Hot cooking oil is widely used in the fast food industry. Its quality, which is strictly regulated by different standards and parameters at the national and international level, effects directly the taste of the food and has a strong impact on the safety of fried food itself. In addition, frying oil is a meaningful cooking cost, reason why it is also referred to as “liquid gold” in the restaurant business. Extending the life of frying oil is thus an easy way to save on resources.
Well-managed, properly filtered oil, used in regularly maintained equipment, helps reduce kitchen costs and waste while increasing operational efficiency.
Ahlstrom-Munksjö has a complete portfolio of filter media for hot cooking oil, which is designed to deliver fast flow with good particle retention to maximize filtration efficiency, offering both technology and innovation for the fast food industry.
