SunGarden™ Seed Partners with Agri-Neo to Revolutionize Food Safety in the Sprouting Industry: Organic, Eco-Friendly Seed Treatment Replaces Caustic Chemicals and Achieves Highest Pathogen Reduction

  COOKEVILLE, Tenn., effective March 15, 2019 --International Specialty Supply, a global leader in the sprouting industry, introduces SunGarden™Seed, the ultimate premium line of sprouting seed that tackles the biggest fear surrounding sprout consumption: the risk of foodborne illnesses. According to the Center of Disease Control, since 1996, there have been more than 30 foodborne illness outbreaks traced back to sprouts; most outbreaks were traced back to contaminated seed. Similar outbreaks may be eliminated by using SunGarden™Seed’s new pathogen reduction process. In an exclusive partnership with Agri-Neo Inc., SunGarden™Seed utilizes Agri-Neo’s EPA and FDA-approved Neo-Pure™ technology to achieve a 4-log (10,000 times less) to 6-log (1,000,000 times less) reduction of pathogens while safeguarding the nutritional profile, germination, taste, and texture of the seed. Industry standard sanitation processes achieve only a 3-log (1,000 times less) reduction of pathogens while also using harsh chemicals. Agri-Neo’s all-natural, scientifically-validated Neo-Pure™ solution provides a higher reduction of pathogens compared to the industry standard. This pathogen reduction process combined with SunGarden™ Seed’s already-proven seed testing protocol are

Erucin

Erucin, a new promising cancer chemopreventive agent from rocket salads, shows anti-proliferative activity on human lung carcinoma A549 cells. FoodChem Toxicol. 2009 Jul;47(7):1430-6.Epub 2009 Mar 27. Melchini A, Costa C, Traka M, Miceli N, Mithen R, De Pasquale R, Trovato A. Dip.Farmaco-Biologico,Facoltà di Farmacia, Università di Messina, VillaggioAnnunziata, 98168 Messina,Italy. Erucin (ER) is a dietaryisothiocyanate present in cruciferous vegetables, such as rocket salads (Erucasativa Mill.,Diplotaxis sp.), that has been recently considered a promising cancer chemopreventivephytochemical. Biological activity of ER was investigated on human lung adenocarcinoma A549 cells, analyzing its effects on molecular pathways involved in apoptosis and cell cycle arrest, such as PARP-1 cleavage, p53 and p21 protein expression. Our results show that ER affects the A549 cell proliferation, enhancing significantly p53 and p21 protein expression in a dose-dependent manner (p<0.001). PARP-1 cleavage occurs only after exposure to high concentrations of ER (50 microM), in accordance to previous studies showing similar bioactivity of other isothiocyanates (ITCs). Our study reports for the first time that the induction of p53, p21 and PARP-1
