Evelyn Kilronomos, a registered dietitian for the Volusia County School District in Florida, stated, "In 15 years in the industry, I have never seen a product like Z Trim.  We are able to remove fat and calories from staple food items, and the kids don't even know the difference because Z Trim does not change the taste or texture of the foods.  We are just beginning to see how Z Trim can help improve our nutritionals across a wide range of food items that we currently serve."

"Healthy foods do no good if kids won't eat them," said Lynda Carroll, Z Trim's VP of Sales and Applications.  "Schools around the country are thrilled to see how Z Trim's natural ingredients can help processors produce the foods that kids love, while still meeting the calorie, fat and sodium standards required by the USDA."  Carroll continued, "It's very gratifying to see this translate into increased sales of our ingredients, both to school districts with commissaries that make their own meals, as well as to food service manufacturers selling finished items directly to the districts."

For more detailed information on how Z Trim ingredients can help schools remove as much as 32,000 calories per year from current school meals, while still appealing to children's finicky tastes, click on the attached presentation Z Trim School Nutrition Presentation.
