Because it does contain all 20 amino acids including the 9 essential ones it is a complete protein and in the plant kingdom it one of the best due to the other essential co-factors contained in the food.

Organic Brown Rice Protein:
A high protein alternative to soy and animal products, our natural raw enzyme sprouted Organic Brown Rice Protein Concentrate has a silky smooth texture and higher protein content than other rice protein powders. Our Organic Brown Rice Protein has 82% protein content, improved taste and is more easily digested, hypoallergenic and a vegetarian/vegan source of protein. Ideal for those with gastrointestinal sensitivity to milk, wheat, soy and other proteins. Organic Sprouted Brown Rice Protein is gluten free, vegan and contains no milk, soy, wheat, eggs, corn, yeast, herbs, preservatives, coloring or anything artificial. This protein is made using an all natural process that does not involve the use of chemical solvents.
Japanese studies presented at a United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization symposium in 2004 indicate that sprouting rice by soaking it in warm water for 8 to 24 hours can increase fiber by as much as four times, B vitamins and magnesium by as much as three times and gamma-aminobutyric acid (or GABA) by as much as 10 times. Sprouting whole grains breaks down their phytic acid, which hampers the absorption of minerals, like the magnesium, calcium and zinc in rice. Decreasing the phytic acid makes these important minerals more bioavailable to your body.
What makes this product so exciting is that through both fermenting and sprouting it may actually allow you to digest, absorb and utilize the protein and amino acids from the rice. Traditionally grains would need to be combined in order to get the most out of the protein found in the grain. This process of sprouting and fermenting allows it to be a stand alone product.
Organic Pea Protein:
Our Organic Pea Protein contains over 5 times the amount of Arginine as compared to whey protein . Arginine, or L-arginine, is an amino acid that is needed to keep the keep the liver, skin, joints and muscles healthy. Arginine may help support a healthy immune system, and blood sugar response. In addition, research has shown that this amino acid may support healthy circulation. Large concentrations of arginine are found in the skin, and this amino acid plays a key role in the health of all the body's connective tissues, particularly the muscles. Arginine helps the body process both creatine, a natural substance that helps build muscle mass, and nitrogen, a chemical needed for muscle metabolism.Arginine has also been shown to help support the body’s ability to heal and repair damaged tissues.
