  • Slowing the growth of TPA/FFA’s in conjunction with absorption of oil on the food products will eliminate the need to change oil

  • Remove FFA’s down to 0.07%-0.09%

  • Can recover oils with up to 0.9% FFA

•  Kettle Chips
•  Tortilla Chips
•  Nuts
•  Pork Rinds/Cracklins
•  Mozzarella Sticks
