Axiom Food's Oryzatein® Becomes First Rice Protein Ever To Earn GRAS Approval

CULVER CITY, Calif., April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On the heels of a 2013 double-blind clinical trial which proved Axiom Food's Oryzatein® plant-based brown rice protein equals animal-based whey in building and repairing muscles, Oryzatein has now become the very first brown rice protein to be granted GRAS approval.

The GRAS approval, standards of which are set forth by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), is an acronym, which specifically recognizes a substance as Generally Recognized As Safe, under the condition of an intended use.  The final evaluation was signed by all members of an expert panel headed by Jim Heimbach, formerly of the FDA and USDA and specialist on issues regarding the regulation of food ingredients. The achievement of GRAS status represents the gold-standard affirmation of an ingredient's safety.  The GRAS recognition of Oryzatein was confirmed based on scientific method, corroborated by extensive history of use, and agreed-upon by the third-party appointed panel. GRAS approval demonstrates Axiom's superiority in tests of safety regarding how it's processed, the product's constituents and exposure to consumers.

Oryzatein is a 100% natural, whole grain brown rice "clean label" protein fractioned without use of hexane petroleum byproduct, unlike many other rice and soy proteins. The approval was granted for the use of the plant-based protein as a high quality allergen-free protein in food grade products as both replacement for, and in conjunction with, soy and whey protein. Oryzatein is used in beverages, baked goods, confectionery, dietetics, nutraceuticals, product substitution, sports nutrition and other products needing functional properties.

"Since 2005, we've worked hard to source rice from the most pristine fields in the world," said CEO, Axiom Foods, David Janow, "we've also co-founded the World Rice Alliance, innovate healthful fractioning processes, are the only brown rice protein with third-party clinical research and have attracted the scientific community to use our products in their research. Additionally, we were the innovator of melamine-free and hexane-free brown rice protein when no one else was adhering to those standards.  This GRAS approval gives our customers another reason to insist on "Oryzatein® Inside."

Axiom Foods is the most innovative source for allergen-friendly, whole grain brown rice ingredients, including rice non-dairy milk powder, and known for their natural and proprietary methodologies for extracting fractions of other plant proteins such as pea. Since 2005, the California-based company has maximized the potential of whole grain brown rice in all its forms. Their signature Oryzatein® is the first and largest source of organic brown rice protein.. Axiom continues to widen the possibilities of the world's third largest plant crop into healthful products on which humans thrive.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
