Brown Rice Protein and Whey Isolate
Brown rice protein and whey isolate blend for complete amino acid profile. We blended these two together for a fiber and protein blend that provides all the Bcaa's for muscle development as well as a complete protein for meal replacement. We opted for a "non-vegan" bar for the perfect protein balance as whey is a bi-product of dairy -and whey protein isolate is 90% protein with the majority of fats and lactose removed. It may be safe to say it is in a non-dairy state, however as a derivative of milk, it cannot be claimed "vegan"
