    I noticed that the only apo-lactoferrin that is available for sale online has rice flour in it:

    Is the rice flour okay? If not, then what brand has safe ingrediants?

    Also I have been using Life Extension’s R Lipoic Acid and it also has rice flour in in it.

    Thanks for your help

    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.

    I think that in this case its best to supplement with a meal (at the very beginning, so it would be digested as much as possible) that contains some antifungals (to fend off the candida from the rice flour?)

    p.s the amount of rice flour is less than 0.3g in 1 caps, therefore it should be utilized in the very beginning of the small intestine(where candida is usually absent)
