Our factory is located in Central Java, Indonesia.
Teguh Susielo started to make ragi 1952 and then established \"SL\" Ragi Tape company in 1955.
Ragi is yeast cake used as a starter to ferment different types of carbohydrates.
Our RAGI is especially used to make traditional sweets known as \"TAPE\" (in Indonesia) or \"TAPAI pulut\" (in Malaysia). Sometimes it is referred as Peuyeum (from Sundanese language).
\"TAPE\" or \"TAPAI\" has sweet or sour alcoholic taste and can be used directly as a food or in traditional recipes. Tapai can be made from a variety of carbohydrate sources, but typically from cassava, white rice, or glutinous (sticky) rice.
TAPE or TAPAI has a sweet flavor with amounts of alcohol, somewhat resembling Japanese sake in essence. Alcohol content is mostly dependent on fermentation process or duration. Alcohol may range between 6% to 10%. Sweetness with amounts of spirit of alcohol are the main features in the taste and aromatic experience of tape.
RAGI is also used as a starter for brewing Brem [=Rice wine] in Indonesia.
RAGI is a natural-starter similar to what sourdough starter is for preparing sourdough bread. Many of our clients have fermented many varieties of sweet potatoes or cassava with ragi, and have discovered that wonderful culture-products with interesting textures and flavor can result.
Our factory can produce \"RAGI\" minimum 750,000 pcs/month.
We have exported our \"RAGI\" to Europe (Netherland) and planning to expand our bussiness/export all over the world.
