I noticed that the only apo-lactoferrin that is available for sale online has rice flour in it.
In the case of apolactoferrin, the rice flour acts as an excipient. An “excipient” is an inactive substance which must be used as a carrier for the active ingredient in a supplement or medication; otherwise, the main substance can’t perform the way it was intended. Common excipients used are starch, glucose, lactose, sucrose, malt, rice flour, dextrins, and even chalk. Rice flour is probably the least of these possible evils.
