Z Trim Holdings Inc. (ZTM) is Trimming Fat Content

With headquarters in Mundelein, Illinois, Z Trim Holdings Inc. produces, markets, and distributes functional food ingredients and formulated foods in the United States and internationally. Their USDA-developed Z Trim is a natural, non-caloric ingredient that can lower calories from fat up to 50 percent in foods while allowing foods to maintain their normal taste and texture. Z Trim Holdings Inc. trades on the American Stock Exchange (AMEX).

Made from corn hulls, Z Trim can reduce harmful trans fats, saturated fats, and cholesterol. It finds use in the dairy, bakery, and meat and poultry industries. It also finds use in 50,000-plus meals a day in schools that take part in the country’s School Meals Program. Consumers can also purchase Z Trim through the company’s online store, which offers the product in powdered and gel form.

Z Trim can serve as a fat replacement, thickening agent, or emulsifier. It has texture-adding, binding, shaping, suspension, and water-control and pH balance characteristics. It can also be a lower cost alternative to many oils, gums, and starches. It is suitable for use in dairy products, dressings, dips, sauces, baked goods, processed meats, snack foods, cookies, pies, cakes, icings, brownies, bars, ice cream, and milk shakes, among a host of other foods.

Along with their corn Z Trim, the company also sells an oat Z Trim. Founded in 1994, the company markets their products via direct sales to food manufacturers, small and mid-size companies, and consumers. They also market to food institutions, which supply to restaurants, hospitals, schools, and cafeterias.

On July 22, Z Trim Holdings, Inc. exhibited and provided samples of healthier burgers, dressings, and snack bars to an estimated 7,000 food service directors and school nutrition professionals at the School Nutrition Association’s 2008 Annual Nutrition Conference (ANC) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. These products are an example of the broad spectrum of goods made with Z Trim’s natural corn fiber. In addition, Z Trim Holdings Inc. announced in July that they received an order from US Foodservice for the P.O.W.E.R Buying Group (Purchasing Organization with Educational Results). This group is a Florida buying consortium that consists of 39 county school districts totaling over 1,300 schools and serving over 115,000,000 meals a year. Z Trim continues to provide healthier alternatives to fat content to their varied customer base around the country.
