Functional Technologies’ Acrylamide-Preventing Yeasts Show Well in Studies

Functional Technologies (OTC Other: FEBTF; TSX-V: FEB) reports that efficacy studies conducted on end-user materials, investigating the Company’s proprietary acrylamide-preventing (AP) yeast technology in a novel food application that traditionally does not incorporate yeast ingredients as processing aids, have demonstrated significant reduction of asparagine, the main known precursor in the formation of acrylamide. Moreover, the reduction was achieved with short contact times and decreasing yeast dose concentrations. Acrylamide is a chemical shown to be a mutagen (i.e. carcinogenic), as well as neurologically and reproductively toxic. Functional Technologies previously demonstrated that the ability of its technology to reduce asparagine has been significantly effective in preventing the formation of, and thereby reducing, acrylamide.
