able to taste it (tried that with first shake to be on the safe side) I cannot really comment on effectiveness just yet but I can say that it doesn't make me bloated and uncomfortably full after drinking it so therefore I love it.

Juice makes it yummy

This type of protein powder can be tasty if and only if you are adding an acidic juice to it. The best I have found to break up that chalkiness of the taste is cranberry juice and/or pomegranate juice. I have not tried orange juice but that is because orange juice makes me nauseous. Anyway, the first time I ever tried Brown Rice Protein was in a mix with Pea Protein and that did not taste well with anything unless it was baked into some muffins or something. I can't consume whey and there is controversial studies about soy, so rice seems to be the safest alternative to everything. The only drawback is that the juices have 28g of sugar. I buy unsweetened cranberry juice by ocean spray and blend it with the protein mix. Then after it is blended I drop a few ice cubes in the drink. The texture is still too thick if I blend the ice with the ice and protein powder. It's as if the water has diluted the acidity of the cranberry juice and it prevents the cranberry juice from breaking up the rice protein bonds that is probably making it taste so gritty. I only ever made it through organic chemistry so maybe a biochemist could explain this better. For whatever reason, it just tastes better to me if I don't include the ice in the blender. Since it does have so much sugar, even in the unsweetened juice, I pretend it's a milkshake because it tastes just as sweet as one. I want to try to find a cranberry juice that does not have aspartame in it or 28g of sugar but I have yet to find one. I hope this helps all of you beginner rice protein drinkers, I am trying to spread the word as it can be good if you know how to make it. I always feel great for the rest of the day after I drink this. It's sort of tough to handle the taste but after the fourth day it's almost like you crave it. It becomes addictive - I never thought I'd say that.

Finally - a protein shake with no sweeteners

I purchased this Brown Rice Protein powder a couple of weeks ago on the recommendation of a friend who, like myself, cannot stand the taste of the run of the mill protein powders with added everything. Artificial fruit flavours, honestly make me gag, and I would rather have a square of dark chocolate to satisfy my (rare) chocolate craving than fake plastic chocolate flavour in a shake. This is the perfect alternative, with no fat or sugar, or indeed carbs worth noting, the taste is a little like drinking sand but mixed with unsweetened almond milk rather than water it just tastes like a thicker almond milk drink. You do have to re-shake every couple of mouthfuls as it settles quite quickly but it's no big deal to be honest - it gives me a nice full feeling without feeling bloated like whey or caseine does and it doesn't have anything that clashes with my supplement stack or have any added caffeine or taurine, so I can take it later in the day if I want to. I haven't tried mixing it with anything yet, but I can imagine it would go well with oats or banana to give it a kick, or to healthily improve your shake with some blended spinach.

Good for sensetive tummies, dairy intolerant etc.

I bought a large 2.5 kg bag of Brown Rice Protein recently and I'm really happy with it. I used to buy another brand of rice protein from the USA that was organic, but after getting a couple of bad batches (rancid) I decided to try a new supplier. I'm not a super fit bodybuilder or anything just a semi-vegetarian looking for some healthy, easy to digest protein to have as a breakfast that can keep me satisfied until lunch time. The texture of this is finer than other rice protein powders I've tried, so I find that it mixes easily. I think this also contributes to a less chalky taste/texture. However, it still has a slightly chalky texture, I think that is just what you get with any rice protein. In terms of flavour, it has a mild cereal like taste with a hint of bitterness (reminiscent of sesame seed perhaps). But I much prefer it to hemp protein (bitter and gritty) or pea protein (rather savoury and lentil like). Also, I have had adverse reactions to pea protein (nausea, upset stomach etc.) so I never want to try that again. I have a sensitive stomach but have no problems with this rice protein, in fact I usually feel good/energised within an hour of consuming it and don't get hungry again for 4-6 hours. I exercise lightly most days (yoga/pilates) and do physical work most days (yard work, DIY) and without some kind of protein for breakfast I get really hungry and cranky by lunchtime! I usually have 1.5 to 2 tablespoons of the powder mixed with a smoothie, goats yoghurt or almond milk and ground flax seeds. Cocoa and/or cinnamon is a good addition to improve the flavour, with a bit of honey for sweetness.

Good but so bad!

A godo product, mixes pretty well and seems to eb very easy to digest (I'm not bloating like I seem to with why protein shakes), and seems to be doing the trick with supporting protein intake (gradually building muscle mass). But, there's no two ways about it, this tastes bad! Another reviewer compared the taste to cardboard and I'd say that's pretty much spot on. I've tried mixing this with cocoa powder and some sweetener and that seems to be the only way i can make it palatable (i tried the flavour drops but it's still a cloying, sawdust/cardboard taste). I even tried making peanut butter and coca cookies with it and cant mask the taste. I'm going to stick with it for two reasons - it's a cheap, healthy source of protein and it seems to work well with my digestion, just got to figure out ways to make it more palatable! Seems to be better the more diluted it is so maybe that's the solution...

