I like fitness, but I’ve never added protein to my food to help build muscle.
However, when you see rugby players using the stuff you realise it undoubtedly has benefits for those with a demanding training regime.
A new 100% Brown Rice Protein from Pulsin shows how nutritious extra protein can be. They use raw, sprouted grains to harvest nutrients from the rice at its most potent – the result is a protein powder that has a 98% correlation with mother’s milk.
It is made unflavoured and unsweetened without any artificial additives and, as a vegan, gluten free, dairy free, soya free protein powder, is suitable for almost any diet.
Comparing it to other protein powders it has more protein and fibre than your average whey protein and less fat than hemp protein, so, not bad if you’re looking for a healthier source of raw protein power.

I better stop before I get carried away!
