VANCOUVER, BC and KIBBUTZ YIFAT, ISRAEL / ACCESSWIRE / September 23, 2022 / Beyond Oil Ltd. (CSE:BOIL) ("Beyond Oil" or the "Company"), a food-tech innovation company extending the life of frying oil, reducing costs and waste, is pleased to announce that it has received a non-objection letter from the Israel Ministry of Health ("Israel Ministry of Health") dated September 22, 2022, in respect of the proposed use of Beyond Oil's product as a filter aid for the filtration of frying oils in the growing Israeli food market.
The Company previously announced that it received a non-objection letter from the US Food and Drug Administration and a non-objection letter from Health Canada for the use of the product in the US and Canada, respectively.
"The Israeli market is innovative, an early adopter, and is ready for our solution," said Dr. Tamir Gedo, CEO of Beyond Oil. "We are pleased to have reached another crucial step in the development of Beyond Oil's business. The Israel Ministry of Health certification leads the way to a new and significant market valued at more than US$6.6 billion1. We have already signed several sales agreements with leading Israeli food service chain franchisees, and we look forward to rolling out our product to additional Israeli chains and restaurants that are looking for new ways to significantly reduce their operational costs and join us in our journey toward a healthier future."
In 2016, Israel's food service sector was valued at approximately US$6.6 billion, with almost 13,000 consumer food service businesses in 20201. In recent years, the industry has experienced an increase in the price of raw materials, electricity, water, taxes, and manpower, forcing many food service chains and restaurants to seek out effective ways to reduce costs and stay profitable. Although employment and salaries have risen, price levels for menu items across Israel remain among the highest in the OECD, and together with the country's high cost of living, is leading consumers toward a cost-conscious food-service marketplace. As a result, today, there is a shift in consumer preferences towards eating out, with this trend reflected in the rate of household expenses for food services which stands at 5.3% and is ranked 26th among the OECD countries2.
Frying Oils Recovery: Extensive testing indicates that Beyond Oil's product extends the usable life of frying oil, improves product quality, and reduces frying oil costs. As a preferential adsorbent, the product reduces soluble impurities formed during the frying process that cause damaging free fatty acids ("FFA") and polar compound formation, undesirable odors, off-flavors, and off-colors. The product is simple to integrate into existing daily filtration processes.
One-of-a-Kind: To the Company's knowledge, Beyond Oil has developed a unique solution that can eliminate FFA almost completely without damaging oil quality. This solution compares to magnesium-based filter powders that have existed for years that can only marginally reduce FFA levels.
Patent Protected: The Company has a portfolio of registered and patent pending solutions that extend the shelf-life of produced and used premium oils.
Bottom-Line Savings: Beyond Oil's unique value proposition is that it could dramatically lower costs for quick service restaurants by significantly extending the useful life of the oil while retaining the original taste profile.
Distribution Ready: The Company received a non-objection letter from the US Food & Drug Administration ("FDA") in March 2022, on the basis that all the Beyond Oil product ingredients meet food-grade specifications of the FDA. In May 2022, Beyond Oil received a non-objection letter from Health Canada and a National Sanitation Foundation certification.
How Our Product Works
The Beyond Oil solution integrates with existing processes as a processing aid or as a filter aid. The process includes passive microfiltration designed to remove all components through a combination of active filtration by the powder and passive filtration by a microfiltration paper. This process ensures no residue is left in the oil while maximizing the efficiency of removing other degradation particles.
