Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta July fs Would you believe Boston edible oil pie By RUSSELL OUGHTRED Herald Staff Writer was a gooa waitress. I have a cup of coffee no just edible oil... and a piece of your Boston edible oil Sounds but it's ac- curate. Every day we eat and drink more edible oil products as synthetic coffee whiteners and whip toppings gain popularity with the nation's palate and pocketbook. From cafeterias to pie factories to hotel coffee edible oil is appear- ing more frequently every day. In a Calgary pie baker has used synthetic DERME MACHINE SHOP A COMPLETE AUTOMOTIVE GENERAL MACHINE SHOP SERVICE 327-0821 Uc STREET NORTH whip topping for six years now. Reasons for its wide acceptance in the food in- dustry appear to be convenience and cost. A half-pint of whipping cream retails at 57 while oil-based whip top- pings average 35 cents per pint. A pint of coffee cream retrails at 50 while the frozen oil counterpart costs only 35 cents. edible oil products are preferred by many restaurateurs because of the absence of spoilage. One such Coffee got its start 20 years ago when a successful New York dairyman started looking for something that would last longer than conventional dairy products. When Coffee Rich leaves the Rich Products of Canada factory in Fort it travels across Canada in refrigerated trucks. Upon arrival at Lethbridge the edible oil products are kept frozen until delivery to the retailer or restaurateur. Kept edible oil products last according to distributors. they will last two to four weeks in a refrigerator. At room temperature they re- main fresh for three days.

CATTLE 11.89 14.OO 17.92 CLINT'S EQUIPMENT LIMITED In Canada By Alberta Phone 654-3534 says Coffee Rich and similar products are not Edible oil he and are than dairy creams. He says edible oil manufacturers are not try- ing to produce an artificial cream that copies the real thing. Edible oil he are not valuable as but as entirely different food products with their own selling points. Wholesaler Redmond points out that Scott National is owned by the same company that owns Palm Dairies. While Palm's salesman is out selling coffee Scott National is out selling edible oil coffee whiteners. But because the two products are so they're not com- Mr. Redmond says. Scott which specializes in restaurant keeps about Coffee Rich containers in stock for about 25 Lethbridge dining coffee cafeterias and mobile canteens that drive to construction site coffee breaks. One of Scott National's best customers is the Mar- quis Hotel. The Marquis started serving Coffee Rich three months to the apparent satisfaction of coffee says hotelman Ian Whittington. Asked whether he preferred the taste of coffee with a synthetic he says can't notice any difference and I'm not a coffee The Marquis uses Coffee Rich because edible oil doesn't spoil on the shelf and because it's cheaper than cream. A saving of 20 cents per thousand may not sound like a but when you count cups of coffee served daily in the it adds up hotel officials say. The popularity of syn- thetic topping for desserts is due to its explains a Calgary baker. Jim Watson's pie com- pany in Calgary supplies many of the pies eaten in Lethbridge restaurants. He says edible oils are used because they stand look white and don't weep. Cream pies made with dairy cream will yellow and sag with age. But Boston cream or banana cream pie made with synethetic whip topp- ing still when they reach the diner. Piemaker Watson says his firm first started using edible oil whipped toppings six years ago. Consumers haven't but also probably never notic- ed the he adds. Housefly resists chemicals Incredible edible oil meets some opposition A Herald survey has shown not everyone in the food industry is sold on syn- thetic edible oil whip top- pings and coffee whiteners. Many restaurateurs prefer 'serving customers cream. Some say cream is a superior food others say they've never tried the synthetic-counter- parts. Both hospitals in Lethbridge use the syn- thetic whip topping in patients' but neither serves coffee whitener because of chemical additives which cannot be included in all therapeutic diets. A dairy company spokesman could eat those products for 24 hours and I'm sure you'd starve to A home economist with the Milk a public relations arm of the dairy says the chemicals in synthetic dairy substitutes could be harmful to the very very old or chronrally ill. Beth Johnson says whole cream supplies the body with trace minerals the body needs to produce in- sulin and red blood cells. She said cream is essen- tial for anyone drinking skim milk because the dairy industry removes these trace minerals with the butterfat skimmed from whole milk. She said the synthetic toppings and coffee especially pop- ular with convenience shoppers and weight should be avoid- ed by anyone with illness like multiple sclerosis or arthritis. At least two Lethbridge restaurants refuse to serve synthetic edible oil El Rancho food purchaser Roy O'Neil and Hy's Steak House chef Albert Shaw prefer serving patrons cream in cream jugs. Both restaurants say they have a policy of avoiding convenience foods.

Ont. The common housefly seems to be developing some resistance to chemical solutions used to control it says Prof. Russell an en- tomologist with the depart- ment of environmental biology at the Ontario Agri- cultural College. many farmers depend entirely on chemicals to eliminate their fly he said. a houseflies seem to be developing resistance. Farmers need to set up a total fly-control with the emphasis on sanitation and proper timing of chemical wet bedding and spilled or mouldy feed provide fertile breeding areas for flies and should be he suggested. chemicals should be applied early in the season before fly pop- ulations can build up and generally reapplied peri- odically for continuous he said.
