Rich Piana 5% Nutrition Real Carbs® Rice is a Complex Carbohydrate Powder using Rice, Tapioca Maltodextrin and Oats. Real Carbs® It’s a great choice for endurance athletes, or anyone that needs a quick meal!


Supplements are great. Used correctly, they can make a big contribution to your progress. However, whole food will always come first. Before you worry about supplements, you should make sure you’re eating several quality real food meals every day. This was one of the things Rich continually preached. 

Having said that, we understand that making 3-4 meals a day may not work for everyone. If you lead a busy lifestyle, you may find it impossible to make more than a couple of meals a day. Real Carbs Rice Legendary Series is an advanced whole food powdered Carbohydrate supplement created to help you meet your nutritional needs. After all, one of the keys to growth is eating enough calories, right? If you can’t make all your meals, you’ll fall short of your macronutrient goals. Bottom line, you won’t grow. Not to mention, if you’re an endurance athlete, you need a quick and easy source of carbs. A Carbohydrate Powder is the ideal solution, and Real Carbs® Rice Legendary Series is the best on the market. 

Real Carbs® Rice Legendary Series is chocolate flavored. Did we say chocolate? Yes, we did, and it’s delicious! 

This amazing product contains Rice from RiBan® 300 Rice Bran, plus Tapioca Maltodextrin from TapiOK®. There’s also real Oats. This is a low glycemic carb complex that supplies 22 grams of total carbs per serving. There’s also 2 grams of sugar and 7 grams of fiber. Real Carbs® Rice Legendary Series can be used throughout the day. Use it by itself or mix it with Shake Time. It’s an anytime of the day meal. It’s also great as part of a pre or post workout shake.

Total Carbohydrates – 22 Grams per serving from:

RiBran® 300 Rice Bran - Rice has been a bodybuilding staple for generations. It’s nutritionally complete. It’s also typically brown rice because that version’s low glycemic.(1)

What is low glycemic? That refers to the Glycemic Index. The Index is a numerical value assigned to carbohydrate foods. It’s based on how fast or slow these foods increase levels of blood glucose. Glucose has a baseline value of 100. The longer it takes a carbohydrate food to digest, the lower the number. A low number means the carb food digests slowly and does not cause a rise in blood sugar.

Real Carbs® Rice Legendary Series uses RiBran 300. This ingredient is derived from outer bran layers and germ of brown rice. This is the most nutritious part of the rice.

TapiOK® Tapioca Maltodextrin - TapiOK® is a form of maltodextrin. It’s 100% pure tapioca starch. This ingredient is certified kosher, non-GMO, and hypoallergenic.(2) It’s a version of maltodextrin that’s different from typical maltodextrin. That’s because TapiOK is not heavily processed. Also, it contains a “natural” form of maltodextrin.

This type of maltodextrin is natural and low glycemic. It also adds some sweetness to the delicious Crispy Rice-like Cocoa Heaven flavor. TapiOK Tapioca Maltodextrin lives up to the whole food standards originally set by Rich Piana.

Oats - This is simply regular rolled oats, just like your morning bowl of oatmeal. Of course, oats are a bodybuilding staple. They are low glycemic, and high in fiber as well as minerals.

These three sources of carbohydrates create an advanced whole food Carbohydrate Powdered supplement that redefines the Carbohydrate Powder category.

The Cocoa Heaven Flavoring - Finally, it’s time to talk about the taste. Why is it coca flavored? Simple. Rich absolutely loved Cocoa Crispy cereal. We’re talking obsessed with it! Therefore, the 5% Nutrition team wanted to create a Carbohydrate Powder that was capable of recreating that delicious Cocoa Krispy flavor. Guess what? We succeeded! If you like Cocoa Crispy Cereal as much as Rich did, one sip of Real Carbs® Rice Legendary Series and you’ll agree – it’s amazing!

It’s clear, Real Carbs® Rice Legendary Series is a cut above every other Carbohydrate Powder available. We use only whole food sources. Not to mention we created an amazing Cocoa Heaven flavor. Sounds delicious, doesn’t it? There’s no reason to wait, order yours today!
