"Whey protein has been the gold standard of the fitness industry," said Axiom founder, David Janow, "but that may be changing. Intolerance to lactose affects nearly 70% of the world's population. Hormones used in cow farming are passed on in larger concentrations through dairy products than through cow meat. We've heard how hormones in cow milk is affecting early puberty. Soy protein is losing popularity after learning about phytoestrogens. Allergen-free plant-based protein is now being proven to rival whey protein."

"As a leading sports nutrition research facility at the University of Tampa, Department of Health Sciences and Human Performance, we've worked with NFL, MLB and IFBB athletes," said Dr. Jacob Wilson who oversaw the double blind study at the University of Tampa. "Rice protein can assist muscle adaptations in a way that was not scientifically proven until now."
