RFI ~ FermaPro

BLAUVELT, NYRFI released its new FermaPro® line of fermented ingredients, including cereal grasses, vegetables, fruits, spices and seeds. RFI ferments, drum-dries and mills the ingredients in its state-of-the-art facility. Fermented foods offer health benefits such as improved digestibility and nutrient absorption, according to Jeff Wuagneux, president and CEO of RFI.

An example of how fermentation improves digestibility is the fermentation of cereal grasses," Wuagneux said. While ruminant animals such as cows and horses have a separate gut compartment filled with lactic acid microorganisms to digest the cellulose, humans cannot digest cellulose. Fermenting cereal grasses with lactic acid microorganisms may help break down cereal grasses and make them more digestible."

RFI provides products, services and solutions for the dietary supplement, food and beverage industries. The company expanded its Loveland, CO facility in December, and acquired Alta Quality Nutrition, a Modesto, CA-based contract manufacturer, in November.
