Our story goes back to 100 years ago, where it all began with rice. Through every generation our appreciation of the rice grain blossomed.
Today, in our 4rd generation, we know all about rice. More importantly, We are more than just rice producers, but a responsible and devoted team that cares about the environment, food waste, and value creation. For decades, we are seeking maximizing the benefit we can get out of the amazing gift from nature; the rice grain.
We successfully developed simple, sustainable, clean label, and plant-based ingredients that solve different industry challenges, and enhance food and beverage products value from rice and rice by-products. Instead of being wasted due to technological limitations, they become “Incredibly edible”, or simply, “Incr-Edible.
Rice is planted using lots of water. Therefore, the soil and water are carefully chosen to produce low heavy metal rice varieties that are safer than the average rice varieties. The result is safer, healthier, and more consumable rice byproduct ingredients, Incr-Edible.
Out of hundreds of different rice varieties, we pick 3 unique ones that satisfy our special nutritional value, low heavy metals content, and taste delicious for our customers.
When it's time, our well taken care of rice departs the land for the first time and starts the first step of creating value added products
Transport to warehouse
To ensure freshness and reduce our carbon footprint, our rice mill and rice by-products production facility is located in the middle of the Nile delta, where our low heavy metals rice is planted
Upon arrival to the production facility, every batch goes through a quality check to ensure freshness, safety, and fulfillment of the standards we promise our customers.
The first step is sorting. This is when the rice grain is separated from any possible remains of plant, soil, or other undesirable foreign materials
Now the rice goes through a 2-step hull removal process. Where the first removes the outer golden husk of the rice grain, and the second removes the inner rice hull, where most of the health benefits of the rice is concentrated
Raw rice by-product
The inner rice hull, or "bran", the most nutritionally dense part, is now separated and needs to be treated within a period of six hours to stop the enzymatic reaction that normally occurs within untreated rice bran
The rice bran then undergoes a second quality check to ensure the purity and absence of impurities or other remains of the rice grain
This is where the magic happens. Instead of a six hours life span, using only thermal treatment, the rice bran becomes consumable for 12 months; and that's why it's "Incr-Edible". Because it's incredibly edible!
Based on different particle sizes or "fineness" demanded by our customers for different usages, our rice bran is graded accordingly.
A final check is carried after all the processes are complete before the bran is loaded to the trucks and starts the trip to our customers.
