MissionCreating value by transforming the world’s underutilized agricultural resources into nutritional foods and nutraceuticals.

4 4 Rice Bran Background Rice is the primary food source for over 70% of the world Once milled, rice bran quickly becomes rancid and is unfit for human consumption Raw rice bran is mostly sold as animal feed 8 - 10% of the rice kernel contains the majority of the nutritional value with many health benefits NutraCea’s foundation is its proprietary technology to stabilize rice bran Approximately 60 million metric tons of raw rice bran is produced globally as a by-product of the milling process With stabilization, this underutilized resource is now available for human consumption

6 6 Domestic Operations Capacity utilization is subject to seasonal variances in supply and availability

7 7 RBO – Production Process / Defatted Rice Bran (Brazil)

8 8 With rice grown in over 100 countries, NutraCea had to look globally for the ideal location to process rice bran oil. Pelotas is the “heart” of South America’s rice growing region. This pristine geographical location enables us to produce the highest quality rice bran oil available. NutraCea has clearly perfected rice bran oil! International Operations

21 21 Numerous benefits of using Rice Bran Multi-functional ingredient for a wide variety of applications including but not limited to: Meat Batter and breading coatings Soy, starch, mustard and other ingredient replacement Functional Cook yield, texture and purge improvement Non-allergenic – gluten and lactose free Clean flavor All natural Oxidative stability Antioxidant and vitamin rich Economical, US origin USDA approved for meat products

22 22 All natural foods Natural food must contain natural ingredients No phosphates allowed No conventional nitrates/nitrites Limit on some antimicrobial ingredients Growth of health and wellness foods

23 23 Each year, millions of Americans have allergic reactions to food. Although most food allergies cause relatively mild and minor symptoms, some food allergies can cause severe reactions, and may even be life-threatening. There is no cure for food allergies. Strict avoidance of food allergens — and early recognition and management of allergic reactions to food — are important measures to prevent serious health consequences. Food allergens

24 24 Symptoms of food allergies typically appear from within a few minutes to two hours after a person has eaten the food Allergic reactions can include: Hives Flushed skin or rash Tingling or itchy sensation in the mouth Face, tongue, or lip swelling Vomiting and/or diarrhea Abdominal cramps Coughing or wheezing Dizziness and/or lightheadedness Swelling of the throat and vocal cords Difficulty breathing Loss of consciousness Symptoms of allergic reactions
