LOS ANGELES – Hemp infusion technology company MCTC Holdings this week announced a new class of hemp infusion technology designed to replace alcohol in many beverages. The infusion will be marketed under the Company’s Hemp You Can Feel brand name and adds to MCTC’s growing portfolio of intellectual property, which currently includes four patent pending technologies. The company said it expects to file multiple additional patent requests.
“The formulations and delivery vehicles our researchers have developed are nothing short of spectacular,” said MCTC CEO Arman Tabatabaei. “While the technology is based on hemp extracts, levels are many magnitudes lower than are typically seen in the marketplace. In fact, certified laboratory testing utilizing High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) certified undetectable levels of hemp extracts and cannabinoids. Simply put, we believe this is a revolutionary technology for the marketplace and a legitimate replacement for alcohol in many beverages.”
Hemp You Can Feel can be used as the basis for a host of beverage and food formulations, providing relaxation the negative health effects of alcohol consumption, the company said in a statement. According to MCTC, the expected label will be ultra-clean, non-GMO and 100% natural. Manufacturing occurs at room temperature to ensure all the natural enzymes present in the organic portions of the ingredients are preserved. MCTC believes Hemp You Can Feel creates an entirely new category of infusion technology for foods and beverages based on natural ingredients.
Hemp You Can Feel utilizes no chemical surfactants or stabilizers and requires no high shear processing, sonication, spray drying or other harsh extract manipulations, all of which are common legacy processing technologies. Additionally, the technology contains no artificial colors, dyes, or preservatives and most importantly, there is no detectable hemp taste. The company is currently capable of producing Hemp You Can Feel at high volume in powerized form. A liquid concentrate has also been developed, which is pending final laboratory and formulation testing.
MCTC plans to use the technology as the basis for products it plans to introduce over the coming months. Additionally, the company plans to license the technology and “white label” produce products at its Los Angeles production facility.
“We were fortunate that our researchers were able to work with a major food ingredient manufacturer that provided the exact expertise and associated non-GMO technologies allowing us to complete the last piece of the research puzzle,” said Tabatabaei. “This development was most certainly an interdisciplinary success based on extensive collaboration between our researchers and others in the food sciences industry.”
MCTC said the company and its unnamed research partner have recently filed four patents on hemp extract technologies and delivery systems.
