This new rice product will help you have a longer life
Batangas-based BiotechJP Corp. has launched a set of precooked, ready-to-eat rice products that will give you a longer life.
A subsidiary of a Japanese company, BiotechJP has launched Echigo, a precooked, protein-reduced rice intended mainly for people with chronic kidney disease, a report in ABS-CBN showed.
“Our product is rice, and for Filipinos, ‘rice is life’. So, our chairman, Kiyosada Egawa, sees a big market here,” BiotechJP general manager Trisha Ann Garcia said in the report.
Egawa’s main company is Biotech Japan Corp.
Right now, BiotechJP is now working on the commercial distribution this year of three other products.
These are Insta Rice (regular, precooked rice that only needs to be microwaved), Gohan Lite (calorie-reduced precooked rice, also for reheating), and Rice-to-Go (ready-to-eat rice that can be consumed without heating).
Garcia said the products are licensed by the government’s Food and Drug Administration and have shelf lives of either six months or one year.
