Rice: a protein source?
Although many people may be used to thinking of rice as a carbohydrate, it is an excellent source of protein as well. It is even possible to separate the rice protein from the carbohydrate fraction. Jarrow Formulas’ Brown Rice Protein is extracted using an all natural process that does not use chemical solvents. The process involves brown rice being treated with enzymes that separate the carbs from the proteins. These enzymes are considered vegan and the processing of rice in this manner is considered a “raw food” technique. The rice proteins are then milled into a powder.
Plain, unflavored rice protein powder has a neutral, slightly sweet flavor that many find superior to soy. However, when mixed into liquid it typically has a “gritty” mouthfeel that some find objectionable. This is not a problem with Jarrow Formulas’ Brown Rice Protein, for which a special milling process is utilized to produce an ultra smooth texture that mixes better and is less gritty than traditional rice protein preparations.
Why brown rice?
Some individuals may have concern about the nutritional value of rice protein since it is not ordinarily a complete protein. However, Jarrow Formulas’ Brown Rice Protein utilizes the protein from both the bran and the germ of the rice grain, collectively providing a complete amino acid profi le. This includes lysine and methionine, which are important essential amino acids often lacking in vegetable source proteins and white rice. Jarrow Formulas’ Brown Rice Protein is specially processed to allow protein quality scores exceeding 100% for almost all the amino acids in the product. In addition, research shows that rice protein is highly digestible.
Brown rice protein safety
Research has demonstrated that brown rice protein is extremely safe, and lacking in acute toxicity. While there are isolated cases of allergy to raw rice, in general it is considered non allergenic, or hypoallergenic. Furthermore, Jarrow Formulas Brown Rice Protein comes from a non-GMO rice source.
A genetically modified organism (GMO) is an organism whose genes have been altered through genetic engineering, typically referred to as recombinant DNA technology. There is controversy over the negative ramifications of creating a GMO, particularly a genetically modified food. The controversy includes concerns that:
1) GMO is meddling with biological states or processes that have naturally evolved over long periods of time,
2) modern science does not fully comprehend all of the potential negative ramifications of genetic manipulation,
3) conventionally bred crop plants can be cross-pollinated (bred) from the pollen of modified plants, and
4) there could be unforeseen local and global effects caused by transgenic organisms proliferating.
While these issues are sorted out, concerned customers will be pleased to know that Jarrow Formulas Brown Rice Protein utilizes non-GMO rice.
In one study conducted by the Arkansas Children’s Nutrition Center, weanling rats fed mostly rice protein diets were more likely to demonstrate greater sensitivity to insulin, which promotes blood sugar and overall metabolic health. The researchers concluded that there may be benefit to deriving some protein from vegetarian sources, such as rice protein, in addition to that from meat, dairy and eggs.
In another animal study, the feeding of rice protein led to healthy arteries, suggesting value for promoting cardiovascular function.

Why can resistant starch improve your blood sugar balance?
Among the most popular good intentions we have before the new year starts is to improve health and lose weight.
Sadly, for many of us, those good intentions fall by the wayside within as little as 1 or 2 weeks. The main reason for failing on any given diet is that it tends to be a too drastic change in how we tend to eat.
Which for most of us, tends to be a moderate to high-carb diet, which for most Dutch people tends to revolve around bread and potatoes. That will make it very hard if you want to make a switch to a low-carb diet as is the norm these days.
However, I've got good news for you! You may not need to give up on all of your carbs. Instead, you can try to switch from carbs that have a negative impact on your blood sugar balance, towards slow-acting carbs also known as ... resistant starch.
Even when you are quite happy about eating a (very) low-carb diet, there are still ways to increase the amount of resistant starch in your diet, without drastically increasing the amount of calories and 'net carbs'.
Therefore the article below will tell you everything about resistant starch you need to know.
How much protein do we really need?
How to prepare for a quarantine such as COVID-19
Like most of you, we have been following the news on the COVID-19 virus pandemic closely since early January.
With a rapid increase of both infections and people who have been in contact with infected persons, the amount of people who need to go into quarantine, rapidly increases too. Never mind how the entire population in Italy is forced to stay inside with more countries to follow soon.
With ever stricter rules in place, people suddenly realized they are not prepared for events like this, and started buying goods left and right without much of a plan.
Like most of you, I have also not given this much thought, so it stands to reason to go take a look in the USA where 'prepping' for disasters is popular, and rightly so because of the more dramatic weather conditions. Because people in North America generally live much further away from supermarkets and do not always have access to good tap water and electricity power may go off for longer periods of time,most advice given is superfluous for our society where power outages are rare and tap water reliable.
Hence that part of the advice was omitted in the article below.
What is quarantine?
The main rule of quarantine is: "nobody comes in and nobody goes out". If you are in quarantine, you are distancing yourself from people aside from the ones in quarantine with you, like your family or roommates. The reason for this is to stop the spread of an illness or possible illness.
How to love your body?
With all these standards for beauty, it’s easy to plummet into a spiral of body-hating. Don’t succumb to the pressure! Love your body, no matter what!
Body shaming is, sadly, a trend these days. You have songs that hate on the skinny girls because “real women have curves.” Then you have songs about shaming people who don’t happen to have the body type of a Victoria’s Secret model. We all know that no one is perfect, but there are still some people who insist on telling people how they should look, how they should act, what size they should be, what their hair color should look like.
Everyone has the right to love their own body. Whether you’re skinny, fat, tall, short, missing a limb, dark-skinned, pale-skinned, what have you, every single body in the world deserves to be loved. It’s just a shame that so many people insist on hating on their bodies, simply because they don’t conform to the unrealistic standards set by society.
Why should I care about meal frequency?Why should I care about eating several times a day? A straight answer is, because it works!
It works if you wish to burn fat and maintain a good muscular attractive physique when you are over 40. Back in 2009 I was pretty darn fit and strong and in the best shape of my life while eating small meals five to six times a day and working out right after work around 7pm.
