Saving Money on Groceries: FoodSaver(R) Vacuum Packaging Systems Help You Stop Throwing Away Food

Apr 05, 2001, 01:00 ET from TILIA

    SAN FRANCISCO, April 5 /PRNewswire/ -- You wouldn't throw dollar bills in
 the trash, yet studies show that the average American household throws away
 155 pounds of food each year.  This finding was based on research conducted in
 1999 by Timothy W. Jones, Ph.D., a contemporary archeologist at the University
 of Arizona's Bureau of Applied Research in Anthropology.  That's a significant
 amount of wasted money.

     FoodSaver(R) systems -- from TILIA, the leader in home vacuum packaging --
 help you stop wasting food by keeping it fresh three to five times longer in
 the refrigerator, freezer or pantry.
     FoodSaver appliances also eliminate freezer burn.  This means less food
 goes to waste.
     FoodSaver systems also save money because they allow you to take advantage
 of seasonal buys, specials and bulk purchases.  You can buy a flat of
 strawberries at the lowest price in the peak of the season, and freeze them
 for months without any risk of freezer burn with the FoodSaver machine.  You
 can buy meat, poultry or cheese at bulk price savings and vacuum package
 individual, meal-sized quantities for use in the future.
     FoodSaver systems are easy-to-use countertop appliances that keep food
 fresh longer simply by storing them in a vacuum.  They create a commercial-
 quality vacuum, unlike conventional food storage bags and containers that trap
 air and moisture inside.  Oxygen, a major cause of food spoilage, degrades
 texture, flavor and nutritional value.
     FoodSaver systems come with a supply of patented FoodSaver Bags.  The bags
 have a patented system of air channels to ensure that air is removed quickly
 and completely, and an outer nylon layer to protect against air and moisture.
 FoodSaver Bags are microwavable, boilable, washable, re-sealable and even
 dishwasher safe.
     Some FoodSaver models also come with a port to vacuum package in FoodSaver
 Canisters, jars, bottles and cans.  This means you can vacuum package almost
 every type of food -- even some liquids -- in order to keep them fresh longer.
