Kirei Board
KIREI(TM) BOARD is an engineered panel product of the company Kirei USA, constructed from the left-over, post-harvest stalks of the sorghum plant. Its manufacture is more involved than that of particle board , as the stalks are first woven tightly and then heat-pressed with an adhesive. Designed to be strong, lightweight, environmentally friendly and sustainable, Kirei Board is intended for wall coverings , cabinetry, furniture, flooring and other decorative and finished products. The word kirei (JP 奇麗/きれい;IPA ) is a Japanese adjective possessing a range of meanings: beautiful, clean, pure and truthful. In some applications, Kirei Board is used as a decorative material in its own right (featuring its visually distinctive grain), while in others it is used as a building wood in cabinets and shelving, then covered with a veneer of another wood. As it is a soft material, Kirei board is not indicated for flooring in high traffic areas

Fermentation (food)
FERMENTATION IN FOOD PROCESSING is the process of converting carbohydrates to alcohol or organic acids using microorganisms —yeasts or bacteria —under anaerobic conditions. Fermentation usually implies that the action of microorganisms is desired. The science of fermentation is known as zymology or zymurgy. The term fermentation sometimes refers specifically to the chemical conversion of sugars into ethanol , producing alcoholic drinks such as wine , beer , and cider . However, similar processes take place in the leavening of bread (CO2 produced by yeast activity), and in the preservation of sour foods with the production of lactic acid , such as in sauerkraut and yogurt . Other widely consumed fermented foods include vinegar , olives , and cheese . More localised foods prepared by fermentation may also be based on beans, grain, vegetables, fruit, honey, dairy products, fish, meat, or tea

Distilled
DISTILLATION is the process of separating the components or substances from a liquid mixture by selective evaporation and condensation . Distillation
Distillation
may result in essentially complete separation (nearly pure components), or it may be a partial separation that increases the concentration of selected components of the mixture. In either case the process exploits differences in the volatility of the mixture's components. In industrial chemistry , distillation is a unit operation of practically universal importance, but it is a physical separation process and not a chemical reaction . Commercially, distillation has many applications

Millwork (building Material)
MILLWORK BUILDING MATERIALS are historically any woodmill -produced building construction interior-finish, exterior-finish, or decorative components. Stock profiled and patterned millwork building components fabricated by milling at a planing mill can usually be installed with minimal alteration. Today, millwork also encompasses items that are made using alternatives to wood, including synthetics, plastics, and wood-adhesive composites. CONTENTS * 1 Specifics * 2 Historical context * 3 Fabrication * 4 Uses * 5 Types * 6 References SPECIFICSMillwork building materials include the ready-made carpentry elements usually installed in any building. Many of the specific features of the space are created using different types of architectural millwork: doors, window casings, and cabinets to name just a few. The materials used in millwork items today are most often graded-lumber , code compliant fasteners , various glasses , and other decorative coatings and finishes

Dietary Reference Intake
The DIETARY REFERENCE INTAKE (DRI) is a system of nutrition recommendations from the Institute of Medicine (IOM) of the National Academies (United States) . It was introduced in 1997 in order to broaden the existing guidelines known as Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs, see below). The DRI values differ from those used in nutrition labeling on food and dietary supplement products in the U.S. and Canada, which uses Reference Daily Intakes (RDIs) and Daily Values (%DV) which were based on outdated RDAs from 1968 but in the U.S. have been updated as of 2016

Taxonomy (biology)
TAXONOMY (from Ancient Greek τάξις (taxis ), meaning 'arrangement', and -νομία (-nomia), meaning 'method ') is the science of defining and naming groups of biological organisms on the basis of shared characteristics. Organisms are grouped together into taxa (singular: taxon) and these groups are given a taxonomic rank ; groups of a given rank can be aggregated to form a super-group of higher rank, thus creating a taxonomic hierarchy. The principal ranks in modern use are domain , kingdom , phylum (division is sometimes used in botany in place of phylum), class , order , family , genus and species . The Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus
Carl Linnaeus
is regarded as the father of taxonomy, as he developed a system known as Linnaean taxonomy
Linnaean taxonomy
for categorization of organisms and binomial nomenclature for naming organisms

Microgram
In the metric system , a MICROGRAM or MICROGRAMME (μG) is a unit of mass equal to one billionth (6991100000000000000♠1×10−9) of a kilogram , one millionth (6994100000000000000♠1×10−6) of a gram , or one thousandth (6997100000000000000♠1×10−3) of a milligram. The unit symbol is μG according to the International System of Units . In μg the prefix symbol for micro- is the Greek letter μ (Mu) . The recommended but questionable symbol in the United States when communicating medical information is MCG. ABBREVIATION AND SYMBOL CONFUSIONWhen the Greek lowercase “μ” (Mu) in the symbol μg is typographically unavailable, it is logically replaced by the Latin lowercase “u”.

Milligram
The KILOGRAM or KILOGRAMME ( SI unit symbol: KG) is the base unit of mass in the International System of Units
International System of Units
(SI) (the Metric system ) and is defined as being equal to the mass of the International Prototype of the Kilogram (IPK, also known as "Le Grand K" or "Big K"). The avoirdupois (or international) pound , used in both the imperial and US customary systems, is defined as exactly 6999453592370000000♠0.45359237 kg, making one kilogram approximately equal to 2.2046 avoirdupois pounds. Other traditional units of weight and mass around the world are also defined in terms of the kilogram, making the IPK the primary standard for virtually all units of mass on Earth

International Unit
In pharmacology , the INTERNATIONAL UNIT is a unit of measurement for the amount of a substance; the mass or volume that constitutes one international unit varies based on which substance is being measured, and the variance is based on the biological activity or effect, for the purpose of easier comparison across substances. International units are used to quantify vitamins , hormones , some medications , vaccines , blood products , and similar biologically active substances. The name INTERNATIONAL UNIT has often been capitalized (in English and other languages), although major English-language dictionaries treat it as a common noun and thus use lower case. The name has several accepted abbreviations
