What is Prime Filter powder?
Prime Filter Powder is a safe, pure white compound that extends frying oil life — reducing the frequency of oil purchases by as much as 50%. It removes both solids and dissolved impurities from used oil, and it meets food-grade specifications set forth by the FDA, NSF and JECFA/WHO.
How it works?
When circulating frying oil with Henny Penny Prime Filter powder during a polish filter, the powder particles are activated—acting like a magnet that attracts and removes food debris, and extracts soluble liquid impurities, dissolved tastes, and odors that spoil fried food.
By attaching these impurities together, the compounds become too large to pass through the fryer filter media and therefore cannot return to the fry vat with the clean oil.
The powder clumps on top of the filter paper/pad, the clean oil passes through the normal filtering process and is returned to the vat for use..
Enemies of oil
Almost everything including normal daily use degrades frying oil. Common enemies of oil:
- Air (oxidation)
- Moisture from food
- Detergent (alkaline contaminants)
Reducing total polar materials
Total Polar Materials (TPMs) are a chemical measure of oil degradation. Many governent bodies have enacted regulations limiting the amount of TPMs in cooking oil. Prime Filter powder attacks the molecular bonds that form to create TPMs, which in turn reduces TPM values in oil.
How does this help?
Reduces oil and labor costs
Reduces purchases of cooking oil; longer life, less investment
Saves on labor costs
Less time spent changing and disposing of oil
Improves food quality
Eliminates FFA, TPM, colors, aromas and odors, increasing product consistency.
