Konjac Raw Materials Division
Next-generation products from konjac raw materials
Manufactured in a high-level manufacturing plant to ensure a stable supply of konjac raw materials (refined powder). While ensuring high quality and high purity mannan, we are also focusing on the development of konjac raw materials and products through our own research.
Development of konjac products
Good quality ingredients are indispensable for making safe, secure and delicious konjac products. The Material Division has been developing new types of ingredients based on the know-how we have cultivated. Today, we have developed "Timac Mannan" which cuts off the odor of konjac, and "AF Mannan" which is dissolved in water and aseptically packaged in a gel form. We are also contributing to the development of foods with an unprecedented texture, foods with functional claims using glucomannan, and foods for specified health uses.
Stable supply of konjac raw materials
Orihiro Material Co., Ltd. has a state-of-the-art raw material production line and is in charge of producing konjac raw materials. We have achieved a stable supply that meets the needs of our customers through an integrated system from drying raw potatoes to milling / polishing, compounding, blending, quality inspection, and low-temperature storage for longer shelf life.
