Date:10/7/2008

VANCOUVER, Oct. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Burcon NutraScience Corporation (TSX-V: BU) announced today that its Puratein(R) and Supertein(TM) canola protein isolates are GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) for their intended use in a variety of food and beverage applications. The products have been self-affirmed GRAS through an independent evaluation by a panel of qualified experts in the fields of food safety, toxicology, nutritional sciences, food allergies and pediatric nutrition. Burcon's Puratein(R) and Supertein(TM) are the first canola protein isolates to have attained GRAS status in the United States. GRAS status permits Puratein(R) and Supertein(TM) to be marketed and used in a variety of mainstream foods and beverages for human consumption.

Puratein(R) and Supertein(TM) are expected to participate with soy, dairy and egg proteins in the multi-billion dollar global protein ingredient market. Protein ingredients are valued for both their nutritional qualities as well as their functional applications in foods and beverages.

Puratein(R) is a canola protein isolate with functional properties that include emulsification, gel formation, thickening, formation of heat-stable foams, and water- and ingredient-binding. Applications for Puratein(R) include dressings, meat substitutes, baked goods and protein bars, among many others.

Supertein(TM) is a canola protein isolate with functional properties including excellent solubility, the ability to form transparent solutions and foaming. Applications for Supertein(TM) include beverages, confectionery, aerated desserts, and protein bars, among many others. Nutritionally, the proteins are equally exciting with unique amino acid profiles.

"Achieving GRAS status is a major advancement in the commercialization of Puratein(R) and Supertein(TM), the world's first food-grade canola proteins," stated Johann F. Tergesen, Burcon's President & COO who added, "We benefited from the expertise of our
