Axiom Foods’ Brown Rice Products are Melamine Free

Los Angeles, California, April 30, 2007 – Axiom Foods, Inc. (“Axiom”), the world leader in food grade whole grain rice protein extraction technology for human consumption, has announced that there is NO evidence that any of its products have been contaminated with melamine and melamine related compounds. Axiom had all of its products tested by three independent laboratories using the most current testing methodology used by the Food and Drug Administration.

Axiom is committed to offering the highest quality food grade whole grain brown rice protein concentrates in the market today as alternative hypo-allergenic replacements for soy and whey proteins. Axiom felt that it was their responsibility to assure their customers, even though they were not named in connection with the current recalls of feed grade rice protein, that NONE OF THEIR FOOD GRADE PRODUCTS CONTAIN MELAMINE, AMMELINE, AMMELIDE, CYANURIC ACID or any other similar compounds related to such recalls. We will continue to test all our products and will reflect such status on all certificates of analysis going forward.

Axiom Foods is an international leader in the manufacture and development of Rice based products for the beverage, nutraceutical, and specialty foods industries. They produce rice protein concentrates (Oryzatein™), rice sweetener syrups (Oryzose™), and rice sweetener powders (Oryza™). Through its trade secrets and proprietary technology, they have been able to develop the first viable whole grain brown rice protein alternatives called the Oryzatein™ line, which offer complete amino acid profiles, are superior in taste, hypoallergenic, vegan, gluten-free, kosher, non-GMO, and maintain the highest level of nutrients available. Their rice based sweeteners Oryzose™ and Oryza™ are healthy alternatives to that of high fructose corn syrup and corn syrup solids and can be used interchangeably, while offering the same benefits as our Oryzatein™ line. Through the extensive research and development of Oryzatein™, they have been able to develop Oryzatein Silk™ which offers a smooth consistency that is great for beverage use and nutritional drinks. They are dedicated to expanding their current product line and will soon be offering a rice milk powder alternative called Oryzalife as a direct replacement for whole milk powders.
