Z Trim is thrilled with the opportunity. "We want to respond to young, creative people interested in bringing sensible and innovative solutions into the field with them as they graduate," Versten said. "We're happy to introduce the ProStart participants to the versatility and attributes of our multifunctional ingredient."
ProStart is a national program whose curriculum is written by the NRA. The MHEF ProStart program has recruited students from Baltimore's National Academy Foundation (NAF) High School to prepare a cheese sauce Queso dip with substantially reduced fat. Their preparation will take place on the demo stage on Wednesday September 17th at 3:15pm on the Nation's Restaurant News Chef Demo Stage under the guidance of Chef/Instructor Steve Hinnant. As well, the students will make mini pumpkin muffins that Z Trim will sample at booth #165.
