CNP - California Natural Products

Three decades ago, CNP invented rice syrup and rice syrup solids. Since then, we have remained the predominant thought leader and innovator in this space. We use this vast experience to develop a wide variety of food products to achieve your goals. 

CNP rice syrups are made from white or brown rice, natural rice, or organic certified rice in a variety of dextrose equivalencies (DE’s) and carbohydrate structures. Our rice syrups and solids are made from whole rice, a process we invented. 

With much of the original rice left in the syrup, the added fats and proteins improve the way that our rice syrups interact with water, thus improving the humectancy and shelf life of each product. This makes the end-product more nutritious and more functionally powerful than carbohydrates alone. 

While developers of conventional food products need to add chemicals to improve humectancy and mouthfeel, rice syrup and solids from CNP do this naturally. 

Rice Syrup Quality and Safety

All CNP ingredients are manufactured in a commercial-grade sterlization facility. This eliminates potential food borne pathogens. We also minimize employee contact, keepint our machinery and environment sterile. 

As an industry leader in rice syrups and solids, we strive to deliver quality ingredients to the brands that rely on us. CNP's rice syrups and solids are all manufactured to order based on the specific needs of each customer.

We are uniquely positioned to offer our clients raw materials from the ingredients side of our business, product development for aseptically processed food and beverage products, scale-up trial runs as well as manufacturing.

Since we were founded in 1980, we have been an innovator in the development of aseptic beverages, foods and food ingredients. We enjoy helping manufacturers bring their products to market faster and easier. We have a proven track record of success in the nutritional, natural and organic food industries. For example, we invented and patented the natural processes for rice syrup, rice syrup solids, and rice milk in the early 1980’s.
