AgriFORCE Growing Systems Ltd. (NASDAQ: AGRI) BREAKING NEWS: AgriFORCE Growing Systems Announces Definitive Agreement to Acquire Food Production & Processing IP from Manna Nutritional Group (MNG) – AgriFORCE Growing Systems Ltd. (“the Company”), an innovative AgTech company focused on developing and acquiring agriculture IP that advances sustainable cultivation and processing for crops across multiple verticals, announces that it has entered into a material definitive agreement to acquire the intellectual property (IP) from Manna Nutritional Group LLC (MNG), a privately held firm based in Boise, Idaho. The IP encompasses patent-pending technologies to naturally process and convert grain, pulses and root vegetables, resulting in low-starch, low-sugar, high-protein, fiber-rich baking flour products, as well as a wide range of breakfast cereals, juices, natural sweeteners and baking enhancers. The core process is covered under a pending patent application in the U.S. and key international markets.
This all-natural process is designed to unlock nutritional properties, flavor and other qualities in a range of modern, ancient and heritage grains, pulses and root vegetables – creating specialized all-natural baking and all-purpose flours, sweeteners, juices, naturally sweet cereals and other valuable products, providing numerous opportunities for dietary, nutritional, performance and culinary applications.
Key identified advantages of this production process: The Company’s independent lab testing indicates that MNG’s soft white wheat baking flour contains up to 46% fiber, 23% protein and only 8% starch, which results in 45 times more fiber, up to 3 times more protein and provides only 11% of the starch found in standard/commercial all-purpose baking flour.
The resulting products deliver a significantly lower carbohydrate content than conventional processed flour-based food products and are designed to provide significantly higher levels of plant-based protein and natural fiber in addition to other nutrients and enzymes – without compromising taste, texture and quality.
Ingo Mueller, CEO of AgriFORCE, stated, “This acquisition is the next step in our comprehensive strategy to leverage IP to produce more sustainable, natural and better-quality food, medicine and plant-based products. Imagine being able to eat much healthier bread, pasta, cereals and a range of other products made from wheat, seeds, pulses and legumes – that also taste good.” He added: “By capturing even a small portion of the overall flour market with our own brand and through relationships as an ingredient supplier, we believe this IP represents an opportunity that could transform the landscape of food production across a multitude of categories.” CONTINUED… Read this full release for AgriFORCE Growing Systems at: https://ir.agriforcegs.com/
