Cranbury, NJ – May 15, 2014
Over the past several years, Paulaur’s Research and Development team has been working hard to create colorful Hydro Free Products (also called NHO or Non-Hydrogenated Oil); Sprinkles and Shapes to our product line.
The project has been in development for many years. We are undergoing the final stability tests which are scheduled to be completed by May 15, 2014. Therefore, we are pleased to announce that as of this date, Paulaur will be launching our new NHO product line to the industry and our most valued customers.
In the past we have used partially hydrogenated soybean oil to manufacture sprinkles and shapes. These products will now be manufactured using non-hydrogenated palm oil.
The FDA issued a preliminary decision that partially hydrogenated oils are not considered GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe). Because of this, we believe food companies will be required to change the oils used in the manufacturing of their food products.
According to the FDA, the expectation is that there will be a ban on trans-fats entirely to the American diet. Such movements have already taken place in other countries around the world. Trans-fats have been known to cause many health issues including an increase risk of heart disease. Quality food manufacturers are looking for ways to remove the unwanted fats from products that can cause such serious health issues.
At Paulaur, we are proud to say we hold a high standard when it comes to our products, quality and overall service. In fact, we have received a superior rating from AIB (American Institute of Baking) for many years and plan on continuing this status.
Therefore, as noted above, we will launch an NHO product line beginning May 15, 2014 to adhere to the FDA’s preliminary decision. If you have any press or sales related questions, please contact us at the numbers provided below.
