olive oil • The passion of Italy is found in every drop of our extra virgin olive oil. Our process begins with handpicked olives exclusively from the Umbria region of Italy. We adopted the regional traditions by allowing the fruit to slowly ripen before harvesting and pressing the olives between late October and early December. This gives Gordon Signature® Extra Virgin Olive Oil a leafy aroma, a rich golden-emerald colour, and a complex melange of almond, artichoke, and chopped herb undertones. The richly layered olive taste of Gordon Signature Extra Virgin Olive Oil makes it the perfect accent for all of your salads and dipping creations. Liberally drizzle over bruschetta, antipasto, focaccia, roasted potatoes, vegetables or garlic and garnish with fresh herbs or sea salt just before serving. Buon Appetito!

• fry more® oil

IURPJRUGRQIRRGVHUYLFH Š

GFS Fry More is an innovative high stability, zero trans fat frying oil that, when proper cleaning and filtering procedures are practiced, provides 35% or more extended frying life when compared to conventional shortenings and frying oils. This unique oil has been formulated with a “Trait Enhanced” oil seed breed that provides reduced levels of polyunsaturated (linolenic and linoleic) fatty acids to enhance flavour and oxidative stability without partial hydrogenation, which is the main source of trans fatty acids in shortenings. It can be used in all applications that have traditionally used salad oils such as dressings, sauces and mayonnaise. When combined with “zero-trans” sources of solid fat, GFS Fry More can have diverse bakery applications when replacing partially hydrogenated shortenings. Product Testing: GFS Fry More was developed through stringent laboratory “Stability Testing” for frying applications including FFA, peroxide value, para-anisidine value, OSI, trace metals, mono-& diglycerides, polymers, and total polar materials.

Fryer Management Temperature

Oil Maintenance

Temperature management may be the most critical of all deep fryer management procedures. If oil temperature is too high, finished goods will be too dark, overcooked on the outside and undercooked on the inside. If oil temperature is too low, finished goods will be too light, absorb too much oil and undercooked on the inside.

Filtering will ensure the integrity of the oil and provide maximum frying life. Filtering should be performed daily at room temperature. The following procedures should be applied when filtering or changing the oil.

Cook at 350˚F (175˚C). This is the optimal fry temperature to provide proper food quality- inside and out. Check oil temperature at least 3 times per day. Using a quality thermometer, check the oil temperature at least once per shift. Most fryer thermostats are not properly calibrated and do not reflect the accurate oil temperature. Reduce oil temperature during inactive periods. Between busy serving times, reduce the temperature to 200˚F (95˚C) and shut off entirely during extended slow periods.

Frying Method

By paying attention to certain aspects of the deep-fry process, oil frying life can be extended and fried food quality maintained. • •

• • •

Maintain oil levels. Do not allow oil to fall below the fill line marked inside the cavity of the deep fryer. Frozen foods should be fried in their frozen state. Frozen foods are designed for frying in a frozen state. Do not allow them to thaw prior to cooking. Discard thawed foods that have been refrozen. Do not overfill baskets. Do not fill baskets more than half-full. This can dramatically reduce oil temperature, producing inconsistently fried food. Do not leave food in basket over fryer. Crumbs will fall back into the fryer, hastening oil breakdown. Skim oil regularly. Be aware of food particles that fall off during the frying process. Excessive crumb build-up will occur in the kettle, continue to cook, and break down the oil. Do not salt over fryer. Salt contributes to oil breakdown.

• • • • •

Remember to keep your fryer area clean from grease that is caused by steam vapours. Don’t forget to check and clean any grease buildup around the fryer hood, the vents, and the sprinkler system.

Oil Replacement

Frying with degraded oil will impart a rancid flavour to the finished goods. Here’s how you can know when it is time to change the oil. • • • •

v1_082011_CAL

Empty the oil from the kettle and wipe the kettle free of crumbs. Clean the kettle by filling it with water and adding the manufacturer-recommended amount of detergent. With baskets in the kettle, boil water for the recommended time to remove polymers. Drain and scrub kettle with a kettle brush, making sure to scrub around heating coils. Rinse kettle with clean water, refill and boil water for 15 minutes. Neutralize detergent residue by adding 1 litre of vinegar and continuing to boil for 15 additional minutes. Drain kettle of all liquid and wipe dry. Refill kettle with filtered or new oil, being careful not to splash. Splashing causes oxidation, which is a leading culprit of oil breakdown.

Taste the oil. Each day, after the oil has cooled, taste itlooking for the presence of a strong, acidic flavour. Taste the finished goods. Periodically sample the flavour of the finished goods to ensure they do not possess the acidic taste or pungent aroma of deteriorated oil. Watch for smoking. It is time to change the oil when excessive smoking appears. Watch for foaming. This process starts when light golden foam clings to the sides of the kettle, eventually spreading to the entire top surface area, indicating that it is time to replace the oil.
