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.
With over 24g of protein per 30g serving Brown Rice Protein is a great source of vegetarian protein and can contribute to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.
Brown Rice Protein is the ideal protein choice for anyone looking to increase daily protein intake but avoid dairy and soy protein sources or for vegans and anyone looking to avoid specific allergens such as wheat, gluten, eggs, dairy and soy.

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!Goes Well With:Nothing to my knowledge so far...
I use Brown Rice Protein as a filler in homemade low carb bread, it's easy to mix with other dry materials.
The taste is good with a hint of sweetness. Just remember to mix it with riceprotein for complete protein profile
The taste isn't the best but give it some cocoa and it's okay. Works as well as whey just mix it with peaprotein for complete protein
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. Goes Well With:porridge soup other protein powders
Great for mixing with a fruit juice of yoir choice. I havent seen any bug difference yet but i do have a fast motabilism. Hopefully when i add more meals to my day and keep working out an hour a day i should start adding some pounds. I have out on abiut half a stone but sometimes i cant make up my mind if that just the weight of all the water. Still its protien i can use without being ill and its not that expensive either so 4 star 5 when i actually get some muscle tho ;)
Good source of non-dairy protein and mixes great. Taste is not the best but would not call it bad. Definitely will order it again in the future.Goes Well With:Egg white powder
Try this: 4 tablespoons of greek / plain yoghurt 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder 1 scoop of rice protein 1 banana Stick this in a blender and add honey or syrup if you have a sweet tooth. Delicious.
I started taking brown rice protein (with pea protein for better amino acid profile) - and have noticed huge improvement from the start. Obviously i was laking protein for the intensity of my workouts. The taste is very floury, but that has to be expected. Mixed with couple bananas Goes Well With:water, bananas
This might be a great protein for vegan but on its own it has a very strong and bitter taste (in a bad way), tried mixing it with rice, tired making smoothies and shakes. Its just hard to deal with. Works better when you mix it with other plant proteins. I think its a good product if you can handel it but I wont be purashing again, Pea Protein is less harsh..Goes Well With:Not alot.... Exercise and no sense of taste
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 thingGoes Well With:Nothing I have tried, you just have to suck it up!
I have tired a few proteins now. This I would rank second. Whey isolate being better than egg white power being worse to mix and taste Brown rice protein is filling and mixes well with water. 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. I might try replacing brown rice protein with Calcium caseinate. Goes Well With:creatine, dextrose, instant oats.
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.Goes Well With:Pea protein isolate and water and the ability to ignore your taste buds!
This is a great way to have a more diverse protein intake. Usualy i have 2 or 3 types and brands of proteín shakes as i believe in food diversity. Although this one is a little raw to be taken simple, it goes and blends great with other shakes. I love it with the ones that have stronger flavours as it tones them down and gives them a nice texture.Goes Well With:Blended with other strong flavoured protein shakes like Whey and Soy
Despite its awful taste and gritty texture and also had a tendency to leave a film of plaque/starch over your teeth generally on the whole this protein does what it says on the tin. Goes Well With:Honey, bananas, blueberries, cocoa, plain yogurt all blended up
This protein powder has helped transformed my life. I suffer from IBS, so cannot take dairy protein powders. This digests very well and has helped me put on 45 pounds over the past year. Cannot recommend enough. The taste takes some getting used to, overall its the best protein powder out there for me (having tried other vegan powders too).Goes Well With:Oats, l-glutamine, BCAA
Good quality protein, Mixes well, tastes good! Very good protein good price!
Found this has just what I need after a tough workout without any of the dairy, wheat, whey, gluten Etc that I exclude from my diet. Price very good too.Goes Well With:Water or coconut milk
Really good, has an odd taste when you try it for the first time, but I got used to it after a few days.Goes Well With:bananas, chocolate, blueberries
Brown Rice Protein is a really good alternative to dairy!
