Z Trim Holdings, Inc. operates as a bio-technology company. The company owns existing, and develops new products and processes that transform agricultural by-products into multi-functional ingredients used in food manufacturing and other industries. The company, through a license to technology patented by the United States Department of Agriculture, has developed products that manage moisture to help reduce production costs and improve nutritional value in finished foods, while maintaining the essential taste and mouth-feel associated with full-fat products. Products The company’s core product portfolio of multifunctional food ingredients includes Corn Z Trim (both GMO and non-GMO) and Oat Z Trim. Z Trim is being used by food manufacturers world-wide, across a multitude of food categories, such as meats, sauces, soups, dressings, baked goods, fillings, toppings, prepared meals, dairy products, frozen handheld snacks, and pizza dough. The global market for the company’s line of products spans the entire food and nutritional beverage industry, including fat-free, low-fat, reduced-fat and full-fat, across meats, baked goods, dairy and non-dairy products, snacks, beverages, dressings, sauces and dips. In 2013, the company entered into a joint development agreement with Newpark Drilling Fluids LLC, a subsidiary of Newpark Resources, Inc., to develop drilling fluids that incorporate the company’s proprietary industrial materials that could replace products, such as guar and xanthan gums in drilling applications. Product Distribution The company is developing its food ingredient market through direct and brokered sales to major food manufacturers, as well as small and mid size companies for packaged retail foods; and direct and brokered sales to large and small foodservice manufacturers that supply to restaurants, hospitals, schools and cafeterias. Customers The company’s customers are primarily food manufacturers. Intellectual Property The company protects intangible assets that include patents pending and issued, as well as trade secrets and know how. Central to this portfolio is an exclusive license to the U.S. Patent No. 5,766,662, including all related international patents. The company’s license expires upon the expiration of the underlying patent in 2015. In 2012 the company, jointly with the USDA, filed a provisional patent for its Bio-Fiber Gum line of products, seeking patent protection for the composition of matter, process for making, as well as applications for, its proprietary soluble fibers. Research and Development The company’s research and development team, in conjunction with customers and strategic industry partners, including the USDA, continues to work on the development of additional products and applications. The company spent $65,867 in 2013 on research and development. History Z Trim Holdings, Inc. was founded in 1994. The company was incorporated in the state of Illinois in 1994.
