Soy Z-Trim and Non-GMO Oat Z-Trim Expand FiberGel's Line of Fat Replacers

European and Asian markets, which are typically interested in food products that are classified as non-genetically modified organisms (non-GMO), can now cut the fats and calories in their foods with non-GMO oat Z-Trim.

FiberGel Technologies, a subsidiary of Circle Group Holdings (Amex: CXN), launched its new non-GMO oat Z-Trim and soy Z-Trim this week.

The new lines enable FiberGel to broaden its markets for its zero calorie specialty food ingredient, which can be used to replace percentages of fats in most recipes while adding nutritious dietary fiber. The new Z-Trim options will be produced at the Company's production facility in Mundelein using separate production lines.

"Due to the strong interest in Z-Trim from Europe and Asia, we have launched the new group of products to meet their rigorous requirements," said Rick Harris, VP of sales and marketing for FiberGel Technologies, Inc. "The new lines are already generating interest from new companies, as well as from those with whom we have an ongoing relationship," he said.. "Our international partner, DKSH, a firm with over 140 years of experience, will be heading up our sales and marketing in Europe."

The announcement was made over the weekend at the annual Institute of Food Technologists show and expo, the largest food ingredient show in the world. The show is for food scientists and related professionals, and this year features an estimated 1000 exhibitors, 1800 presentations, 55 symposia and 20,000 attendees.
