Rice protein, unlike other vegetable proteins, isn't lacking in any of these key building blocks for protein with a balanced amino acid profile comparable with whey and much better than soy. Whey and soy however, are associated with allergies and sensitivities. Whey is made from dairy by-products and may create issues with lactose sensitivities. Many whey fans also report unwanted problems such as excess gas, bloating, and digestive issues.
Soy contains phytoestrogens that mimic the human hormone and cause problems. Soy allergies are also very common. Rice, on the other hand is very hypoallergenic. Rice is the perfect source for protein that won't upset stomachs; result in bloating, or cause allergic reactions. Rice protein is safe for vegans and vegetarians who want to avoid animal products including whey, casein, and egg. But they aren't the only ones to benefit. Rice protein isn't just for vegans, but supplies ample protein and complete amino acids for anyone at any activity level or with any lifestyle.
