Most health enthusiasts know it is more beneficial to eat brown rice than white rice. Brown rice by itself is rich in minerals such as iron, zinc, manganese, calcium, selenium, phosphorus, magnesium and potassium. It also contains natural fibers that help digestion. Brown rice fits in perfectly with an Active Wellness lifestyle. But have you heard of brown rice solids?
Brown rice solids are basically functional protein ingredients that are processed from sprouted brown rice following organic methods. When the rich protein content that is distributed between the bran and endosperm layer is concentrated and dried, brown rice solids are generated. They provide a high level of naturally occurring nutrients, such as potassium and magnesium.
But what is the significance of the brown rice solids in the new formulation of our Kenzen Ten4® Energy Drink Mix? When a formula contains only four ingredients, each one plays a vital part in the efficacy of the product. Brown rice solids play an important role in the drink mix, not only for taste but to replace synthetic vitamins.
- Brown rice solids are hypoallergenic, have a mildly sweet taste and are easily digestible.
- Brown rice solids contain essential and non-essential amino acids and are a quickly oxidized natural energy source.
- Brown rice solids provide a sustained supply of energy without experiencing the symptoms of low-blood sugar that can impede performance.
- Brown rice solids contain a wealth of vitamins, including B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B6 (folate) vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol) and vitamin K. Vitamins B and E are known for their energizing properties and vitamin K is important in its support of bone health.
Only four ingredients make up Kenzen Ten4®. As with labeling protocol, ingredients appear in descending order: Organic matcha green tea powder, organic brown rice solids, kiwi powder (fruit), organic stevia extract (leaf).
Even if you’ve never heard of brown rice solids before, Nikken has done the research to ensure you have access to the best in food technology.
