Development of new rice cultivars having high resistant starch (RS)

Starch Technologies Co., Ltd. (ST) is a venture company which was founded by two scientists expertized in starch biosynthesis in rice endosperm in February, 2019. Based on our investigations, we have developed 3 new rice cultivars having modified starch structures and hence functional properties. We are focusing on the practical utilization of a new cutivar named “Manpukusurari” for various food and industrial applications, because it contains a high resistant starch by approximately 10 times higher than that in the usual japonica-rice cultivars. With a close cooperation between Gunma Seifun Co., Ltd., new goods such as breads and needles using Manpukusurari as starch materials are expected to be launched in the near future.
