NEW YORK, March 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SurePure, Inc. (OTCQB: SURP) a global leader in liquid photopurification, announced today that Tamarack Biotics has completed a self-affirmed "Generally Recognized as Safe" (GRAS) approval for its TruActive™ NF product.
The process adopted by Tamarack Biotics has at its heart SurePure's patented 'Turbulator™' technology. As announced on December 1, 2016, Tamarack entered into a right to purchase SurePure units.
Generally recognized as safe (GRAS) is an American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) designation that a chemical or substance added to food is considered safe by experts, and so is exempted from the usual Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) food additive tolerance requirements.
"We congratulate Tamarack Biotics on achieving GRAS approval for its novel food ingredients," said Guy Kebble, CEO of SurePure.
Bob Comstock, Tamarack Biotics CEO, stated, "SurePure's technology has proven invaluable in enabling us to retain the natural compounds found in raw milk. Additionally, SurePure's technology has proven as effective as thermal pasteurization in ensuring the safety of our dairy-based food ingredients, which enabled us to achieve GRAS status. We look forward to completing our factory in anticipation of supplying the world's first commercial product containing significant quantities of immune active proteins."
SurePure is a global leader in liquid photopurification, the green alternative to pasteurization and chemicals. Using its patented 'Turbulator™' technology, SurePure systems use UV-C light to purify microbiologically sensitive liquids such as wine, fruit juice and milk. Although designed to deliver food-grade solutions, it can also be harnessed to improve processing liquids such as water, brines and sugar syrup solutions, even animal blood plasma. SurePure's technology offers greater microbiological efficacy than conventional UV systems and is effective for both clear and turbid liquids, a world first. SurePure offers a greener alternative to comparable heat or chemical-based processes and significant process and energy savings. It also provides opportunities for the development of innovative and differentiated products with desired consumer benefits, guaranteed food safety and sound commercial benefits.
