 NATIONAL INTRODUCES UNIQUE SPECIALTY STARCH FAT
 REPLACES AT PRESS CONFERENCE
 BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- During a press conference at corporate headquarters, National Starch and Chemical Company introduced a series of specialty fat mimetics under the family name, N-LITE(TM). According to the international company, these products represent successful breakthroughs in food starch technology. There are five patent applications for this new series in various stages of examination, worldwide. All the products have been designed to replace specific fats and oils by application, e.g., oils in salad dressings and fats in baked goods.
 "This important new technology should prove to be comparable to other National Starch milestones in the evolution of specialty starch technology for the food industry," said James A. Kennedy, president and CEO. "National fat mimetics have been used by food manufacturers since the early 1980's for specific applications. Today's announcement greatly expands the range of food products which can have their fat content eliminated or greatly reduced."
 In his welcoming speech to the food editors, Gary A. Zwiercan, vice president and general manager, foods products division, presented a corporate overview, and spoke enthusiastically about National's pride in the development of these unique fat replacers, saying that his company had applied its years of specialty starch technology to great advantage.
 Dr. Peter Trzasko, Natural Polymer Research, spoke about the development of patented technology for a family of ingredients tailored for specific end use applications, and how his group had worked together with the Food Products division.
 Technical presentations then followed with ongoing demonstrations of the N-LITE specialty starches in various applications, such as salad dressings, sauces and frozen desserts. In addition, the company has developed application of specific starches for meats and already formally introduced its new Slenderlean(TM) starch for low fat sausage patties.
 Among the speakers were Jim Zallie who spoke on N-LITE L and N-LITE P in the cheese sauce and pourable salad dressings; Jeffrey Laurent who spoke on N-LITE B and N-LITE F as they were used in cakes and frostings; Dr. Bill Mason who had supervised the development of N-LITE D for use in dairy products such as yogurt and sour cream; and Robert Kendall, who told the audience about the advantages of Slenderlean in three types of sausage.
 A luncheon was served after the presentations, along with a tour of National's pilot plant and state-of-the-art laboratories.
