PURE Bioscience says antimicrobial achieves strong in-plant testing results
PURE Bioscience that PURE Control antimicrobial processing aid achieved strong results during recent in-plant testing on poultry parts. FDA and USDA approved PURE Control eliminated Salmonella and generated up to a 2.7 Log reduction in bacteria when applied in a dip tank on poultry parts. In a production environment, PURE Control eliminated Salmonella, a result current chemistries are not consistently achieving. In addition, PURE Control generated up to a 2.7 Log reduction in bacteria, which is superior to results typically provided by current processing aids. In previous laboratory testing on poultry parts, PURE Control generated a 3+ Log reduction in bacteria. PURE is especially encouraged by the 2.7 Log reduction, as it is rare to achieve results in an operating environment that are as strong as the results obtained in controlled laboratory conditions. During calendar Q4, PURE expects that the poultry processor conducting the tests will continue with several more rounds of optimization and validation in-plant testing. Anticipating successful completion of its in-plant work, PURE looks forward to this processor becoming the first customer to order and use PURE Control for parts processing. Additional processors are preparing to initiate their own optimization and validation in-plant testing in calendar Q4.
