MARINA DEL REY, Calif., Sept. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- @AndreSoukMMA, aka, "The Asian Sensation," who trains and competes in the UFC using Axiom's organic brown rice protein featuring Oryzatein®, will be making a special appearance at SupplySide West on September 27 and 28, 2017. After being part of a "Plant vs. Animal Protein Challenge" in the Spring with the Lantana, Florida-based Combat Club, Soukhamthath is appearing to further the hugely trending conversation about plant protein being as good as animal-based whey protein. Andre will be signing autographs at Axiom's booth #L115 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and discussing his personal experience with food scientists, formulators and other attendees of the show.
"We want to do everything we can to support our clients' use of plant proteins in their formulations," said Axiom Food's CEO David Janow. "In 2013, a clinical trial showed that Axiom's Oryzatein® rice protein equaled animal-based whey in building and maintaining muscle. Today, we have a hard-core athlete in our corner describing how Oryzatein rice protein works with his professional performance. It's things like this that are starting to shatter the old gold standard of whey protein. We are on target to support the global food supply chain with plant proteins, as world population growth by 2050 is expected to force us away from animal sources."
