MINNEAPOLIS -- Restaurant Technologies Inc. is making available its zero trans fat low-linolenic soybean oil, RTI Max-life(TM) ZERO T LL, to restaurants serving the greater New York City; Newark, N.J.; Philadelphia; Detroit; and Greensboro, N.C., markets. Additional markets will be added during the coming months.

RTI Max-life ZERO T LL is a new generation soybean oil created with zero trans fats per serving (as defined by the FDA) that also has very low amounts of linolenic acid; the naturally occurring chemical found in ordinary soybeans which reduces the shelf life and stability of the product.

With very low linolenic acid, the new generation soybeans don't require trans-fat-producing hydrogenation, yet still yield a frying oil with a taste profile and long fry life consistent with partially hydrogenated oils. RTI Max-life(TM) ZERO T LL offers restaurant owners a cost-effective zero trans solution that maintains existing fried-food flavor characteristics.

"In addition to our Max-life(TM) family of frying oils, RTI offers the foodservice industry a Total Oil Management program, a complete end-to-end system that adds, filters and disposes of frying oil offering professional kitchens a safer and cleaner cooking environment," said Jeffrey R. Kiesel, CEO at Restaurant Technologies. "Also, our TOM(TM), 'Total Oil Management' Web site offers our customers the data, analytical tools and best practices to reduce oil usage and partially offset the added expense of higher cost of zero trans fat oils."

Restaurant Technologies Inc. provides frying oil services to more than 12,000 customers across the U.S.
