MUNDELEIN, Ill., Jan. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Z Trim Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: ZTMH), manufacturer of multifunctional fiber ingredients, and World Technology Ingredients (WTI), a specialty ingredients company to the meat and poultry industries, today announced that Z Trim ingredients will be represented to the meat industry via WTI.
Based in Jefferson, Georgia, where they maintain a state-of-the-art, 46,000 foot manufacturing, warehousing and distribution facility, WTI has been selling food ingredients nationally and internationally since 1978 and has become a leader in marination products and technologies. WTI has assembled a strong and highly experienced group of food scientists, researchers, sales staff and executives who understand the food industry inside and out.
"A few of the attributes our meat industry customers desire from the ingredients we offer are increased yields, alternatives to synthetically manufactured ingredients, and marinade retention and improved water holding capacity," says Robert Brooks, Technical Specialist at WTI. "Z Trim offers all that and more in a manner that contributes to a consumer-friendly label and a greater competitive advantage for our customers."
Z Trim presents a multitude of benefits across food categories because it is taste neutral, prebiotic, insoluble/soluble dietary fiber that improves texture, stabilizes emulsions, controls water activity, and replaces fat and calories while increasing yields. It is used by the manufacturers of meat products, sauces and dressings, dough, emulsions and mashes, extruded snacks, nutritional drinks, desserts and fillings, and processed dairy and egg products.
"Our multifunctional fiber ingredients represent a good fit with WTI's clean label approach and the expertise of their partner, Newly Weds Foods' IsoStat Products Group, in the development and use of functional specialty ingredients in meats," said Steve Cohen CEO of Z Trim Holdings. "We look forward to being included in their product portfolios.
"WTI will be a part of our foundation for global growth within the food industry," he added. "We intend to use distributors, both domestic and international, to help us not only increase our sales, but also to decrease the sales cycle time in order to achieve greater sales in a shorter period of time."
Z Trim continues to build similar relationships with distribution companies having strengths in the many food categories to which Z Trim brings unique attributes and benefits.
