RibusST. LOUIS--Ribus® Inc. (www.ribus.com) announced the expansion of its patented, rice-based ingredients line to include certified organic, NOP-compliant and OMRI brand list categories.Our unique, patented ingredients are functional ingredients that the food industry uses to address specific production challenges, said Steve Peirce, Ribus president. It became obvious that organic producers needed ingredients that could provide functionality and enhance manufacturing efficiencies. To that end, Ribus pursued organic certification over four to five years for its full product line. Now, my dedication is to making Ribus a dominant ingredient supplier to this important, multi-faceted industry.Ribus uses a patented enzymatic technology to the nutrient-rich bran to produce certified organic ingredients. The technology produces a rice bran extract in powder form that is soluble in water and easily mixes with other ingredients. The companys branded products, Nu-Bake®, Nu-Rice® and Oryza-Mul offer a clean label declaration while providing improved manufacturing efficiency, productivity and profitability. Nu-RICE is a processing aid for the production of cereals, pasta and snacks, as well as a lecithin replacer in many applications. Nu-BAKE serves as a dough conditioner and volumizer, while improving both shelf and freezer life. Both ingredients have important implications in the low-carb and functional food categories, according to the company. Oryza-Mul, the newest ingredient in the Ribus line, is targeted for personal care and cosmetic products. It is hypoallergenic and its emulsification capabilities enable the retention and translocation of moisture into the skin.
