End User Comments

User Comment 1

We add RICEO to our chocolate as it contains GABA (Gamma-aminobutylic acid). GABA has the effect of relieving stress and calming the mind, and it has been confirmed that it also helps people sleep well and lowers blood pressure. Therefore, it adds value to our product.

We are using RICEO in powdered drink mixes. Our reasons for choosing RICEO is that it is derived from rice bran, which enhances the image of our product, and that it doesn’t harden the powder and is easy to handle.
