ORGANIC PEA & RICE PROTEIN POWDERS

The Plant Powered Movement

For many years, rice and peas have been combined as a staple food in America and regions surrounding the Caribbean. They are a simple, inexpensive source of protein and micronutrients, with a number of health benefits.


Although present in whole foods, protein can also be isolated in powdered form and used as a supplement. This practice began in the 1950’s alongside the bodybuilding scene, where most powders were based on eggs or whey.


As more and more research highlights the health benefits of consuming plant-based foods, we are starting to see a trend towards plant-based protein powders, and rice and pea protein powders are leading the way. Subtle in taste, pea and rice protein can be applied in wide variety of products, from simple nutrition supplements and shakes, to protein bars and meal replacements.


Although some plant proteins are lacking in certain essential amino acids needed by the body, when combined together, pea and rice protein form a complete amino acid profile. Rice only contains small amounts of the amino acid lysine, but pea protein steps in to make up for the deficit. 



Versatile Plant Protein

Superfood Ingredients’ Organic Rice Protein Powder is a non-allergenic protein source that is easily digested. Before processing, our Organic Pea Protein Powder goes through a fermentation process, which increases the bioavailability of the proteins. The protein content of both powders is minimum 80%, and both are certified organic and free of toxins. The powders are highly soluble, making them a great addition to shakes, smoothies and soups. They also work well in cereal bars, protein bars and meal replacements.



Some of the Benefits of Pea Protein and Rice Protein Powders

Both pea and rice powders present a wide range of health benefits. Not only are they useful as high protein sports supplements, they can make a great addition to a range of food, beverage and health supplement applications with a focus on good quality protein.


Sports nutrition

Physical training leads to the breakdown of muscle tissues. The body then uses dietary proteins to provide amino acids for muscles repair. When combined together, rice and pea proteins provide all the essential amino acids needed by the body. Developing high protein products using pea and rice protein powder may provide an effective way to enable athletes to reduce recovery time post workout, thereby increasing their training frequency, allowing them to improve their skills and fitness at a faster rate.  


Allergen friendly

Both the rice and pea protein powders are hypoallergenic, being gluten-free, dairy-free, and non-soy. This makes them a great alternative to whey and soy-based proteins, which leave some people feeling bloated, gaseous and nauseous after consuming. Both our powders are certified organic and free from artificial colours and sweeteners that are also know to cause similar allergic reactions.  


Easily digested

Whilst some protein powders such as whey can cause bloating and discomfort in some people, Superfood Ingredients’ plant based sources are easily digested. Rice protein is highly bio available, meaning that it does not take much effort to break it down and absorb the amino acids. Pea protein also has also been shown to be one of the most highly digestible protein sources. Before processing, our organic powder goes through a fermentation process that further increases its digestibility.


Nutrient dense

As well as being a good source of highly digestible protein, both the organic pea and rice powders contain a wide range of beneficial micronutrients. Our pea protein contains iron, a mineral that plays an important role in cell growth and oxygen transportation. The rice powder provides a range of B-vitamins, which play an important role in cell metabolism, as well as Vitamin E, which acts an antioxidant that can reduce oxidative damage by the build up of free radicals. 


A greener choice

Superfood Ingredients’ rice and pea protein powders are vegan. Plant foods have been shown to have less of an environmental impact that animal-based foods, requiring significantly less land, water, and energy to produce.  One study suggests that each day, a person who opts for a plant based diet can save 1100 gallons of water, 45 pounds of grain, 30 sq ft of forested land, and 20 lbs CO2 equivalent, compared to someone who chooses to consume animal based products.

The role of protein in recovery and tissue repair has long been recognised, particularly in the world of sports nutrition. In recent years there been a movement away from the traditional animal-based protein powders, towards plant-based alternatives, including rice and pea protein. As well as being hypoallergenic and presenting a range of health benefits, when the supplements are combined they present a complete protein source, crucial for maintaining a fully functioning body.
