To inspire health through food & empower people to be smart in nutrition.
Our ancestors’ diet was very different from us nowadays. They used to be having wide varieties of food choices in the wild and jungle while we eat mostly commercialised food. And the shocking truth is the top 75% of food come from only 12 plants and 5 animals. The concentration around just a few foods makes our food system less resilient to modern illnesses and threats like disease, pests and climate change.
In 1990s, fast-food companies and soft drinks started to sprout and expand globally until today. We see diabetes epidemic surge drastically and continue to affect the health standard globally.
In 2013, our founder’s sister-in-law was diagnosed with brain cancer, glioblastoma – a type of deadly cancer that has an average of half a year lice balance once diagnosed. Doctors reminded the family to consume brown rice as it is one of the best food for human being. Another year later, our founder’s uncle has diagnosed with oesophagus cancer. Both defeated in cancer battle and these incidents have triggered the founder’s passion to look into human health and source for food that we believe to be the best medicine for any human diseases.
That’s where the idea for NutriBrownRice® came from. We have then discovered the wonders of brown rice such as the cancer-fighting nutrients like manganese, vitamin E and vitamin B6. NutriBrownRice® – a food solution that your body is seriously lacking and it can be prepared in less than a minute.
