5th July

July 16th-19th, 2023, Toronto, Ontario, Canada Booth #530

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA (July 5, 2023) – PURE Bioscience, Inc. (OTCQB: PURE), creator of the patented non-toxic silver dihydrogen citrate (SDC) antimicrobial, is set to unveil its “PURE Genius” food safety program at the 2023 International Association for Food Protection (IAFP) show in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on July 16th -19th, 2023.

The Company’s “PURE Genius” food safety program was developed to provide disinfectant solutions for all your food safety needs using the Company’s patented SDC molecule.  SDC, one of the most powerful antimicrobials developed in decades, is colorless, odorless, and non-irritating, which makes disinfecting quick, effective, and easy to use.  “Today, I’m honored to share PURE’s SDC products with IAFP members.  In my 20-year career as a sanitation professional, I’ve never seen anything like this technology.  When properly integrated into an effective sanitation program, PURE’s innovative solutions arm food safety and sanitation professionals with a disruptive technology that can enhance your food safety culture, modernize and transform the food industry, and be a much-needed game changer in preventing foodborne illness,” said Tim Steffensmeier, Vice President Food Division.

PURE Genius Products

PURE® Hard Surface rapidly eliminates bacteria, viruses, and fungi including Listeria, E. coli and Salmonella with kill times as fast as 30 seconds.  PURE Hard Surface disinfectant has been approved for use on food contact surfaces without requiring a rinse.  The non-irritating formula means no personal protective equipment is required, and the product meets the lowest Environmental Protection Agency hazard rating, which requires no first aid warnings.

PURE Control® is an antimicrobial food processing aid that quickly reduces pathogens including Salmonella, Listeria and E. coli on treated produce, berries and poultry.  PURE Control is an odorless, non-toxic solution that lowers the risk of cross-contamination and strengthens downline intervention steps, but is also used as a standalone processing aid.  There is no effect to texture, taste or color of treated food and no label declaration is required.

PURE® Multi-Purpose Hi-Foam Cleaner is an effective dilutable concentrate that produces long-lasting, high-density foam that can be adjusted based on specific needs.  The foam is easily rinsed without leaving a film.  Our unique formula was designed to complement the high efficacy of PURE Hard Surface, providing a synergistic effect.  It is non-corrosive, non-irritating and is suitable for use on all food and non-food contact surfaces including food processing equipment, spiral freezers, belts, conveyors, walls, floors, drains, and piping systems.

PURE® Multi-Purpose & Floor Cleaner was designed to complement the high efficacy of PURE Hard Surface in successful sanitation practices in food processing plants, transportation sanitization, and commercial kitchens where a high foaming cleaner is not desirable.  This is an economical concentrate that is easy to use, and rinses easily without leaving a film.

PURE® Multi-Purpose Hi-Foam Cleaner and Multi-Purpose & Floor Cleaner are environmentally responsible cleaning products, and are protected by SDC which ensures quality and safety without human or environmental exposure to toxic chemical preservatives.  Our non-toxic, environmentally responsible cleaners contain no EDTA, phosphates, ammonia or bleach and contain no VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds).
