RBT's MGI subsidiary currently produces a wide range of oat and barley products. This facility has the ability to process additional grains that are grown in the Red River Valley.
Stage 1 processing occurs at the rice mill. As soon as the bran and germ are removed from the kernel, RiceBran Technologies proprietary equipment begins the process of stabilization. A combination of heat, water, and pressure are used to deactivate the enzymes that cause rancidity in the rice bran. The stabilized rice bran is dried and packaged for shipment.
Stage 2 processing uses the stabilized rice bran from the stage 1 processing. Water and enzymes are added to the stabilized rice bran. The slurry is processed in a centrifuge to separate the insoluble fiber fraction, called RiFiber, and aqueous dispersible fraction, called RiSolubles®.
The products are dried and packaged in either bulk containers for finished food manufacturers and humanitarian relief or in canisters for retail consumer sales. A third product of the process, RiBalance®, is extracted prior to the centrifuge process. RiBalance® contains both the insoluble and soluble extracts, but in a more bio-available form.
