An all-natural, zero-calorie fat substitute known as “Z-Trim”, originally developed by the USDA is now available through FiberGel Technologies, Inc. Z-Trim can be added to food as an ingredient to replace traditional fats such as Crisco, cooking oils, lard, etc. or used in recipes to help people to lose weight without giving up the foods they love.
(PRWEB) June 8, 2005 -- Z-Trim, an all-natural, zero-calorie fat
substitute made from grains, which was originally developed by the
Agricultural Research Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is now
available through FiberGel Technologies, Inc. The Z-Trim fat
substitute has been shown to help people lose weight without giving up the
foods they love, or allow them to eat more of their favorite foods without the
fear of gaining weight.
By adding Z-Trim to their high fat foods such as mayonnaise and butter, people can now lower their fat and calories up to 50% without affecting the taste or texture of foods. One other major benefit is that Z-Trim will improve digestion and does not carry any negative side effects associated with some other fat substitutes.
“With the Center for Disease Control declaring obesity an epidemic, Z-Trim is an ideal solution,” said Triveni P. Shukla, Ph.D., Vice President of Technology Development at FiberGel Technologies, Inc. “When Z-Trim is used to lower calories in your food, you can eat more of the foods you love while staying under your calorie allowance, and still lose weight.”
Z-Trim can be used to lower calories and reduce fat and carbs in two ways: as a fat substitute in any recipe, or by adding Z-Trim to store-bought products to reduce fat. Z-Trim is safe to use in a wide variety of foods, including:
- Dairy Products like ice cream, coffee creamer, and cream cheese
- Baked Goods such as brownies, cookies, and cakes
- High-Fat Foods like gravies, dips, salad dressing, and peanut butter
- Meat Products, including sausage, beef patties, and marinades
- Beverage Products as a fiber supplement to juices, soft drinks, and powdered drink mixes
- Candies, condiments, seasonings, and soups
The Z-trim fat substitute is available in both gel and powder form, making it suitable for use in both dry and wet foods. To order a trial supply of the Z-Trim fat substitute or to learn more about its uses and benefits, visit www.ZTrim.com or call 847-549-6002.
The Z-Trim fat substitute is the only amorphous cellulose from cereals and legumes available commercially to the global food and beverage industry. It is a dietary fiber with unparalleled food formulation functions. FiberGel Technologies has received three process patents and filed twenty-two application patents and twelve more process patents in order to protect its exclusive technology for producing the Z-Trim fat substitute. The technology is also protected by two trade secrets.
