    Rice doesn't have Proteins it has a few amino acids but not all of the necesary to have protein. Rice and Beans would give you proteins.

    Rice has protein. The body breaks down the protein in rice into amino acids. The issue with rice is that it is not considered to be a "complete" protein, in that when the body breaks down protein from rice, it does not contain all of the amino acids that your body is unable to produce from other amino acids.

    Fuck rice. I use hemp. It's still a whole food, as opposed to an isolated and then "fortified" or "enriched" variety such as rice, soy, pea. If that matters to you - which it should.

    i look at rice protein as having a moderate release time of about 1-3 hours. sort of similar to egg protein

    That's not the same as the nutritional profile of rice. That's the nutritional profile for their product. From their marketing blurb:

    Rice is generally deficient in lysine, which is why vegetarians tend to complement it with beans (which are high in lysine).
