The Health Benefits of Pea and Rice Protein

The Health Benefits of Pea and Rice Protein

Rice and pea protein are a good lactose-free alternative to whey protein. But what exactly are the health benefits of pea and rice protein?

Both pea and rice proteins are prized for being complete protein sources, meaning they are easy to digest and carry little to no risk of allergic reactions. In addition, they contain all 9 essential amino acids. The body cannot produce essential amino acids itself, but they are essential for the proper functioning of the body. 

Amino Acid Profile

It is good to know that pea and rice protein complement each other perfectly in terms of amino acid profile. Pea protein contains a low content of the amino acids cysteine ​​and methionine, but a high content of lysine (important for growth functions in the body). Rice proteins contain a low content of lysine but a high content of cysteine ​​and methionine (important for protein synthesis in the body). Together they provide an optimal amino acid profile that is superior to any other plant-based protein source. As an added bonus, they are dairy-free and easy to digest.

Below you will find an overview of all the benefits of both protein sources:
