The American Culinary Federation, Inc. (ACF), the nation’s premier organization for professional chefs and cooks, has awarded four Tristar Products, Inc.’s Jack LaLanne juicers – the Power Juicer Classic, Power Juicer Express, Power Juicer Pro and Power Juicer Elite – its prestigious Seal of Approval. The products were submitted for extensive testing and were approved by members of ACF’s Seal of Approval committee, effective May 21, 2010.
“The Power Juicer will proudly display the American Culinary Federation’s Seal of Approval,” said Jack LaLanne. “This endorsement indicates that the juicer is a reliable kitchen appliance that is indispensable to everyone seeking to create nutritionally rich drinks for better health.”
Keith Davis, CEC, AAC, chair of the Seal of Approval committee, applied the organization’s rigorous testing criteria to the Jack LaLanne juicers, evaluating for application, physical properties, performance, packaging standards, and accuracy of labels and marketing materials.
“The Jack LaLanne products were tested using a variety of juices as well as juices used in hot-food items such as soups and sauces,” said Davis. “The products passed tests on physical performance, performance when various products were applied, and proved to be adaptable to various cooking and presentation procedures. ACF is proud to award these four products with our distinguished seal of approval.”
“With the endorsement of this organization of kitchen professionals, the Jack LaLanne Power Juicer has another distinction that sets it apart,” said Keith Mirchandani, CEO of Tristar Products, Inc. “We are grateful to the American Culinary Federation for bestowing its Seal of Approval, which proves the Power Juicer’s patented extraction technology performs effectively and consistently.”
The ACF Seal of Approval program offers foodservice manufacturers the opportunity to have products endorsed by the premier organization of professional chefs in the U.S. Unlike other entities that offer tasting endorsements only, the ACF Seal requires extensive product testing and evaluation. After three years, ACF determines if the product needs to be retested.
