A Plum Borough School District has become the first school in the United States to start using a fat replacement substance called Z Trim in its cafeteria food.
A Plum Borough School District has become the first school in the United States to start using a fat replacement substance called Z Trim in its cafeteria food. The new fat substitute is already approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and offers a healthful alternative to people who want to cut down on fat without losing the yum taste.
The ersatz fat, called Z-Trim is made from a variety of low-cost agricultural byproducts such as hulls of oats, soybeans, peas and rice, or bran from corn or wheat. It helps you eat healthier and lose weight by substituting the fatty salad dressings with Z-Trim additive,
Though it has been used in the Plum school’s cafeteria food for the past 10 months every day, the authorities just told the students about the switch Thursday.
Juliann Sheldon, a 16-year-old student from the school says she really likes the taste as actually feels it better than her “ranch at home.”
The food additive preserved the flavor of food and since it is made from natural way and is USDA approved, there is little concern about harmful effects.
A person who normally eats 3,500 calories a day could cut as many as 700 calories by eating the same kinds of food in the same volume, but adding about half an ounce of Z-Trim to replace fat.
