  9. Does Ryza have added oils or other added fats?
    • No. Ryza is made using whole grain unmilled and unpolished brown rice. By using the whole grain the natural oils are retained, making it unnecessary to add other oils or fats to our beverage. That means Ryza is lower in fat than most other rice beverages that often have added oil.