The Brown Rice Protein are very nice and easy to use.Goes Well With:beverages, youghurt, stirs....etc
I use this protein to add variety to whey protein. My impression is that using various sources of protein helps digestion and reduces bloating. This product is a great part of the mix. Goes Well With:whey protein shakes, green smoothies
I have been having bloating probs with whey protein so just got some of this brown rice protein was its not that bad to drink atall just havea glass of plain water to hand to wash your mouth out after its well worth it. It saves you getting bloated and gassey off whey
Brown Rice Protein isn't something that you will love eating but mixing a tiny bit of salt with it will evolve the flavour seriously. I mix it in a shaker with stevia, cinnamon and a dash of salt, 250ml water and 2 ice cubes.Goes Well With:Cinnamon, stevia, salt
This Brown Rice Protein works incredibly quickly and well, and has the perfect amounts of macro proteins needed for a well supplemented workout regime.Goes Well With:Scoop/Bottle and most importantly a workout session
I love this Brown Rice Protein. It's very highly recommended if you require a vegan alternative to whey or even if one wants to stay away from dairy products. The taste is average but that's fine as long as you mix it with water. It mixes easily and the results are easily visible after a few weeks of use.Goes Well With:Carbs/Fruit
This Brown Rice Protein is a top product. It smells a bit like flour, however, the taste is mild and the results are, if used correctly, extremely quick to come across. Overall, I'm very, very pleased with this protien.Goes Well With:Fruit/Pasta
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.Goes Well With:Tropicana mango and orange juice but I just mix it with water (and with pea protein)
Brown Rice Protein is very good, I am enjoying it.
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.
While the taste of Brown Rice Protein is very difficult to stomach with water or milk, I have noticed considerable gains using this product without bloating or flatulence. I put it in a smoothie of frozen berries, a banana, greek yoghurt, maple syrup and milk as my post workout shake. This hides the taste well. It has worked great so far and I will be mixing it 50/50 with pea protein in future.
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.
This is my first review, so I'll keep it quick and to the point. I don't get on with milk so I bought this with the intention of mixing it with water. Normally the taste doesn't bother me, but I simply couldn't drink this without wanting to gag. However - I've managed to get around this by adding a decent amount to some oats and soya milk. This is definitely the way forward if you can't stomach the taste. Just as good as whey protein when consumed this way!Goes Well With:blueberry & apple oats with soya milk.
The Brown Rice Protein is the best tasting raw plant protein on the planet, period. Combine with pea protein and you have dynamite! I love making shakes with this. My favourite recipe is a small can of white beans, 1/2 c. strawberries, 1 tsp. flaxmeal and 1 scoop (30g) of brown rice protein. You can even add more fruits. I like adding mango or pineapple.Goes Well With:Pea Protein, Hemp Protein, Oats
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. Goes Well With:Yoghurt, ground nuts/seeds, almond milk, smoothies, cocoa, cinnamon, honey
Brown Rice Protein is O. It doesn't have the best taste in the world but it seems like I've got used to it. The bigger issue than the taste is its texture, because it isn't creamy but a little bit sandy. It is better if consumed with more liquid.
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... Goes Well With:not much
We previously bought pea protein but found it needed a lot to cover the flavour in shakes. Whereas this Brown Rice Protein is a very neutral taste, just like brown rice, unsurprisingly! I have it in my porridge and can hardly taste it. It's not fishy at all, not like flax oil can be, I really recommend this stuff, my husband does too.
Great product. For me the taste is nice! I recommend the Brown Rice Protein.
Brown Rice Protein is a good product but the taste is very bad in my opinion.
Brown Rice Protein is brilliant, it mixes fairly well and doesn't stay suspended in the liquid that long. Adding flavour drops makes the drink taste okay. It doesn't bloat you like whey does.
I have only used this Brown Rice Protein for baking, so far (I mix it with gluten-free flour). It seems a good product, and the powder is very fine, which is an advantage.
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.
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.
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.
Being lactose intolerant and unable to digest a lot of foods this Brown Rice Protein has been a good help for my intake of protein. OK taste isn't great but when do you take protein shakes for flavour anyway. Goes Well With:any carb powders
Super protein without taste. High quality!Goes Well With:Other proteine
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.
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.Goes Well With:Banana Flav Drops, Rice milk
