NutraFuels, Inc. Tests Confirm High Quality Proprietary Ultra Shear Technology Platform

Coconut Creek FL, Feb. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — NutraFuels, Inc. fka NutraLife BioSciences, Inc. (OTCQB: NTFU) (NTFU) and Pressure BioSciences, Inc. (OTCQB: PBIO) (PBI) (together, the “Companies”), in a joint venture, today announce that analytical tests on Hemp-derived CBD oil processed by PBI’s Ultra Shear Technology™ (UST) platform confirm that: (i) UST processing results in the development of a true CBD oil nanoemulsion, and (ii) CBD is neither lost nor modified during the UST process (> 99% recovery).

The proprietary UST platform combines ultra-high pressure with extreme shearing forces to create very small, nano-scale mixtures of fluids that otherwise do not mix, resulting in a highly stable homogenized solution called nanoemulsions.

Dr. Vera Gross, Senior Scientist R&D at PBI, commented: “To determine if the UST process resulted in a loss or modification of CBD during processing, we enlisted the help of our collaborator NutraFuels, Inc. NTFU has an FDA-inspected, highly-qualified analytical laboratory with state-of-the-art equipment and well-trained chemists with years of experience in laboratory testing.”

For many oil-based nutritional and therapeutic products, such as CBD-infused nutraceuticals, nanoemulsions offer superior water solubility and increased bioavailability for improved absorption. Consequently, there is a significant need to develop reliable, scalable methods to process CBD oil into high-quality nanoemulsions, with minimal loss of CBD during the process.

Mr. Cooper Dodd, an R&D Scientist at NTFU, said: “Using a powerful laboratory method called HPLC to measure the concentrations of CBD and potential impurities, we determined that no appreciable amount of CBD was lost during the UST process. These results compare well to our standard processing method of ultrasonication, which can carry a risk of measurable loss of CBD, and sometimes create the appearance of impurities if not performed properly. While there is more work to be done, as a nutraceutical manufacturer with products already on the market, we see these results as a robust leap towards better optimization of our CBD-enhanced products.”

Dr. Gross, Director of Applications Development from PBI, added: “To determine if UST processing of CBD oil generates true nanoemulsions, we asked an independent, university-affiliated laboratory to determine the size of oil droplets in post-UST processed material using a universally-accepted sizing method called DLS. Their results showed that post-UST processed oil droplets were approximately 65 nm in size, well within the range of 20-200 nm generally accepted as defining a true nanoemulsion (Nano- and Microscale Drug Delivery Systems, 2017).”

Professor Keith Warriner, Professor of Food Science at the University of Guelph, and a recognized expert in the cannabis industry, commented: “The data disclosed today on UST-generated nanoemulsions of CBD oil are very impressive. Creating nanoemulsions of CBD oil with full preservation of CBD throughout the process, while not generating impurities, remains a significant challenge in the industry. These data offer great promise to the future.”

Professor Warriner continued: “Although there is great excitement over CBD-infused edibles and beverages, and rightfully so, I believe that CBD-infused topicals may be an even greater market for CBD products in the near future. However, to be successful, it is imperative that topicals be highly stable, bioavailable and readily absorbent nanoemulsions. After a review of the data released today, the UST process appears to be a leading candidate to fill that need.”

Dr. Bradford A. Young, Chief Commercial Officer of PBI, commented: “We were very excited to share the news just last week of PBI’s visually obvious successful production of water-soluble CBD Oil. However, the addition of these scientific validations of our successful achievement of creating nanoemulsions by the UST platform, and our preservation of CBD levels all the way through to the finished product are frankly the crowning touch to the news of these accomplishments.  We believe our proprietary Ultra Shear Technology will be a pivotal change agent strongly affecting the future of many major existing product areas, spanning foods, nutraceuticals, therapeutics, cosmetics, lubricants, paints, and other industries.”
