VANCOUVER, BC and KIBBUTZ YIFAT, ISRAEL / ACCESSWIRE / June 28, 2022 / Beyond Oil Ltd. (CSE:BOIL) ("Beyond Oil" or the "Company") is a food-tech innovation company extending the life of frying oil, reducing costs and waste, is pleased to announce that, following its news release dated March 22, 2022, a testing and pilot program (the "Pilot Program") of Beyond Oil's product by Joey's Franchising Ltd. ("Joey's") has successfully been completed.

"During my thirty-five years in the restaurant and food service industry, we have tried all the products we could find to extend the life of our frying oil, and Beyond Oil's product is the only one that has delivered," said Joe Klassen, CEO of Joey's. "Most restaurants have to change their frying oil every three to seven days, but after completing our Pilot Program in a working restaurant, we can confirm Beyond Oil's formulation can extend the life of frying oil up to 14 days."

"We are pleased with the results of Joey's Pilot Program in a working restaurant environment," said Dr. Tamir Gedo, CEO of Beyond Oil. "In today's inflationary environment and with the increased costs of frying oil, Beyond Oil's product offers a solution to reduce frying oil costs by up to C$23,000 per year per restaurant outlet. We look forward to supplying Beyond Oil's product to Joey's and other restaurants and the food service industry in North America through TEJA Food Group under our newly signed distribution agreement."

The Pilot Program was conducted in Calgary, Alberta, from June 1, 2022, to June 14, 2022. The oil was used for frying food in the ordinary course of business, and the Beyond Oil powder was added to the restaurant's oil filtration process at the end of each of the 13 days of testing. The oil was tested twice per day for free fatty acid ("FFA") level by an affiliate of Joey's during the Pilot Program, with the FFA remaining below regulatory standard at the start of each of the 13 days of testing. An independent laboratory confirmed the results on day 13.

Product Highlights

About FFA: FFA is the by-product of frying foods in oil, increasing over time as the total amount of food is fried in the same batch of oil. FFA is the element in fried foods that contributes to fat build-up in the human circulatory system. Frying oil is absorbed into the foods - the higher the FFA levels in the oil, the more FFA is absorbed.

The Beyond Oil powder improves the clarity and color of the frying oil in the filtration process and reduces the FFA present to near zero. For the consumer, this means the restaurant using Beyond Oil powder is starting its frying day with quality oil with an equivalent FFA of fresh oil. For the restaurant owner, this means less money spent on frying oil, which has recently doubled in price. For the environment, there is less waste oil disposed.

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 causes damaging 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 but that only marginally reduce FFA levels.

Patent Protected: The Company has a portfolio of registered and patent-pending solutions that it expects will extend the shelf-life of produced and used oils.

Bottom-Line Savings: Beyond Oil's unique value proposition is that it could dramatically lower costs for quick-service restaurants by extending the life use of the oil significantly while retaining the original taste profile.

Regulatory Clearance: As described in the news release dated March 23, 2022, Beyond Oil has received a non-objection letter from the US Food & Drug Administration ("FDA") to sell its product in the United States, on the basis that all the Beyond Oil product ingredients meet food-grade specifications of the FDA. As further described in its news release dated May 30, 2022, Beyond Oil received a similar non-objection letter from Health Canada.

How Our Product Works
The Beyond Oil solution integrates with existing processes as a processing aid or filter aid. The Beyond Oil process includes passive microfiltration designed to remove all components through 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.
