Fresh Promise Foods Announces Successful Validation of High Pressure Processed New Juices

Soon-to-Be-Launched Harvest Soul Organic Chewable Juice Posts Positive Safety Results From Clinical Validation Studies -- Seen as Fresher through Pressure™

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Oct 10, 2014) -  Fresh Promise Foods, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: FPFI), a Georgia-based natural and organic health and wellness company, announced today that Harvest Soul Organic Chewable Juices received validation from independent labs that high pressure processing (HPP), the technology utilized by Harvest Soul to achieve its "Fressurized™" difference, is successful in protecting the juices' high level of vitamins, nutrients and enzymes while destroying unhealthy bacteria and microorganisms. Harvest Soul Chewable Juices are unique in that they blend 100% organic vegetable and fruit juices with perfectly-sized nuts, seeds and berries to promote the act of chewing which fully enhances nutritious benefits by releasing often-missed essential vitamins, nutrients and enzymes.

Through a series of three independent lab tests, it was confirmed that HPP has met the FDA threshold of a 5-log reduction of all three major pathogens (E.coli O157:H7, Salmonella enterica and Listeria monocytogenes), typically found in organic products like Harvest Soul Organic Chewable Juices. The Company's environmentally-friendly Fressurized ™ process ensures that their hand-crafted juice blends will retain their "farm-picked" flavor, along with guaranteeing food safety, extending shelf-life and maintaining freshness, all without the use of chemicals or preservatives.

According to Kevin Quirk, CEO of parent company Fresh Promise Foods, Inc., "We've worked long and hard, and at great company expense, to ensure that our vitamin-rich chewable juice blends deliver great taste and unbelievable nutritive benefits, while focusing on food safety. We know that our Harvest Soul Chewable Juice Blends, with all the extra fiber and protein gained from crunchy nuts and seeds, will provide a more substantive eating and drinking experience -- something we like to call 'the Chewtrition ™ Revolution.'" Quirk continued, "Studies show that chewing kick starts the digestive process, releasing critical enzymes that help our bodies absorb essential nutrients, ones that are wasted when we mostly rely on drinking our nutrition."

Harvest Soul is working with legal counsel and anticipates a speedy regulatory path to production as all of the initial groundwork has been laid. The Company's equipment is poised for production, and after final Dept. of Agriculture approvals, should be producing product within the next 30-60 days, with a significant ramp up planned for the kickoff of the new year, targeting health and wellness initiatives.