This brown rice protein is an excellent accompaniment to a plant based diet. It's mainly aimed for those that don't eat dairy or eggs and are weary about taking soy protein because of it's estrogenic properties. One of the good things about this protein is that it doesn't come with soy or sunflower lecithin, it's just pure protein, nothing added or taken away. The taste is awful first time you try it, the only way to explain it is like drinking wet sand. It's got a chalky aftertaste that can leave your mouth feeling very dry. The best way to drink it I've found is with rice milk and vanilla powder, even still it's by no means enjoyable, almond milk works quite well also as far as milks go. I've noticed my gains are less than whey isolate / concentrate on this powder, probably because of it's incomplete amino acid profile. Whilst saying that there's only a small difference, which highlights that the protein is effective post workout. It's really the best choice out there for vegans, take it from me who has tried hideous products like sunwarrior warrior blend, this is the best value protein on the market for those with an aversion to dairy and eggs. It's clean, it is not tasty, but if I had a choice between this and Pea protein isolate in terms of taste I'd choose this 1000 times over.

Not great

The Brown Rice Protein really is not palatable at all. I can't imagine it in a shake, I even tried baking it in something and the rough taste still comes through.

further comments

I missed two important facts from my previous review. A lot of us do not want flavour. We want to add it to foods, so if it tasted of banana or whatever that would not be a positive. Also, I don't want sugar or sweeteners added. I'm trying to reduce carbs. Even artificial sweeteners are a bad idea: there is evidence that simply experiencing a sweet taste primes the body to secrete insulin and lay down fat.

The taste of the Brown Rice Protein is foul, a bit like burnt pork scratching, but then I don't really care about taste. I just have it with a small amount of water, it mixes well and it's a great, clean protein.

brown rice protein -well what do you expect?

I don't understand the negative reviews. It's unflavoured rice protein. It tastes of rice. In fact it tastes of very little. As expected surely. When mixed it does not stay suspended for long. It settles out, so you have to re-shake it immediately before drinking. This is why I've given it 2 stars for this factor, but I don't view it as at all important. I've not had any digestive problems either. So if you want a good balance of amino acids from a non-dairy source, without a lot of associated carbs (it's 80% protein and only 3% carbs) this is a good product.

Goes Well With:

You can enrich pasta sauces with rice protein to keep you fuller for longer.

I am intolerant to dairy and gluten, so whey protein is not an option for me. I mix Brown Rice Protein (two scoops) with rice milk and banana flav drops in a blender and it tastes really nice. You need to flavour it as the standard taste is somewhat similar to cardboard.

Great I love it!

It is better to cook this Brown Rice Protein. Personally, I mix 50/50 with the vegan blend, as I like the idea of multi-protein source. Usually I cook with either ramen noodles, add the hot water to make a soupy consistency, then microwave for long enough that it's cooked, so around 2.5 minutes. The bitterness neutralised by the cooking. I also do similar with porridge oats and honey, which makes a great breakfast. The other thing I do is mix it in with a curry sauce, which kind of helps to thicken and give some body, and from a nutrition point of view adds protein.

really bad mistake

I really regret buying this Brown Rice Protein powder. I wanted to try a 'cleaner' protein powder to get away from all the chemicals and flavourings which are present in the whey protein I had been using, so I purchased the brown rice protein. It has the most disgusting texture, like eating crumbled chalk. I have tried it in smoothies with fruit, no matter how much water or almond milk is used to mix it with, the texture still remains horrible. I have used it to make protein pancakes and it just makes the texture worse. I am now stuck with 2kg of the stuff and it was a complete waste of money. I'm really disappointed with the quality of this stuff.

"This tastes great when mixed with Pea Protein Isolate, I use 1/2 scoop of Pea Protein Isolate, and 1/2 scoop of Brown Rice Protein mixed with 200ml of water. I use flavdrops to add some taste. It seems like the sweetness of the Pea protein goes well with the chalkiness of the Rice Protein and vice versa. Pea protein is low in the sulfurous amino acids (cysteine and methionine) but rich in lysine; in contrast, rice protein is deficient in lysine but has high levels of both cysteine and methionine. Making the combination of the two a a superior amino acid profile than either protein alone. Its a shame that myProtein doesn't offer a 1/2 sized scoop (35ml) but I find that two tablespoons (the accurate home baking kind) of each protein is near enough. I have also just read that myProtein are offering a premixed vegan protein using Pea, Rice, and Hemp. I cant wait to try that out."

"I tried this for no other reason than the fact that other protein sources such as whey sometimes make me feel bloated (I like True MRP, but it does start to bloat me after a few days of use). I first tried it with 250mls of skimmed milk and I found it had hardly any flavour (a good thing) but had a very sandy texture which feels gritty on your teeth. However, later on after a workout I mixed 30g with 500ml of Powerade and it mixed fine with very little grittiness; the flavour of the beverage was almost the same - only the colour changed. This gave me an idea and highlights the product's main strength; it can be mixed fine with things like apple juice or practically anything that you want to add a bit of protein to. This is very easily digested and is really 'clean' food. If I want to add some carbs I will probably mix it with instant oats, but really it could be mixed with anything. I have no specific dietary restrictions, but will continue to use this, as I intend to use supplements with more simple, natural ingredients. I definitely recommend 500mls of liquid for a 30g scoop to alleviate the grittiness."

