  • Low nutritional content:  Despite being a drink that provides interesting amounts in some vitamins and minerals, it is especially important to have low protein, calcium and B vitamins. Therefore, the best option is to cover this intake with other foods, or with Rice drinks enriched. For example, a glass of cow’s milk provide about 8 grams of protein, however the rice milk provides only 2 grams.
  • Diabetes:  The rice drink is not suitable for people with diabetes, especially because of its high glycemic index as it is rich in starch.
  • Not suitable for infants and toddlers:  At this time we are facing the heated debate between the relationship between arsenic and rice. It is known that the rice drink may contain low amounts of arsenic that will not be harmful in adults when its consumption is not excessive. However, it is precisely for this reason that it is not recommended for infants and young children, even when the consumption is low.
