Entia Biosciences Receives Patent for Use of Ergothioneine in Foods and Beverages
Date:6/13/2012

SHERWOOD, Ore., June 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Entia Biosciences, Inc. (OTCBB: ERGO) (ENTIA) today announced that it has received a patent from the Nation of Canada covering the "Use of Ergothioneine as a Preservative in Foods and Beverages."  The new patent No. 2,680,223 expires on March 7, 2028 and has also been filed with the United States Patent Office and the European Union.  The food and beverage preservation patent is the first of the Company's many patent applications to issue and was invented by Drs. Marvin Hausman, MD and Robert Beelman, Ph,D.  Other patent applications awaiting approvals cover a number of health-related uses for Ergothioneine, including treatment of autoimmune diseases (arthritis, diabetes, alopecia, psoriasis), neurodegenerative diseases (Parkinson's and Alzheimer's), anemia of dialysis, traumatic brain injury and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 

Ergothioneine (Ergo) is an amino acid that is made in few organisms, notably filamentous fungi (mushrooms), and is considered a "master antioxidant".  Ergo is an electron donor that has been shown to neutralize free radicals and the oxidation processes that lead to cell death and the introduction of harmful toxins and chemicals to foods and beverages.  The addition of a synthetic or extracted Ergo can slow the rate of spoilage and extend the shelf life of a wide variety of products. Flavor is also enhanced when the company's 100% Organic ErgoD2™ mushroom-based whole food formulations are used.  In addition to being one of the primary natural sources for Ergo, mushrooms are also one of the few foods that stimulate the sense of Umami, a deliciously savory fifth taste quality (besides sweet, sour, bitter, and salty) discovered in the late 1800's by the great French chef Auguste Escoffier.  It is now known that humans have receptors for Umami, which is produced by several amino acids and nucleotides (such as glutamate and aspartate).
