Rice is one of the staple foods grown globally and one of the staples we know best. Rice contains nearly 64% of the nutrients of rice and more than 90% of the nutrients required by the human body. Therefore, it can not only provide energy, but also rich in nutrients. Among them, rice protein is a rare high-quality protein, which is in line with the ideal model recommended by WHO/FAO.
Why is rice protein quality recognized as the best in cereal protein?
Among cereal proteins, the biological value (B.V.) and protein value (P.V.) of rice protein are higher than other proteins. The amino acid composition of rice protein is balanced and reasonable, and the amino acid content is rich and diverse, which is unmatched by other vegetable proteins.
In addition, the biological value of protein and the composition ratio of amino acids in rice are higher than those of wheat, barley, millet, corn and other cereal crops, and the digestibility rate is 66.8%, which is a higher kind of cereal protein.
Compared with other cereal proteins, rice protein has higher biological value (BV) and protein utilization rate (PER), the biological value can be as high as 77, and the protein utilization rate is 1.38%-2.56%, ranking first among all kinds of grains.
The biological value of rice protein is also comparable to that of whitefish (biological value of 76), shrimp (biological value of 77) and beef (biological value of 69).
Rice protein can be processed into soy sauce, high-protein powder, protein drink, peptone, etc. If it is degraded into short peptides or amino acids, it can be made into amino acid nutrient solution with extremely high nutritional value, and can also be used in health drinks, condiments, food additives, etc.
Also expand the nutritional value of rice.
- Aid digestion
Rice soup has the functions of nourishing qi, nourishing yin and moisturizing dryness. The casein forms loose and soft small clots, making it easy to digest and absorb, so it is ideal to use rice soup to make milk powder or to supplement the diet for infants.
- Lower blood pressure
The high-quality protein contained in rice porridge and rice soup can keep blood vessels soft and achieve the purpose of lowering blood pressure.
