  • Rice Syrup Program Expands, Further Impacting People and Planet

    Ciranda and Matco Foods Expand Partnership

    HUDSON, WI (June 12, 2019) Ciranda, Inc. partnered with Matco Foods last year to deliver a new reliable source of organic brown and clarified rice syrups to the North American market — with a focus on sustainability and farmer prosperity. After a successful market introduction, the companies have expanded the rice syrup program to include additional dextrose equivalency (DE) levels, while continuing to increase their social and environmental impact.

    In January and April, Matco Foods and Ciranda focused efforts towards tuberculosis (TB) eradication by organizing TB screening camps where nearly 400 of Matco’s staff and area rice farmers were screened and given a digital chest x-ray. Tuberculosis is a contagious bacterial infection that is curable and preventable. According to the World Health Organization’s Global Tuberculosis Report 2018, TB is prevalent in Pakistan with over 350,000 estimated new or relapsed cases each year. The country is ranked in the top twenty countries for TB and multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) globally, making Pakistan a high-burden country. Early detection is critical for preventing this curable disease and increasing the chance of survival for area rice growers.

    Also this year, Matco Foods completed the installation of solar panels on the rice syrup manufacturing facility in Karachi, Pakistan, with a projected annual estimate of 308 metric tonnes per year in CO2 emissions reduction. This is equivalent to the CO2 sequestration achieved by planting 15,376 trees per year.

    Rice syrup supplied by Ciranda and Matco Foods is produced in a state-of-the-art glucose syrup facility. The program now includes organic brown and clarified rice syrups in DE 27, 42, 45 (high maltose) and 60. Conventional non-GMO rice syrup is also available, offering the same social project benefits to improve the livelihood of rice growers in the rice belt of Pakistan.

    Ciranda is a trusted supplier of certified organic, non-GMO and fair-trade ingredients with expertise in gluten-free flours and starches; syrups and sweeteners; cocoas and chocolates; coconut products; fluid and powdered lecithins; and sustainable oils. The employee-owned company was founded in 1994 with headquarters in Hudson, Wisconsin.

    Matco Foods is a family-owned agribusiness with over 50 years’ experience in the rice industry. The company employs over 500 people. They are proud to be the largest basmati rice exporter in Pakistan and a leading rice exporter globally.

  • It’s official! The gluten-free industry’s new rising star is organic green banana flour! Bananas naturally contain starches which convert to simple sugars during ripening. Using green, unripe fruits produces a flour with a high percentage of starch for additional functionality. Organic green banana flour is an excellent choice for muffin, cake and pancake mixes; extruded puffs, snacks and cereals. Green banana flour is known to contain resistant starch (type 2).

    A FOOD WASTE SOLUTION

    Grocery markets desire bananas of a certain size, shape and ripeness, which puts bananas at the top of the list for food waste according to the Food and Agriculture Organization.
