Oil is an expensive consumable, doubling and even tripling in cost over the past year. If you use it in your kitchen, we don’t have to spell this out for you. It costs a lot of money, it can cause operational challenges when disposal time comes, but for a lot of you, it produces a signature item on your menu. The big question is, what can you do to optimize your oil usage?
There are a number of ways to attack this challenge. You could invest in a low oil volume fryer, which will reduce the amount of oil you need to fill your pot and combined with certain built-in technologies (i.e. auto top off), can double the life of your oil. Another option, which many of today’s heavy frying outfits are implementing, is the use of frying oil life extending powder. A fine, pure, white compound that, when used directly in the oil or spread on your filter material can reduce a kitchen’s oil purchases significantly.
Used in any open or pressure fryer, oil life extender products can combat the ‘enemies’ of oil. Contamination, oxidation, polymerization, hydrolysis and thermal decomposition can all contribute to a shortened oil lifespan. Products like Henny Penny’s Prime Filter Powder work to diminish the effects of these ‘enemies’.
When applied to unfiltered fryer oil, Prime Filter Powder is activated during a filtration cycle. Before passing through the filter paper, the particles in the powder act as magnets, attracting and clinging to food debris, soluble liquid impurities, dissolved tastes and odors. The build-up of impurities makes the particles too large to pass through the filter paper, creating a barrier between the filtered, clean oil and the unfiltered, contaminated oil. In essence, you are reducing FFA’s (free fatty acids) and TPM (total polar material), which helps the overall health of your oil.
In short, Prime Filter Powder will help make your filtered oil that much cleaner, meaning fewer change-outs, longer oil life and more money in your wallet. Cleaner oil isn’t just great for your business, your customers will be able to tell the difference as well and will love your new, consistent flavor, smell, and golden brown delicious appearance.
