ARAMARK Trims The Fat From Ballpark Food


PHILADELPHIA - As demand for healthier menu options continues to grow among baseball fans, ARAMARK has converted to a zero grams trans fat fryer oil in all of its baseball stadiums’ dining locations just in time for the 2007 baseball season. This conversion coincides with research, conducted by ARAMARK, which provides concessions and premium culinary services to 13 Major League Baseball teams, that shows consumers are more concerned than ever with their intake of trans fats.

Beginning with Opening Day of the 2007 baseball season, ARAMARK will use non-hydrogenated corn and sunflower oil containing zero grams of trans fat that provides the same great taste fans have come to expect from their favorite ballpark food. ARAMARK worked with suppliers, dietitians and chefs to identify new oil that offers the best combination of value, performance, taste delivery and health profile.

“While traditional ballpark favorites continue to be the most popular menu items, ARAMARK is committed to identifying and providing a wide range of choices that enhance the overall game day experience, as well as promote a healthy lifestyle,” said Ned Paynter, Executive Vice President, ARAMARK Stadiums and Arenas. “By converting to new fryer oil, fans can continue to enjoy the quality and taste of their favorite food, as well as try new items, all while reducing their consumption of trans fats.”

In recent years ARAMARK has enhanced its menus by adding a variety of healthy choices, including assorted salads and wraps, fruit bowls, carrot and celery sticks, veggie dogs, organic burgers, vegetable chili, grilled chicken, deli sandwiches, and grilled corn on the cob.
