Quality Assurance

To maintain quality standards all the time, we have an exposed and fully automatic means of analysis during our production process. At every step, our quality control experts ensure a consistent quality of our syrups and solids. Our main strength is our in-house research and development department, where a dedicated group of scientists and engineers are continuously involved in enhancing the process flow and figuring the ways to widen our portfolio even further. Through our rigorous R&D efforts, Shafi Gluco-Chem aims to become one of the most diversified producers of cereal derivatives in the world.

Milling

The first step is to produce rice flour where rice is transferred from our climate-controlled silos to our milling section where rice flour is produced. When milling is done then it moves to the next step.

Slurry Preparation

The rice flour is then mixed with a predetermined weight of cold water to prepare a slurry. A controlled amount of alpha-amylase enzyme is then metered into the slurry for the subsequent hydrolysis of the rice starch. This process is known as slurry preparation. 

Filtration

The liquefied slurry is pumped into a set of plate & frame filter presses where the protein cake is retained in the filter, and the liquid effluent (rice soluble) passes through the filter and is collected in a receiving tank. This stage marks the separation of protein cake from slurry preparation.

Concentration

The syrup acquired after filtration is then passed through energy-efficient evaporation systems that are run under very high vacuum conditions. This concentrates the syrup and prepares it for the final stage.

Packaging

The Rice Syrup from the vacuum evaporators is pumped into a batch holding tank that is equipped with agitation to ensure lot uniformity. The final product is then packed into either 275-Gallon IBC Totes (plastic bag in corrugated box), HDPE Drums, food-grade pales, and tins.

Conclusion:

At Shafi Gluco Chem, we strive hard to provide the best possible products to our clients worldwide ensuring quality checks all the time. We produce a significant proportion of the rice in our own fields which ensures the consistent supply of quality rice from our ground and helps us pave the way towards organic Clean Label Certifications.
