Introduction of handled raw materials

Butterfly pea extract powder

Butterfly pea is known as a plant that produces a mysterious blue color. The beautiful blue color is a type of polyphenol, and it has become commonplace as a source of beauty in Thailand and Malaysia. Contract farmers handpick these flowers, which they cultivate without pesticides, carefully one by one, and then the product is developed after carrying out testing in line with Japanese quality.

Pinitol

This is a type of sugar alcohol found in carob and soybeans, and it is a natural material that has been used as a sweetener in place of sugar. It has a history of being used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes in the traditional system of medicine Ayurveda, and currently it is being researched worldwide in locations such as the United States, Spain, and South Korea. Pinitol acts as an insulin-like substance (with glucose transporter activity), so it is starting to be introduced in the blood-sugar-level countermeasure market as a new functional-claim-meeting material.
