As the circumstances surrounding our eating habits continue to undergo drastic changes, the usage of wheat flour has expanded and the demands regarding its characteristics and quality have diversified.
We, at Chiba Flour Milling respond to these needs by approaching production from a customer point of view and delivering products with a consistent quality.

Here at Chiba Flour Milling, we have focused our research and development on the ability of saccharide fatty acid esters to turn oil-based substances into gels. Our Rheopearl series embodies these efforts and has been utilized in cosmetics and other industries for over thirty years. In recent years, we cultivated the esterification techniques we perfected through the Rheopearl line to develop and bring to market a resinous film-forming agent (UNIFILMA HVY) as well as an ester oil (Neocresce IPO). Moving forward, we will continue to explore the possibilities of saccharide fatty acid esters and strive to develop products that are useful to everyone.
Our research lab conducts R&D related to materials that give a new value to grain. It ascertains the needs of the marketplace and society, then coalesces those ideas into experiments and prototypes while coordinating with others, both inside and outside, of the company to make them a reality. In particular, the expansion of Japan’s aging society has provided us the desire in recent years to help people live healthier lives through nutrition. Our lab is currently involved in projects related to health, nutrition, and taste.
