How It Works

Nutra-Iso®: Unlocking the nutritional power of rice bran.

While rice bran is one of the most powerfully nutritious foods in the world, until recently, its full nutritional power has been locked away from human use.

Because rice bran turns rancid rapidly, it is typically unavailable for human consumption. Even when stabilized, the human digestive system cannot properly process its nutrients.

The principals of Sustainable Nutrition International helped pioneer proprietary technology that successfully extracts the nutraceutical (medical food) isolates from rice bran to create Nutra-Iso®—a bioactive rice bran derivative with significantly enhanced antioxidant, carbohydrate, protein and miocronutrient levels. Essentially, Nutra-Iso® technology elevates rice bran to its highest form of bioavailability for the human digestive tract.

SNI is using Nutra-Iso® in pilot public/private partnerships in Guatemala and Central America as part of its chronic malnutrition remediation program. Further clinical studies are currently underway.

We use three formulations of Nutra-Iso®: one for pregnant mothers, one for lactating mothers, and one for infants 6-36 months old. This addresses chronic malnutrition during the critical physiological and cognitive development phases, before it can do irreversible damage. Properly administered through early intervention, Nutra-Iso® can remediate the potential e damage caused by chronic malnutrition in infants.

On the individual level, Sustainable Nutrition International remediates chronic malnutrition in at-risk children and pregnant mothers. Our larger goal is to transfer Nutra-Iso® technology throughout the world, providing communities now suffering from the debilitating effects of chronic malnutrition with truly transformative public health and socioeconomic benefits.