Trying the hemp and the soy, I thought would be great but to be fair didnt see any gains in my strength or energy at all, and they still upset my tummy! This brown rice protein is perfect for me, I work in a gym and workout very regular and due to being extremely active but not being able to have dairy proteins or gluten products I find it hard to get the right nutrition for fuelling workouts. This has been a god send, I rate it so highly but I will say if you are not good with making smoothies this will taste pretty bad on its own.

"Brown rice protein is FANTASTIC overall (except one little gripe - read on), especially for people coming from the RAW food movement or VEGAN movement who also want to benefit from weight training and all its associated benefits. Big plus is that it doesn't contain animal products (see books on ""China Study"", ""RAW for 30 days"" etc - I'm no hippie tree-hugger but I try to phase a high animal protein diets with raw vegan diets throughout the year) and its amino acid profile is very good do you can easily integrate it into a VEGAN or RAW bulking/cutting program. Only gripe is the mixability/texture. If just mixed by hand with water it has the consistency/texture of coarse baby powder and saw dust which if you drink it gets stuck at the back of your throat. If you use milk to mix it then obviously you're going to get a better mix. Cutting it half/half with commercial protein powders does help but again, unmistakable. Perhaps using a blender would give better results but, until then it gets 4 out 5 because of the mixability/texture issue, otherwise great product. Oh and it agrees wholeheartedly with my intestines, no problem there."

Its nice enough to be fine with just milk, with a sort of nutty flavour, but it isn't delicious. Even though everyone says its gritty I still wasn't prepared for it, though if it puts you off completely then you probably are a giant wuss.

It has a gritty texture and the taste is nothing to write home about. But taste is not the reason why we take protein shakes. Does it do the job? Yes! Does it keep you feeling full better than whey? Yes. Add cinnamon and you it tastes ok plus the cinammon regulates the blood sugar levels and the brown rice is low GI.

Mixed with the Organic sprouted Hemp protein MP sell, you would have a 'superfood' protein shake."

"I've been training a long time using whey based proteins and although I had no problems with digestion I wanted to try an alternative after I found out what whey really is! \nUsing the brown rice protein and in combination with a good training regime, I soon saw results (much quicker than when I use to have whey products). I feel that I am having something more substantial as a drink, provides slow energy release and I feel I can push myself harder in the gym. Be warned tho: the taste and texture is not great. It tastes very earthy - I mix mine with some ovaltine, or in a fruit smoothie (that makes it a bit better and I've got some of the vanilla flavoring to try out different combinations). However, the worst part is the texture, very grainy, feels like sand in the mouth and you kind of need to have a drink or rinse after you have it. It mixes easily but if you don't have the whole lot quickly you will soon get residue on the bottom of your mixing bottle which is not great. Overall tho, it is worth it as it is natural and gives really good results! Goodbye to whey for me!"

"I enjoy doing my weights but was unable to back my diet up with Whey protein. It gives me a bad stomach and hang over type feeling. I tried soy protein but didn’t like the after taste and read mixed reviews on different sites about its effectiveness. I called my protein and was advised to try brown rice protein. I am very happy with it, I like the smell and mix it with vanilla flavouring and it goes down a treat. It’s much cheaper than Whey protein so I can consume it three times a day. Well worth trying."

I'm so pleased this is back in - it does taste unpleasant on its own but hey its brown rice - how do you expect it to taste?? However put 5 or so drops of the vannila flavour drops & a dash of cinamon & its really quite nice!! honest - I didnt really expect it to taste that much different but Vanilla defo seems to be the flavour to go for.

"As I have been switching to vegetarian and vegan diet and supplements where ever possible. I had been using myprotein’s Unflavoured Impact Whey protein which, I must say, is a faultless product. I expected this protein powder to behave in a similar ‘whey’ :-D\n\nUnfortunately it doesn’t. Unlike the unflavoured whey equivalent, this stuff tastes foul and smells awful. As a few other reviewers have found it can’t be mixed with just water like the whey because it doesn’t actually dissolve - what you get is a ‘suspension’ of a very, very fine gritty powder. \n\nThis gritty texture is impossible to mask and can be felt as it goes down your throat. You can mask the taste and smell somewhat with a lot of flavouring (I use 10 drops of myprotein’s FlavDrops Strawberry flavouring). But I still have to brace myself for a pretty unpleasant experience when drinking it.\n\nWith the whey product I could add up to 4 scoops at a time and get a creamy drinkable shake, but anything over 2 scoops in a large amount of soy milk is undrinkable no matter how much I try to mask the smell and taste.\n\nI’ll keep experimenting to see if I can make it more palatable because the nutritional profile is as good as many whey products."
