As great as an arsenal of quality supplements can be, there’s nothing like real whole food meals. In fact, Rich Piana believed that you should be eating several high-quality whole food meals a day if you want to make maximum progress.
However, we understand that the idea of prepping 3-4 meals a day doesn’t always work for a lot of people. Many people lead very active lifestyles and just don’t have enough time to prep or eat enough quality real food meals. Real Carbs Rice is an innovative whole food based product designed to help you get the nutrition you need to grow, easily and quickly.
Real Carbs Rice is delicious chocolate flavored real food carbohydrate powder that consists of Rice from RiBan® 300 Rice Bran, Tapioca Maltodextrin from TapiOK® and real Oats. This combination is primarily low glycemic and provides 22 grams of carbs per serving with 7 grams of fiber and 2 grams of sugar. Real Carbs Rice can be used several times per day and as a pre/post-workout meal especially if you combine it with our Egg White Crystals to create a complete premium quality meal.
Total Carbohydrates – 22 Grams per serving from:
RiBran® 300 Rice Bran – Rice is a cornerstone carbohydrate source for many bodybuilders and athletes. Usually, it’ll be brown rice because this type of rice is nutritionally complete and is low glycemic carb.(1)
The Glycemic Index is a value assigned to foods based on how slowly or how quickly those foods cause increases in blood glucose levels. Glucose is given a baseline value of 100 so as the number gets lower the slower a carbohydrate food digests. Real Carbs Rice uses RiBran 300, which is derived from the highly nutritious outer bran layers and germ of brown rice. Additionally, RiBran 300 Rice Bran adds the additional health benefits of fiber to the Real Carbs Rice formula.
TapiOK® Tapioca Maltodextrin – TapiOK® is a form of maltodextrin from 100% pure tapioca starch. It’s hypoallergenic, non-GMO, and certified kosher.(2) This natural form of maltodextrin is also a low glycemic carb that also adds a little sweetness to the delicious Cocoa Heaven flavor.
This version is different from the typical maltodextrin that’s derived from corn primarily because it’s not as heavily processed and supplies a more “natural” form of maltodextrin that meets the whole food requirements that were set by Rich Piana himself.
Oats – This is regular rolled oats which are another mainstay in the diets of many bodybuilders and athletes. Oats are a low glycemic carbohydrate that is also high in important minerals and fiber. The combination of these three carbohydrate sources creates an outstanding real food Carbohydrate Powder that sets a new standard in the industry.
The Cocoa Heaven Flavoring – There’s a reason why this is cocoa flavored. It’s no secret Rich loved Cocoa Krispy type cereals and the team at 5% wanted to create a carb product that could rival that delicious flavor. Word on the street is that we definitely succeeded! So if you’re a fan of Cocoa Krispy Cereal, one sip of Real Carbs Rice Cocoa Heaven and you’ll think you’re eating a bowl right now!
RiBran 300® Rice Bran – This product uses the outer bran and germ layer of brown rice and is a good source of protein, essential fatty acids, B-Vitamins, Vitamin-E, natural sugars, carbohydrates, and dietary fiber.
TapiOK® Tapioca Maltodextrin – This product is a type of organic maltodextrin derived from tapioca by a natural enzymatic process and is considered a superior form of maltodextrin over more synthetic versions.
