Most protein bars on the market are produced using cheap quality soy as a major source of protein. Soy isoflavones act as the steroidal estrogen in the body and hold the risks of natural estrogens, according to the Sprecher Institute at Cornell University.
GBG uses rice protein in it's protein bars and here are some of the reasons why:
Rice protein powder is a natural protein source with natural fiber. It is derived from brown rice and carries all of the essential amino acids.
Rice protein powder is also hypoallergenic, meaning that it causes fewer allergic reactions than other protein powders. It is also free of soy, milk, yeast, wheat, and other allergens that often cause allergic reactions.
The body utilizes rice protein powder more efficiently than soy.
Rice protein powder is vegan friendly. No animal products or byproducts are included in rice protein powder.
The natural flavor of rice protein powder is sweet and mild.
