Speciality in riceWho we are

SAGE V FOODS, LLC. (pronounced Sage Five) specializes in producing rice based ingredients for use in processed foods and has developed the most complete line of rice products in the industry. In addition to industrial markets, the company’s line of frozen rice is also sold into the food service and retail markets.

The company has very close relationships with key suppliers of rice (two of the three largest mills in the southern growing area) in both Texas and Arkansas where its plants are located very close to their mills. Sage V Foods has direct access to all types and varieties of U.S. rice from both the southern and California  rice growing areas as well as foreign grown rice. The company contracts directly with farmers to grow specialty varieties of rice and organic rice.

Our History

The company was founded by Pete Vegas in 1992 as a subsidiary of American Rice/Comet Rice (a large rice milling company) and initially operated under the name Comet Rice Ingredients. The company was formed to create innovative new applications for rice and develop new rice products to meet those needs. The company is not a rice miller.  It purchases milled rice or milled broken rice and then further processes that raw material. The company started with rice flours and then expanded into pregelatinized flours, specialty varieties of rice, instant rice, frozen rice, and more recently crisp rice. In October of 1998, management bought the company from American Rice, Inc. and renamed the company Sage V Foods. The original production facilities were in Freeport, Texas. Since that time, Sage V Foods built an additional flour milling and extrusion facility in Stuttgart, AR, in 2006, and then expanded that same plant in 2008. In July of 2009, the company completed construction and started up a new state of the art facility in the Port of Little Rock, AR. to produce frozen rice and instant rice. The new Arkansas plants are designed to meet the strictest new food safety standards

Rice Flours

We produce a wide variety of flours that differ in functionality, viscosity and gelatinization temperatures. Our flours work great in a wide variety of products from crackers and chips, to soups and sauces.

Product Options

Long Grain Rice Flour (22% amylose) Commonly known as standard rice flour.  Used in cereals, chips, and snacks to provide a crispy texture.  Used in coating applications and many of the clear coatings currently found on french fries. Used in extrusion operations (rice crispies).

Medium Grain Rice Flour (18% amylose) Can be used in the same applications as long grain flour, but provides a lighter texture and a little more expansion when puffed.  It is more resistant to starch retrogradation than long grain and therefore is used as a thickener in some high moisture applications.

Pregelatinized Rice Flour
RF-GL1080: Less degree of cook and sheatable.
RF-GLX080: Higher water absorption, higher degree of cook, tend to be tacky.

Rice Flour Mixes Mixes are provided for extruder operations (salt, malt, and sugar for a rice crispy mix).  Stabilized bran is mixed with white rice flours to produce brown rice flours.  Various rice flours are mixed to provide unique functionality.  Custom mixes are available.

Packaging Options

Bulk totes, 50 lb bags

Crisp Rice

Extruded crisp rice is used in hundreds of different food products.  It is a very functional ingredient that provides crunch and bulk, and is often used to replace many high cost ingredients such as nuts and grains.  The most common uses of crisp rice include: nutritional bars, baking, prepared foods, ready-to-eat cereal and snack products.

Product Description

Extruded crisp rice has a mellow character. Its bland flavor, as well as consistent color, shape and size allow formulators to use as much, or as little, as they would like to achieve the desired texture and taste.  It adds significant value to any product in the form of increased bulk, flavor and crunch, so that your product will easily maintain its crunch and texture.  Sage V Foods supplies various sizes and types of extruded crisp rice for just about any type of product.
