FreshFry, the sustainable food tech company providing restaurants with all-natural, plant-based frying oil filtering solutions, has launched a series of frying oil test kits.
The kits offer both restaurants a user-friendly and cost-efficient way to check the status of frying oils used to make fried food recipes – a critical component in an overall frying oil management strategy.
FreshFry co-founder and CEO, Jeremiah Chapman, said: “Maintaining clean, fresh oil enhances the flavor and overall appearance of fried foods, and the test kits, fit for the home chef and commercial kitchens, are a safe, credible, and sustainable guide for users to see when it’s time to filter or change out their oil.”
The newly launched frying oil test kit, which costs $12.99, analyzes the contaminant levels in fryer oil, which indicate when it’s time to filter or change out the frying oil.
When using the kits in conjunction with FreshFry Pods, the test kits can help to determine the extension achieved over the life of oil.
Users can take a sample of fry oil with the included dropper that lets them visually compare the color to best determine if the oil is reusable or ready to be discarded.
The Louisville, KY-based company offers both standard kits with a general discard color as well as custom kits to suit a brand’s specific discard needs.
