Protein is a major nutrient of food and has long been studied for nutritional and utility value. Among them, rice protein is attracting attention because of its hypoallergenic characteristics and nutritional value. Rice proteins are divided into endosperm protein and bran protein depending on their location. The two proteins differ in their nutritional characteristics and applications. The endosperm protein is an insoluble protein and has an advantage of digestion and absorption. Rice bran protein dissolves well in water. Its amino acid value is high enough to be comparable to that of soy protein, and it has strong antioxidant ability. Rice protein is a healthy vegetable protein because of its health and hypoallergenic properties. It has been widely used in children's or patients' food, and recently for muscle supplement and health food. Rice protein is considered to be a very effective and useful material as it has been discovered so far.
