WHAT IS EPG?

The revolutionary new alternative fat technology is here.

Delivering Tomorrow’s Technology Today

EPG, the alternative fat, offers great taste, texture, performance and flexibility. EPG is made from GMO-free, modified plant-based oil and has just 0.7 calories/gram versus 9 calories/gram for regular fat. It is the only ingredient available right now that can cut 92% of calories from fat* without compromising taste, texture or functionality.

Because EPG is made from fat—unlike other fat substitutes that use sucrose and/or starches—you do not need to compensate with additional sugar or artificial sweeteners to maintain or improve the flavor. Proven safe and effective at lowering calories without compromises, EPG can be easily incorporated into your recipes as a 1-for-1 replacement of fat.

TASTES & ACTS LIKE FAT, BECAUSE IT’S MADE FROM FAT

Start With: Innovation and Safety

EPG was developed by food scientists ready to solve the challenge of great-tasting, reduced calorie foods. More than $150 million in R&D, 65 safety studies and 20 patents later, EPG has been evaluated at intake levels up to 150 grams/day consumption.

Naturally Sourced: From the Rapeseed Plant

We start with GMO-free rapeseed oil and split the oil apart into its components: glycerin and fatty acids.

The Technology: Propoxyl Connector

Next we insert a food-grade propoxyl connector & re-link the fatty acid and glycerin, to make a material that looks, feels, tastes and cooks like fat.

The Results: Dramatically Fewer Calories

The propoxyl link in the middle resists digestive enzyme action, inhibiting caloric release through the key part of digestion, while allowing later breakdown in the environment—safely, like any other fat.

Have It All with EPG

This breakthrough technology delivers unrivaled taste and reduced caloric availability—safely and with zero side effects.

NO DOUBT ABOUT SAFETY. EVER.

FOR PEOPLE

EPG has been rigorously tested in more than 60 studies—among the strongest data packages ever developed for a new food ingredient. EPG has achieved U.S. Food & Drug Administration Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) status across a wide range of food applications. EPG is GMO-free, gluten free, allergen free, vegan, trans-fat-free, and is made using natural vegetable oils free from genetically modified organisms (GMOs). It is fully Kosher and Halal compliant and is manufactured in GFSI benchmarked top-line facilities.

The use of EPG results in the lowest intake of polyunsaturated fats of any edible fat or oil. These benefits are in addition to EPG’s unrivaled performance in reducing calories, and amazing taste, texture, and functionality.

…AND FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

EPG is proven to be environmentally safe. Once it leaves the body, EPG degrades and decomposes like all other fats and oils.

FAQs

How is EPG different than fat substitutes?

Because EPG has a melting point of 102º F, it remains solid at body temperature and does not present any gastrointestinal side effects.

Can EPG replace all the oil or butter in my recipe?

EPG can replace 50% to 85% of fat in a formulation, depending on the application.

Does EPG have any label claims?

EPG is GMO-free, gluten-free, allergen-free, trans-fat-free, vegan, kosher and Halal.

What does EPG taste like?

Like other neutral vegetable-based fats and oils, EPG takes on the flavor of the food it is used in.

How is EPG listed on an ingredient statement?

EPG is currently being labeled as “EPG (modified plant-based oil)”
